Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week TTT is still on hiatus so I’ve looked back at previous themes and picked one that I thought I would enjoy doing. I’ve decided to shame myself by putting out there the name of 10 popular authors whose books I am yet to read! I plan on changing this very soon as some of these are on my TBR for March!
1. Melinda Salisbury
I plan on changing this VERY soon as this trilogy is on my immediate TBR for the month. I have heard such great things about this trilogy and from Twitter alone I know that Melinda is in fact the Queen of everything.
2. Holly Bourne
Holly Bourne is one of the many Queens of UKYA and I am upset with myself that I am still yet to read her books, especially the Spinster Club books (which I own!!).
3. Samantha Shannon
I love a YA fantasy so it is strange that I’ve not read this yet. I own the first book though and am determined to get into this series before it gets too many books into it and it feels overwhelming. I’ve heard incredible things!
4. Sarah J. Maas
Possibly controversial in the world of YA book blogging but I’ve never read a Maas book! I considered the TOG series but think it’s too far in for me now!
5. Louise O’Neill
I have heard that Louise’s books are excellent reads and I own both of them already. (Do you see a common theme yet??)
6. Margaret Atwood
Margaret Atwood has such an incredible back list of books but somehow I’ve never read nay of them?! I am hoping to read The Handmaid’s Tale this month as I want to read it before the TV adaptation that’s coming out soon.
7. Maggie Stiefvater
Yet another YA fantasy series that I’ve heard a LOT about but never read. I know that Maggie has also written several other books. I’ll have to give her a try one day!
8. Non Pratt
I have so many friends who just ADORE Non’s books and her writing. I own a couple of her books and am already really looking forward to her upcoming book Truth or Dare. About time I sat down with a cuppa and read some of these!
9. Laini Taylor
I am SO horrendously ashamed that I’ve still not read her first trilogy despite owning it. I am SO excited for Strange the Dreamer that it feels wrong!! Laini is doing a signing in Cardiff in April so we all know what needs to happen before then ..
10. Marie Lu
I love YA books and I love dystopian books so why I have not read Marie Lu’s books, I do not know. Can someone get me more hours in the day please?!
