Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and now lives at That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week's prompt is based on Thanksgiving which, as a Brit, I do not celebrate but has inspired me to talk about the authors I'm thankful for and whom I always go to if I need a boost. As usual, this list is not in any particular order and feel free to tell me in the comments if any of these writers are on your list, or if not then who is.
1 - Sarra Manning - her books always perk me up, they are funny and heartfelt and swoony.
2 - Keris Stainton - I can rely on Keris to make me laugh and my heart burst with happiness.
3 - JK Rowling - the queen herself, obviously!
4 - Jeaniene Frost - her Night Huntress series is one of my all-time favourite series, featuring one of the best couples in fiction: Cat and Bones.
5 - Holly Bourne - clever, sometimes makes me cry, always makes me think
6 - Lucy Ivison and Tom Ellen - I still giggle to think about the condom incident in Freshers!
7 - Lauren James - who knew time travel could be so romantic?
8 - Sarah J Maas - despite the controversy, I still adore her books, and her characters are always just stunning
9 - Rachel Caine - her Morganville series got me through university. Plus vampires will always be my favourite.
10 - Meg Cabot - one of my teen-years favourites, I credit the Mediator series with my love of paranormal stories.
