Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish which I adore and therefore chose to adopt into my weekly blog posts!
When I first started this list it was hard to compile, then after much thought it was hard to condense it down to just ten authors!! I also cheated a little as some authors are still writing but they aren’t writing any new books in the specific series that I want!!
The Brothers Grimm – I adore every one of their stories and my favorite fairy tale of all time is Snow White and Rose Red which was originally written by Charles Perrault and later collected by the Brothers Grimm.
J.K. Rowling – Who doesn’t want more stories from the Harry Potter world? Rumor has it that Rowling is contemplating putting together an encyclopedia of sorts for Harry Potter fans. That would be awesomeee!
Erin Morgenstern – I devoured The Night Circus and I was completely enthralled by her imagery. According to her website she IS writing, though it is unlikely she will ever revisit the world of Celia and Marco.
Patricia C. Wrede – I grew up on The Enchanted Forest Chronicles and LOVED Wrede’s rewrite of Snow White and Rose Red and would love to see either of these ideas expanded!
William Shakespeare – Oh, the love of my life…need I say more?
Juliet Marillier – Okay this one is kind of cheating since she is coming out with a sixth book in The Sevenwaters series but according to her website she doesn’t know if she will continue with the series after this book is published. I totally understand since from the beginning it was a TRILOGY and she now has another trilogy written in the same “world” but just keep going, Juliet..please?
Mercedes Lackey – Cheating again because I know she is still writing and just recently had a book published but I want more like The Black Swan!
Isaac Marion – I loved Warm Bodies and I can’t wait for the movie to come out but according to Isaac’s twitter (yes, I stalk him) he has no intention of revisiting a plot involving R or his world. Sad face.
Melissa Marr – Graveminder was awesome and was definitely written like it could have a sequel!
Brom – I am reading Plucker right now and though it is pretty cool, it doesn’t compare to The Child Thief. I think Brom needs to look more into doing those re-writes and keep those amazing illustrations coming!
