Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! Revisiting an old TTT post...


Today's topic: pick a past TTT topic you’ve done and re-do/update it 

I decided to go all the way back to July 12th, 2011 and the FIRST Top Ten Tuesday post I did. It was hosted by Jen at The Broke and The Bookish then and the topic was Authors You'd Die to Meet which I changed to Top Ten Favorite Authors. You can see my original post/list here: http://christianbookshelfreviews.blogspot.com/2011/07/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-authors.html

It's crazy how in 9 years (!) so much can change and yet in other ways things are the same. There are a couple authors I wouldn't consider favorites anymore and others that moved higher up the list.

Here is my new, updated list (not completely in order) of my Top Ten Favorite Authors:

1. Steven James | Author of my favorite series ever (The Patrick Bowers Files) and his other fiction books are amazing as well. I've read them all and whenever he has a new book coming out, it immediately goes on my must-read list.


2. Becky Wade | I credit her books as part of the reason that I grew to love contemporary romance. She writes such great stories and I always anticipate her new releases! 

3. Dani Pettrey | I remember well reading Submerged (Pettrey's debut) and it was even the first book discussion I ever hosted here (link). The characters were exactly what you hope for in a story and the suspense had me guessing until the end. That book started my love of her books and now I'm a true fan. :)
 
4. Denise Hunter | Denise Hunter's stories are some of my favorite contemporaries. Her recent release is already a favorite of 2020.


5. Susan May Warren | Honestly, I can't believe I didn't have her on my list in 2011...maybe because I had only read her PJ Sugar and Team Hope series then (pre-blog). Since then I've read 30 or so more of her books and they've pretty much all been amazing. :D

6. Laura Frantz | I hadn't even read a Laura Frantz book when I first did this topic...it wasn't until two weeks later or so that I finished The Colonel's Lady and that book is still a favorite today. Then the next year, I read Love's Reckoning, which took me through SO many emotions and also went on my favorites' shelf. Suffice it to say, I love Frantz's books and I've read all of them except The Frontiersman's Daughter.

7. Stacy Henrie | I've read most of Henrie's books and loved nearly all of them. She writes such amazing historical romances with characters that make you feel like they are real. I can't wait to read the few books I haven't yet.


8. Roseanna M. White | White has written some of my favorite historical series. Her Culper Ring series was the first one I read and so unbelievably good.


9. Karen Witemeyer | Witemeyer's books are always such fun historicals! I still have two older stories to read (Head in the Clouds and To Win Her Heart) and her most recent release; but, I've thoroughly enjoyed all the ones that I have read.

10. Colleen Coble | Coble is still one of my favorite suspense authors. Her latest release ended with such a cliffhanger that I am needing the next book now. LOL

What are some of YOUR favorite authors??
