Top Ten Authors I've Only Read Once, But Want To Read More.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and the Bookish


With all the books I have piling up on my shelves and on my Kindle, sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be able to finish a series or read another book by an author I really enjoyed.
Creating this list really made me want to jump back into these author's work!

J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1)
Yep, I'm one of those rare people that hasn't read the entire Harry Potter series. I really did enjoy the first book in the series, so I can't wait to read more. And maybe one day I'll give her adult books a try.

Lauren DeStefano
Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)
I read the first book in the Chemical Garden series back in 2011 right around the time it was released. I really enjoyed Lauren's storytelling style so I couldn't wait to get the next one...I have it. Just haven't read it. And now she has other series that sound fantastic that I want to read. I really need to get caught up on my DeStefano books.

Beth Revis
Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)
Beth Revis made me fall for her stories with Across the Universe. It was the very first ARC I'd ever received and I could not wait to read it. I devoured the book. That's where that stopped. Now I realize I've been missing the rest of her space story in my life.

Michelle Hodkin
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)
I can't believe I'm actually saying this one. Michelle Hodkin was a mean and twisted person ending The Unbecoming the way she did. So now I've been dying to find out how things end for a while. This one I've purposely been avoiding though. I've been waiting for Retribution to come out so I can binge read the 2nd and 3rd books.

Leigh Bardugo
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)
The Grisha Trilogy is hot right now! Everywhere I look people seem to be talking about it. Shadow and Bone was fantastic. It was such an interesting and new fantasy story. I've been avoiding spoilers like the I really need to get around the other books soon.

Mindy McGinnis
Not a Drop to Drink (Not a Drop to Drink, #1)
Not a Drop to Drink was such a pleasant surprise. Can I have more by Mindy like now please?

Alexandra Bracken
The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)
Just thinking about The Darkest Minds makes me really happy. Never Fade is coming up on my TBR list and I cannot wait to get to it. I also really want to read Brightly Woven by Alexandra and her new series that will be coming out in 2015.

Kasie West
Pivot Point (Pivot Point, #1)
I've heard really good things about Kasie's contemps so I really would like to give them a shot.

Rick Yancey
The 5th Wave (The Fifth Wave, #1)
This was another story that took me by surprise and I love the way Rick executed it. Definitely looking forward to something else by him.

Madeleine L'Engle
A Wrinkle in Time (A Wrinkle in Time Quintet, #1)
I've only read A Wrinkle in Time from this series, but I cannot wait to see what happens in the other books.

What about you? What books have you read that you want more from that author? Any from my list?
Have a great week, readers!


  1. Ok, so where to start with yours....

    The Darkest minds is one of my fave series, and pretty excited for the third and final book, and I've been told Brightly woven is a must read if you like fantasy.
    Not a drop to drink I loved the characters, and need to get to reading the second book that's on my kindle.
    The unbecoming of Mara Dyer was also another book that I really enjoyed but never got around to reading the second, and with the third one coming out soon would be a good time to start.
    Wither is another I read, but I din't enjoyit as much as I thought I would, maybe it was just the timing.
    across the universe I have all 3 books I just haven't started any of them yet.

  2. Oh man how haven't you read Harry Potter? I've read the whole series more than 10-15 times. Though it's been a good 3-4 years since I last read them.
    I've only read The Distance Between Us by Kasie West and I need to read more of her works too. Michelle Hodkin, I never started it because I wanted to read the 3 books together. I haven't read any books of the rest of the authors.
    My TTT

  3. I've not read A Wrinkle in Time but have heard a lot about it recently and think I should really give it a go!

  4. I'm in the same boat with Shadow and Bone. I read Brightly Woven and loved it, but I have read The Darkest Minds. Good list!

  5. I need to finish Not a Drop to Drink! I knew I should have stuck it out. And you can never go wrong with Madeleine L'Engle!

  6. I also need to finish the Grisha Trilogy! Great list.

  7. OMG you definitely need to finish the Harry Potter and Mara Dyer series! Well, when the last Mara Dyer book comes out later this year. Fantastic list!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  8. I'm agreeing with everyone here who says you should read Harry Potter! Seriously that series is so good.

  9. I totally need to read Rick, Mindy, and pretty much everyone on your list! I love their books, so many books, so little time!
