Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Authors On My Syllabus If I Taught World Building 101


I've seen this meme on a lot of blogs and decided to join in. This meme was created by The Broke and Bookish. Every Tuesday there is a new topic that involves a list of ten books. 

This Week's Topic: Top Ten Books That Would Be On Your Syllabus If You Taught X 101

I'm teaching World Building 101

1) J.K. Rowling


2) Leigh Bardugo



3) Marie Lu




4) Victoria Aveyard



5) Veronica Rossi



6) George R. R. Martin




7) J. R. R. Tolkien




8) Suzanne Collins


9) Christopher Paolini


10) Sarah J. Maas



Which authors would you add to this list?

    1. The only reason I didn't add her is because I haven't read her books yet! I will try though next month or so.

  2. This would be an amazing class! I agree with so many of these (the only reason I don't agree with the others is I haven't read them). What a great list though!

  4. Excellent way to own this Top Ten Tuesday Topic. Adore Gail Carriger. There's some here that have me bookmarking this post. Mine is not so refined however, I came at it with short stories, which I do think is different.

    My TTT which isn't actually a list and shh... I have 11 short stories on my not list today.

  8. Tolkien is the KING of world building, even if I've only ever read The Hobbit, and have tried (5 times) to read LotR and could never get past the Council of Elrond. But he was so good at writing the lore of Middle Earth, I would love to read history books from that world.

    1. Yes, he definitely is. I read The Hobbit but haven't ever attempted reading LOTR but I will someday!

  9. I haven't read boks from all these authors, but I agree with you on the ones I've read books by (1,2,4,5,8,10). I love the Lord of the Rings movies, but I haven't read the books. Great list!
