Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme previously hosted by the lovely folks @ The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl

This week’s theme is top ten:

Books By My Favourite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read

This topic is one that speaks really strongly to me, because I have so many books by my favourite authors that I haven’t read yet! It’s actually scary! Today’s topic was actually ‘Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted to Visit’ but I found this way too difficult. Mainly because I don’t have a burning desire to visit any bookstores or libraries.

Sure, if I was nearby I would definitely look a few places up and make a point of visiting them. But I wouldn’t actively choose to visit a place because of a bookstore or library.

So, instead of this I have gone with ‘Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read’. I actually missed this topic a few weeks ago and was actually pretty bummed about it.

1. The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison

Katherine Addison is a pseudonym for one of my favourite authors Sarah Monette who wrote the ‘Doctrine of Labyrinths’ series. This is one of my all-time favourite fantasy series. So why haven’t I picked up ‘The Goblin Emperor’? Beats me! 🤷

2. Casket of Souls by Lynn Flewelling

The ‘Nightrunner’ series is a firm favourite of mine and I adore Lynn Flewelling’s writing. Yet, I still haven’t read the last two books in this series. Maybe because I don’t want it to be over?

3. Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier

Juliet Marillier is such a beautiful writer and I have adored each and every one of her books. However, for some reason I still haven’t read this series despite owning all the books. I don’t get it either because Marillier is on my shortlist of favourite authors.

4. The Rose & The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

I f’loved ‘The Wrath & The Dawn’ and was so excited for the follow-up. Renee Ahdieh just has a way with words that speaks to me. Guess what? Still haven’t finished the second book in this duology. I suck. 🙁

5. Winter by Marissa Meyer

I don’t know what it is about this series. I read ‘Cinder’ and ‘Scarlet’ back to back and absolutely loved them both. Yet when ‘Cress’ came out I dug my heels in. It took me about a year and a half to read it but I loved it even more than the first two books. Yet, ‘Winter’ lingers on my shelf, unread and unwanted (not really unwanted but you get what I mean). 😛

6. Dust to Dust by Karina Halle

How I love the ‘Experiment in Terror’ series. Karina Halle is a blindingly addictive writer and although her contemporaries are golden I still have the biggest soft spot for her first horror series. But I still haven’t read the last book. I know with this one it definitely is that I don’t want to say goodbye to this fantastic series.

7. Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews

The Kate Daniels series is amazing. One of my utmost favourite urban fantasy worlds. I love everything that I have read from this writing duo but I seemed to stop reading the series at ‘Magic Breaks’. I really need to get back to it and soon.

8. Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead

The ‘Vampire Academy’ series is very special to me. I re’read it frequently (due another re-read pretty soon actually). Richelle Mead is definitely one of my all-time favourite authors yet the ‘Bloodlines’ series is sitting unfinished on my bookshelf.

9. Dark Currents by Jacqueline Carey

Another one of my favourite authors; I still can’t believe I haven’t read this series yet! Maybe I have a little urban fantasy fatigue?? Who knows, but I need to do something about it soon! 😉

10. The Gaslight Dogs by Karin Lowachee

I think I have put off reading this book for so long because I no there is no new output (yet) from one of my all-time favourite writers. I know the author is writing a new book in the ‘Warchild’ series (yay!!) but I think I have been saving this one.

  1. I am the exact same way with the Lunar Chronicles! I also have Winter left to get to, but for some reason I just am not picking it up?? I’m glad to hear I’m not alone, haha. I really need to get to The Goblin Emperor as well. Hope you finally get a chance to read these. 🙂
