Top Ten Tuesday


This is my first Top Ten Tuesday.  :)

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. 


This week's Topic is:  

Top Ten All Time Favorite Authors

It is difficult to choose ten, but My Top Ten Favorite Authors in no particular order are below:

1.  Kate Morton - love all of her books.  My favorite is THE FORGOTTEN GARDEN.  THE FORGOTTEN GARDEN  was pre-blog so no review, but I also liked THE SECRET KEEPER.

2.  William Kent Kruger - ORDINARY GRACE and TAMARACK COUNTY were quite good.

3.  Lucinda Riley - love her books.  My favorite is THE LAVENDER GARDEN.

4.  Renee Rosen - loved both of her books that I read.  DOLLFACE and WHAT THE LADY WANTS.

5.  Pam Jenoff - I met her at the BEA...lovely person.  I have read almost all of her books and she has a new one out.  Can't wait to read it.  Here is one I have reviewed on my blog THE WINTER GUEST.  

6.  Todd Borg - Awesome mystery/thrillers.  I am quoted in his book TAHOE TRAP. Another good book by Mr. Borg is TAHOE CHASE.

7.  Beth Hoffman - You must read her books. LOOKING FOR ME is just as wonderful as SAVING CEECEE HONEYCUTT. SAVING CEECEE HONEYCUTT was pre-blog days so no review, but I think everyone knows the book.

8.  Bette Lee Crosby - All of her books are superb.  Here a few:  THE TWELFTH CHILD and PASSING THROUGH PERFECT.

9.  Karen White - she is awesome.  I am reading her newest book, THE SOUND OF GLASS....very good.  I loved these books:  A LONG TIME GONE, THE TIME BETWEEN.

10.  Barbara Davis - loved her book, THE WISHING TIDE.

  2. I'd have a hard time just choosing ten as well. We have a few in common though. Beth Hoffman is at the top of my list and so is Karen White. I just got Pam Jenoff's new one the other day. It's not due out till August I think so I'll keep it for summer reading. And as bad as this sounds I have never read one of Kate Morton's books. I know - bad me. Lol.

    1. Interesting you and a few others don't know these authors. Must be out of your genre, Jessica.

  5. Pam Jenoff is has been on my TBR since your review of The Winter Guest and I had forgotten all about William Kent Kruger. I haven't read him in probably 10 years but I always enjoyed his books. Lucinda Riley is another author I'm really looking forward to trying. Great list!

    1. Thanks, Katherine.

      I think you will enjoy Pam Jenoff and Lucinda Riley. I hope you get to read something of theirs.

      Glad to hear you have read William Kent Kruger. Isn't he wonderful?

      The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff is the first book I read by her. I was hooked. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Katherine.

  14. Hi there - Good list of authors. Not sure if I could name 10 without thinking more about it. I know one of those would be Sarah Jio. Her book, Blackberry Winter, has been a favorite of mine.

  15. I have read and enjoyed several from your list, especially Renee Rosen's What The Lady Wants. I liked that for portraying Marshall Field so well, as his store was my all time favorite before Macy's took over.
