Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten All-Time Favorite Authors. I had a really hard time narrowing it down, and changed my mind about half a dozen times, but finally decided to focus on living writers whose works I continue to read (and hope to keep reading for a long time to come).
Here we go:
1. Diana Gabaldon (like there was any doubt about this one!)
2. Mary Doria Russell
3. Stephen King
4. Patricia Briggs
5. Jim Butcher
6. Susanna Kearsley
7. Christopher Moore
8. Neil Gaiman
9. Bill Willingham
10. J. K. Rowling
I hate having to stop at just 10. This is just scratching the surface — and doesn’t even include some of the late greats, such as Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, and J. R. R. Tolkien. Ah well, I suppose that’s a list for another day!
Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s lists this week.
Share your links, and I’ll come check out your top 10!
