Top Ten Tuesday #55 - Freebie Day!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is a topic of your choice so I chose my favorite female authors! And, because it's a freebie this week, I'm throwing the rules out of the window and you get some bonus answers too :) This is a fairly comprehensive list of either my favorite book or the first book I read by them. It's a list female authors who have written books that I've fallen in love with and have become auto-buy authors. I'm sure I've missed some off the list that should be startlingly obvious but I cannot think of who they are!

Top Fifteen Favorite Female Authors

Margaret Atwood | Juliet Marillier | Kate Forsyth

Jo Walton | Frances Hardinge | Freda Warrington

Patricia McKillip | Robin Hobb | Susan Cooper

Ursula Le Guin | Catherynne Valente | Cherie Priest

Elizabeth Bear | Kim Harrison | Marianne de Pierres


  1. I loved The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland - I really need to carry on with that series. I want to start reading some Ursula le Guin at some point. Great list!

  2. I love your topic and answers. Many of these authors are on my TBR list, and this is one reason to get to them sooner. I do agree with the ones I've read, Atwood and Valente, but my list wouldn't even have begun without Rowling!

  3. Great choices! I really want to read The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland. I've heard so many wonderful things about it!

  4. Ohh, that Jo Walton book looks really pretty, I'll totally check that out. :D

  5. I need to read Juliet Marillier!! I hear nothing but great things about her work :)

  9. I actually haven't heard of these authors, but I do love finding writers who are just beautifully talented at what they do.

  10. I checke A face like glass out on Goodreads and it sounds really compelling!
