I don't see why not. Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code would certainly never make a top 10 of mine, except maybe the Top 10 Books I'd Rather Eat Than Read Again.
I enjoyed the Harry Potter books, but I don't think they'd make my top 10.
Robin Hobb is the only really glaring omission, to me. You could argue that many of the others belong in different categories (SF, Urban Fantasy, Horror, whatever).
, good luck getting all of those into your Top 10.
