Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Haven’t Read, But Want To

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.

This week’s theme is:  Authors I Haven’t Read, But Want To

Top Ten Tuesday this week is all about authors I haven’t read yet. I’m adapting this slightly for my final two mentions and including a couple of authors whose first-in-a-series books I’ve read and would like to continue with the rest.
I’ve chosen mostly series or trilogies this week, some of which have been on my TBR list for such a long time. The many standalone books I’d still love to find time for would make up a whole new post in themselves.
On to the books…

Brandon Sanderson – The Mistborn first trilogy (The Final Empire, The Well of Ascension, The Hero of Ages)

Robin Hobb – The Farseer trilogy (Assassin’s Apprentice, Royal Assassin, Assassin’s Quest)

Joe Abercrombie – The First Law trilogy (The Blade Itself, Before They Are Hanged, Last Argument of Kings)

Julia Quinn – The Bridgertons series

Alice Hoffman – The Practical Magic series

Becky Chambers – The Wayfarers series

Mary Robinette Kowal – The Lady Astronaut series

Jodi Taylor – The Chronicles of St. Mary’s series

Genevieve Cogman – The Invisible Library series. I’ve read the first book in this series.

Diana Gabaldon – The Outlander series. I’ve also read the first book in this series, and I’ve kept up with the TV adaptation, but I’d really like to get back to reading the books too.

So, any recommendations about which of these I should definitely try to make time for?

So, what did you write about this week?
See you again next time for another Top Ten Tuesday.

    I love your picks! I’ve always wanted to read a Brandon Sanderson book (I guess I’m just kinda intimidated because there are so many of them lol). I really enjoyed Bridgerton series, hope you do too if you get round to it! Here’s my TTT of the week, it was a quiz on fantasy books, see how many you know! 🙂

    A couple of these I’ve only watched the TV adaptation and not read the books: Outlander and Bridgerton, as I don’t love romance heavy books but quite enjoy romance heavy TV shows, so they work better for me in their adapted formats than their original! Unfortunately the two authors on your list that I’ve read I didn’t have a great time with: I gave up with Robin Hobb’s Assassin’s Apprentice and I didn’t really like The Invisible Library, so I gave up with Genevieve Cogman after that.

    The Bridgerton series is light, fluffy fun — perfect airplane reading! I love the Outlander series so much, so I’d say definitely keep going! Mary Robinette Kowal’s Lady Astronaut books are among my all-time favorites, and I also love her Glamourist Histories series. I really hope to finally read the Becky Chambers series this year — it’s been on my TBR list forever!

      Sounds like I have a lot to look forward to, now I just have to decide which to pick up first 😀
      I loved the first of the Glamourist Histories too, so that’s another series I’d like to carry on with.
      I have one more season of Outlander to watch and then I’m up to date so I’ll probably end up watching that before I get back to the books.
