And I Will Always Loooooove You!

Top Ten Favourite Authors of All Time


An easy one today, I wrote the list by standing in front of my bookshelves and seeing whose name jumped out at me. Authors are in no real order, except that Terry Pratchett will always be at the top. I’ve listed the books that have made each author my favourite. On a side note, I have noticed how only three out of the ten are women and I intend to remedy that in the future. Prompt from the Broke and the Bookish.

1. Terry Pratchett

The Discworld series and The Bromeliad Trilogy

2. Jeff Vandermeer

The Ambergris trilogy (particularly City of Saints and Madmen), Veniss Underground and the Southern Reach trilogy
