Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Authors I'm Thankful For

'Top Ten Tuesday' is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. I love making lists, so this feature fits me perfectly! If you also take part in this feature or have any additions to my lists, please get in touch; I'd love to hear from you!
Ten Authors I'm Thankful For

On November 26th it's Thanksgiving; a holiday I've never celebrated, because this is something we don't celebrate at all in the Netherlands. I really like the idea of spending a day each year, thinking about what you're really thankful for in life, so perhaps I'll start celebrating it someday, who knows? This week's Top Ten Tuesday is all about being thankful, most specifically focusing on the 10 authors I'm thankful for. Be sure to check out my list below and I'm curious to see which authors made it onto other people's lists!

Be sure to share your own TTT's in the comments section below; I'd love to hear from you! 

1. Jane Austen

Jane Austen has been my favourite author for years and I love loving her work! <3

2. J.K. Rowling

What would the world look like without Harry Potter in it? I don't want to know, unless it means the books still need to released and I could read them all again for the very first time!

3. Lindsey Kelk

Lindsey Kelk is one of the authors that made me fall in love with chick lit and I still thoroughly enjoy all of her novels.

4. Lisa Dickenson

Lisa's novels make me laugh so much, no matter the weather or whatever has happened in my life. Definitely something to be thankful for!

5. Cathy Bramley

Cathy's novels are so heart-warming and just a true joy to read. Whenever I feel down, I just know picking up one of her novels will make me forget about everything for a while.

6. Nicholas Sparks

Probably the best romance author of the past couple of years, I just love the fact he's keeping romance alive with his fabulous novels!

7. Tracie Banister

I recently read my first Tracie Banister novel and it had been such a long time since I read a great chick lit novel. The book came at exactly the right time, when I really needed it, and I'm thankful for that!

8. Rachel Hollis

Rachel Hollis is another author who proved that chick lit is still alive and can be pretty amazing. I love her books and hope she'll continue writing for years to come.

9. Louisa May Alcott

An author whom I've loved for years, ever since I was a little girl and read 'Little Women' for the first time.

10. Robert Thorogood

I just finished Robert Thorogood's upcoming release 'The Killing of Polly Carter' and really enjoyed it. I don't think I've ever read such an entertaining and intriguing detective/mystery novel and he opened the door to a new genre for me, so thanks for that!
