Top Ten Tuesday: ALL-TIME Favorite Authors

Firstly: HOW DARE YOU?

Secondly: Ok, wasn’t as hard as I thought… The first six came to me without even having to open up my Goodreads’ Read shelf. (More about the other four below.)

Potential All-Time Faves

I picked these because I have a VERY good feeling about them, but I’ve only read a couple of their books so far. I’m very confident about them joining the ranks of my all-time favorite authors from just those few reads.

    I need to read SO MANY of these! I have yet to finish the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, I want to read OUTLANDER, I have ME BEFORE YOU, and I need to read books from Melina Marchetta and Trish Doller. And yesss, Sarah Dessen (ALONG FOR THE RIDE is my favorite with THIS LULLABY in a close second)!

    Oh yes to Jojo Moyes I can’t believe she is not on my list because I love her. But then again, narrowing down this list to ten was SO HARD.

      LOL For me, it was more difficult narrowing down my Potential All-Time Faves because the others are pretty much set in stone. I’m sure in a couple more years my list of 10 will be harder to narrow down too.

    John Greens books is so good. I have books by Jojo Moyes and Maggie Stiefvater in my shelf, but i have not read them yet.

    There were a few choices like Richelle Mead I almost put on my list. I do LOVE the VA series. I also put Maggie Stiefvater! Great list!

      Thanks, Sarah! Richelle Mead was an instant add for me. I love VA, but I LOOVE her adult Georgina Kincaid series, as well as all her other adult books. :D I love that Maggie made your list! YAYY!

  5. Quinn's Book Nook

    I love, love, love Maggie Stiefvater, and almost added her to my list. She’s in the potential category at the moment, but I think she will be an all-time favorite.

    I’m so there with you on Richelle Mead! I’ve enjoyed her Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series. I’d like to read more of her books. My husband is enjoying her Age of x series. :]

  7. Ellie

    Jojo Moyes is fabulous! I’ve not read one I haven’t enjoyed yet, though I get the feeling some of her earlier ones may vary, but that’s allowed. Her new stuff is awesome :D

  8. Danielle @ Love at First Page

    Great list, lady! Melina Marchetta will always be #1! But I love John Green, Maggie Steifvater, and Richelle Mead (when she’s not writing triangles lol), too. And I still need to read Laini Taylor’s series!
