Top Ten Fantasy Authors
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter)
How could she NOT make this list? She's probably the reason I fell in love with the fantasy genre to begin with.
2. Kristin Cashore (Graceling)
I only read these books over the summer, but I fell in love with them. They're a must read!
3. Libba Bray (Gemma Doyle, The Diviners)
Libba Bray is brilliant and awesome and amazing. Period.
4. Cornelia Funke (Inkheart, The Thief Lord)
Her writing style is so immersing and the Inkheart trilogy is absolutely wonderful.
5. Madeleine L'Engle (A Wrinkle in Time)
Another author who is largely responsible for my love of fantasy. I really need to reread A Wrinkle in Time!
6. Christopher Paolini (Eragon)
While I wouldn't say the Inheritance Cycle is the best fantasy series I've ever read, these books still have a special place in my heart.
7. Michael Scott (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel)
This series is so brilliantly plotted and really just fantastic.
8. Cassandra Clare (for The Infernal Devices)
I'm currently working on TMI, which I like so far, although I *love* The Infernal Devices.
That's all for this week! I like a lot of fantasy authors, but because this is my favorite genre, I'm more picky, and can only think of 8 whom I would consider my absolute favorite authors.
What genre did you pick?
