Oooh! Today is the fifth and last day on AAW, and given the fact that I was not able to appreciate all the authors I wanted– today is going to be a special mention for all the authors I luv. I apologize because they are going to be short blurbs. =) [In no particular order]
 

J.R.R. Tolkien
Amazing author, and creator of the unique world in which Lord of the Rings develop. One of my favorite books ever– and newp, I cannot pick a favorite out of the three. I read the books a long time ago in Spanish [more than once, each] but still have not been able to read them in English and I still have them here [I borrowed them from a friend *hangs head in shame*] But I am so refreshing my mind soon to the greatness that is Lord of the Rings.
 

J.K. Rowling
OMG! If you know me, then you know how much I love Harry Potter. Amazing writer + awesome story = Great books and I want more! =P I do not need to say more, do I? Just know that I am a maniac when it comes to my lovely Harry Potter *grin.*
 

Carrie Jones
I do not NEED to say anything, right? She CAPTIVATEd me with her first book and not to mention how awesome she is.

Lisa Mantchev
To say that she is making me like Shakespeare now says it all. Yeah, you read it right! Me is more accepting of Shakespeare =P But really– Eyes Like Stars is one of the most unique books I have read, and this lovely lady is great as well.

Kristin Cashore
Graceling was a very different book from the ones I have read, I was pleasantly surprised when I read it and it left me wanting more. Fire was amazing as well! I love her books.

Well, I would love to stay and mention every author I admire, but this is going too long already– and I need to go and prepare for my midterm and write 2 papers!
