Top Ten Tuesday # 3 (Authors I've Only Read One Book From But Need To Read More)



TOP TEN TUESDAY is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and today I’m gonna tell you some authors I’ve only read one book from but I need to read more. If you wanna know, keep reading!




                 


  • Rainbow Rowell. I’ve only read Fangirl, which I loved to the moon and back. I do want to read Eleanor and Park and if it’s as good as everyone else is saying it is I will then read Attachments and Landline. 
  • Holly Black. I read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown back in April and really enjoyed it. I know she just published The Iron Trial (co-written with Cassandra Clare) and she has a book coming out next year.
  • Ken FollettThe Pillars of The Earth is one of the best historical fiction books I’ve ever read. I never got around to reading World Without End but I will change that in the future. Also, I want to read his new trilogy: The Century Trilogy
  • Morgan Matson. This summer I decided to pick up Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour and I’m still smiling every time I think about it. Next on my list are Since You’ve Been Gone and Second Chance Summer.

           

  • Markus Zusak. The Book Thief is the only book I’ve read by him. And it was brilliant indeed. Maybe I should give I Am The Messenger a go.
  • Rachel Hawkins. I want to read the Hex Hall trilogy so badly! Only thing I’ve read by her is Rebel Belle, and I did enjoy it.
  • Victoria Scott. Again I’ve only read Fire & Flood and I’m dying waiting for the second book, Salt & Stone.

          

  • Stephen King. The only thing I have been able to finish by him is Carrie and it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be, so a total win there. I do plan on reading Under The Dome, but I don’t know when.
  • Deborah Harkness. In the summer of 2013 I picked up A Discovery of Witches and I did like it a lot. Now that the entire trilogy has been published I have no excuse. I need to read them.
  • Gillian Flynn. Back in June, 2013 I found Gone Girl being alone at my local bookstore and I thought to myself, why not? I bought it and devoured it. But I’ve haven’t read any other book by her. Maybe is time to change that.

And that's the end of this week Top Ten Tuesday. Let me know if you've read any books from any of these authors and also link me yours Top Ten Tuesday!

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
