Authors I Haven’t Read but Want To

Hello beautiful people! The family has departed and I’m excited to be back to my normal routine, if there ever was such a thing. But hey, it’s Tuesday! That means it’s Top Ten Tuesday!

It’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic, if you haven’t guessed from the title, is all about authors I haven’t gotten to yet, but want to.

Diana Gabaldon

I have yet to pick up this series, despite owning this book in three formats. And given that all she has really written is the Outlander series, I have to at least give these novels a try.

Naomi Novik

So despite owning three books set in three different worlds by this author, I have yet to read a single one. I need to work on that, I think.

Neal Shusterman

I also own a few books by this author and have read none. Are we noticing a pattern here?

Octavia E. Butler

I can’t believe I have never read any of her work! From what I understand, her writing was incredibly prophetic.

Sarah J. Maas

This is another example of “I own all the things and have never read them”. I have gotten several of her books, on sale because bargains, and just haven’t gotten around to them. I have problems.

N.K. Jemisin

We just picked up The Broken Earth trilogy a few days ago from our used book store (huzzah!) and The Hubs is reading it right now. He’s on book two, so I have high hopes.

Sara Douglass

So I bought this entire series based on the covers, and haven’t read them yet. I mean look at that art! I have no idea what to expect, of course, but that cover!

Fredrick Backman

I’ve heard amazing things about Backman’s writing. And I own Anxious People. I have high hopes based on everything I have heard about him.

Ta-Nehisi Coates

I have heard nothing but good things about this author’s writing. I need to get to it sooner rather than later.

Jennifer L. Armentrout

I own the first book in this particular series but haven’t read anything else by the author either.

And there is my list. What does your list look like?

  1. I have never read any Outlander either (or seen the series) even though I would probably love it. I loved the N K Jemisen series though. I read the Sara Douglass books years ago and enjoyed them at first but then didn’t enjoy the later ones. Hope you manage to read some of these soon.


    • I have friends who swear I will love Outlander, both the books and the show. I haven’t talked to a lot of people who have read the Sara Douglass books, so it’s good to hear something about them!
