Top Ten Tuesday #7 – September 16th: Top Authors I NEED To Read More

toptentuesday

The Broke And The Bookish presents us every week a new top ten with a different theme. And this Tuesday’s theme is the Top Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED To Read More. There are quite a few authors I would like to read more books of… Some are authors of series I need to continue. Of others I’ve enjoyed my first experience with their work and would like to read more. They are listed below in no particular order:

  • Leigh Bardugo: I´ve read Shadow And Bone of the The Grisha series and absolutely loved it. I really need to start reading the other two books soon… (I actually own a copy of Siege And Storm, but it is in Spanish and I prefer trying to get the English version first before I start reading… I prefer reading books in the original language they were written in.)
  • James Dashner: I’ve read The Maze Runner, and even though I didn’t enjoy it as much as I would have thought before reading, I still want to read the first of the series. Plus, I already own a copy of book number two and three, so there is no holding back… Except for the fact that my copy of The Scorch Trials is in Spanish, and I prefer reading it in English as I explained above.
  • Sarah J. Maas: I’ve read Throne Of Glass en I enjoyed it. Since the last book just came out, I really need to read book number two and three soon… I have Crown Of Midnight already, but it is in Spanish… (This is getting repititive, I know.)

  • Patrick Rothfuss: I’ve read and loved The Name Of The Wind, and now I want to get my hands on book number two as soon as possible… Although the wait for Rothfuss to finish the third book will probably become unbearable.
  • Ian McEwan: I’ve heard many great things about this author, but I’ve only read Atonement so far. I really need to buy more of his books (like Saturday and Sweet Tooth) soon…
  • Rainbow Rowell: I’ve finally read Eleanor & Park not so long ago, and I really have to check out more of her work! Landline, Fangirl, Attachments… They all sound interesting.

  • Jonathan Safran Foer: I’ve read Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close and liked his writing style… I’m looking forward to read more of his work. (Like Everything Is Illuminated.)
  • Jeannette Walls: I´ve read The Glass Castle and was truly impressed by it. Now I would like to read Half Broke Horses and The Silver Star to continue reading about Jeannette and her family…
  • Lee Childs: I’ve read Killing Floor and even though it’s a bit too Rambo/Die Hard for me, I would like to see how the main character develops.
  • Ismael Beah: I’ve read A Long Way Gone some time ago and it is really an impressive memoir… I would like to read Radiance Of Tomorrow as well.

 

Teaser Tuesdays #12 – September 16th: City Of Bones

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

The book I’m currently reading is City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I’ve been wanting to start reading some of her work for ages now, and I finally came around picking up City of Bones. There are very mixed reviews of this first book of The Mortal Instruments series, and I’m glad I’m finally finding out myself what this book is like.
