Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish that features a new topic each week where we have to put down our top ten of it.
Today's Question/Topic is:
Top Ten Popular Authors I Have Never Read
Books Include: The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, I mean the list goes on.
I feel like everyone in the bookish world has read at list one of this man's books. The reason why I haven't is b/c I tend to shy away from contemporary/realistic fiction, which all of his books seem to be. One day, Mr. Green, One day......
Author: Rainbow Rowell
Same reason behind John Green is the same with Ms. Rowell. She also writes contemporary/realistic fiction which, hopefully, one day I will read. In fact, I just check her book, Fangirl, out from the library on Sunday, so there
Soon Ms. Rowell you will be off this list, very soon :)
Author: Marissa Meyer
Books Include: The, "Oh so Popular", Lunar Chronicles
I feel like the only person in the entire bookish world that has not read this series. What the hell am I waiting for!!! Luckily my slack ass put a hold on book 1, Cinder, at the library. I'm first in line so hopefully I'll be getting my hands on it soon.
I'm hoping I like this series enough to add the books to my bookcase.
Author: Richelle Mead
Why I haven't read her books yet, I don't know. When it really comes down to it, I guess it's because it's about vampires and b/c of the whole Twilight invasion, I haven't really been interested. I've been recommended the VA series but quite a few people, so maybe.....
Author: Veronica Rossi
Books Include: Under the Never Sky Series
Please tell me there are others out there that haven't read this author's books!!! ANYBODY??
I'm always seeing reviews and blogs on the series. I don't even know what it's about. Maybe it's about time I look into it. Maybe......
Author: Stephanie Meyer
Yes! That's right, I haven't read anything by this author. Not that I wasn't interested, it's just the whole "vampire explosion" thing didn't do it for me.
But I do want to read The Host and I bought the book on sale at the library, in great condition for only a buck! WOO HOO!
Author: Jodi Picoult
Haven't read her books but I have seen the movie, My Sister's Keeper, starring Cameron Diaz, which is based on her book. I also own one of her books, Harvesting the Heart, which I got out of the free bin at a bookstore. I just haven't the urge to read her work, possibly because it's in the contemporary/realistic fiction genre, the genre I never read. Man! I really gotta do something about this, LOL!!!
Author: Jane Austen
This is actually an author I'm quite disappointed in myself with. I can not believe I have let life slip without reading a single Jane Austen classic. I also find myself telling white lies, saying that I have read Pride & Prejudice when I have not. But I have seen the movies often enough to know what takes place. It happens to be one of my all time favorite films. Luckily I have three of her books in my bookcase, which I do intend to read. She will not be on this list forever!!
Author: Rick Riordan
I know I missing out...BUT.....I have the complete Percy Jackson series in my bookcase so I know I will be reading it sometime in the future.
I PROMISE MR. RIORDAN!!
Author: Nicholas Sparks
I feel awful for not reading this authors wonderful books because I've seen all the movies that are based on them! I mean... ALL OF THEM! Love them too, so I know the books got to be Incredible, RIGHT?!?!
( He lives in North Carolina and most of his book's settings are there as well, which I find to be AWESOME b/c that's where I live ♥)
All of these Authors I listed I have never read. 98% of them I want to read and I will read, some day, in the future. Until then I'll continue to go with the flow. If I read one of these authors, I sure there will be just another popular author that I have read, that will make this list. It's like a TBR list, a PATBR list :)
Can't wait to browse around and read y'alls Top Ten lists
HAPPY READING Y'ALL!!!
