Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by the folks at the Broke and the Bookish. Each week has a different theme where participants try to come up with ten things to fit the theme.
This week is Top Ten Tuesday Rewind, where we go back to one of the old topics and do that. I picked Ten Popular Authors I’ve not Read Yet.
Murakami is sort of a literary novelist and one of the important figures in postmodern literature. His work includes 1Q84, Kafka on the Shore and Colourless. To be honest, I’m not really interested in his books, but I hope to give them a try. It’s fun to explore different genres and stretch out my comfort zone, plus literary fiction can sometimes be fun.
Westerfeld is the author of the Uglies series and the Leviathan series. I’m interested in both, but I haven’t had the chance to get to him yet. Hoping to get to Uglies sometime soon. Oh, not to forget Afterworlds too.
Erikson is one of the authors of the Malazan series (one of the huge epic fantasy series) and has a lot of fans on r/fantasy. I’ll be boarding the Malazan train soon. I hope I’ll ride it until the end.
Novik is an author of an epic fantasy series. Temeirare spans over nine books. She’s not mentioned quite as much as Erikson on r/fantasy, but her name pops up a lot too. And come on, who could say no to dragons and the Napoleonic Wars.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Robin Hobb and her Realm of the Elderlings series, starting with the Farseer Trilogy. I’m still one book short of the complete first trilogy and will be sure to dive in once I find that elusive missing book. I bought both books in a secondhand sale, so I’m trying to complete it with another secondhand copy.
Yancey is the author of the 5th Wave series. The movie wasn’t really well received, but I still have interest in the book series.
I mean, who doesn’t know who Stephen King is? He’s mostly known as a horror writer, but I’m more interested in the Dark Tower series and On Writing. There’s a Dark Tower film series in the work, staring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey.
Pierce Brown is the author of the Red Rising series. They’re pretty well praised and he’s been nominated for the John W Campbell award. We’ll have to wait until Aug 20 to see if he wins. Either he’ll join the ranks of Stephen Donaldson, John Scalzi and Naomi Novik as winners or he’ll join George RR Martin and Brandon Sanderson as just finalists. Whichever way that goes, he’s in good company. Plus I have the first two books. Hoping to get to him soon.
Jojo Moyes is probably best known for Me Before You. Book blogs and booktubes love it. Film goers loved it. My friends has told me about it, even ones that don’t usually read. That’s got to mean its good right? I definitely want to read it, but it has slowly slipped off my “soon to read” list into my “will read someday” list.
Bardugo is the author of the Grisha Trilogy and the Six of Crows duology. I have the Six of Crows book seating prettily on my shelf waiting for me to get to it.
That’s ten popular authors I want to read soon. What about you? What popular authors do you want to read? Let me know in the comments down below.
