Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten ALL TIME Favourite Authors

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week’s prompt is Top Ten ALL TIME Favourite Authors, which was a lot harder than it sounds. The top five are probably constant, though the others could shift up or down or maybe even be replaced, depending on my mood. But they are all authors that make me react like Jake the dog when someone interrupts me:

  1. J.K. Rowling
  2. Neil Gaiman
  3. Libba Bray
  4. Melissa Marr
  5. Lemony Snicket/Daniel Handler
  6. Jonathan Stroud
  7. Ellie Marney
  8. Page Morgan
  9. Robin Benway
  10. Gail Carson Levine

A year ago, Ellie Marney and Page Morgan would not have been on this list, but after discovering them over the past few months (Marney’s Every series and Morgan’s The Dispossessed trilogy), I can say with certainty that they made it onto my “as soon as they release a new book, I’m going to run screaming to the bookstore” list.

Actually, a year ago, Neil Gaiman wouldn’t have been on this list either, and my reading life would not have been nearly as FULFILLING as it is now that I’ve “discovered” him (why did it take me so long to read his books?!? WHY?!!).

      Thanks for reading/commenting! :)

There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about:
