Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favourite Authors

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish.

This weeks topic is:

All time favourite authors...

How unfair is this weeks topic. And how can I suddenly declare my all time favourite authors when it's likely to change so much as the years go on! This topic actually made me realise that I really don't have that many auto-buy authors. I have authors who I have loved and appreciated, but sometimes based only on one book, I feel like I can't really declare someone an all time favourite author if I haven't read more than one book of theirs. What if its a fluke? Or the only book of theirs that I end up liking?

J. K. Rowling, Sarah J. Maas, Colleen Hoover, David Clement-Davies & Suzanne Collins

There was never going to be anyone but JK topping my list. The woman wrote Harry Potter and that basically means that she is the Queen of all things. I bow down to her awesomeness and will forever be desperate for more HP books.
                Sarah J. Maas is an author who I adore and can't wait to meet next month.... I AM DYING! I want to get all of my beautiful books signed by her and I can't wait. I am desperate for this. Her Throne of Glass series amazes me and the wait between books is starting to feel like it's actually killing me. I recently reviewed A Court of Thorns and Roses by her and it didn't disappoint either.
                Colleen is an author I love for many reasons, not just her writing. Her books have never disappointed me and so I preorder a book as soon as she announces it. I don't care what it's about, I am reading it and I will love it. I also love her because she's absolutely hilarious, seriously, you need her social media posts in your life. She's also one of the nicest and most generous authors and that gets her many bonus points.
                     David Clement-Davies is a very underrated author and I will always love him. I've also realised he's the only male author on my list. I first read The Sight and Fire Bringer by him when I was a child but I still reread those books now, they're beyond amazing.
                    Suzanne Collins is an easy choice because she gave me The Hunger Games... and then nothing else. I know she had the other series aimed at younger readers, but I need more of her YA in my life.

Abigail Haas, Jodi Picoult, Sally Green, Malorie Blackman & Jennifer Niven

Haas is a genius, both Dangerous Boys and Dangerous Girls blew me away. She needs to keep releasing books.... I NEED MORE! Jodi Picoult is an auto-buy author for me, I own every book she's ever written. I have to admit that I've not been a big fan of her last few books, but I will still be reading everything she releases. Sally Green, I only read her books last month but I am already obsessed and in awe of that woman and her talent.

  1. I always hate it when they ask you to name a favorite anything book related, it is so hard LOL!
    I do have some auto buy authors for sure but in the grand scheme of things not as many as you would think and I totally agree, it does change as the years go.

    1. I KNOW! It's so hard to pick favourites when it comes to books.

  2. I've only read Jodi Picoult from this list, but I own some of the other author's books. Great list!

  3. I KNEW SARAH J MAAS WOULD BE ON HERE. hehe. ;-) And yess to Sally Green. She is INCREDIBLE. I love Half Wild and Half Bad so so much I cannot even...aghhhh, NATHAN. And Abigail Haas is just a master at thriller. Her books give me trust issues. I tried Suzanne Collins MG series and I kind of liked it!! I didn't think I would, because I can be notoriously fussy for MG...buuuut, it was so cute and seriously funny. And there's a character who is basically Haymitch in there except he's a rat. How appropriate. ;-) Here's my TTT!

  5. Nice! Rowling is on a lot of lists! Naturally! I didn't put her on mine, but it's kind of an unspoken constant that she's always included in a top ten post! ;)

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  15. Yes, this weeks topic is mean. Lol. But I do have a lot of auto-buy authors. And I'm okay with that. Hoover, Maas and Rowling are of course on there. But now is Niven. I cannot wait to see what she gives us next.
    Happy reading!

    1. They're always mean. Ten is just too small a number.

  16. I was surprised by how few autobuy authors I have too. I like a lot of the authors you mention here but we only intersect on JK Rowling:) Have you read her adult books? I finally read The Cuckoo's Calling this year and had to immediately read The Silkworm. Now I'm itching for another one.

    1. I know, I thought I had way more than it actually turns out I do.

  17. YES to our mutual love for great authors! I'm so JEALOUS you're getting to meet Maas though. SO jealous. Awesome authors never come here - here being Ireland, specifically the north of the Isle! Le sigh. Malorie Blackman almost made my list, but I haven't read anything else other than the Noughts and Crosses series, and I'm still kind-of afraid to, so I left her off... R x

    1. It's hard being in areas that don't have good bookish events. I'm jealous of Americans because there are so many amazing ones over there.

  18. It always makes me incredibly happy when I see Malorie Blackman making this list because I know she would make my own as well! I also would have to have Michael Grant there as well. I don't think I would have Suzanne Collins there though because I wasn't the most crazy HG fan. I thought it was okay xD But you know, sounds like some good authors here!

  19. Yes for Colleen Hoover! Even though I didn't put Jennifer Niven, Sarah J. Maas or Suzanne Collins on my list, they're all favourite authors of mine as well. I wouldn't hesitate when I recommend their books. Lovely list Charnell!

  21. Wow we have a lot of authors in common, JK Rowling, Sarah J Maas, Jodi Picoult and Malorie Blackman are all on my list too. I love Suzanne Collins and Abigail Haas too but it's just so hard to pick only ten favourite authors, I have way more than ten!
