Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite Authors toptentuesday

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! This weekly shared “meme” has a different theme each week and is shared by many blogs. We’re aiming to come up with ten things between us each week so they won’t be in any particular order!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. For a list of past and future Top Ten Tuesday topics and to find out more about Top Ten Tuesday, click here!

This week’s topic is tough – picking favourite authors is like choosing a favourite child! We’ve gone for those whose writing style we love, books we return to over and over.

Top Ten Favourite Authors


1.  J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter series)

Need we say more? 🙂

– Angelya and Leila (and N and P)

2. Terry Pratchett (Discworld Series)

One of my favourite fantasy authors for most of my life. A great satirist and generally hilarious.

– Angelya



3. Isobelle Carmody (Obernewtyn series)

The final book in this series is finally coming out in November! Only eighteen years since Obernewtyn was first published! We’ve been fans for most of that time 🙂

– Angelya & Philippa

4. Ian McEwan (Atonement)

– Natasha



Midnight's Children

5. Salman Rushdie 

[Midnight’s Children] could be my favourite novel of all time – and that’s a big call!

– Natasha

6. Roald Dahl



Daughter of Smoke and Bone

7. Laini Taylor (Daughter of Smoke and Bone)

Beautiful descriptive writing style!

– Angelya

8. Christie Golden (Warcraft novels)



The Handmaid's tale

9. Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale)

– Natasha

10. Jay Kristoff (The Lotus War trilogy)

Beautiful imagery and brilliant characters





Anni lives in Brisbane, Australia with her young family. She loves everything fantasy and science fiction and believes sleep is really very underrated.

    JK Rowling was on my list too, but I bet she’s on a lot of people’s because Harry Potter is just so awesome. Roald Dahl was also on my list.
