Top Ten Tuesday (#49) (03/04/14)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten Popular/Prolific Authors I've Never Read

I have read a wide variety of authors, but there are some popular authors where I've never read a single book they've written.  Some of these only have a few books, others have a ton.  Some of these authors are more popular than others. Most of these I'm ashamed I haven't read any of their books.

She's written a lot of books.  Some are really popular, both those that were self-published and those that were picked up by major publishers.  I own half of them, I haven't read any yet.

I may be more ashamed that I haven't read any of her books than any other author on this list.  The reason?  I've met her, I own every single one of her books, and I follow her on twitter.  I have no excuse.

The Maze Runner series was popular, and now he has a new series coming out.  He's also been on the NYT best seller list forever.  I've just never read any of his books.

She's written a few series, and I own many of her books, I just haven't read them yet.

This is one I'm kind of embarrassed about.  Her books are insanely popular, and I own a few.  I just need to read them.

Her books are really, really popular and beloved.  I own many of them, I've read none.

She's on her second series, and I haven't read any books in either series.  I own several, but just haven't read them.

She's written a bunch of YA books as well as MG, and children's I have read none of them.  Once again, I own a bunch though.

In my defense, these are more middle grade books.  They were published long after I was reading MG, and I never caught up.  I've heard they're awesome though!

She is beloved and prolific.  I haven't read a single book she's written.


  1. I'm the same with all of these except Kagawa! I hope you get round to reading them soon. This weeks TTT is making me feel so far behind haha :)

    My TTT :)

  2. Oh JLA is one of my all time faves! Love Julie Kagawa too! Kiersten and Amanda Hocking were pretty good too! Haven't read the others though!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I've only read Jennifer L. Armentrout (and loved it) but I haven't read any of the other authors on your list. Guess I should add them to mine! :)

  4. Awesome list. Jennifer Armentrout made my list this week as well.

    Rick Riordan and James Dashner are a couple of others that I could have listed. They are both on my TBR list, but I haven't gotten to them yet.

    Here is my TTT:

  5. I've never read most of these authors either, and I have Tamora Pierce and James Dashner on my list as well. I've also been meaning to pick something up by Lauren Myracle.

  6. Good list, I love Rick Riordan books and I would recommend them to anyone since they are some of my all time favorites and I was out of the middle grade age group before I started reading them so I don't think that's a deciding factor in whether or not you'll enjoy the books.

  7. I haven't read any of these authors either, great list!
