Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
Wow, this list has the potential to be astronomically large – there are many authors I’ve read one book from but desperately need to read the rest of their works.
Most of the time it’s because they have a back catalogue that I’ve yet to delve into (having started with one of their newer books). Sometimes it can be that I’ve discovered a new author, read their debut and it’s years before I get back to them, in the meantime they have released several (or many) books.
Whatever the reason, here are some authors that I’ve only read a singular book from but I very much need to read the rest of their output:
1. A. Meredith Walters: I’ve only read Reclaiming the Sand as yet, but this book was so great I know I have to seek out the author’s additional works.
2. Benjamin Alire Sáenz: I’ve only read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe and while I have it on good authority that it is perhaps the best of the author’s books, I am anxious to read more.
3. David Levithan: I’ve only read Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (which I enjoyed quite a bit) so I really would like to get to the rest of Levithan’s books, sooner rather than later.
4. Jaclyn Dolamore: Between the Sea and the Sky was a great little book so I really do want to read the author’s other books – not sure why I haven’t yet, to be honest…
5. Kirsten Hubbard: This author doesn’t have as many books out as others on this list, but it doesn’t make the fact I haven’t sought them out yet any less shameful considering Wanderlove is a firm favourite of mine.
6. Leigh Bardugo: I really, really need to read the rest of the Grisha trilogy because I did really like the setting. Plus, it has The Darkling, ’nuff said!
7. Morgan Matson: Second Chance Summer was a really powerful book, that hit me in the feels because I have gone through something similar to the main character. I so need to read the rest of her books.
8. Nikki Godwin: Falling from the Sky was just such a perfect read for me, I desperately need to check out the author’s back catalogue – I have a good feeling I will love the rest of her works.
9. Sara Zarr: This is one of my all-time favourite books so I am ashamed to say I haven’t read the rest of Sara Zarr’s output. I need to do something about that stat!
10. Sarah Ockler: Bittersweet was such a feel-good read (ironically, given the title!) so I have to make reading Ockler’s books a priority (along with everything else of this list haha!)
