Top Ten Tuesday – My Favorite Authors to Follow on Social Media


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Authors Who Have a Fun Social Media Presence.  Following authors on twitter is the best. I love reading their random musings about writing, politics, or whatever happens to be on their minds at any given moment.  I also love to follow them because, at least in the case of my favorites, they also tend to have the best sense of humor. The wit and sarcasm makes my day, and I’m also a sucker for author accounts that post about their pets. Stephen King tweeting about Molly, the thing of evil, for example, always cracks me up. Anyway, below are some of my favorites on twitter. Do we share any faves?

    I don’t really do Twitter, but now I’m considering changing that! How fun! I follow a few authors on Instagram. Emily Giffin is always posting her opinions about the British Royal Family!

    V.E. Schwab seems to be on a lot of lists, must have a fun social media presence. 🙂 I’ve been wanting to read something by Jenn Bennett for a while now too…

    Jenn Bennett is one of the few I follow. She is just all sorts of fabulous. I have seen many of Kristoff’s tweets, and he is hilarious.

    So many awesome authors on this list and some that I’m surprised I haven’t followed yet! Definitely rectified that now. Hehe I love Kristoff, he’s my number one!, and Schwab and C.G. Drews are great too. I think I also shared that tweet by Drews this week 😂 So relatable!

    I love that you actually included a sample tweet. I follow some of these authors too and they are fantastic!! V.E. Schwab, C.G. Drews, and Jay Kristoff in particular are so hilarious. I love the tweet you chose for Jay – that was a favorite of mine.

    I don’t follow too many authors but I especially love following Maggie Stiefvater and VE Schawb. I think they do some good things on writing and also on the book community in general. I love seeing Angie Thomas always preaching truth and I have seen that Marie Lu is quite entertaining and creative with her Twitter as well. While King says some good stuff, I’ve seen him tweeting some questionable things lately that made me lose some respect for him 🙁
