Top Ten Tuesday #29: Popular Authors I’ve Never Read March 4, 2014


Each week, the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish think up a fun theme for the week and participating bloggers around the net join in. The theme for this week is:

Top Ten Popular Authors I’ve Never Read

Veronica Roth (Divergent trilogy) – I started Divergent yesterday, but I’ve never COMPLETED anything by Veronica (yet).

Victoria Schwab (The Archived series, Vicious) – I won a copy of The Archived a few weeks ago and all of her books have been on my TBR for ages, I just haven’t gotten to them yet!

Neil Gaiman (whoa… too many to list) I’ve meant to start so many of his books it’s kinda ridiculous.

Orson Scott Card (Ender’s series and others) Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m one of THOSE book nerds who has never touched Ender’s Game other than ordering a copy when the movie was in theatres.

Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me trilogy) I KNOW, I KNOW. Shatter Me has been promoted to my immediate TBR pile so… SOON.

Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey books) – I started one and was too intrigued by Jodi Meadow’s book at the time. I started both by reading a few chapters to see which I would read first. Jodi’s won out and I never made it back to Julie. I will remedy this!

Elizabeth Wein (Code Name Verity & Rose Under Fire, others) I ordered Code Name Verity at the end of last summer, but still haven’t read it. I know, shame on me.

John Green (ALL the feels apparently) I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever pick up any of his works. Just not something I normally read, but maybe.

Cynthia Hand (Unearthly trilogy) I have the entire trilogy (signed) on my shelves and I still haven’t touched them. I really need to though!

Gayle Forman (If I Stay, etc) I’ve heard so many great things about her books, but I just haven’t gotten to them. Hopefully one day!

What popular authors have slipped your list so far? Feel free to leave your link, I’d love to read your lists! (: Happy Tuesday!

  1. I have so many books form the authors on your list and I’ve read 1 I think. I read The fault in our stars & I have all of John Greens books. I also have the Iron Fae series, If I stay, Shatter Me, and Divergent and I haven’t read any of them. I also have them in their glorious original covers since I bought them freakin last year before everything changed. Ugh!
    It’s so sad that I have a gazillion books I haven’t read. At least im not the only one. I feel so much better. This post is literally the story of my life the only difference is that my list is never ending. Haha.

      Every time I win or buy books my hubby gives me this “Don’t you have enough books?” look. The answer of course is NEVER! haha. I’m getting ready to finish Allegiant, so there’s ONE author I can mark off this list! (: Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Neil Gaiman made my list too. I hope you enjoy the Divergent series — I’m looking forward to seeing the movie later this month! I just read the first two Shatter Me books by Tahereh Mafi last month and thought they were decent. Not the best ever, but they were quick, easy page-turners and the writing was unique.

      I’m excited about the movie too! I’m not so thrilled with Allegiant. /: But hey! At least I get to knock one author off this list, right? haha. Thanks for stopping by! (:
