This was a very difficult list to create… first, I began gathering the names of all my favorite authors. After re-checking my bookcases and bookshelf blog, I found that I had well over 100 names! Now, this might not sound like a lot to some of you, but I was astounded that I had that many favorite authors – those whom I refuse to part with their books!
I began paring down… whew, that was rough! What I really wanted to do was to name them all — but that seemed to defeat the purpose of listing the TOP chosen few.
I tried — I really did — but I finally had to list my favorite authors by genre — and I still didn’t get everyone on the list that I hoped to!
So… without further adieu
Here’s my personal list of the TOP
TEN 15 AMISH AUTHORS for 2014:
Jennifer Beckstrand Amy Clipston Vannetta Chapman Ruth Reid
Emma Miller Barbara Cameron Suzanne Woods Fisher BJ Hoff
Mary Ellis Cindy Woodsmall Laura V. Hilton Wanda Brunstetter
Charlotte Hubbard (also as Naomi King) Beth Wiseman Jerry Eicher
… and I have to mention two new Amish authors who are wonderful:
Elizabeth Byler Younts Rachel L. Miller
Please check back tomorrow… for my list of favorite historical authors!
God bless you!
