Top Ten Tuesday #43 - Popular Authors I've Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is -

Top Ten Popular (YA) Authors I've Never Read

I thought this would be easier than it was! I'm always seeing books/authors on Goodreads/Twitter/blogs and wondering why I haven't read a single book by them yet everyone else is a superfan. Even worse is the fact that I have books by all of these authors on my wishlist too, I think I might even own the first Brigid Kemmerer book and I know I own the first two Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta... I also own the first Tahereh Mafi book, I'm starting to sense a trend here. Here's my mini list, I may well add to it later as my mind is blank right now!

Brigid Kemmerer

Kasie West

Stephanie Perkins

Jennifer L Armentrout

Abbi Glines

Elizabeth Wein
Melina Marchetta
Tahereh Mafi


  1. AH, I have not read any of these either! I heard so much about West, Perkins and Armentrout, I may get on those books soon.
    Happy reading!

  2. I haven't read a bunch of these either. >_< This was a super cool prompt this week, though, eh? I mean, I THOUGHT I was pretty up-to-date. At least having had tried most of them for one book. But, hehe, nope. I'm pretty far behind. I do love Elizabeth Wein and Melina Marchetta, but both have a bit of slow starts to their books. Tahereh Mafi is worth trying, but I wasn't such a Shatter Me fan. (I quietly fangirled. Quietly.)
    My TTT!

  3. Kasie West is one of my favourite writers. I hope you get to read her books!

  4. There are lots of these that I still need to read too! Oops. Just wish there was more time :).
    Great list!

  5. Stephanie Perkins is also on my list

    Here's my TTT

  6. Great list, I cant believe so many people haven't read Stephanie Perkins. She's really good, and if you find yourself stuck for something to read I would highly recommend you pick something of hers up, unless of course you don't like contemporary haha

    My TTT

  7. Armentrout made my list, too. And Pivot Point has been on my kindle forever! Great list! Now following you via Bloglovin' and GFC. :D So many authors, so little time. *Sigh* :D
    My TTT

  8. I just want to advocate for Anna Perkins. I really was resistant to reading Anna and the French Kiss, I just didn't think it was my thing. I ended up really loving it though. I haven't read Abbi Glines either but I have heard amazing things about the Vincent Boys.

  9. Love both the Brigid Kemmerer and JLA books :) I hope you get to those soon. And I really wan to read Pivot Point! Thanks for stopping by :)

  10. I haven't read most of these either, so I guess we'll just have to start together, right? ;) Although, I have read Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me trilogy and I LOVED it, and Elizabeth Wein's Code Name Verity was just absolutely heart-breaking and beautiful! Anyway...I can't wait to see what you think of all these lovely books! :D Thanks for sharing and great choices!

  11. I need to read Mafi's books too!

  12. Only ever read Perkins but you MUST read Anna and the French Kiss! I'm not too keen on reading Lola but am EXCITED and awaiting Isla! Come on 2014! Faster faster!
