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

Posted January 20, 2015 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 16 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.

This week is a freebie, and I missed this one a few months ago. So, we’re talking about authors we like, but haven’t been able to get enough of them yet! I’m pretty bad at finding an author and then reading a TON of books by them. I love exploring and promoting new authors, so I’ve read a ton of books by a ton of different authors. Many of them have released new books and I just haven’t had time to grab them yet!

Jennifer L. Armentrout
I read Don’t Look Back, and loved it! Now I want to read more from JLA! I’m thinking of starting the Lux series. Or is there another I should read instead?

Tessa Dare
I thought Romancing the Duke was really cute, and I would love to read more from Tessa! I’ve got Say Yes to the Marquess, which is the second book in the Castles Ever After series, but I’ve also got A Night to Surrender, and Surrender of a Siren. Where do I begin with these!? Or, does she have any book you love even more that I should get?

John Green
I actually have not read a full-length novel from John Green yet, but I want to! I really liked his short story in the Let It Snow anthology, and just don’t know where to go now. I hate crying, and I hate reading sad books… are any of his not tear-jerkers?

Abigail Haas
Dangerous Girls was insane and intense! I loved it! Now I’m wanting to read Dangerous Boys. Is it as good? I’m worried I won’t love it as much.

Kirsten Hubbard
Wanderlove is one of my favorite books ever, and I want Kirsten to write more like it! Like Mandarin does not sound like my kind of book, and her new book coming out this year called Watch the Sky is a middle grade… so I don’t know what to do. She got a thriller called Cloudforest coming out in 2016 that sounds good. I might just have to wait until then.

Sophie Kinsella
I don’t even know where to begin with Sophie. I really liked I’ve Got Your Number. I think I own the entire shopaholic series, but there’s others of hers I hear more about like Remember Me? and The Undomestic Goddess. Thoughts?

J.K. Rowling
This is kind of a no-brainer. I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone last year and really want to finish the series this year. We’ll see if I have time!

Mary E. Pearson
I LOVED The Kiss of Deception sooooo much, and I own the Jenna Fox Chronicles, which I’m pretty excited about. We’ll see if I get to it before The Heart of Betrayal comes out, which I will stop the world for.

Marie Rutkoski
Ahhhh… The Winner’s Curse was glorious! It was super good, and I’ve got an ARC of The Winner’s Crime staring at me as we speak. But I also have The Shadow Society, which sounds pretty cool. How are her other books?

Anna Scarlet
This is more of a plea than a decree because Anna Scarlet has only written one book, Degrees of Wrong, which I loved. I want more, whether it be a sequel or a new standalone. I don’t care. But I loved it! And did you know Anna Scarlet is Anna Banks? All the more reason for her to write another adult novel. :D

  1. Ooh, for Tessa Dare I’d recommend Any Duchess Will Do, I LOVED IT! It was funny and swoony and just ALL OF THE FEELINGS.
    I actually like Sophie Kinsella’s standalones more than her Shopaholic series (which didn’t really work for me), Twenties Girl is one of my favourites by her. I also really liked Remember Me? Can You Keep a Secret? and the Undomestic Goddess, I basically never go wrong with her standalones.

  2. It’s been a while since I last read these particular John Green books, but I don’t remember Paper Towns or An Abundance of Katherines as being what I would call sad books. There weren’t necessarily extremely happy either, but I don’t remember crying. I would also recommend reading Will Grayson, Will Grayson, which was written along with David Levithan, too though because that book was great. I’ll be honest, I do remember crying during that one, but it was actually happy tears.

    And I always get excited over the idea of anyone reading Harry Potter for the first time. Haha.

  3. I am a huge fan of JLA. I loved her Lux series, Daemon is quite the literary hottie. She, also, have a an adult stand alone that this tied in with the series, Obsessions which is worth the read.

    I also like her other YA series, The Dark Elements.

    And if you want to read more adult books, she writes them under J. Lynn, both Gmable Brothers and Stay with Me are super steamy reads.

  4. Ohh, great topic! I wish I’d thought of it! I have only read 2 John Green books…I want to read the rest…and re-read the one I wound up not focusing on. So it’s sort of like one! I want to read more Mary Pearson, too. KOD & HOD are so good. I just have to read Jenna Fox now! I didn’t like SHADOW SOCIETY quite as much, but the concept is still interesting! I would love for Anna to write more under her pen name!

  5. I haven’t read much by Jennifer L. Armentrout, but I did recently read her newest, Wicked. I also read White Hot Kiss, which is the first book in her Dark Elements series. Both were great!
    I’ve read three books by John Green, but the only one with 0 potential for tears is Paper Towns. I really enjoyed it, and I didn’t find it especially emotionally charged.

  6. Great list, lady! I’ve read almost all of JLA’s books and they are just so much fun! My favorites are the Lux series, her NA Wait for You series, and The Return.
    Romancing the Duke is one of my favorite HRs, but I haven’t liked Tessa Dare’s other stuff, sadly. :/
    I agree about Kristen Hubbard – I want to read something else by her too!
