[Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Authors That I've Never Read]

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup hosted by The Broke And The Bookish!

Of course we all want to read all of the authors, all of the time, but it's just not possible.  I find that there is a large list of really popular authors who's work I haven't read yet, even if some of their books are sitting on my shelves (both physical and electronic).  I like to think that I've read a lot of well known authors, but the fact is, I just read my first John Green novel, so that's not always the case.  Here are ten authors who's books I haven't gotten around to reading yet.

I Want To Make Myself Read These Authors Soon!

  • Fiona Paul/Paula Stokes
  • Morgan Matson
  • Sarah Rees Brennan
  • Kendare Blake
  • Veronica Roth
  • Victoria Schwab
  • Gretchen McNeil
  • Kasie West
  • Gail Carriger
  • Sarah J. Maas

Well there's my list!  What's on yours?  I wanna know.  Leave your link below or tell me in the comments!

I've only read a couple of these myself. I read Morgan Matson's first book and really loved it and the second was good too. I have read Roth but, although I definitely recommend Divergent, the rest of the series goes really down hill and kind of ruins it ;) I want to read a lot of these myself - Schwab and West made my list too.

Great list Christianna! I've only read a few of these myself so far and that's Fiona Paul (I love her Secrets of the Eternal Rose trilogy), Sarah Rees Brennan (but only as a co-writer) and Kasie West (started and finished my first Kasie West book last night and it was exactly what I needed!

I really want to read Kendare Blake, Veronica Roth, Victoria Schwab and Sarah J. Mass also! You can see my list here: http://the-bookbee.blogspot.com.au/

Great list! I haven't read a few of these authors either, like Carriger, Maas or West. I hope to read Kasie West's latest book this spring though. I LOVE Matson. I hope you get to read her sometime.

I've been meaning to read Victoria Schwab's work since I saw her speak at New York Comic Con once, but I just haven't gotten my hands on one of her books yet. I really need to get around to that.

I've only read Veronica Roth and Victoria Schwab from this list. Sarah Maas is one that I'm dying to read. I just recently bought her book, Throne of Glass, so hopefully she'll be an author I'm more familiar with soon. I definitely wouldn't mind checking out Kendare Blake's books too. Great list, thanks for sharing and opening my mind to new authors.

EEK dude you so have to read Kendare Blake! I love her books and we seem to like the same books when it comes to that genre. Schwab too I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy Vicious. I haven't read her Archived series though but i want to. Kasie West I have read Pivot Point but none of her highly praised contemporaries.

I love Kendare Blake! She's on my auto-buy list for sure.

Despite having 3 or 4 of her books, I've never read anything by Kasie West either - but I really want to!

You have to read Kasie West, totally my favorite. Thanks for stopping by my post :)

Sarah J. Maas is on my list as well. You are definitely missing out with Kasie West and Gail Carriger! Make time for them as soon as possible - you won't regret it!

Sarah J Maas is on my list but I have been considering Roth's Divergent and didn't Kendare Blake do Anna Dressed In Blood? I wanted to read that too.

Charlotte said...

I follow John Green's tumblr, on Instagram, and his Crash Course series on youtube... but I have yet to read one of his novels. Silly me!

Neil Gaiman would be one of my choices... well, I read one of his books, but I don't have plans on reading more.
