Hi all! I hope you’ve all had a good past week, mine has been relatively quiet, mostly just doing Uni stuff, though I do have the welcome drinks for my Uni’s Equestrian Club on Thursday, which is our first social of the year and should be super fun and a chance to meet all our new members.
Anyway, I’m back today with a new Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Today we’re talking about Books From Our Favourite Authors We Haven’t Read Yet. This topic has me feeling slightly judged because there are more books than I’m proud of by my favourite authors that I haven’t read, but hey, I’ll get to them eventually! Here we go, books by my favourite authors that I haven’t read:
- Wonder Woman: Warbringer-Leigh Bardugo
I only discovered Leigh Bardugo’s books last year, and I’ve only read the Six of Crows duology and the first Grisha book, so safe to say, I have a lot to catch up on! Wonder Woman is one of my TBR challenge books this year so I will definitely be getting to it before the end of the year and I’m super excited because I loved the Wonder Woman movie.
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: Siege and Storm, Ruin and Rising,
2. Chasing The Stars-Malorie Blackman
I loved Malorie Blackman’s books when I was younger, Noughts and Crosses was the first YA book that I ever read, so I jumped on her latest release when it came out, since I found a signed first edition, but I haven’t really been feeling in a space mood, so I haven’t read it. Hopefully soon!
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: HA HA HA SO MANY. Malorie Blackman has too massive a back catalogue to list here, but rest assured I haven’t read most of them.
3. Thunderhead-Neal Shusterman
So I read the first book in this series Scythe last year, and really enjoyed it, so naturally I got the sequel, but I just haven’t got around to reading it yet. Honestly, it will probably end up being a next summer read as it’s over 500 pages and I tend to avoid those during term time!
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: Skinjacker Series, Ansty Bonano series, Bruiser and many others, again Neal Shusterman has a massive back catalogue!
4. A Court of Wings and Ruin-Sarah J Maas
I know, I know, I’m judging me a little too. Okay a lot. Well not as much as my friend Nicola judges me for not having read this book but still. I really enjoyed ACOMAF but Sarah J Maas books are gigantic beasts and I can’t really fit more than one in a year, so this series has kind of gone on the backburner until I’m done with the Throne of Glass series.
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: A Court of Frost and Starlight, Catwoman
5. All The Crooked Saints-Maggie Stiefvater
I meant to read this when I got it, I really did, but as usual, I had twenty million other books to read and just totally forgot about it. It’s another one on my TBR challenge for this year, in fact it’s my read for next month, so I will be reading it very soon!
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: Shiver Trilogy, Lament & Ballad
6. Our Dark Duet-Victoria Schwab
I read This Savage Song last year and I bought Our Dark Duet quite soon after it came out but…..well I don’t really know what happened, I read a lot of other books instead and since I wasn’t overly keen on This Savage Song, it just wasn’t at the top of my list. I do want to finish off the duology and I’ve heard that the second book is better, so hopefully I will read it soon!
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: The Unbound, City of Ghosts, The Near Witch, Vengeful, Everyday Angel series (I only started reading her books last year, so I have quite a few that I haven’t read yet)
7. Midnight-Derek Landy
I’m actually relatively well caught up with Derek Landy’s stuff, I only have this one left to read, and it’s his latest release in the new stage of the Skulduggery Pleasant series so I’m not feeling so bad about this one.
8. Off The Page-Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
I read the first book in this YA duology that Jodi Picoult wrote with her daughter years ago, but for some reason, I never got around to the second one, and I’d really like to read it, because I really enjoyed the first one.
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: Well okay, so there’s only two books that she co-wrote with her daughter and I’ve read one, but I have many, many, many of Jodi Picoult’s solo written books to read-again, she has a massive back catalogue!
9. The Kane Chronicles-Rick Riordan
I’ve actually done a pretty good job at keeping up with the mountain of books that Rick Riordan seems to release, but I kind of missed the boat on The Kane Chronicles. To be honest, I’m not that fussed about Egyptian mythology, so I don’t feel too bad about it.
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: The various Percy Jackson add on books & Magnus Chase add on books & the Percy Jackson and Kane Chronicles crossovers
10. All My Secrets-Sophie McKenzie
I loved Sophie McKenzie’s books when I was a teenager, but over the past few years, I’ve kind of been missing her recent releases. On the one hand, I did love her books when I read them, but on the other hand I feel like I’ve kind of grown out of them now, so I don’t know if I will try to catch up on her latest releases (and I didn’t love her adult thrillers that much).
ALSO HAVEN’T READ: Flynn books, Luke and Eve books, SweetFreak, Here We Lie, The Black Sheep, Train Time To The Blitz, Arthur’s Sword
What books by your favourite authors haven’t you read? Have you read any of these? Did you enjoy them? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s topic is Authors I’d Love To Meet but honestly I’ve done that topic twice already, and my list hasn’t changed much since the last time I did it, so I’m going to do Characters I’d Love To Meet instead since that’s a lot easier for me! In the meantime, I’m going to try and sort out a Jo Talks post and a Writing Corner post before the end of the month, so look out for those.
