Top 10 Tuesday | Ten Popular Authors I Have Yet To Read!


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

The Sin Eater’s Daughter (The Sin Eater’s Daughter, #1)  The Sleeping Prince (The Sin Eater’s Daughter, #2)  The Scarecrow Queen (The Sin Eater’s Daughter, #3)

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

Am I Normal Yet? (The Spinster Club, #1)  How Hard Can Love Be? (The Spinster Club, #2)  What's a Girl Gotta Do? (The Spinster Club, #3)  ...And a Happy New Year? (The Spinster Club, #3.5)

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

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)  The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)  The Song Rising (The Bone Season, #3)

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

  Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)  A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

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

Only Ever Yours  Asking For It

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

The Handmaid's Tale

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

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)  The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)  Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)  The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)

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

Trouble  Unboxed  Truth or Dare

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

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)  Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)

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

The Young Elites (The Young Elites, #1)  Legend (Legend, #1)

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?!

  1. This is a great previous theme to pick out! The only author on this list I’ve actually read is Atwood. In fact, I hadn’t even heard of Salisbury or Shannon before this post! Thank you for enlightening me. I’ll have to check those out. What a lovely (And colorful!) list. Are any of these books on your TBR short list?

  3. Ahh there’s so many of these I haven’t read either like Holly Bourne, Samantha Shannon, Louise O’Neil, Margaret Atwood, Marie Lu… Hopefully I haven’t read SJM’s Throne of Glass series, but I have read ACOTAR and I was not a huge fan tbh. I ADORE Maggie Stiefvater and Laini Taylor though so I definitely recommend them 😀

    • I’m really looking forward to Strange the Dreamer but may try to squeeze in Laini’s trilogy first! I’m so glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t read some of these – it seems like the whole world has!
      TBH I’m not sure if I’ll ever read SJM but if I did it would probably be ACOTAR because there are already SO many TOG books!


  4. Aside from Margaret Atwood (I read Hag-Seed, but haven’t read The Haidmaid’s Tale YET) and Maggie Stiefvater, I haven’t read any of these authors either.

    Not going to lie, I am probably never going to pick up a Sarah J. Maas book lol I don’t even know why?

  5. Okaaaaaay, you need to read Holly Bourne as soon as you can. But I definitely feel you!
    According to this list…
    I have read 5/10 authors and loved 2/5 of them and hated 1/5..
    And I want to read 3/10 of them like the hype is all over me but I need to find the time and a new budget LOL

  6. I haven’t read Salisbury, Lu or Taylor yet, but I have each of their books at home to get to this year for sure.
    And you really REALLY need to read the Handmaid’s Tale! It’s absolutely brilliant 🙂
    Happy Reading!

  7. The Raven Boys, ACOTAR and ACOMAF and the Handmaid’s Tale are all must reads! There’s a lot of mixed reviews from TRB because it’s honestly a really weird series, but it’s beautifully written and I adore it 😍. ACOMAF is seriously one of my favorite books ever (*fangirling*) and the third book comes out in May!

  8. Oh dear, this looks pretty similar to my list of must-read authors too. Getting there, slowly – but those damn authors keep publishing new books. Maybe we should ask them to stop for a few months so we can all catch up???? 😉

  9. Though I’d like too (and really *should* since I own the series), I’ve never read Sarah J. Maas’ books either! They look interesting though. Marie Lu is another author who I’d like to read. I’ll have to remedy this soon. 🙂


  10. I read Maggie Stiefvater’s “Shiver” series and loved it! It was my favorite for a long time. I’ve also read Legend by Marie Lu and loved it so much! I had some disagreements with the third book but overall love the series. Have fun reading these authors!


  11. Atwood, Salisbury, Shannon, & Lu…all on my mental running list of authors I need to get to…thanks now I don’t feel so bad 😂😂😂

    Now Laini….that woman holds my heart in the palm of her hands with her beautifully strange writing 🙌🏼 I devoured the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series & already pre-ordered Strange the Dreamer from the U.K. & just. Ahhhhhhh! Can’t contain my excitement, please do read her books 🤗🤗🤗


  12. You must read Marie Lu, Maggie Stiefvater, and SJM! I haven’t read a Margaret Atwood and Louise O Neill book either, but I have a couple of their reads, and they sound really interesting.


  13. You NEED to read Melinda Salisbury! I loved the series though I’m still waiting on the final book.
    And The Handmaid’s Tale is incredible.
    I have only read ACOTAR, and I liked that…so I hope you get a chance there.
    Marie Lu’s Legend series is amazing but I haven’t finished The Young Elites series. I haven’t read The Midnight Star. But that series you have to be in the mood for, I think.
    Good luck! There’s so many good books and so little time!


  14. Noooo! You can’t make me choose! *g* I haven’t read any Shannon, Maas or Atwood either but I really can’t choose who I’d recommend most of the others. They’re all so different! They’re all brilliant though – you have some of my favourite authors there. 🙂
