Top Ten All-Time Favourite Authors
Top Ten Tuesday is, as always, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is a hard one -- my top ten all-time favourite authors!
1. Lauren Oliver
Although I didn't LOVE Panic, and still haven't read either Rooms or Vanishing Girls, my love for Before I Fall and Delirium have solidified Lauren as one of my all-time favourite authors.
2. Sarah J. Maas
I'm relatively new to the Throne of Glass bandwagon, but holy crap this girl can write! I'm counting down the days until A Court of Thorns & Roses, which will hopefully tide me over until Queen of Shadows is released.
3. Andrew Davidson
This man has only written one book, The Gargoyle, but WHAT A BOOK. I've read it three times, and it is absolutely one of my all-time favourite books!
4. Ann-Marie MacDonald
I still haven't found the words to review her latest release, Adult Onset, but a review will be forthcoming, as a finished copy was kindly sent to me for review by Random House. Fall on Your Knees and The Way the Crow Flies are two of my all-time favourite books, and she Canadian, eh?
5. Jojo Moyes
Again, I still haven't read all of her books, but I've loved each and every one that I have read thus far, so I'm sure that the rest of her books are just as phenomenal.
6. Katie Cotugno
I loved How to Love when I read it last year, and was equally dazzled by her upcoming release 99 Days. She's now an auto-buy author for me.
7. Kate DiCamillo
Kate is a middle grade author, but The Tale of Desperaux and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane top my all-time favourite books list forever and ever.
8. Sarah Dessen
I have yet to read her latest release, but I have read and loved all of her other books. There's just something about the way she weaves the perfect contemporary story.
9. J.K. Rowling
I considered not adding her to this list, as I tried reading The Casual Vacancy and gave up after only a chapter or two; however, my love for the Harry Potter series necessitates having her on this list.
10. Jodi Picoult
Again, I contemplated leaving Jodi off this list, because some of her more recent releases haven't been as spectacular as some of her older books, but I loved Nineteen Minutes and Second Glance SO much that I had to include her. We can't all be perfect all the time, and her great books definitely make up for the ones that were only okay.
