Topic Tuesday - May 27, 2014

Top Ten Tuesday is a series sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish. This week there is no topic; I get to pick whatever I want! I've decided that this week, I'll list the Top 10 authors that I will read no matter what. (Listed in no particular order). 

1. Janet Evanovich.. The Stephanie Plum series is getting semi-predictable, but I really love the characters and the humor. Her previously written romance novels aren't something I've read a lot of (not generally my genre), but I will pretty much read whatever she writes.

2. Jen Lancaster. So, I feel like her writing has been uninspired lately (the two novels are generally the same, The Tao of Martha was boring and I haven't been in love with some of her books), but I've loved her first books (Bitter is the New Black, Such a Pretty Fat), that I will read anything she writes.

3. Anne Lamott. I love.her.so.much. She's so real, honest and inspired. Her novels are good, but I especially love her non fiction. I wish she would write a book about food/body/self esteem.

4. Wally Lamb. I have loved every novel he's ever written - and I would love to read them all again.

5. Sue Monk Kidd. I first read The Dance of the Dissident Daughter in college, and tore up that book with notes and underlining. Her novels have continued to be amazing.

6. Cathy Lamb. Every book has been funny, witty, emotional, with an entertaining love story and strong female protagonists.

7. John Green. Really. Does this need explanation? I wish I could read The Fault in Our Stars for the first time again.

8. Rainbow Rowell. This author is a new find for me, but I can't tell you how much I loved FanGirl. I've read all of her other books since.

9. Geneen Roth. Her last few books have been a little....new-agey...for me, but her original books have been groundbreaking for me, and I will definitely read anything she writes.

10. Stephanie Perkins. She's "only" published two books, but Anna and the French Kiss impressed be so much, that I will continue to read what she writes! (As you know, I'm eagerly anticipating Isla and the Happily Ever After).

What are some of your favorite authors? I'm always on the look out for new favorites!


  1. John Green and Stephanie Perkins for sure! I'd say I'd definitely read Rainbow Rowell too. I didn't love E&P but I LOVED Fangirl and I will read Attachments soon :) Great list!

  2. I loved Fangirl SO MUCH! Attachments was good, and I'm eagerly awaiting Landlines :D
