Hey everyone! Well it’s that time of the weekend, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! It’s a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
Today we’re out the author’s whose books we own the most of. Some of these will not be surprising while other I own more than half a dozen of their books and I still haven’t read a single one!
I am fairly certain if Katherine Arden published her shopping list I would read it and cherish it. Her writing is phenomenal, her stories immersive. I haven’t had the end of a trilogy move so profoundly since the last Harry Potter book. Read her books!
I discovered this author through The Wrath and the Dawn and honestly haven’t picked up much else since. I loved the duology and I own quite a few of her other books
Bray’s books are beasts and because of that they basically have their own shelf. I am actually ashamed I haven’t read any of her books yet. I just stare at The Diviners so certain that I would adore it if I just gave myself a weekend to read it. 2020 will be the year. I need no more nudges. It’s happening.
Chokshi writes with a crisp but lush style that I just adore. Plus her books were my first foray into Indian mythology. Plus her covers are just gorgeous.
My love for Stephen King is largely nostalgic. I remember being 12 and snatching up mass market paperback copies of King’s books (and Dean Koontz). I devoured so fast that my mom frequently suggested I just stand in the store and read it while she grocery shopped. I am a little picker about my reading of King now but he sparked my love of horror novels.
I cannot say enough about Liggett’s stories. She writes the kind of dark stories that I frequently crave in my novels. I believe there is only one book from her Backlist that I haven’t read and I cannot wait to see what’s next.
Heroine was the first novel I ever read by Mindy McGinnis and that was just last year. Since the beginning of my passionate love affair with McGinnis’ books I have discovered some of my favorite reads from her backlist.
I own a lot more VE Schwab than I’ve actually read but I cannot stop thinking about her upcoming release: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. So you know, if any publisher is reading this and wants to make that egalley wish come true, I won’t be upset.
Like Arden, Shusterman’s work is some thing I have only dabbled in. I know his Backlist is extensive but I adored his Arc of Scythe trilogy and Dry- a book that made me profoundly thirsty while I read it. I still have Shusterman’s Unwind series which seems all to pertinent given our present culture and political climate.
As someone who studied Classics are part of their Masters Degree I could not believe that it took me until last year to read the first three books in Tahir’s Ember I’m the Ashes series. They are brutal, intense and immersive and should be on every YA reader’s bookshelf.
