This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, brought to you as always by the lovely ladies of The Broke and the Bookish, challenges us to admit to ten authors we’ve only read one book from…despite desperately
wanting needing to read more.
Here are mine:
The Author: Kristin Cashore — The One Book: Graceling…twice.
Yep. I’ve read and reread Graceling, but have yet to pick up either Fire or Bitterblue despite owning them both. I know.
The Author: Jennifer Crusie — The One Book: Maybe This Time
I’ve bought Bet Me…I just need to read it already!
The Author: Robin McKinley — The One Book: The Blue Sword
I own both Beauty and Sunshine. Don’t worry, the later is going on my fall TBR. I mean it this year.
The Author: Clare B. Dunkle — The One Book: The Hollow Kingdom
I loved The Hollow Kingdom so, but it worked so well as a stand alone that I have yet to read the rest of this series (despite very much intending to).
The Author: Macus Sedgwick — The One book: Midwinterblood
I’ve become a fan of the creep over the past few years, and yet I haven’t dug into his backlog. His recent works seem less on the horrific side, but I do have She Is Not Invisible so I should get on that.
The Author: Jessica Day George — The One Book: Tuesdays at the Castle
I’ve been adding Jessica Day George’s books–both teen and middle grade–to my tbr for what feels like years, but it wasn’t until last week that I finally picked one up. I fell utterly in love with Tuesdays at the Castle and now want to devour all the rest.
The Author: Claire Legrand — The One Book: The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls
In my defense on this one, Claire’s only published two books so far with a third, Winterspell, on the horizon. I love her strangely dark and charming take on things and cannot wait to see how she takes on The Nutcracker.
The Author: Meg Rosoff — The One Book: There Is No Dog
I really particularly need to read How I Live Now, but I feel like I’m waiting for dystopians to just go away for a while so that I’m not biased against.
The Author: M.R. Carey — The One Book: The Girl With All the Gifts
One of my favorite reads this year, Mike Carey is a huge name in graphic novels with titles like Lucifer and The Unwritten under his belt. I’d like to read some, but I’d really love for him to write more prose as well.
The Author: Kate Milford — The One Book: The Boneshaker
I’ve been to her events, I’ve supported her Kickstarter, I own nearly all the books…and yet, here we are. Hoping to pick up her new Greenglass House very soon.
