Top Ten Tuesday: Why Haven't I Read More of their Books?

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. They created it because they're "particularly fond of lists" and since I also enjoy lists, I've decided to participate in this fun feature.

Have you ever read a book, loved it, and then decided you had to read more books by that author? And then...didn't? That's what this week's Top Ten Tuesday is all about. In alphabetical order, here are ten authors whose book I read and now find that I need to read more of. Note: it was completely unintentional that the first three on the list ended up being Canadian authors! Links lead to Goodreads or review.

Angie Abdou
I adored The Bone Cage. The writing and the story were fantastic and I want to see what Abdou's other work is like.

Joseph Boyden
I couldn't stop thinking about The Orenda after I finished it and I've heard that Boyden's other works are just as good.

Terry Fallis
I recently read my first Fallis book, No Relation, and enjoyed it. The boyfriend has read all of Fallis' others though and tells me he likes the older books better. I liked the humour so I imagine I'll love the other books even more.

Katie Fforde
I freaking loved Wedding Season and I still haven't read any more of Fforde's books. Silly because I really do love British chick lit.

Michele Gorman
Bella Summer Takes a Chance was so much fun and so enjoyable so I'm amazed that I haven't read more of her books yet.

Jenny Han
I was a Jenny Han virgin before reading To All the Boys I've Loved Before, despite owning the whole Summer series. I can't wait to read more of Han's work!

Sarah Jio
Yeah...I know. I've only read one of Jio's novels! I loved loved loved Goodnight June so I cannot wait to read the rest of her books.

Morgan Matson
I devoured Since You've Been Gone this past summer and Matson will now be my go to author when I need a good summer book. (Since I've read all of Sarah Dessen's. Multiple times.)

Ali McNamara
McNamara is another British chick lit author and I really enjoyed From Notting Hill with Love...Actually. There are more in that series so there's plenty more McNamara to love! 

Ali Novak
I really liked My Life with the Walter Boys and am really looking forward to reading other books from this young author. Particularly My Life as a Walter Boy!

Bonus: Two Cheater Entries

Gayle Forman
Technically I've read two Forman novels, Just One Day and Just One Year, but they're kind of the same, right? I mean, they're not, but they take place during the same time period so it's sort of the same. So I really need to read her others. Like, need to.

Erin Morgenstern
This is a cheat entry because she only has one book published and there are no upcoming titles listed on Goodreads. But The Night Circus was so freaking amazing that I cannot wait to see what she writes next.


  1. Love your list - we share a lot of the same names! So many great authors, so little time.

  2. Great list! Sarah Dessen would be on mine haha! And so true about Erin Morgenstern! I wonder if she'll be writing anything else soon!

  3. I need to just start reading most of these! Since You've Been Gone and Night Circus and To All The Boys are books I seriously need to read...I've heard such great things about them! Here's my TTT!


Thanks for stopping by Books Etc.!
