Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Haven’t Read, But Want To

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Authors I Haven’t Read, But Want To, and I definitely have a bunch of those!

In no particular order, my list includes:

  1. Jess Kidd: I own two of this author’s books, and I’m especially interested in reading Things in Jars, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

2. Jesse Q. Sutanto: The “auntie” books look so cute!

3. Stacey Lee: I have one of her books, and love the sound of at least one more.

4. Mike Chen: I keep picking up Kindle books by this author because they sound so good, yet I haven’t read any of them (yet).

5. Elizabeth Acevedo: I own one of her books, and know there’s another that I need to read as well.

6. Sarah Pinsker: The sci-fi award-winning author’s books sound really intriguing to me.

7. Sarah Moss: Another author where I own one book, and have another on my wishlist.

8. Peng Shepherd: And again — I have the first book below (unread), and I’m wishing for the second.

9. Kate Quinn: I feel so behind when it comes to this author! I have copies of three of her books, and have yet to read a single one.

10. N. K. Jemisen: I’ve been wanting to read both her Broken Earth and Inheritance series, but have never quite found the right time to start.

Have you read books by any of the authors on my list? If so, which do you think I should make a priority? What authors were on your TTT list this week?

Share your links, and I’ll come check out your top 10!

  1. Things in Jars interests me as well. I like to look up Jemisen too, though I remember hesitating over one of her series at some point because of how chunky the books were– I think it was a collected ed.

  2. Mike Chen is an author I’d definitely like to read sometime soon, as is Peng Shepherd and Kate Quinn. so many new authors to read…so little time. Great TTT list. 😀

  3. Elizabeth Acevedo and Sarah Moss are two of my favorites! And I loved Dial A for Aunties, a perfect light read (especially on audio). I’m looking forward to the sequel.

  4. All three of these Kate Quinn books (as well as her newest one, The Diamond Eye) are marvelous! Start with The Alice Network and then go onto The Huntress, and finish with The Rose Code. You will not regret it!

  5. N. K. Jemison could have made my list this week too. I have The City We Became but haven’t read it yet.
    I love the cover for The Cartographers, which also sounds like it could be a great read.

  6. These books ALL sound fantastic but I am particularly intrigued by “A Beginning at the End”(Thank you for sharing!) I love apocalyptic sci-fi or fantasy with a realistic feel (does that mean there is something wrong with me? lol). I think you might like this satirical sci-fi mystery book I just finished called “Meta: Game On” by Xander Black. At first glance, the plot seems similar to Ready Player One, but that really is only a surface level comparison. In the (not too distant) future the world is in disarray. Most people escape to a virtual world called the Cybernet. Everyone is playing “Neverborn” and working their way up in this game is the pinnacle of achievement. The references are fresh, the commentary is topical and the world is believable. With “Meta” becoming a hot topic in our real world, reading this felt like a glimpse into a very possible future. The author clearly has done his homework and writes in a way that had me occasionally white knuckling the book, laughing out loud, or legitimately awed at his use of topical trends woven into his “fantasy” story. At its core, this book is a murder mystery set in a virtual world where two friends need to clear their name after being accused of murdering several high profile gamers (and their avatars). Definitely check this one out (here is the Amazon link if you want to read a few more reviews –
