Top Ten Author BFFs
This week’s topic is Top Ten Favourite Authors. I’ve concluded that the girls at The Broke and The Bookish are just cruel. I’m going to try and not make this too predictable (I said try), I’m also linking up any reviews I’ve written for books by these authors, so here we go!
1. J K Rowling – Author of Harry Potter. Did you think she wasn’t going to be on this list? Really?
2. Colleen Hoover – Author of Maybe Someday, Ugly Love, Losing Hope, Hopeless and Never Never. CoHo is my big love from 2014… I’m pretty sure I have Brandie to thank for this addiction. She does contemporary romance like no other author I’ve ever read. All hail the Queen!
3. Sarah J Maas – author of Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire. I’m so excited for this series, that I just can’t even function. I was petrified of reading it because of the hype. But I’m in love. I’m so in love!
4. Roxane Gay – author of Bad Feminist. OK, so I’ve only read one book of hers so far, but she is still a favourite. Bad Feminist was a fantastic read that I’m sure to pick up again and again. It should be compulsory reading in schools everywhere. If you’re remotely interested in feminism, racism, human rights or equality – pick it up.
5. Cassandra Clare – author of The Mortal Instruments series. I own The Infernal Devices, but I haven’t gotten to them yet. Clare is an autobuy author for me, I’ll keep devouring books set in the Shadowhunter world until I sicken myself off them, which with the number of series she has planned in that universe, is entirely possible.
6. Katie McGarry – author of Pushing the Limits and Dare You To. I own more McGarry books that I haven’t read yet either, but so far, she’s definitely one of my favourite contemporary writers. Her work is addictive and a great big guilty pleasure read for me.
7. Jodi Picoult – oddly, I’ve never reviewed a Picoult book on my blog, even though I own almost all of her backlist. If you like well written stories that explore “issues” such as family dynamics, ethics and a variety of illnesses and conditions, then look no further – Picoult has you covered. Personal favourites include House Rules, The Storyteller and Handle With Care.
8. Diane Chamberlain – another favourite author I’ve yet to review on this blog, although I did get to interview her, which is a blogging highlight for me! My rule of thumb is if you like Picoult, you’ll like Chamberlain. Great, solid story-telling but with a bit more meat!
9. Philippa Gregory – author of The Cousins’ War series. This is thee author that sparked my interest in historical fiction and made me completely fall for the Plantagenets/Tudor era of history, if only my teachers could see me now! I gobble that stuff up.
10. Meg Cabot and Jacqueline Wilson – I couldn’t decide between these two favourite childhood authors, and they deserve a spot on this list because even though I haven’t read anything by them in quite a few years, they still regularly come up in conversations about my reading habits. Old school nostalgia at its finest.
Uhhh. My list is all females. I need to work on that. Anyone have any amazing male author recs??
Are any of the authors who made my list favourites of yours too? Do you have any recs for me based on this list? Link me up to your Top Ten Tuesday post in the comments and let me know!
