Top Ten All Time Favorite Authors

.
image source: here. edited by me.
We're back again in another Top Ten Tuesday—and this week's topic is to list our All-Time Favorite Authors. This is actually quite easy to do because I have SO many favorite authors—some I've read multiple books from, some I only read one book by them but instantly fell in love. I will start by listing my all-time favorite authors that I've read multiple books from; and at the end there will be some that I've only read one book from, but I already consider them as my favorite authors. Here's the list in no particular order ;)

Mitch Albom
This author got me at his first book, Tuesdays with Morrie. Since that book, I've always waited for the day when Mitch Albom published a new book. I love all his books because the story he tells are always inspiring, and I always enjoyed the way he writes it. He's about to release another book soon, and I will make sure I get a copy when I see it in the bookstores :')

Khaled Hosseini
When asked who my favorite author is, Khaled Hosseini is always the one that's at the top of my head. He's a fantastic storyteller; somehow the story he writes are always so emotional and heart-wrenching. I always love how his story and characters always managed to make me think about life and human beings in general. The stories that Khaled Hosseini writes will always have a special place in my heart ♥

Nicholas Sparks
I literally have read ALL of Nicholas Sparks' fiction books (I also have his only non-fiction book, but I still haven't found the urge to read it). Even though I didn't gave all his books a 5-star rating, I always enjoyed reading his books. For those of you who didn't know, Nicholas Sparks writes romance novels—and I do admit that some of it can be quite mainstream or cliché. But what I love the most is how Nicholas Sparks introduces the main characters—digging their past and personalities—and slowly buildingg their relationship into a romantic one. I adore the chemistry in Nicholas Sparks' books; and a lot of them made me want to experience the same kind of love.

Sophie Kinsella
This author is like my guilty pleasure read. Sophie Kinsella's books are almost always funny, light, and entertaining. I started from her standalone novels and then also read the Shopaholic series. Her newest book, I've Got Your Number, has become one of my favorite reads in 2014. I also love the way she tells her story; and I'm highly anticipating her first young-adult (I think) book which is coming soon in June 2015 !

Rick Riordan
Do I even need to explain why I love this author? I love how witty and funny Rick Riordan is, and he delivers it through the characters in his books. His stories are action-packed, thrilling, and of course very entertaining to read as well. I've read two series by him so far: Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus. I'm really excited for his newest series, which involves Norse mythology and the gods of Asgard.

J.K. Rowling
I haven't read J.K. Rowling's other books, but I have to say that I really really love The Harry Potter series. Everything about this series is magical (literally), and J.K. Rowling did a fantastic job with the world building. I think I might have to schedule reading her other books very soon, because I kind of missed her writing.

Gayle Forman
I fell in love with Gayle Forman's writing since If I Stay. Her writing is so beautiful and poignant. Gayle Forman also managed to play with my emotions through the stories she writes. Even though I didn't gave all her books a 5-star rating, I will still read anything that she writes. I just adore her beautiful writing so much. Hopefully I can read her newest book, I Was Here, soon :))

Markus Zusak
I've only read one book by him, but The Book Thief has probably become one of my favorite books of all-time. He was able to take me inside the story and I was engaged with the characters emotionally. I really want to read more books by him to see what I think about it, but I still haven't bought them yet.
John Green
Another author that I've only read one book from, yet I instantly fell in love. I actually have John Green's other books on my bookshelves—but they're still left unread. I absolutely love his writing in this book, and hopefully I will also enjoy it still in his other books.
George R.R. Martin
The last one on this list, and I've only read just one book by him. George R.R. Martin actually wrote a LOT of books, but I'm currently following the popular A Song of Ice and Fire series. I will have to praise his world building, though—because the world of Westeros is just too epic. The way he thought about each Houses and the history of the world; I think it's just too amazing. That's what made him immediately became my all-time favorite authors. But I'll have to see what I think later after I continued on with the series :))

I might actually have more authors that I can consider as my all-time favorite, but so far these are the ones I could think off the top of my head. I haven't even listed my all-time favorite Indonesian/local authors; maybe I'll make that list some other time in the future :) Who are some of your all-time favorite authors? Feel free to share it in the comments below or share your Top Ten Tuesday link so I can check it out :) Okay, bye now!

  9. We have a couple in common, I had both Rick Riordan and JK Rowling on my list. I might have put Markus Zusak on mine but I decided since I had only read The Book Thief, one book great as it was, was not enough to make him a favourite.

    1. I guess I'll have to read more Markus Zusak books to convince myself that he's indeed my favourite author :D
