Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish
This week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Top Ten Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book. Y'all, this week's topic is right up my alley. Some of these are debut authors, and others have been around for as long as I can remember.
1. Lorraine Zago Rosenthal - Ms. Rosenthal debuted in the YA world in 2011 with Other Words for Love, a fantastic coming of age story set in 1980's New York City. I hope she continues writing YA contemp, because her writing truly shines.
2. Neil Gaiman - The Graveyard Book is the one of the best middle grade books I have ever read. I'm not sure when Mr. Gaiman will publish his next children's book, but I'll be preordering it when he does!
3. J.K. Rowling - I don't know if she can create another series as magical as the Harry Potter series, but damnit I hope she tries.
4. Heather Dixon - Entwined, a retelling of The 12 Dancing Princesses, was a magical story that left me feeling all warm and fuzzy. More retellings, please!
5. Miranda Kenneally - I literally just finished reading Catching Jordan, but oh my gosh I want MORE. I never imagined I'd crave more books with sports themes. Ms. Kenneally is a talented woman. Good thing the companion to Catching Jordan will be released in October of this year. Squee.
6. Laini Taylor - Okay, I know Daughter of Smoke and Bone just came out last year and that the sequel will be released in fall of 2012, but Ms. Taylor's writing is gorgeous. When I think of "lyrical", I think of Laini Taylor.
7. Judy Blume - I love her adult centric novels, especially Summer Sisters. I'm not sure whether she's planning to release more books in the future, but I'll be ecstatic if she does.
8. Kathryn Stockett - The Help was absolutely fantastic, and listening to it on audio really made the story come alive for me. Apparently Ms. Stockett is in the VERY early stages of writing her second book, which is supposed to be set in 1920's Mississippi
9. Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games remains one of my favorite dystopian novels, and I'm curious to see what she'll come up with next.
10. Gayle Forman - If I Stay and Where She Went SLAYED me, and I need more of her gorgeous writing.
Which authors do you want another book from? Let me know :)
