Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten All-Time Favorite Authors.
- Jane Austen - I’ve read 4 out of her 6 published novels. I still plan to read the other two, but so far Jane Austen will always be a favorite.
- Lurlene McDaniel - I mostly read Lurlene McDaniel from the age of 10/11 to 13/14 years old. I can’t even tell you how many of her books I’ve read. She will always be one of my lifetime favorite authors.
- Colleen Hoover - I’ve read every published work by Colleen Hoover (10 thus far, I believe). She hasn’t been doing this book thing for too terribly long, but I’ve devoured every single one of her books.
- Richelle Mead - I haven’t read most of Richelle Mead’s adult books, but I’ve read 16 books by her total at this point so I think that’s enough to clue her into my lifelong favorites.
- Katie McGarry - Again, Katie McGarry is another author that hasn’t been doing this book thing for too long, but like Colleen Hoover, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every single book that I’ve read by her (5 in total so far).
- JK Rowling - While I haven’t read Casual Vacancy or any of her books published under her pseudonym (Robert Galbraith), I will never ever forget the place that Harry Potter has in my heart. JK Rowling will forever be a literary genius in my mind for that alone.
- Maggie Stiefvater - I’ve read 10 books so far by Maggie Stiefvater. I struggled through The Raven Boys, but every other one has been nothing but enjoyable.
- Kasie West - I’ve only read 3 books by Kasie West so far. But I love how what I have read has crossed genres. Not all authors are able to do that successfully. Even though I don’t have many Kasie West books behind me, I still know that I’ll enjoy pretty much anything she publishes.
- Tahereh Mafi - I hesitated to put Tahereh Mafi on this list because I’ve only read one series by her and I don’t know that one series really makes a standout author. Sometimes you can have a brilliant series but then bomb on your other stuff. But I adored the strike method she used, and I highlighted huge chunks of her books at one time. Her writing style is beautiful enough to make this cut. (I’ve read 3 books & 1 novella by her.)
- Michelle Hodkin - Ok just like Tahereh Mafi, I really hesitate to put Michelle Hodkin on this list. I’ve only read 2 books by her so far, and since I haven’t finished the Mara Dyer series, there’s a chance that she could totally bomb the last book for me and be kicked off the list immediately. But as of now, in this moment, Michelle Hodkin’s writing also qualifies because of its beauty. I might have to re-evaluate at the end of the series, but we’ll see.
