Top Ten Tuesday – Authors With a Fun Social Media Presence

ttt social media presence

Hi everyone! Today, I want to try something new. I’ve done book tags before, but I’ve never done a Top Ten Tuesday. For those of you who don’t know, Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish waaaay back in 2010, and then moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. Basically, every Tuesday is assigned a topic, and book bloggers get to create their own top ten list around that topic. Sounds fun, right? This week’s prompt is “Authors Who Have a Fun Social Media Presence”, so let’s do this!

Sabaa Tahir

You should all go follow Sabaa! Not only does she share hilarious anecdotes that happened to her, she also loves to tease us with the body count in her upcoming books.

Jay Kristoff

If you’ve read any of Jay’s books, you probably have a good idea of what you might expect from his social media presence. Sarcasm, NSFW words, and an overall metal AF vibe.

Victoria/V.E. Schwab

I love Victoria’s openness about her struggles with writing (and other stuff). If you think the life of a writer is always glamorous and fun, you might want to read her tweets.

Elizabeth May

If you love cute kitties, sarcasm and creative insults about politicians, you have to check out Elizabeth’s Twitter feed! Especially the adventures of Bramble, a kitten that nobody else wanted to adopt because she was semi-feral, always bring a smile to my face.

Melinda Salisbury

What can I say? I just relate to Melinda’s tweets so much. Also, she often posts pictures and recipes of mouth-watering (vegan!) food!

Emily A. Duncan

I’ve talked a lot about how I want to read Wicked Saints. The story sounds great, and the fact that the author is a metalhead like me just adds to my excitement. Futhermore, she works as a librarian, and apparently that job can be… wild…

Kiersten White

Even wonder how writing a book happens? Kiersten provides a great look into the unexpected problems she encounters along the way. Oh, and occasionally, she brings out her Nicolas Cage sequin pillow!

Sam Sykes

Looking for someone who has mastered the shitpost, but also tweets about his puppy’s adventures, life as a writer, and politics? Sam Sykes is your man!

Margaret Owen

I loved The Merciful Crow, and following its author definitely added some fun to my Twitter feed. Glimpses into her upcoming books, and other hijinks!

Samantha Shannon

Samantha has dialed back her social media presence lately, due to workload (which means books to look forward to!). But she still posts interesting linguistic facts, which I also enjoy reading.

And that’s it for this Top Ten Tuesday! Which authors do you think have a fun social media presence? Let me know in the comments below!
