Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Here are my favorite authors, in no particular order.

1. Margaret Atwood-  By far my #1.  This woman is a genius and she keeps churning out amazing books one after another.  She writes close to a book a year.

2. Michelle Moran- She has only written 3 books (her 4th is out early next year), but they are all very well written.  She writes historical fiction, mostly focused on ancient Egypt.  She is very sweet and realizes the importance of book bloggers in the publishing community.

3. Joshilyn Jackson
4. Tracy Chevalier
5. David Sedaris
6. J.K Rowling
7. Libba Bray
8. Philippa Gregory
9. Christopher Moore
10. Harper Lee


  1. YESSSS for Margaret Atwood! I absolutely adore her.

  2. Great list! Philippa Gregory might have gone on my honorable mentions list....I love to hate her.

  3. love Michelle Moran too!! I have only read Nefertiti but it was SO well written..:)

  4. I really like both Margaret Atwood and Tracy Chevalier!

  5. I haven't heard of most of these. I've read books by J.K. Rowling and Libba Bray, and I've heard of Philippa Gregory.

  6. Austen is my number one also! I bet we're not alone. I also have Libba Bray on my list. I would have put Harper Lee on the list but I've only read one book (oh yeah, she only wrote one book).

  7. Saw your name in the linky from Lori's Reading Corner Show Me The Money.

    Just wanted to stop by and say hello.
