Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Authors I’d Buy No Matter What

Top Ten Tuesday is the brainchild of The Broke & the Bookish. Every Tuesday, we compile a list of our literary Top 10, and then add it to the blog hop.

This week is all about the Top 10 Authors We’d Buy No Matter What.

1.) Bill Bryson
Witty travel writing? Yes, please!

2.) Kathy Reichs
I’m definitely a fan of Temperance Brennan

3.) J.K. Rowling
Do I even need to explain this one?

4.) Dan Brown
I do love me a good conspiracy, and Robert Langdon.

5.) Mark Gatiss
Whether it’s original work, Doctor Who or something else. I love his humour!

6.) Neil Gaiman
How do I even start to describe how awesome his writing is?

And a few dearly departed authors I’ve collected or I’m still trying to collect:

7.) J.R.R. Tolkien
His books were my introduction to fantasy. Middle-Earth is my home.

8.) Douglas Adams
Is there anyone more British in this universe than Arthur Dent?

9.) Terry Pratchett
I’ve read most of his books at the library, but now I’m slowly buying them

10.) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Someone who is sure that writing Sherlock Holmes was his biggest mistake must have a great body of work to back up that claim.

      1. Mark Gattis I don’t really know. Kathy Reichs has never appealed and Dan Brown was OK in the DaVinci Code and utter crap in the 2 others I read. All the rest are gold

      2. Gatiss made his name as a screen writer, including for Doctor Who and Sherlock, but also League of Gentlemen and many more. He has written companion pieces, but this year I read his Lucifer Box trilogy and it had me in stitches it was so funny.

      3. His protagonist Lucifer Box is a turn-of-the-century spy in his majesty’s secret service, and Lucifer is pretty much a mix of Sherlock Holmes and a bisexual James Bond. Lucifer is the kind of person who’s live at 9 Downing Street because “someone has to.” 😀
