Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a prompt and other lovers of listmaking join in with their own top ten list.
This weeks theme is: Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But Want To Read More.
I didn’t think I would manage ten when I started compiling this list, as once I find an author I really like I will generally try to seek out as much of their work as I can get my hands on, so I was quite pleased to manage the following seven:
Laini Taylor – I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I’m pretty sure I bought the second book in the series too, so I have no idea why I haven’t read it yet, but I know I haven’t. I think I may re-read the first book then carry on, as it seems such a long time since I read it.
Veronica Roth – I read Divergent and quite enjoyed it. I know I intended to read the rest in the series, and I think the only reason I didn’t was that I requested the second book from the library before it came out and for some reason they never actually purchased the book and my request was cancelled. After that I started to read rather mixed reviews about the next books and I just never seemed to find time to revisit the series.
David Mitchell – I read Cloud Atlas, but that’s all I’ve read so far from this author. I have The Bone Clocks ready to read next though, so it’s high on my TBR pile.
Markus Zusak – The Book Thief was so wonderful that I have to keep telling myself that rather than rereading that book, I should discover other works by this author.
Rainbow Rowell – Slightly bending the rules for this one, as I’ve actually read Landline and Fangirl, but I fell so hard for Fangirl that I really, really, absolutely must check out Attachments and Eleanor and Park.
Margaret Atwood – I loved Stone Mattress, which is high praise from a reader who doesn’t normally favour short stories, so I definitely want to read more of Atwood’s work, possibly beginning with the MadAddam trilogy.
James Treadwell – I read a wonderful book by this author called Advent. I believe there’s a second book, and eventually there will be a trilogy, so he definitely makes the list.
