Top Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

Top Authors I've Only Read One Book From
But NEED to Read More
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

If I really love an author, I tend to devour their works.  Morgan Matson...had to read her newest the night it came out.  Stephanie Perkins...might have "borrowed" it from the library the night before its actual release.  E. Lockhart...dedicated an entire summer to reading her entire collection.  But there are some authors that I lose track of and now have every intention of revisiting to see if it really is true love.

Who is on your list?

1) Marie Rutkoski
The Winner's Curse is one of my favorites this year, and it looks like Ms. Rutkoski has a few more tricks up her sleeve.  I'll have to investigate.

2) A.S. King
Ask the Passengers was a total surprise for me, and I'm very interested in seeing she handles other topics with as much compassion as she did teenage sexuality.

3) Tessa Gratton
The Curiosities was the first short story collection I fell in love with, in part because of Ms. Gratton. Now I NEED to see if she excels in full-length novels.

4) JoJo Moyes
Oh the tears of Me Before You...Moyes knows how to pull my heartstrings.

5) Juliet Marillier
A refreshing fantasy read last year.  I've totally failed at getting my hands on the sequel to Shadowfell, but I think I'm going to have to explore her other works as well.

6) Barry Lyga
I Hunt Killers gave me the willies.  It was kind of awesome.  Now I've got to see what else Lyga can do.

7) Diana Peterfreund
For Darkness Shows the Stars was an amazing take on Austen's Persuasion.  Another series fail that I totally intend on remedying.

8) Elizabeth Wein
Code Name Verity just about broke me.  Wein stole my heart and my sanity on more than one occasion.  Rose Under Fire is going to have to be a must.

9) M.T. Anderson
Feed was an amazing audiobook,  Anderson has a way with setting and dialogue, and he's on my to-read list about five times.

10) Neal Shusterman
Unwind is one of my all-time favorite teen books.  Then why, you're probably asking yourself, haven't you continued reading the series at the very least?  Well...I've read about five hundred books before absorbing myself in that particular dystopian tale.  I'm going to have to re-read, and I just haven't found the time.  One day.  One day soon :)

Happy reading!

  1. Oh, I adore Juliet Marillier. Her seven waters books are so fabulous! Quite a few of these others are in my TBR right now. I have actually read two Jojo Moyes so she didn't make my list but I definitely need to read more by her. (Did you see the casting news for ME BEFORE YOU?!)

  2. No! I didn't even realize they were making it into a movie! I'm not sure my heart could handle actually seeing this particular story played out on screen :)

  3. I haven't read Ask the Passengers, but King's Everybody Sees the Ants is a book that I try to convince everyone to read. It's an amazing portrait of pain in all it's forms.
