Top Ten Books/Authors I'm Thankful For


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is the Top Ten Books/Authors I'm Thanksful For. Yay, let's do this!


1. John Green. I'm thankful for John Green for many reasons. He makes me laugh, he makes me cry, he makes me tingle inside. He's awesome, and I will always look forward to his latest, greatest book.

2. Sarah Dessen. I'm thankful for Sarah Dessen because no one writes a contemporary novel like she does. Swooning from here to the moon.

3. Laini Taylor. I'm thankful for Laini Taylor and her amazing, beautiful stories. She's definitely one of my all-time favorite authors.

4. Jennifer Echols. I'm thankful for Jennifer Echols for many reasons, but one being that GOING TOO FAR was the first contemporary YA book I read and loved. I use to think I was simply a paranormal girl. She proved me wrong.

5. Maggie Stiefvater. Do I really need to tell you why I'm thankful for her? From her stunning writings to her hilarious and good nature, she's simply awesome.

6. Wicked Lovely. I have met some really awesome people because of this book. Thanks to the Rath & Ruins forum, I've been blessed with many lifelong friends. A fellow Rather (pronounced Rath-er) even suggested I start my own blog. So, thank you Wicked Lovely for a) being awesome and b) sending friends my way.

7. The Harry Potter series. I'm thankful for Ron, Hermione, Harry and the whole gang. Will anything be as epic as HP? Probably not.

8. The Jessica Darling Series. I'm thankful for Jessica Darling and having the opportunity to "grow up" with her. In high school, no one got me like Jessica did. I'm so grateful that Megan was able to continue her series and write a fifth and final book. Was afraid she wouldn't be able to.

9. Divergent. I'm thankful for Four/Tobias/the hot Dauntless guy. I purr just thinking about him...in a very non-weird/crazy way.

10. Far From You. I'm thankful for this:

“What I believe
is that life
is music and fabulous foliage,
but it's also cancer and wars.

That's just how it is.

Maybe God could do better.

But shit, so could we. ”


Because that is the best description of life I've ever read.



And that's all, folks! What books/authors are you guys thankful for?
