Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Authors in X-Genre

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.

This week’s topic is: Top Ten Authors in X-Genre.

Considering my love of all things YA it’s probably no surprise that my top ten this Tuesday are young adult authors – both contemporary and fantasy.

1. Sarah Dessen

2. David Levithan

3. Melina Marchetta

4. Ally Carter

5. Meg Cabot

6. Jennifer Estep

7. J.K. Rowling

8. Brigid Kemmerer

9. Veronica Roth

10. Richelle Mead 


There are my top ten YA authors. Most of the specialize in fantasy/paranormal books but I love all the authors on this list for many reasons and all of them are MUST buys for me whenever they release a new book.



  1. Fantastic list of authors! I see some of my all-time favorites like Mead, Levithan and Roth. I need to get on board the Marchetta train – I’m missing out!

    • I can definitely recommend anything by Melina Marchetta. She’s one of my favourite Aussie authors and I have adored every novel she’s published. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question
    which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was
    curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!
