This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, brought to us as always by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish, is the Top Ten Authors We’ve Only Read One Book By .. But We Need To Read More!!! I have 5 adult authors, 5 YA authors, and 2 authors I’m just not sure about. Without further chittle chattle, here we go — !
Hester Browne gets a lot of comparisons to Sophie Kinsella, which is what drew me to her in the first place. I read Swept Off Her Feet and enjoyed it … but what can I say? It didn’t sweep me off my feet. (You see what I did there?) I own a few of her others, and I really want to give them a try!
I can honestly not tell you why I haven’t picked up another book from Jojo Moyes. I devoured The Last Letter from Your Lover, and I recommend it a lot, so I really need to get to moving her other books up on my TBR pile!
I finally picked up Lauren Willig’s Secret History of the Pink Carnation series in September!! (&&what a good time to start it, as The Bubble Bath Reader just started their Pink For All Seasons re-read to get ready for the 12th book being published next year. If you want more info – just click here!)
I absolutely LOVED Stardust. (The movie also … if you haven’t seen it you totally should check it out, even if you haven’t read the book!) I own about 6 or 7 of Gaiman’s books, so I really just need to get to reading. (He has such an impressive backlist – does anyone have any recommendations for which book I should start next??)
This one doesn’t really count, because she doesn’t have much of a backlist, and Shadow Scale isn’t being published until 2015. BUT A GIRL CAN DREAM.
Code Name Verity absolutely wrecked me, and that’s the only reason I haven’t read Rose Under Fire yet. (As I understand it, it’s not a direct sequel, but still … if you’ve read Code Name Verity you hopefully understand my hesitation. I mean. That book … wrecked me.) I did love Wein’s writing and storytelling though, so eventually I am going to have to pick up her other books.
I *really* enjoyed both of these authors (the one book I’ve read, anyhow), and while I definitely want to give them another go … I just … I’m not sure! They both have a heck of a backlist, and not all of them are really highly rated. There are some authors that I don’t even care what it’s about, I’m reading it because it’s THEM. (Kate Morton, Tana French, you hear me? I’ll read ANYTHING you write. jsyk.) Other authors I can enjoy, but to read anything else I need to be interested in the story. Have any of you read these authors? Do you have any other titles you’d recommend??
