It’s Top Ten Tuesday! For another thirty something minutes here in Kansas at least. 🙂 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by and hosted at The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there will be a new top ten list pick for book bloggers to share their lists on. You can join in and link up here.
This week’s top ten list is:
Ten Authors We’ve Only Read One Book From & Need To Read More!
Lisa McKay – This is a Christian author whose book I picked up simply because it was a dollar. Plus the summary was interesting. 🙂 This was years ago and she hasn’t come out with any new fiction, but has come out with a memoir. I’d like to read more of her in the future.
Amy Zhang – Amy Zhang is actually an author whose debut I haven’t finished yet, but I love it so far. Amy’s only in high school so the fact that she’s written and had this book published is just so awesome and great. I love Falling Into Place so far and I would love to see her come out with new works.
F. Scott Fitzgerald – The one book I read by Fitzgerald was The Great Gatsby, a book I really enjoyed in high school. I loved the time period he wrote them in, although I wasn’t there, I felt he encompassed it perfectly.
Ava Dellaira – Ava is a debut author who wrote Love Letters to The Dead. Although I felt the book had some small faults, I really enjoyed it and want to read more.
Jenny Han – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han’s most recent release, barely, is the first book I’ve read by her. I loved how the book focused on romance along with familial aspects, which I really love to see in stories. This definitely won’t be the last book I’ve read by her, as in anticipation of Ashes to Ashes, I have purchased Burn For Burn and Fire with Fire.
Stephen Chbosky – Perks of Being A Wallflower is one of my favorite books I’ve read. Stephen Chbosky hasn’t really written anything besides Perks, which is really unfortunate. I feel Stephen captured high school perfectly, focusing on music, love, friendship and coming of age. I would love to see him write a Young Adult novel taking place in the digital age.
Nick Hornby – Unlike a lot of others, High Fidelity was not the Nick Hornby book I read. Rather I read Juliet, Naked. A book discounted at Walmart which focused on a guy obsessed with a singer who disappeared twenty years ago. I loved the style the book was in and the characters, although annoying at times. I would love to read another book by Nick, if he came up with a similar focus on music.
David Levithan – David Levithan is one of my recent “discoveries” as I just finished reading Every Day, his most recent book, a couple weeks ago. I loved Every Day a lot even with it’s faults. I would definitely like to read more of his books in the future.
Jennifer E. Smith – The Statistical Probability is the only book I’ve read by Jennifer despite owning This Is What Happy Looks Like. I really like the way she wrote the novel and look forward to reading her most recent book, The Geography of You and Me.
Rainbow Rowell – I’ve read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow. I adored this book, I loved absolutely almost everything about it. It was fantastic. It’s on my favorite books I’ve ever read list. I only wish it had been longer. Now, I have ordered Fangirl, so I shall be reading more Rainbow very soon! I’m so excited to see what else she comes up with in the future.
