Top Ten Tuesdays - Top Ten Authors

It is a weekly meme from The Broke and the Bookish

I just give the Top Ten Tuesdays a try - and here are my finals (in no particular order)

  • Elizabeth Edmondson

  • Jane Austen

  • Sarah Waters

  • P.G. Wodehouse

  • James M. Cain

  • Grace Metalious

  • Dorothy Parker

  • Irmgard Keun

  • Erich Kästner

  • Daphne Du Maurier

How about you? (who and where ever you are..)


  1. What a great list! It seems like many people in Germany know all kinds of American authors but here in the US we know very few German authors ... I know we American book bloggers be very interested to see you review your favorite German language authors!

  2. Thank you, IngridLola - maybe I'll give some German authors a break.. :")

  3. Oooh! Wodehouse, Austen, & du Maurier! Great picks! Here's mine: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2010/10/top-ten-tuesday-favorite-authors.html

  4. I don't know all the authors on your list but I agree with Austen and I like DuMaurier and Wodehouse!

  5. James M. Cain is a great addition to your list!

  6. I have only read Austen and DuMaurier. The books that I read I liked.

    I see on your sidebar that you are reading A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Very cool. I was told about this book a few months back, and placed it on my to-read list, and forgot. You have just reminded me. How are you liking the book?

  7. I have an award for you on my blog! http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2010/10/award-time.html

  8. My top ten would have to include: PG Wodehouse, Agatha Christie, Raymond Chandler, Lewis Carrol, Arthur Conan Doyle, PD James, Dan Needles, Edward Gorey, Edgar Allen Poe, and Emily Dickinson :)


Every comment makes me happy - because than I know there is someone out there reading this! ;")

Thank you for commenting! I am reading every comment you'll make - and when I can think of an answer I will post it. ;")
