Top Ten Tuesday #65 - Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

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

Top Ten Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

This one was difficult. I'm one of those readers who, when they discover a new author they love, binge read just about everything they've written. Quite a few of these authors are ones who had only written one book at the time so I'm desperate to get my hands on their next one!

Andrew Smith
I read Winger on Simon & Schuster's site PulseIt and ended up loving it. His book, The Marbury Lens, has actually been on my wishlist for quite some time and I've heard a lot about his new book, Grasshopper Jungle. Will definitely be reading more.

Karen Foxlee
Karen is an Australian author and I picked up The Midnight Dress because I liked the cover. I seem to have a thing for choosing books that are going to burrow under my skin, loved it! Can't wait to read A Most Magical Girl, due out in 2016.

e. lockhart
I think just about everybody read We Were Liars this year! I was lucky enough to win an ARC and I devoured it. One of my favorite books this year I will definitely be reading something else by Ms Lockhart.

Louisa Reid
I've read Black Heart Blue twice, it's broken my heart both times and and I'm impatiently waiting for Lies Like Love to come in at my library.

Emma Haughton
Another of my favorite books this year! I seem to be enjoying mystery and thriller books more this year than my usual staple of fantasy... Can't wait to read Better Left Buried, out next year!

Alex Bell
I have owned Jasmyn and The Ninth Gate for a while but have only just got round to reading Jasmyn this year. I could kick myself! Fairy tales, murder & mystery equal my perfect book. Can't wait for Frozen Charlotte, her YA effort, coming out in January 2015.

Jonathan Auxier
 I absolutely adored Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, it's almost the perfect MG book. I have his next book, The Night Gardener, to read but I can't bring myself to start it in case it's not as good as Peter Nimble...

Liliana Bodoc
I don't know how I came across Days of the Deer but it turned out to be one the few fantasy novels I've really enjoyed this year. It's written by Argentinian Liliana Bodoc, translated and published by Corvus but unfortunately it doesn't look like a translation of the next book in the trilogy is coming any time soon and my Spanish is way too rusty to even attempt the original!

Emma Carroll
Loved this historical mystery with ghosts so much I bought a copy after I had to return the library copy! Emma's next book, The Girl Who Walked On Air, is about the circus!!! Patiently waiting for my turn in the reservation queue...

Nigel McDowell
A really good (and quite creepy) children's fantasy book, this is another one that I've bought a copy after borrowing from the library. Next up is The Black North, a book twins, witches and a magical jackdaw!


  1. I'm the opposite from you; I read a good author and my tummy is full. If only there were more time.

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday!

  2. Great list! I'll definitely have to check out most of these The only one I've read is Andrew Smith - I read his Marbury Lens duo, and I'm interested in reading more books by him.

  3. These look really great! I'm super interested about Tall Tales! My list seems boring compared to yours.

  4. I haven't read most of these, but I just added a couple to my TBR. They seem like good ones :)

  5. I still haven't read We Were Liars..... I'm hoping to soon :)

  6. A lot of these are new to me authors! I LOVED Winger and We Were Liars. Marbury Lens was my next favorite of Andrew Smith's. I am glad I read Grasshopper Jungle because of all the hype, but it was not a favorite. It's so weird. We Were Liars is so different from E. Lockhart's other books. The Ruby Oliver series is cute and I really liked Frankie Landau-Banks, but We Were Liars is a masterpiece compared to her other works. Thanks for sharing! ~Megan

  7. Days of the deer has been on my shelf for some months now but I still haven't had the time to read it. I'm really curious about it. I'm glad you liked it!

  8. I love your list. There are so many authors and books on here I've never heard of.

  9. I haven't read any of these authors before, but Winger is on my tbr list

  10. I have been meaning to read Andrew forever and I totally need more Lockhart in my life!

  11. Great list! Frost Hollow Hall sounds very interesting, adding to my TBR!

  12. I ALMOST added E. Lockhart, but I looked at the other books and kinda thought "Ehhh..." But I am more interested in her work, even though she didn't make my list.
