Top Ten Tuesday is sponsored by The Broke and The Bookish.
The ten authors that I can’t believe I’ve only read 1 book by are:
- Andrew Smith – I just learned about this author with all the fuss being made over Grasshopper Jungle this year. Now I must read all his books! And get them for my school library.
- Jennifer L. Armentrout – I got a copy of her book, Don’t Look Back, as part of a box of ARCs from Disney last spring, and while it wasn’t the main reason I wanted the set, it turned out to be one of my favorites! I’d been told I needed to read her books, and I’d seen them all over the blogosphere. Now I know.
- Jennifer Brown – She lives in the same town where my dad lives, right next to the city that I live in. I read Hate List for an award nominee for the Missouri Association of School Librarians. I have at least one other of her book sitting at home waiting to be read. I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up yet.
- Laini Taylor – I got a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone the first time I attended BEA in 2012. But it took me a bit to read it, again, crazy me. Then I loved it! I got to meet her when she came to my hometown a year ago I think, and so I have the 2nd book in the series, but I have yet to read it! It is on my Sequel Challenge TBR list though.
- Kiersten White – Another book that was a state library nominee was Paranormalcy, and so I read it to keep up with the students. Enjoyed it quite a bit. Now just need to read on!
- Sophie Jordan – I’m kind of ashamed to admit that Uninvited is the first book of hers that I ever read. I met her in 2013 at the Romantic Times Convention in Kansas City, my hometown. I was very excited to meet her, just from knowing her name from all the books at the bookstore where I work part time. Now that I’ve read one, I’m eager to read on!
- Patricia McCormick – Now I’ve only read one book by this author, Purple Heart, again for the award list, and while it wasn’t my favorite book, I do want to read others she has that sound really good.
- Joe Hill – Yes, he is Stephen King’s son, which is why I picked up his book, Heart Shaped Box. I really enjoyed it, gave it a 5 star rating on Goodreads, but I read it the year before I started this blog, so no review to share. Even though he and I had a bit of a political argument/discussion on Twitter a couple years ago, I still want to read more of his books.
- Alex Flinn – I’m also embarrassed to admit that I assumed this author was a man because of her first name. *hangs head in shame* But I read one of her books, Cloaked, again as an award nominee, and liked it. I also saw the movie for her book Beastly, and thought it was interesting enough I might read more.
- Jennifer Donnelly – I got a copy of her book Revolution for free from the bookstore where I work because she was coming to do a signing. I didn’t get to see her unfortunately, but I loved the book. I had really hoped to get a copy of Deep Blue at BEA this summer, but I wasn’t able to sadly.
Of course there are many others I noticed as I looked through my Goodreads “Read” shelf, but these would be my top 10. Have you read these authors books, do you agree that I should continue? What authors do you need to read more of their books?
