Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Authors

April 21, 2015 Memes 6

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we list our top 10 book-related things. This week is Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Authors.

Oldies But Goodies

Tamora Pierce

Meg Cabot

J. K. Rowling

1. Tamora Pierce | She’s been my favorite author since I discovered her books when I was in middle school. It probably helps that she has written so many books, so many series all of awesome fantasies with wonderful heroines that I can’t help but adore everything she writes. My only qualm is that I wish she would write a bit faster.

2. Meg Cabot | When I read the Royal Wedding a couple months ago, it reminded me how much I still love Meg Cabot’s writing. Mia is so relatable, and while I haven’t read all of Meg Cabot’s books I’m definitely hoping that I’ll get around to some of her adult fiction this year.

3. J. K. Rowling | This is a given. Harry Potter changed my life, and I wish that she would go back to writing YA so very badly.

Newly discovered favorites that I hope will remain so!

Rainbow Rowell Marissa Meyer


4. Rainbow Rowell | I LOVED Fangirl, Attachments, and Landline! I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with.

5. Marissa Meyer | Oh, yes the Lunar Chronicles. These books are incorporate fairytales in such a unique way and they are just sooo addicting that I feel need the shout I NEED WINTER NOW almost every other day. AND I’m excited to see that Marissa Meyer is going to do an Alice and Wonderland spinoff too.

Kasie West Gail Carriger

Richelle Mead

6. Kasie West | I simply couldn’t get enough of the Pivot Point duology and I’m secretly hoping that she writes some spinoff or companion books for it.

7. Richelle Mead | She just writes these incredibly binge-worthy series that I can’t get enough of.

8. Gail Carriger | I just discovered her books in the past couple months, but I’m really enjoying them. So far the Parasol Protectorate series has been amazing, and there are promising books I haven’t gotten to yet with her Finishing School series set in the same world.

Emery Lord

Stephanie Perkins

9. Emery Lord | I adored Open Road Summer and The Start of Me and You, so I’m hoping that she keeps up writing these amazing contemporaries with wonderful female friendships.

10. Stephanie Perkins | I loved Anna, Lola, and Isla. They were the perfect kind of fluffy contemporaries.

I think it’s a lot harder for authors who mainly write standalones to stand the test of time and actually become one of my favorites, but I think that Rainbow Rowell, Kasie West, Emery Lord, and Stephanie Perkins may do it if they keep coming out with such amazing books!

Who are your favorite authors?

    I love quite a few of these authors! Stephanie Perkins is a great one. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book so fast as hers. Meg Cabot is a good one too. She was probably my first favorite author in middle school, although I loved All American Girl more than The Princess Diaries.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT.
