Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is a Freebie, so I decided to go with the top 10 authors I feel I should probably read. Some have specific books I have my eye on, some don’t, but either way, I want to read them eventually! Here are my choices, in no particular order.
1. Sarah Addison Allen, author of Garden Spells
2. L.M. Montgomery, author of Anne Of Green Gables
I had no idea how much people loved these books until I had been blogging for a while. I knew of them as a kid but I was just never interested in them (like Harry Potter… clearly my younger self didn’t know anything).
3. Ruta Sepetys, author of Between Shades of Gray
I don’t know why I’m so drawn to read Ruta Sepetys and yet haven’t yet. Too many other books! She was at a writing conference I attended last year, and though I didn’t get to hear much from her she seems really neat. And she lives in Tennessee!
4. Madeleine L’Engle, author of A Wrinkle in Time
Again, late to the game here. Actually, the book of hers I’m most interested in reading is called Walking on Water, which Annie quoted multiple times in a blog post and it really piqued my interest!
5. Shannon Hale, author of Austenland
6. Charlotte Bronte, author of Jane Eyre
I don’t know if I’ll like Bronte or not, but I feel I ought to at least try. After all, her biggest fan, aka Charlene, gave Star Trek a chance. 🙂
7. Susan Dennard, author of Something Strange and Deadly
I love her writing advice and get her weekly emails, so I feel like I should probably read at least one of her books (but hopefully more!).
8. Neil Gaiman, author of Stardust
He’s so prolific, so I feel ought to read something of his for sure!
9. Victoria Schawb, author of A Darker Shade of Magic
10. Elizabeth Gaskell, author of North and South
I’ve heard some talk about North and South and after reading the synopsis I became interested in checking it out one day. Might be a hit, might be a miss, but I’ll never know unless I try!
Which authors do you feel you need to read?
