Top Ten Tuesday : Authors I Haven’t Read, But Want To


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is:

Authors I Haven’t Read (yet), But Want To

Blake Crouch – just about every blogger I know and respect loves this author. I have at least one of his books on kindle already, maybe two:

James S A Corey – I’ve been wanting to read the Expanse series for ages and keep promising myself I will do so – soon. I think this now goes up to Book 9 and is still receiving much love so a series with great strength.

Simone St James.  I bought The Sun Down Motel after seeing a few glowing reviews and I can’t wait to get to it.


Kimi Cunningham Grant – These Silent Woods is a book I’ve had my eye on for some time. It’s on my wishlist and I will be picking up a copy soon.  It sounds so good.


Genevieve Gornichec – particularly The Witch’s Heart.  Another book that’s firmly on my wishlist.  I love books about Norse mythology so this is right up my alley.


Dan Stout – The Carter Archives by this author look awesome.  Again, they’re on my wishlist, I’m waiting to see if they become available in electronic format.  These look so good.

Connie Willis – I have to say that I’ve been wanting to read Doomsday forever – I mean, seriously – what is wrong with me.  Just read the book already woman. Gah.  Plus a couple of other great looking books.

Stuart Turton.  I have a copy of the Devil and the Dark Water – because, The Devil – and – The Dark Water.

G.S. Denning – the author of the Warlock Holmes series which I love the sound of. Plus I love Sherlock Holmes and tend to enjoy books that spin alternative tales.

Josiah Bancroft for his Books of Babel which by all accounts are fantastic.

    Some great choices, and for once I’ve actually read a few of them 🙂 I have those two Blake Crouch on my TBR too having sped through the Wayward Pines trilogy. The cover of These Silent Woods has me wanting to know more about that story, it’s one I’ve not come across before, and the Warlock Holmes series sounds fun.

    So many of these are on my TBR, like the Expanse, Dark Matter, To Say Nothing of the Dog and Stout series! Sooner or later we will read them!!! 💪

    As a huge Expanse fan, I look forward to your journey through this series and your reviews of the books: I know you will enjoy the ride… 🙂

  4. Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies

    Yes for the Expanse!! I just finished the last book this past week, and I can confirm that the series is excellent from start to finish! I love the Blake Crouch books too, and I do have a bunch of Connie Willis books that I need to get to (and really should have put her on my list this week.) Enjoy!

    I really want to read Senli Ascends as well! Also need to continue with Leviathan Wakes, and read more Blake Crouch!

    My post!

    Senlin Ascends is one that I’m planning on reading this summer!! I hope you get to these.

    My Top Ten!

    I love your picks! I’ve always wanted to read a Blake crouch book (I guess I’m just kinda intimidated because there are so many of them lol). I really enjoyed the sun down motel, hope you do too if you get round to it! Here’s my TTT of the week, it was a quiz on fantasy books, see how many you know! 🙂

  9. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Oh wow, I didn’t know you haven’t read Blake Crouch! Thing is, I think his stories and style are perfect for you! You’ll love his books 🙂
