Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the image to visit them) who pick a different topic each week. This week the topic is Ten Authors I’ve never read.
For some reason I found this really hard. I’m sure there are loads of popular authors that I’ve never read but most of the ones that came to mind were Chick-Lit so I tried to mix it up a bit.
J.K Rowling: I know this will be the big shocker on this list. Everyone who meets me expects me to love Harry Potter. It is the kind of thing I like, granted, yet I’ve never read them. I’m not really against reading them, but I just feel it’s a bit too late now. That, and I’ve seen a few of the films – which were positively average – and I hate reading books after seeing the films. Maybe one day…
Cecelia Ahern: I’m not averse to Chick-Lit at all, but it’s never my go-to genre. I’ve been told I’d really like Cecelia’s books by a few people though and still haven’t picked any up. I totally secretly love the P.S I Love You film, mainly because of this guy:
Marian Keyes & Jodie Picoult: Again, I’ve heard good things but I’ve never really felt the need to pick up their books!
Gillian Flynn: I’ve had Gone Girl on my TBR pile since it came out. I know, I know, I NEED to read it. I Will, I promise. Soon.
Lee Child & Jo Nesbo: I really love gritty crime/ suspense novels and I like the sound of both of these authors…I just haven’t got round to them yet. One day.
Alexander McCall Smith: I doubt I’ll ever pick up the Detective Agency books for the simple fact that I hate the covers. I know that’s really bad, but they do nothing for me whatsoever and have really put me off.
Phillipa Gregory: I think I would probably like these books but I feel like I’ve missed the boat a bit. When I feel like a bit of Historical Fiction I usually go for the Arthurian Era reads because I’m fascinated by that period, but I should definitely branch out.
Rick Riordan: I love books that take mythology and bring it into a modern setting so I have no doubt that I’d love the Percy Jackson books, but like Harry Potter, I saw the film first. Unlike Harry Potter though, I think I will definitely try and read these at some point.
What would make your list? Feel free to leave your link in the comments!
