Top Ten Tuesday (16)

Top Ten Authors I Want to
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Robin Benway
Author of Audrey, Wait! and The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June
My prayers have been answered with this one, and Ms. Benway will be publishing two more books! 

2. J.K. Rowling
Author of Harry Potter
Do I need to explain this one? 

3. J.D. Salinger
Author of Catcher in the Rye and Franny and Zooey
Salinger might have actually written more books, but it doesn't seem as if the public will ever see them. I respect that if there are books, though, that his family is keeping them private. 

4. Markus Zusak
Author of The Book Thief and I am the Messenger
This guy is a writing genius, and I can't wait to see what he has in store next! 

5. Laurie Halse Anderson
Author of Speak, Wintergirls, Twisted, Prom, and many other books
Her latest YA book came out in 2009, which isn't too long ago, but I'm still excited to read a new book by her. She's incredible.

6. Wendy Wunder
Author of The Probability of Miracles
Although her debut novel just came out in January, I still want to read more of her writing! Probability was just so good! 

7. Jane Austen
Author of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility and Emma, etc.
There's no such thing as too much Jane Austen.

8. Christopher Paolini
Author of The Inheritance Cycle
Apparently he's working on a sci-fi book, which should be so cool, but I'm really excited for Book V of the Inheritance cycle. Eragon and Saphira's story is over, but there's still so much to learn about Alagaesia.

9. Stephen Chbosky
Author of Perks of Being a Wallflower
Perks is so good (and is being made into a movie with Logan Lerman and Emma Watson!) and another book of Mr. Chbosky's would be great!

10. The Brothers Grimm
Author of The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales
It would be so cool if they were able to write more fairy tales? That would give the writers of Once Upon a Time even more to work with! (:

What authors do you want to see more books from? (Also, do you watch Once Upon a Time?)
