Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Flavor



 




TOP 10 FAVORITE AUTHORS




1. Cassandra Clare 


Clare made me love Steampunk with her Infernal Devices series. I know she's mostly renowned for the Mortal Instruments, and to me, an author who is able to juggle two successful series at the same time is quite remarkable.  









2. Sarah Dessen

Another author with a book to movie adaptation, is Dessen. Her work is always character driven, leaving the reader with a complete profile of the MC in and out. 


3. J.K.Rowling 


I'm happy to mention Rowling in this countdown. It means that no matter how many books I read, her work remain with me. She is such a magical being. 











4. Richelle Mead 

Awww, these book covers should have been kept. Of course, no matter what the covers look like, the words inside remain the same -- enchanting. 










5. Ally Carter 


Love her mysteries, particularly, the Heist Society series, which was supposed to be turned into a movie but sadly, never did. 












6. John Green 


I might not have been Paper Towns biggest fan, but that doesn't mean I would exclude Green from this list. I still feel he wrote a masterpiece with The Fault in our Stars






7. India Desjardins

The way Desjardins represents the single women of today struggling with Instagram, Tinder, and grandmas who refuse to give family recipes because ''they are written for a family of four''  is funny/bitter/funny again. I can't wait for these to be translated in English. 









8. E. Lockhart


I loved her even before this book, does that count? 












9. Carolyn Meyer

History was never a favorite topic of mine until I encountered a Meyer book. I've been collecting them and sharing them ever since. 






10. Mo Willems


He's a genius to me. His writing is funny/clever. And there is always opportunity to do voices. Hope to one day be able to write a children's book with half his wit.

  1. I do love Mo Willems! I can't believe I forgot Richelle Mead and John Green. It was hard to narrow it down to ten. I would have added JK Rowling, but I decided to list YA only and she's technically not YA. Great list!

  2. OOh nice! Some new to me ones here but I too chose Richelle Mead! Love her books! And though I didn't specify Rowling, it's pretty much a given that every Top Ten Tuesdays includes Harry Potter/J.K. Rowling! LOL!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I just recently read We Were Liars and really, really enjoyed it. It was my first E. Lockhart book, but I'm definitely interested in reading more from her. Do you have any recommendations for what I should go for first?

    Great list, by the way!
