Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.

Try not to strangle me with your thoughts as you read my list! I just read my first J.K. Rowling book last month, so I’m getting better! :)

  1. You’ve never read Sarah Dessen, Rainbow Rowell or John Green? You’ve just named three of my favourite authors and OH MY GOSH GIRL YOU NEED TO RECTIFY THIS. You will fall in love with TFiOS and Fangirl and Paper Towns and Eleanor & Park and The Truth About Forever and This Lullaby and man . . . there is so much awesome for you to read!

  2. I have only read Jane Austen, Sarah Dessen and John Green on your list! I loved The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, Just Listen by Sarah Dessen and the classic Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen! I hope you get to read some of these authors in the near future! Great list :)

    Sarah Dessen- read two of her books, Lock & Key and The Moon & More, both 2 stars. I don’t think her books are for me. There seems to be a theme of dysfunctional parenting and it annoys me.
    Jennifer Echols- read two, Star Crossed & Going To Far, I liked GTF more.
    Rainbow Rowell read two, I liked Eleanor & Park a zillion times more than Fangirl.
    John Green- read Paper Towns & TFIOS. Read TFIOS forget about Paper Towns or you will have the name Margo Roth Spiegelman in your brain forever.
    Cassandra Clare- I’ve listened to the first four Mortal Instruments series on audio. They’re good but Clary & Jace’s immature relationship drives me crazy.
    Richelle Mead- read The Vampire Academy series, so good. I will loan them to you :)Forget the movie and The Bloodlines series, I’m only Fiery Heart and the books are so boring. I only read for Adrian. You’ll meet him in book 2 of VA.

    The rest of the authors I have not had the chance to read either.

  4. I have six out of ten of the authors: Sarah Dessen, Julie Kagawa, John Green, Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, and Richelle Mead.

    Sarah Dessen’s The Truth About Forever was fantastic. When I finish the books I currently have on my to read list, I will probably read more of her works.

    I have read all of Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series, and I absolutely love them. Part of the reason I know never to trust the Fey.

    For John Green I read the The Fault is in Our Stars. I liked it alright, but I have to admit, it is not one of my favorites.

    I have read both the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare, and I simply adore both. Although, I like the setting and characters of the Infernal Devices more. It has a little bit of steampunk to it, which I love, and Tessa, Jem, and Will are wonderful.

    Libba Bray’s The Diviners is set in the roaring twenties in New York, so what is not to love. The next book in that series is in August, and I personally cannot wait for it.

    I recently finished Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, and I enjoyed it. I am currently on the wait list for Frostbite at my library.

  5. I’m seeing a lot of lists that include Libba Bray! She’s one of my favourite authors! If you don’t mind starting a series or two, I highly recommend The Diviners and A Great and Terrible Beauty (part of the Gemma Doyle trilogy, one of my all time favourites!).

    Beauty Queens was also very funny and satirical and I loved it.
