Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week is a new topic and it’s always a little bit exciting to head over there and check out the next week’s topic (or when I’m really lazy I check it Tuesday morning). This week’s topic is the:
Top 10 Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
I always need to read more books. Generally speaking if I read a book I like and it’s the first I’ve read by that author, I buy another one. It almost always takes me forever to get to that second book, but I buy it. Although there are those authors that I buy a bunch of their books at once without ever having read anything by them (i.e. John Green – definitely bought 3 or 4 of his books before reading one).
So check out my TBC (To Be Continued) Author list below and who knows, maybe you’ll discover an author that you think is worth trying out!
1. Hanna Peach (Angelfire) – I actually have books 2 and 3 on my nook and ready to go. Plus, book 1 kind of ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I need to get my butt in gear and get reading.
2. Mark Lein (An Emerging Threat) – The first one surprised me with how awesome it was and I have the second one. I’m not sure if this one really counts because I was planning to read book 2 within the next few weeks.
3. John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) – I own multiple John Green books and liked the first one that I read. I also really liked the movie. I don’t know why I haven’t picked up another one of his books yet. I’d say it’s because I’m busy, but I think it might be laziness.
4. Sarah Dessen (The Truth About Forever) – I really liked my first Sarah Dessen book and just haven’t found the time to read another one. I don’t own any others, but I did pick one up from the library (then returned it without reading it). I don’t know what my problem is. Side note: This was actually one of my very first reviews.
5. David Ramirez (The Forever Watch) – This is a special case. I desperately want to read more by this author, but The Forever Watch is currently his only book. So I really need him to write another book as soon as humanly possible.
6. Ashley C. Harris (Shock Me) – The second book in this series actually comes out at the end of this month. So this isn’t a case of me slacking, I just added it so that I don’t forget to get book 2 and read it.
7. Dawn Brazil (Finding Me) – This series is about superheroes and is yet another one that I mostly put on this list as a reminder for myself. Sometimes I make lists of the books I’m reading, want to read and other categories; then I promptly lose or forget about the list. I can’t lose or forget about my blog though.
8. James Patterson (Witch & Wizard) – I know this is probably shocking that I’ve only read 1 book by one of the biggest authors today, but I just wasn’t that into what he had to offer for the longest time. And the book I read is actually part of a series, so I should probably go about finishing that (especially since I already own book 2).
9. Terri Reid (Loose Ends) – When I originally looked at this series, I bought books 1-4 and then only read book 1. I was a great read and fairly quick, if memory serves me right. I may need to go back and re-read book 1, instead of depending on a memory from 2+ years ago.
10. Dan Wells (Partials) – I really liked Partials and I had the second book all ready to go. Then I just lost interest and I’m still not sure why. I’m thinking I may have overloaded myself on young adult, specifically dystopian fiction because there was nothing wrong with the writing and subject matter. In fact, this series is normally right up my alley.
I need to get reading on a lot of these books, because I just realized they would be perfect reads for my September is for Sequels reading challenge. Note to self: Stop procrastinating and get your read on!
