Top Ten Of Your Auto-buy Authors

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. Another one I haven’t been keeping up with, but this week’s is an easy one for me; I have a lot of Auto-buys! I do want to expand it as new books and books with that author involved/the subject, as with a couple of them being in the great library in the sky can’t exactly bring out a new novel! And of course, GRRM:

  1. Agatha Christie
  2. Meg Cabot
  3. Rick Riordan
  4. Nick Hornby
  5. GRRM
  6. Truman Capote
  7. JRR Tolkien
  8. Matthew Reilly
  9. Ann Brashares
  10. Lucy Knisley (she’s amazing!)
  11. Sue Grafton
  12. Gregory Maguire
  13. Lauren Conrad
  14. Waris Dirie

A range of crime/mystery, fantasy and chick-lit, which is pretty much me in a nutshell!!

What are your auto buys? I’m sure I’m missing about ten million I’ve forgotten!

Top Ten All Time Favourites (of the last couple of years)

I am choosing to do this list on books that I have read (for the first time) in the last 3-5 years, not necessarily books that have only come out in that period. Meaning that if I wanted to, I could include Madame Bovary as I read that only a couple of years ago.

Top Ten Books That Should Be Movies

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme brought to  you by The Broke and the Bookish, which I endeavour to participate in regularly!

In my last week of summer holidays before going to work at a new school, i have been catching up on books, TV shows and movies that I have missed throughout the year. A lot of these movies in particular have been very much not worth the wait, or adaptations of much loved books that have not had that same level of love translated into their big screen outings. So for this week’s top ten, I thought I’d go with books that should be adapted (but only if they are done so exquisitely).
