Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books by my Favourite Authors that I Still Haven’t Read.
One of the things that made this week’s topic such a hard one for me is that when I have a favourite author I tend to binge read everything they’ve released; Marissa Meyer, Samantha Shannon, V.E. Schwab, three of my favourite authors and there’s not one book they’ve released that I haven’t read yet. Still I managed to come up with ten, mainly because my TBR list is that long and that unmanageable.
Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
I discovered Jay Kristoff though The Illuminae Files which he wrote with Amie Kaufman, and since then I’ve read and loved both his Nevernight series and LifeL1K3. The Lotus Wars is a series I haven’t heard much about, but give who it’s written by it’s definitely on my TBR list for one day.
Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi
Why haven’t I read this yet?! When I heard Tahereh Mafi was going back to her Shatter Me series and releasing a new books I was so excited because I wanted more from Juliette and Warner and Kenji. I’ve heard good things about Restore Me too so I’m really not sure what’s stopping me from picking it up myself.
The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas
When it comes to The Assassin’s Blade (and Tower of Dawn which also could have made my list this week) I know exactly why I haven’t read it. As much as I love Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series I’m not motivated at all to pick this book up. I will, and soon to, with Kingdom of Ash being released I have no excuse.
Once and For All by Sarah Dessen
I am woefully behind when it comes to Sarah Dessen’s releases (and she’s one of my all-time favourite YA contemporary authors so I need to get up to speed quick). I’m up to What Happened to Goodbye now though, so I only have four more books still to read before I’m up to date.
Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman
As much as Amie Kaufman has yet to release a book I haven’t loved, what’s making me a little hesitant about Ice Wolves is that it’s middle grade (not my usual age range when it comes to books) and not sci-fi (which is what Amie Kaufman has largely written and what I’ve largely loved by her).
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater’s books have always been a little hit or miss for me; I loved The Raven Cycle series but couldn’t get past the first Wolves of Mercy Falls book. Granted I’ve heard good things about The Scorpio Races so it’s still on my TBR list (unlike the rest of The Wolves of Mercy Falls series) but it’s not very high up.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
The majority of people loved Eleanor & Park, but there are a few others out there who have more mixed opinions and it’s made me a little hesitant about starting this one. Granted I’ll get around to it eventually, and knowing some of the negatives I may end up enjoying Eleanor & Park more than I think I will, but at the moment it’s not a priority of mine.
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
I know I need to get through the second half of The Mortal Instruments series before I can start The Dark Artifices trilogy, but I’m just not motivated to pick these books up. I’ve heard mixed things about them so I have a feeling I’ll keep putting them off until I can’t anymore (until the month before Queen of Air and Darkness is released when I want to read Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows).
Cheating Death by April White
The Immortal Descendants is one of my all-time favourite series (and a real hidden gem, not enough people know about these books), and after the cliffhanger book four ended on I was counting down the days until the release of Cheating Death, but then I never picked it up when it was released. Why? Who knows because I don’t have a clue.
Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
My plan for Rick Riordan’s books is to read one of his series per year; this year it was The Kane Chronicles so next year it’s going to be the Magnus Chase trilogy. Then the year after that, when all the books have been released, it will be The Trials of Apollo.
So what do you think? Did you take part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, if so let me know what books by your favourite authors you haven’t got to yet? Would any of the books I featured make your list, or if you have read any of these books do you have recommendations as to which one I should start next.
