Top Ten Tuesday: Unread Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the Broke and Bookish.

This week's topic:

Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read 

1) Jane Austen- Shame on me... I know.

2) Victoria Schwab- She's got a good number of books out now. And I have heard nothing but great things about her stuff. Why haven't I read any of it? Because I'm crazy that's why.

3) Patrick Ness- I feel like SO many people have read Ness. Again, another well known author who has written a few books and I have yet to experience them.

4) Rick Riordan- Yup- Haven't read the Percy Jackson series or the Heroes of Olympus series. I have the whole Percy Jackson box set sitting on my shelf. I just need to get on it.

5) Meg Cabot- Everyone who is anyone has read Meg Cabot, but not me. What is going wrong in the world?

6) Harper Lee- I have not read To Kill a Mockingbird. I keep meaning to. Harper Lee is a great American author. Yes, I am hanging my head in shame.

7) E. Lockhart- I feel like E. Lockhart is a pretty big figure in the world of contemporary.  But, again, I haven't read anything by her. I am pretty excited about this year's release of We Were Liars. That may break me into the world of E. Lockhart.

8) Dean Koontz- This guys is a favourite of my mum's. But I've never read him. He's kind of a favourite of everyone's. But with Odd Thomas being adapted for the big screen.

9) Stephen King- This is probably no surprise ad I don't read horror (I can't. I'm a big chicken). I tried once to read a book of his (for my book club) and I couldn't.

10) Kelley Armstrong- This is kind of sad because I think Kelly is a Canadian author. She is wildly popular and again, I hang my head in shame.

That's my list everybody. I hope you enjoy.


  1. Rick Riordan and Meg Cabot come highly recommended. I'd definitely encourage you to try them out. Surprisingly, I enjoyed Cabot's other works more than The Princess Diaries. Don't worry, I'm a scaredy cat too and it wasn't until recently I read Carrie by Stephen King (in bright daylight while always in the presence of other company) and I don't think I'll revisit the horror genre anytime soon.

    1. I know, I know. It's my 2014 goal to read Pride and Prejudice.

  3. YAY someone else has Jane Austen on their list!!! So happy I'm not alone :) E. Lockhart is fab, you should def read The Boyfriend List or Frankie Landau-Banks. Also Meg Cabot books are adorable.

  4. Rick Riordan! You must read Percy Jackson! I haven't read a lot of the authors on your list either but mostly it's because I'm not interested! *Gasp* But seriously read Rick Riordan!

  5. Ok, there are a couple on your list I haven't read, but for all the rest, READ THEM. You don't even UNDERSTAND, you have some excellent authors in that list!!

  6. I think you might have just killed me by having Meg Cabot, Kelley Armstrong and Rick Riordan on your list... Yep. No pulse.

    1. Says the one who hasn't read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows... ;)

  7. Heh, Jane Austen and Rick Riordan are very recent reads for me, so don't feel too bad! Obviously you know that I can't recommend Patrick Ness highly enough! Maybe you could start with A Monster Calls because it's shorter, but still gives you a good taste of his writing.

  8. Meg Cabot was one of my favorite authors for a long time, haha. I really like Boy Meets Girl (and of course, princess diaries!)


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
