Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week we’re talking about top ten popular authors we have never read! I added “YET” to mine because these are also authors I’ve been seriously meaning to read for a LONG TIME but I just haven’t had time yet! I swear I will get to these soon! So, in honor of that, I’m going to say which book of theirs I want/plan to read first when I get to finally reading these popular authors! (Please don’t yell at me and judge me when you see this list!!!)
1. Colleen Hoover
Yes, I hear your gasps. I own like 3 of her books. I even MET her AND got her to sign my copy of Slammed. I will be reading Slammed sometime soon!
2. Veronica Rossi
I was supposed to binge read the Under the Never Sky series a few weeks ago but school has been crazy. (I talk about the craziness in my Feb recap) so the binge read has been postponed. Hopefully during my break.
3. John Green
Okay, so everyone and their pet monkey talks about The Fault in Our Stars. I never picked it up because of the subject matter because I feel like it’ll make me all depressed and I just couldn’t handle it. I know he has plenty of other books too that are on my to read list. Good news though – TFiOS is on hold for me at the library. So yeah. I’ll read it soon. (I may be like #70 on the list right now though.)
4. Sarah Dessen
I didn’t read much contemporary before blogging actually. And she just has so many books. I have no idea where to start. Who wants to give me a suggestion for my first Dessen read?
5. Cassandra Clare
Yes. I have not read the Mortal Instruments series nor The Infernal Devices series. Fail. I think I’ll binge TID first though — less books in the series so it’s less daunting. Also, Kelly at Belle of the Literati has talked about Will Herondale so much that I know I need to meet him!
6. Rainbow Rowell
I’ve heard nothing but amazing things! I own both Eleanor and Park and Fangirl! It’s a toss up which one I’ll read first. 🙂
7. Rick Riordan
For some reason I was never motivated to pick up the Percy Jackson books. I don’t know why, I just never did. However, after reading Gillian at Writer of Wrongs’ series review of it, I’m absolutely convinced I need to check it out! Bought the whole box set and everything! ($16 from amazon for 5 books?? Such a good deal.)
8. Tamora Pierce
Fantasy was my first love and I haven’t read as much of it as I want to recently so I definitely want to check out Tamora Pierce’s books! I think I’ll start with Alanna — is this a good idea? Suggestions?
9. Marissa Meyer
Well I adore fairytale retellings so I have NO idea why I have not read the Lunar Chronicles yet. Tonya at Lilybloom Books very generously gifted me a copy of Cinder earlier this month so SOON I will check it out!
10. Marie Lu
I feel like I’d really like the Legend series. I even own the entire trilogy in a box set when Amazon had a lightning deal on it. I’ll get to it, I promise!
