Top Ten Tuesday #363

Hi all, I hope you’ve all had a good week since I last did one of these! Did anyone watch the series finale of Killing Eve yesterday? I have FEELINGS about the way it ended so if you also do, I would be very happy to have a spoilery chat in the comments!

Anyway, it’s Tuesday, so time for another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re talking Top Ten Authors I Haven’t Read Yet But Want To. I decided to exclude 2022 debut authors from this list, as I thought that would be too easy, given that they will only have the one book, so for this list, I chose any author that has two books or more that I want to read. It was still hard to narrow down though! Here we go, just some of the authors I haven’t read yet, but want to:

  1. Betsy Cornwell

Her latest book, Reader, I Murdered Him sounds like so much fun: Victorian vigilantes? YES PLEASE. She’s got quite a few backlist books as well, so if I like the most recent one, I may dive into the rest of her backlist books.

2. Stacey Halls

I’ve got two of Stacey Halls’ books, The Familiars and The Foundling, and I’ve heard really good things about her books from my friend Hannah, so I’m hoping I’ll love them. I like that they’re both set in time periods that I don’t read a lot from, the 17th & 18th century and they focus on women from that time.

3. Maureen Johnson

I’ve heard really good things about the Truly Devious series and I want to try and read more mysteries as I generally enjoy them when I do. I’m a little sceptical about a mystery where you don’t get the resolution in one book, but I’m willing to give them a try.

4. Victoria Lee

I’m most excited for Lee’s latest novel, which is the book of hers I bought, A Lesson In Vengeance as it combines many things I love, boarding school stories, witches and LGBT+ romance (specifically f/f in this case). Her adult fantasy also looks fun as well, so I’m hoping I will love A Lesson In Vengeance and go on to read her other books.

5. Lisa Lueddecke

I’ve been following Lisa on Instagram for a while, and she seems lovely, so I really want to finally get around to reading her books. She also really lucked out on the cover front, as all her books’ covers are gorgeous which attracts me to reading them even more.

6. Amy McCaw

Amy was my Secret Sister for the Secret Sister Project run by the On The Same Page team on Twitter, so we were pen pals for a good six months back in 2017/2018, so naturally I really want to support her books. I bought Mina and The Undead last year, I’ve not got around to it yet, but I definitely want to, maybe this October, as its very much a Halloween vibes book!

7. CJ Sansom

I love the Tudors, so this series following a detective in Tudor England sounds right up my alley. I’ve been meaning to start this series for ages, so maybe this year will be the year?

8. Stuart Turton

My friend Hannah really enjoyed Evelyn Hardcastle and it’s so widely acclaimed that I’d really like to see what all the fuss is about. His second book sounds really fun too, I can never resist anything that involves pirates! I own both, so will have to get around to them at some point.

9. Fonda Lee

I’ve heard really great things about the Green Bone Saga all over Twitter, so I definitely want to see what the fuss is about. Plus I’m always looking for new adult fantasy authors to try, so we’ll see if Fonda Lee is up my street.

10. Janella Angeles

I meant to read Where Dreams Descend last year, but a book slump prevented me from really getting into it. I’m hoping to go back to it this year now that I’m feeling less slumpy and hopefully read the second book in the duology, When Night Breaks too.

So there we go, those are some Authors I’ve Not Read Yet But Want To. Have you read any of these authors? Did you enjoy their books? Let me know in the comments!

I’ll be back next week for another Top Ten Tuesday, this time we’re talking Bookish Merchandise I’d Love To Own, so basically an excuse for me to scour Etsy, which I always love!

    I’ve only read Turton on this list, and I didn’t love it, but I know I’m the exception! I hope you enjoy it and the other authors on your list!

      That’s fair enough, glad for your honest opinion. Thank you!

    I loved Victoria Lee’s dystopian duology, The Feverwake Series, and I also can’t wait to pick up A Lesson in Vengeance!

    I read Mrs England from Stacey Halls and liked it a lot so I’m quite keen to read her others. I do have The Familiars sitting on my shelf. I hear pretty good things about Fonda Lee.

    • iloveheartlandx 19/04/2022 / 6:20 pm

      Oh that’s good to hear, it’s the one book of hers I don’t have! I hope we both enjoy The Familiars. As do I, so I’ve got high hopes for her books!

    I’ve read both of Stuart Turton’s books and really enjoyed them both. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.

  6. Louise 13/04/2022 / 7:43 am

    I really enjoyed Truly DeviousΒ but I’ve been meaning to read more of her books too.

  7. Susan 13/04/2022 / 11:33 am

    I adore Maureen Johnson! Her London Shades series and her Truly Devious series are both excellent. I haven’t read any of her others, but I probably need to. I hope you enjoy her as well as all these other authors.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

    Maureen Johnson is one of my favoritessss and Truly Devious is such a good series! It works really well as a series imo and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  9. Jaime 13/04/2022 / 1:55 pm

    I’ve read two of Betsy Cornwell’s books and didn’t care for them, but I’m also super picky about retellings so that could just be me. I also gave Truly Devious a try and DNF’d it pretty early on because I was bored and didn’t care.

    I hope you find something you like among this list, though! πŸ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 19/04/2022 / 6:13 pm

      I am also super picky about retellings, so that’s interesting to know! Ooh okay, interesting, I hope it works out better for me. Thank you!

  10. Greg 13/04/2022 / 4:54 pm

    I really liked Betsy Cornwell’s debut book Tides but it occurs to me that I’m quite behind on her books now!

  11. Emily Jane 13/04/2022 / 5:50 pm

    These all sound good. I have read both of Stuart Turton’s books and prefer Devil in the Dark Water.

    Have a good rest of the week!

      Ooh that’s interesting to hear, I’ll keep that in mind when I read them. Thank you πŸ™‚

  12. WendyW 13/04/2022 / 7:03 pm

    These all sound good. I’m also looking forward to next week’s topic.

  13. Yvonne 13/04/2022 / 9:32 pm

    I’ve read The Foundling and Mrs England by Stacey Halls and liked them. I’ve been meaning to read Stuart Turton too. Hope you enjoy these authors and the others on your list.

  14. Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense 14/04/2022 / 2:46 am

    I read the first two books in Fonda Lee’s Jade City series and they are fantastic! I hope you enjoy al these authors.

  15. lindseyhabets 14/04/2022 / 6:21 pm

    Great list! I haven’t read any of them yet myself but Victoria Lee and Fonda Lee are also on my TBR.

  16. Rissi 21/04/2022 / 7:39 pm

    I ended up enjoying Truly Devious but haven’t read more in the series! I should really make the effort to do so otherwise I’d have to start over. πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland on this week, Jo!

    • iloveheartlandx 26/04/2022 / 7:44 pm

      I hope you enjoy the rest when you do read them! No worries πŸ™‚
