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

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/meme started by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks post is all about those authors who you need to read more of (but have only read one book so far!). I have a few of these so here goes:

Lauren Oliver
Yep, despite owning her very famous trilogy I still haven't got round to reading them! I have, however, read Panic which I loved and reviewed here for My Keeper Shelf.

John Green
Don't worry, this will be rectified shortly. Having read The Fault In Our Stars and adored it, I am eager to read every other book he has ever written. Plenty of my friends rave about him and they weren't wrong when it came to TFIOS so I doubt they'll be wrong when it comes to his other books.

CJ Omolulu
Having read and reviewed Transcendence for MKS, I've been eager to read some more of CJ's books and haven't yet had the chance to pick any up! Having given Transcendence five stars, I've got high hopes for her other books.

Bethany Wiggins
Another review for MKS with Stung, this may be a little naughty as technically I have started the second book in the series (well, a few pages) but I put it down to try and catch up with review copies. I will hopefully be picking it up again soon.

Jessica Brody
I am sensing a theme here - this list is mostly compiled of authors I discovered through reviewing for MKS (in this case, Unremembered) but some of these authors have really stayed with me, despite only reading one of their novels. Jessica Brody really captured my imagination with this book and I really can't wait to read more from her.

Susan Hill
I've read what is probably her most favourite novel The Woman In Black but I keep seeing other book bloggers and Booktubers raving about various other books so I really need to check them out!

Eva Ibbotson
I read The Secret Countess as part of a reading series over on Odd Socks and Pretty Frocks and keep meaning to pick some more books up by her - this hasn't happened yet though!

C.J Box
I read a book by C.J. Box a couple of years ago that completely took my breath away but haven't read another since and I am not sure why. This needs to be rectified as soon as possible.

Dennis Lehane
This name keeps cropping up. Shutter Island is a favourite film of mine and I keep meaning to pick up the book after reading Moonlight Mile by the same author - yet it still hasn't happened! I guess my Christmas and birthday wishlists are going to be huge, eh?

Stieg Larssen
Despite owning the other two in the series, I have only read the first book in the trilogy..oops! I'm determined to get round to them soon as the first book was amazing.

What ten authors do you need to read more of?


  1. Ah, I totally forgot to add John Green to my list. I liked The Fault In Our Stars, though I wasn't blown away like everyone else, but I do really want to read his other work! As for Lauren Oliver - you should read Before I Fall. That's the best of hers that I've read so far.

  2. One happy experience with John Green (Fault) and one disappointing experience (I'll leave this unnamed).

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday!

  3. Great list! I've read only the 1st Larsson book, too, and I want to finish the trilogy, but still haven't. I've read only Lauren Oliver's 2 MG books, they were cute & fun, but haven't yet tried her YA books. As for John Green - let's just say I've had mixed feelings. Some of his books I Ioved, one I didn't quite like & one I only liked, and the only one I still haven't read is Paper Towns, but I still want to read it. Haven't tried the rest, but I hope you'll enjoy all!
