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’m going to read that soon!” = will read in 6-7 years

Creative genius in progress. My mom will be super upset that I’m posting a pic of a project that hasn’t been ironed. HORRORS. Anyway, I’m halfway done sewing it together, then the fun part is creative stitching on top. pic.twitter.com/lymib8akmc
