Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish to highlight a top ten list related to book blogging, and to get to know fellow book bloggers.
Guys, this is not a lazy post. I tried to write something about each author, but every description pretty much turned out the same: I will read anything these authors put out because they are all so awesome, and I’m pretty much their publicity mouthpiece at this point. All of them are veteran authors, all of them have awesome, distinct writing styles and genres, and I hope you like them as much as I do. I’ve taken the liberty of giving you the genre, listing a few of my favourite books, and upcoming releases by each author, but that’s all I’ll say. Enjoy. Tell me what you think.
