Top Ten Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here.

I love this topic! Generally, I like any topic that will prioritize my TBR list though. Anyway, I put one limitation on myself: I didn’t choose any authors who only have one book out so far. So all of these have at least 2 books that have been released.

Laini Taylor
1. Laini Taylor, author of Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Laini Taylor is my constant shame when it comes to Top Ten Tuesday lists. One of these days I’ll actually make time for her chunky but beautiful books. Seriously, her writing style is like word porn.

Libba Bray
2. Libba Bray, author of The Diviners
Another author who just writes SO BEAUTIFULLY. The Diviners was stunning. I really want to read more of her, but I’m not sure where to start. Suggestions?

Victoria Schwab
3. Victoria Schwab, author of The Archived
Schwab amazed me in The Archived with the creativity of her world building and how engaging the plot was. AND THAT SHIP. So I’m definitely hoping to read The Unbound and Vicious soon.

Leila Sales
4. Leila Sales, author of This Song Will Save Your Life
TSWSYL basically perfectly described me in high school and made me feel SO MANY THINGS. I really want to read more from Sales after that, and Kara got me Past Perfect for my birthday, so hopefully I’ll squeeze that in soon!

Katherine Longshore
5. Katherine Longshore, author of Gilt
I’m loving historical fiction, and Longshore’s refreshing YA take on the Tudor era was really impressive. Gilt brought the feels. Seriously. I already have Tarnish on my shelf, so I’m hoping to read it soon.

Marie Rutkoski
6. Marie Rutkoski, author of The Winner’s Curse
Pretty sure most people agree that The Winner’s Curse was really awesome. Rutkoski is a master storyteller – so I’m looking forward to reading The Shadow Society, which is already on my shelf, and I might look into her middle grade books as well. They sound super fun.

Paula Stokes
7. Paula Stokes, author of The Art of Lainey
LAINEY LAINEY LAINEY. Obviously, I freaking love that book. So yeah. Paula’s coming out with more books under her own name next year, but in the meantime, I’m hoping to check out the Secrets of the Eternal Rose series, under her pseudonym Fiona Paul. I’m expecting feels.

Lauren Miller
8. Lauren Miller, author of Parallel
Wow, I keep mentioning Parallel lately. *cough* Anyway, I love Miller’s “sci-chique” ideas, so I really want to read Free to Fall soon. Apps determining your optimal life? Hell yes, awesome concept.

Rachel Harris
9. Rachel Harris, author of The Fine Art of Pretending
I loved The Fine Art of Pretending, which is coming out later this month. Harris has a great light, fluffy, romantic tone – and her My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series involves time travel! I really want to read them. It’s a shame the covers are so dreadful.

RJ Anderson
10. R.J. Anderson, author of Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet was so creative and surprising! I can’t believe I still haven’t read the sequel or the other books by Anderson. I need to get a move on.

That’s my list! Who made yours?

  1. You HAVE to read more of Laini Taylor’s work. Her writing is so beautiful in the later Daughter of Smoke and Bone books. Leila Sales made my list too seeing as This Song was amazing. I definitely need to read more of her books.

  2. We have a couple authors in common on our lists! I’ve read The Art of Lainey and absolutely loved it.☺ I haven’t read The Fine Art of Pretending (I’m glad you loved that one), but I have read MSSSC.

    I haven’t read The Diviners, but the Gemma Doyle trilogy is one of my favorites! I suggest starting there when you continue reading her books.

  3. Interesting Top Ten! I haven’t read anything by all of them but Libbra Bray.
    I’m looking forward to read the books by Laini Taylor and Marie Rutkoski! ;D

  4. Yes, Laini Taylor is a good one to put on your list 🙂 You also should check out Victoria Schwab – The near witch. It was my first (and still only) book by her and I liked it. This song will save your life <3 I need to read Tarnish soon too and I need to check out more books by Marie Rutkoski, The winner's curse blew me away.

  5. Oh yes, you need to read more Laini Taylor books, I adore the whole trilogy!!
    I also have The Shadow Society to read from Marie Rutkoski cause I adooooore The Winner’s Curse too!!
    And as for Paula Stokes, I also need to read her pen name’s books, because I adore Paula and will read anything and everything she writes!!

  6. Tarnish is amazing! It’s rare to make Anne Boleyn’s story feel fresh but Katherine Longshore does. I need to read more Victoria Schwab too, I’ve had The Unbound on my shelf since it came out.

    My list is slightly different; I seem to be stockpiling the last books in a number of trilogies I love! Brazen, Sisters’ Fate, Something Strange and Deadly, Isla and the Happily Ever After. I think I’m just sad for them to end so I keep putting it off!

  7. I also didn’t include authors that only have one book out. That seemed to defeat the purpose of the list. Not that there is anything wrong with people including those authors. 🙂

    I still haven’t read Laini Taylor! Totally crazy, I know. I have read one book by Leila Sales – Past Perfect. But everyone raves about This Song Will Save Your Life.

  8. Great list, practically all of them are on my TBR, they seem to be really popular and I’ve only heard good things! I just wish I could get to them sooner!

  9. My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century is totally cute, and I like how corny the covers are 😉
    As for Libba Bray’s books, I’d recommend starting with A Great and Terrible Beauty, that series was just plain awesome!
    Also: The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab was AMAZING, you should put it on your list as well 😀

    Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle Trilogy. It’s an amazing series (one of my favourites actually) and I’m currently re-reading it. It’s… I can’t even explain how good it is
