Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Authors I've Never Read

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  I LOVE THEM! ;)

1.  Libba Bray.  She's the first name I saw when I was looking over my shelf.  I've always wanted to read her, but never got around to it.  Beauty Queens is sitting up there, waiting patiently.  I need to get around to reading her!

2.  Lauren DeStefano.  It's such a shame.  I really need to read Wither and also Perfect Ruin.  Both are sitting on my shelf.  READ ALL THE THINGS!

3.  Ned Vizzini.  Ugh.  This one kills me to list.  I have House of Secrets on my shelf, which I purchased like 1 month before the tragic incident.  I want to read all his books now!

4.  Veronica Rossi.  Ooops.  I feel like an awful person when I say this.  I REALLY WANT TO.  I own the first 2 books in the trilogy, and one of them is even signed.  Someday soon, I will get to it.

5.  Orson Scott Card.  No comment.  (Because I am no longer worthy of being called a human being.)

6.  Maggie Stiefvater.  I own three of her books and every day I look at them and go WHY HAVE I NOT READ THIS YET and do the walk of shame.  It's awful.

7.  Garth Nix.  Yikes!  I feel like a worthless fantasy lover when I say this.  It's really truly a sad thing.

8.  Margaret Stohl.  Now, I have no desire to read Beautiful Creatures (just not my thing) but I do have Icons on my shelf.  I received an ARC....a year ago...and still...haven't....freaking.....read it.  *headdesk*

9.  Michael Scott.  I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed to read The Alchemyst.  I'm sorry to everyone who has told me to read them.  I will soon. I WILL I WILL I WILL.

10.  Michelle Moran.  I really really really want to read her historical fictions!  I have Cleopatra's Daughter and Madame Tussaud.  They've been high on my list for about a year now...and apparently that doesn't mean anything because I still haven't read them.  This makes me feel awful, yet again.  Reading often makes me feel awful, I'm discovering.  Or, not reading.  Yeah, that's it.  The not reading is what makes me feel awful.

The end.  *shovels ice cream into mouth for self-pity reasons*


  1. I've only read one of Orson Scott Card's books.
