Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Authors I’ve Never Read

Hello everyone! Welcome back to BookTasty!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and Bookish) theme is Popular Authors I’ve Never Read. I know what’s wrong with me?!  All the authors on my list today are incredibly popular YA authors that I, for one reason or another, have just yet managed to read. What is really pathetic is that I even own books by some of these authors and still haven’t read them! It’s really no big deal, I’ll get to them at some point!

Miss PEregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom RiggsRansom Riggs

Vampire Academy by Richelle MeadRichelle Mead

Alanna by Tamora PierceTamora Pierce

Shadow and Bone by Leigh BardugoLeigh Bardugo

The Iron King by Julie KagawaJulie Kagawa

Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCaffertyMegan McCafferty

Wintergirls by Laurie Halse AndersonLaurie Halse Anderson

Throne of Glass by Sarah J MaasSarah J Mass

The Demon King by Cinda Williams ChimaCinda Williams Chima

Okay, so now that you know all the awesomeness I’m missing out on (they have to be awesome right?! There is a reason they’re popular!) which authors should I make a priority in 2014? Help me out guys! Make your case because without some help I may never get to them!

  1. Definitely Tahereh Mafi first!!! The Shatter Me Trilogy has become one of my all-time faves. Her writing style is unique, and the character development is crazy! Just make sure you read the novellas between each book or you’ll miss important stuff. Hope you like all of the authors that you mentioned :)

  2. I could have written a very similar list, so don’t feel bad! The only author on here that I have read and loved (because there is one I read and only felt so-so about), is Cinda Williams Chima. I randomly picked up The Demon King one day, just because I needed something to read on my lunch break and it was on the shelving cart, and was hooked. Such a clever, engrossing series!

    My list.


  3. Oh my gosh, the top four are on my TTT, too. And most of these authors I’ve not read either. So we are soo in the same corner. I have read Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, though, and you should seriously read it. It’s actually a really quick read, even though it deals with a difficult subject. PLUS, it’s set in my home city :)
