Today’s Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and the Bookish is Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From but NEED to Read More. I’ve listed the authors, as well as the one book I’ve already read. Oh, and mine goes to eleven. 😉
Richard and Florence Atwater – Mr. Popper’s Penguins is one of my children’s favorite books. Sadly, the Atwaters only wrote one book. 😦
Robin Benway – Also Known As was a cute series opener. I’m waiting for the release of the 3rd book before continuing because I’ve heard the 2nd book ends in a cliffhanger.
Jasper Fforde – The Eyre Affair is just my cup of tea! I want to read everything Fforde has written!
Lauren Graham – Someday, Someday, Maybe was such a fun book! Graham NEEDS to write more!
Matt Haig – The Humans is an oddly genre busting read. It intrigued me enough to want to read more from Haig.
P. D. James – Death Comes to Pemberley was not as charming as Pride and Prejudice (is anything?) but it was a fun mystery. I need to read James’ Adam Dalgliesh books.
Garth Nix – Sabriel was a darkly atmospheric fantasy read. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series! (Ha – I really couldn’t wait – I’m currently reading Lirael)
Paul Peabody – Blackberry Hollow is a charming children’s book, in the vein of Winnie-the-Pooh or The Wind in the Willows. Why, oh why, hasn’t Mr. Peabody written anything else in the past 20 years?
Rainbow Rowell – Attachments was such a different book for me! I loved it but I’m a little scared to read Rowell’s other books – what if I don’t like them?
Robin Sloan – Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore is a quirky book that surprised me. I’m planning to re-read it soon and I’d love to read more from Sloan!
Jo Walton – Tooth and Claw was SO good! I’m going to try Walton’s Small Change series next.
Do you have an especially fond memory of a book you were required to read? Did you suffer through a horrible reading assignment? Join me and my co-host, Maricel at My Closet Catalogue, as we express our delight and displeasure over Mandatory High School Reads on Thoughtful Third Thursday!
