Top Ten Tuesday(3): Top Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More


The Broke and the Bookish host a weekly meme of Top Ten Lists.

This week's question is:

Top Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

I read The Time Traveler's Wife and I loved it. It is the book I use to detox from a series I get too obsessed about. I really need to read more of Audrey Niffeneger's books. 

I really liked For Darkness Shows the Stars and bought her second novel in that series, but I have yet to get to it in my tbr list.

She usually writes fantasy but the only book I've read by her is The Adoration of Jenna Fox. I need to get on reading the rest of her novels.

I LOVED Oh The Glory of It All. I really enjoyed it when I was on my memoir kick. I think he's a very astute and funny writer and I should pick up another of his books (whether fiction or non-fiction)

Another great non-fiction author who had a great book, Glass Castle. She wrote another book about her grandmother, Half Broke Horses, which I bought but have yet to get to.

Warm Bodies was hilarious. The movie version of it was hilarious. Everything about this story was hilarious. I need to read more of Isaac Marion's stuff.

Easy was one of the first NA books I read (at least since NA was created its own genre). I really enjoyed it.

Waiting on Infinite Sea to come out because I really enjoyed The Fifth Wave. Rick Yancey does write across all age groups and genres, so I really should have picked up another of his books to read, but I really want to finish the Fifth Wave series first.

I really enjoyed Reboot. And actually I do own Rebel, it has just fallen victim to my too-long tbr list.

I read the Andromeda Strain in high school because my dad thought I would like it. But I NEED to read Jurassic Park among many other Crichton classics.

  3. I loved Easy! I have read Between the Lines, but I didn’t love it as much as I loved Easy. I have The Time Traveller’s Wife sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read. I’m afraid it won’t live up to the crazy hype surrounding it!

    1. I do hate when hype pre-ruins a book. However, I think you will still enjoy Time Traveler's Wife. It is a very different kind of book, so I think that helps since it doesn't fit into a convenient peg. Also, the writing is really good in that book.
