Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Popular Authors I’ve Never Read


This week, The Broke and the Bookish is asking for the Top Ten Popular Authors I’ve Never Read. I looked at my shelves and saw a lot of popular series that I have all the books in…and haven’t even started yet! I thought this would be so easy…and I was wrong. It turns out I very much go where the hype is and it’s hard to know what authors are “popular” if I missed the hype. Also, I apparently can’t tell if authors are popular outside the world of book blogging.

  1. C.J. Redwine: I keep hearing really great things about this series. I follow C.J. on twitter. I have not read these books.
  2. Sarah J. Maas: Same as above, but I own some of these books!
  3. Marie Lu: Same and same, except I own this whole trilogy and one of the books is signed.
  4. Kody Keplinger: I own a few of her books due to kindle says and bright colors, but I still haven’t read them.
  5. Rick Riordan: I never made it onto the Percy Jackson train because when it first came out I was under the impression that I didn’t like fantasy and Harry Potter was a fluke.
  6. Jenny Han: I hear all these terrific things and have some of her books from kindle sales but ti-i-i-ime is not on our side.
  7. Julie Kagawa: I won the second book in one of her series in a giveaway, so I bought the first one. And there they still sit on my shelf untouched.
  8. Susan Dennard: This is one I’m trying to rectify ASAP, because I really want to start these books. Having the third book for review is at least going to push me to actually read them!
  9. Michelle Hodkin: At this rate, I will be the last person to start the Mara Dyer trilogy while owning all of the books.
  10. Susan Ee: I kind of want to stop everything I’m doing right now and read Angelfall. That is all.

  1. I am totally with you on so many of these. I really want to get to Angelfall ASAP. Same with Throne of Glass. I am sure I would freaking love that book, but for some reason just can’t make myself get it started! I like the Riordan/Percy Jackson series, but I LOVE the follow-up Heroes of Olympus series. To me, reading Percy Jackson is good, but Heroes is GREAT.

    Don’t you just feel so bad when you have signed books that you haven’t started? I have the whole Shatter Me trilogy signed, but haven’t even cracked them open. :(

  2. No one would blame you for stopping everything to read Angelfall. In fact, you might start getting people who insist that’s exactly what you do.
