Whoohoo! Best theme ever!!
(These are in no particular order...)
N. D. Wilson
This man. He's kind of brilliant on every level, without fail. I put all his books on automatic 5-star forever favorites and preorder them AT LEAST six months before the release. He never fails to deliver and BLOW MY MIND.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight won my heart forever and I can't imagine a life in which Hadley and Oliver didn't exist. So yeah, this woman will always have my money.
Because Incarceron and Sapphique are in my top 5 favorite books EVER. Because of the meaning in her stories and the way her writing inspires me. I can't begin to tell you how deep my love is.
Duh. Word. ^^^
JACK CAPUTO! The woman capable of creating a man as loveliful as Jack must be put on auto-buy.
Clean, hilarious, totally romantic, well-written and with a great message...how can you go wrong? And did I mention how romantic and hilarious she is?? For reals, guys.
GASP! Just like Brodi creating Jack... Any woman capable of coming up with the idea of REN in her brilliant mind, and also giving us a heroine worth fighting for and believing in is automatically on auto-buy.
Percy Jackson, my lovely hero who I will always cherish forever - he came from the mind of this man. Mr. Riordan...I trust him with my sanity, even if it is ruined.
This woman. I am always ALSO trusting her with my sanity, with my heart, with my life, and she always destroys it. Yet I come back for more. I always will. Because she never fails to deliver, despite the brokenness I feel after reading her books. A brokenness that's somehow satisfying. How does she do it?!
HA! I'd be a prat if I didn't add her and THEN use one of my favorite British terms (implemented by the Weasley twins). And I wouldn't be able to appreciate the full awesomeness of David Tennant using the term "snogging" in The Girl in the Fireplace if I hadn't read these books first. These are just TWO of the 39,205,793,487,203,958,023,528,946,739,408,622,385,792,520,934 reasons why she will always be on my auto-buy list.
And a shout out to the classics!
Rafael Sabatini, Charles Dickens, Charlotte Bronte, and, my personal favorite: Fyodor Dostoevsky.
Because of Andre-Louis, who stole my heart with his pride and skill (Scaramouche). Because Sydney Carton, the drunk who, in the end, took my breath away; and because Dickens made me fall in love with the French Revolution (A Tale of Two Cities). Because of the perfect romance of Jane and Edward (Jane Eyre). And because of Prince Myshkin, whose innocence reflected something so deeply spiritual and God-glorifying and humbled me to the core (The Idiot).
