Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Authors/Books I am Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  

This Thanksgiving week the theme is Ten Books or Authors You are Thankful For.

Since I did a list for my birthday of the 33 best books of my life this past week, all of which I am thankful for, I am going to go with authors for this meme.  I am selecting those authors who I have read the most often because I heart them so hard.

1. Jane Austen.  Obviously.
2. Michelle Moran.  Also obviously.
3. James Patterson.  Don't hate.
4. Edgar Allan Poe
5. F. Scott Fitzgerald
6. Philippa Gregory
7. William Shakespeare
8. Toni Morrison
9. Maya Angelou
10. Barbara Kingsolver

Who would be on your list of authors you are most thankful for?


  1. I don't know if I can come up with ten but my favorites are:

    J R R Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, etc
    Susan Mayse: Awen
    Edith Pargeter: The Brothers of Gwyeneth, The Heaven Tree
    Richard Adams: Watership Down
    Sandra Dallas: Tallgrass, The Diary of Mattie Spencer

    C S Lewis: The Chronicles of Narnia
    Forrest Carter: The Education of Little Tree
    Catharine Marshall
