Top Ten Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More15:30
You know that feeling when you finish an amazing book and you immediately get the urge to go out and read every single one of the author’s other books? It’s the best feeling in the world to find a new author whose books I love, but it’s frustrating when I can’t immediately start reading the rest of their novels. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly link-up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, I’m sharing some of the authors I need to read more than one book from. Sadly, this week I’m only able to list five authors, because generally when I get that urge, I go out and devour all their other books at once, so I don’t have many authors who fit that description.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
It actually took me quite a while to give this book a chance. I borrowed it from the library several times, having heard vague things about it being a good book. It wasn’t until my sister and some blogging friends started recommending it to me however, that I finally got around to reading it. This book is amazing! It’s filled with creepy old pictures and the plot has got awesome elements like time loops in it as well. I definitely want to read the sequel now.
I mention Marissa Meyer most weeks in my Top Ten Tuesday posts, but after I first read Cress, I knew I’d found a new favourite writer. I actually now own her first two books, Cinder and Scarlet, on Kindle, and I’m dying to read them. I just have a massive amount of other books I need to finish up reading before I can get to them. Sigh.
The Seer and the Sword
I first read The Seer and the Sword several years ago. At that point I was totally against any form of romance in books. I’d rather have an adventure thank you very much. This book had the best written romance, as well as an amazing adventure, and magic, and evil family members. It had everything. It’s still one of my favourite books today. I’ve never read any of Victoria Hanley’s other books, but I would love to have the chance to see what else she’s written.
The Knife of Never Letting Go
Patrick Ness is more of a want than a need. I enjoyed reading The Knife of Never Letting Go, though it was quite a strange book and very different to what I was expecting. It got me interested enough in his writing that I would like to try more of his books sometime in the future. I happen to know that my library has the second book in the Chaos Walking series, so I might read that one at some point.
James Scott Bell
Revision and Self-Editing for Publication
James Scott Bell is my current non-fiction read. I’ve been reading through his book about revision and editing to help me with my own editing, and I’ve found his book to be incredibly helpful and inspiring. I’d love to read his book on plot and structure as well. I’m sure that I would learn a lot from that book too.
What authors do you NEED to read more books from? Are you like me and devour all their books at once? Or are you more self-controlled than me?
