Teaser Tuesday & Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Authors
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Page 47: "To be a European Christian (the rest of the world be forgiven for thinking) was to build ships and sail them to any and all coasts not already a-bristle with cannons, make landfall at river's mouth, kiss dirt, plant a cross on a flag, scare the hell out of any indigenes with a musketry demo and--having come so far, and suffered and risked so much--unpack a shallow basin and scoop up some muck from the river bottom." Neal Stephenson, Quicksilver
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. They created the meme because they love lists. Who doesn’t love lists? They wanted to share these list with fellow booklovers and ask that we share in return to connect with our fellow book lovers. To learn more about participating in the challenge, stop by their page dedicated to it and dive in!
This week’s topic: Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Authors
I love so many authors that it’s literally impossible for me to choose ten definitively, so I just kind of tossed some authors I love into a randomizer, and this is what I got. These are not in any order, and these barely even touch the tip of the iceberg of my favorite authors. So, I’ll just add a couple of my (current since this always subject to change) favorite books by them. Not all speculative, but many of these stories could fall into the realm of magical realism as well (such as Marquez’s Of Love and Other Demons). Click on the covers to be taken to their Goodreads pages.
