Top Ten Tuesday: Author Recommendations

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

If you like these authors, you might like these other books.

If you like the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, you might also like The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

If you like Suzanne Collins, Ender's Game by Orsen Scott Card might also satisfy you're need government defiance and a strong independent lead characters.

If you like Sarah Dessen, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green and My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult might be a nice balance between love and loss.

If you like the middle grade fantasy like Inkheart and The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke, The Sisters' Grimm Fairy Tale Detectives series by Michael Buckley would be a great addition to your reading list.

Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes may be a classic detective, but Hercule Poirot is quite a detective himself.  Agatha Christie's novels are great supplements to Conan Doyle's mysteries.  Try The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, you might just find you enjoy it.

If you like Perks of Being a Wallflower by Steven Chbosky, It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon are great books that also enter the might of the teenage psyche.

If you like J.K. Rowling, you might want to try A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L'Engle or The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo.
