Ten Authors 2

This week on Top Ten Tuesday, we’ve been asked to list a very specific group of talents: authors we’ve read, loved, but have not read more than one book from! It was disturbingly easy for me to put this list together – there are a lot of books I still need to read!

1 & 2 Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

A two-for-one! As the authors of the glorious These Broken Stars, they absolutely wowed me. I mean, WOW. I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the trilogy… but, in the meantime, there are their individual novels!

3 Douglas Adams

As  proud towel-carrying fan of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, you’d think I’d have read all the books in the series. Well… not as such. *ahem* Now that I own the omnibus, I guess I should get to work on that…

4 Livia Blackburn

Debut 2014 author, Livia Blackburn, is on my to-watch list. I loved her prequel novella Poison Dance (reviewed on goodreads) and really want to get to her actual book!

5 Sarah Dessen

A classic YA author, if there ever was one. Eeeeeverybody loves her. I’ve only read her book Last Chance, but I own quite a few!

Ten Authors6 George R. R. Martin

Oh, George. I loved Game of Thrones, but I had a lot of trouble getting into A Clash of Kings. He is certainly an author I need to revisit, but I don’t know when I’ll have the strength to sit through his deathly sagas!

7 Jennifer L. Armentrout

This is another one of those authors that everybody loves but I? I am late to the party! I read her White Hot Kiss (much more UF than romance, despite the title/cover) and loved it. I even got to meet her at BEA this year! But alas, I am still behind on her books. Sigh.

8 Alan Brennert

I adored Alan’s Moloka’i. I laughed, cried – the whole nine yards. I wrote a glowing review for it and then immediately went out to get his other set-in-Hawaii novel Honolulu… and never got to it.

9 Julianna Baggott

Baggott’s novel Pure made my Top Ten list of 2011 and yet… I haven’t read the sequel! *shame face*

10 Anne Osterlund

OMG ANNE OSTERLUND. Her novel Academy 7 is one of those so-under-rated-it-should-be-criminal books that I highly recommend. Go out and get a copy, already. Why haven’t I read more of her books? I DON’T KNOW. *panics*
