Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks topic, submitted by Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse, is “Authors I Haven’t Read, But Want To.”
I think everyone and their mother has already read The Poppy War trilogy besides me! Kuang also has a dark academia novel coming out this year that also sounds good!
HIs contemporary books, like History Is All You Left Me, and his contemporary adjacent books, like They Both Die in the End, are definitely on my TBR!
These Violent Delights duology really took the YA book fans by storm, and every time she has a new book announced, I just get more excited to read her!
Lev A.C. Rosen
I’ve been meaning to read Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts), which is a YA contemporary book about a kid who’s blackmailed for running a sex-positive blog. And on the entirely other end of the spectrum, I want to read his 2022 release, Lavender House, which is a historical fiction.
The Green Bone Saga is another beloved adult fantasy series that I need to get to! I’m only hesitant to get to it because, like The Poppy War, it destroys everyone who reads it and it’s very long in comparrison to my normal books.
Ursula K. Le Guin
This author might be the most out of place on this list? She’s definitely the only classic author here. I really want to try out the Earthsea Cycle, which is a series of fantasy books, and I’ve also heard good things about The Lathe of Heaven, a sci-fi novel by her.
Another of the super popular adult fantasy series, I still need to read The Daevabad Trilogy!
Obviously her duology, Empire of Sand and Realm of Ash, is on my Two Be Read in 2022 List, but I also wanna read the Burning Kingdoms trilogy.
Rachel Lynn Solomon
I’ve wanted to read her YA contemporaries, Our Year of Maybe and Today Tonight Tomorrow, and I want to give her debut adult romance, The Ex Talk, a try!
For a while, the only book of hers I was interested in was Far From You, but she released The Girls I’ve Been last year and I an intrigued to this YA bisexual bank heist book.
Have you read from any of these authors before? Which authors are you dying to read from? Let me know in the comments or link your TTT post!
