I am a simple creature. I see people raving about an author or even just a single book. OR even a single SENTENCE!! FROM THAT BOOK!! I am there. I am looking. And I am very interested.
And then… In a cLaSsIc reader move… They’re still on the tbr… Untouched… unloved.
THAT DOESN’T MEAN I’LL NEVER GET TO THEM! I WILL! soon… eventually
What better way to list them,
and guilt myself into finally reading them, (some of these have been on my physical tbr… for an age) than to join in on today’s Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s topic is “Authors I haven’t read yet but really want to!” And oh boy was it easy to list ten… I could have listed hundreds!
All covers will be linked to their respective Goodreads pages.
I have to admit I have had A Darker Shade of Magic on my physical TBR for so long… so so long. It watches me sleep but yet I am too stupid to heed its warnings of a very painful “I will fall on your face!”
My bed is next to my bookshelves, so they could fall on me anytime they wanted and cause me so much pain, but so far they have been suspiciously merciful? I feel like this should be making me more scared… but yet I’ve been sleeping like a baby these past few weeks?
I saw everyone reading (and loving) Save the Date several summers ago and I was in such a “read every cute romantic contemporary book I see” mood… Soooooo, I bought it… that was the end of its journey…. so far!
I heard these books were stabby. I mean, they’re apparently Vlad the Impaler retellings, and the “Impaler” part sounds super stabby! AND it’s a completed trilogy so I think I’m legally obligated to binge read them!
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this duology and it’s enemies to lovers, it’s stabby, and apparently the writing is excellent! I am so excited just thinking about it. I literally have no reason to not be reading it right now… I want to read it… SO WHY AREN’T I?
J. R. R. Tolkien
I’ve loved the Lord of the Rings movies for as long as I can remember and I’ve wanted to read the books just as long. My family bought me the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit a few Christmas’ agooooo.
I don’t think I need to tell you about my lack of progress here…
Oh, I’ve only added these to every seasonal and otherwise TBR I’ve ever made. Have I read them yet? No. Do I still want to? Absolutely. I hear great things, apparently they’re witty and I love me a witty book!
Apprentice warriors who want to become fully fledged warriors to protect their Kingdom and end up going undercover together to uncover an evil plot? Yes. Yes please, Evelyn Skye knows exactly what I need in my life!
I followed Hafsah Faizal on the Twitter for fun writing and reader content and then my feed was blessed with the beautiful synopsis and cover of her book (when I was still active on Twitter… I’m not anymore.
did someone say toxic waste dump?) and I pre-ordered it immediately. I am still just as excited about this book as I was back then if not moreee!!! I just know this is one is going to be one of those books that I’m going to read in one sitting!
I’ve been seeing These Violent Delights EVERYWHERE and I’m not mad about it. In fact. The exact opposite. I surprisingly haven’t had the book spoiled – for all I see it but from what I do know. It’s my kind of a book!
Ok, so! Sister rivalry (due to tradition – which might make me sad… THEY COULD BE A POWERFUL DUO!!! *sobs*)… but they’re Royal! And there is MAGIC! I am most excited!! THE MOST!
What authors do you really want to read? Which ones have you been meaning to read the longest? Have you read any of the books I’ve read? Scream at me to read them asap!
