Top Ten Tuesday | Authors I've Only Read One Book From & Need To Read More

The Top Ten Tuesday Meme is brought to you via
The Broke and The Bookish

Oh, hello!

I hope you all are feeling lovely and having great starts to your weeks. I'm feeling pretty swell myself.

But, I'm also feeling kind of bad because I haven't posted a Top Ten Tuesday in almost a month.

What have I been doing? I hadn't even realized that it had been that long.

The good news is that I'm back in full force, ready to talk books with all of you awesome people.

But, before I begin, I wanted to mention that I am hosting MY FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY, and you guys should check it out if you are interested in winning $20 worth of books from the Book Depository.  Okay, now down to business...

This week I am counting down the Top Ten authors I've only read one book from and NEED to read more.  This was actually kind of hard because I find that I don't read many stand-alones.  And, I don't tend to not finish a series.

Bring the beat in...

10) Maggie Stiefvater

I recently finished The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater and I enjoyed that story.  I know that she's published many other books and I would like to give some of those a try.  Especially The Scorpio Races.

9) Michelle Hodkin

I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, and I loved it.  But, I haven't gotten around to finishing the series.  But, I've heard amazing things about it and I'm dying to get to it!  Hopefully I'll get my hands on the sequel and final installment soon and I'll be able to binge-read.

8) David Levithan

I read Every Day by David Levithan and fell in love with his writing.  I have been wanting to read The Realm of Possibility for the longest time.  And, also Will Grayson, Will Grayson which he wrote with John Green.

7) Ian McEwan

In high school I read Atonement and it was one of the few assigned readings that I actually enjoyed.  Since then I've been wanting to try some of McEwan's other works such as On Chesil Beach and Sweet Tooth.

6) David Nicholls

One Day is one of my favorite books.  (I still haven't seen the movie starring Anne Hathaway, but I really need to get on that.)  Nicholls has a book coming out at the end of September titled Us, and I'm sure that it is going to be amazing.

5) Gayle Forman

I honestly don't know why I haven't read Where She Went.  I absolutely loved If I Stay.  I guess I'm just kind of drowning in my TBR pile, slowly but surely making my way through it.  But, for every one book I finish, five more get added.

4) F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby is another one of my favorites.  I'm dying to read Tender Is The Night, This Side of Paradise, and The Beautiful and Damned.  I think that I've made some sort of silent pact with myself to not read these books until I buy that beautiful F. Scott Fitzgerald collection.  You know the one:

Yep.  That one.

3) Cecelia Ahern

P.S. I Love You is one of my favorite movies, and I love the book, too.  Next I want to read Love, Rosie which has also been made into a movie starring Lily Collins (who I adore).

2) Audrey Niffenegger

Another one of my all-time favorites is The Time Traveler's Wife.  I seriously need to do a reread of that one soon because it is so beautiful and wonderful.  Another book of Niffenegger's that I've been wanting to read is Her Fearful Symmetry.

1) Rainbow Rowell

Okay, so I kind of cheated with this one.  I've read Fangirl, and I'm currently reading Eleanor & Park.  But, I haven't read Eleanor & Park because I haven't finished it.  Right?

Rainbow Rowell is a truly amazing author.  It only took one book for me to fall in love with every piece of paper her pen has touched.  (Wait, that's not how author's write books anymore is it?  Pen and paper?  So old school.  What generation was I born in?)
