Top Ten Tuesday (#10): Authors I'm Thankful For

This won't be the first time I've confessed my undying love for a few of my favorite authors. So at the risk of repeating myself to any readers who've actually been around this little corner of the internet for a little while now, I've decided to participate in this week's Top Ten Tuesday sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish. I'm going to keep this one short and sweet :)

Adult Authors
1. J.K. Rowling
2. Diana Gabaldon
3. Kate Morton
4. Sara Gruen
5. Kathryn Stockett

YA Authors
6. J.K. Rowling (yes, J.K. makes both lists)
7. Jenny Downham
8. Lauren Oliver
9. Suzanne Collins
10. Lauren DeStefano

Honorable Mention: Stephenie Meyer -- I wasn't a fan of The Host, but I am a big Twilight fan. I don't care how many people hate on these books, I still like them. A guilty pleasure, if you will.

I am also incredibly grateful to be an educated, literate woman who grew up in a family that placed great importance on reading. I am grateful to have the time and the means to read at leisure and the freedom to read whatever I choose. Not everyone in this world is so lucky. What are you grateful for?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


  1. Interesting list! I've loved the books I've read by Rowling, Stockett, Oliver & Suzanne Collins. I'll have to check out the other authors you mentioned that I haven't yet read books by.
