This is probably the one Top Ten Tuesday I am dreading to post my top ten list of. I am sure a lot of you are going to freak out when you see the popular authors that I am listing, but I just never was 1.) interested in their books/series or 2.) it’s not a genre that interests me. As always, Top Ten Tuesdays topics are provided by The Broke and the Bookish. So, here is my top ten list and again I apologize for the authors who I am about to type…
Top Ten Popular Authors I’ve Never Read
1.) J.K. Rowling – Yep, you read that right. I have never, ever read a Harry Potter book before. I know it is a popular series and no offense to the fans, but it is just not something that ever interested me.
2.) Veronica Roth – I have not yet read Divergent, but I do have the book on my shelf. Hopefully I will read it before I go see the movie.
3.) Lemony Snicket – Not as popular as they were back when I was in middle school, but I have never read any of The Series of Unfortunate Event books.
4.) Cassandra Clare – Once again, I know this series has a big fan base, so no offense but just not interested. (The Mortal Instruments series)
5.) James Patterson – I do however want to check out his new YA mystery novels, Confessions: The Private School Murders and Confessions of A Murder Suspect.
6.) Rainbow Rowell – Surprisingly I have not read Eleanor & Park or Fangirl. They are both listed as the books of the month in upcoming months for the book club I am in.
7.) Marissa Meyer – I feel like The Lunar Chronicles came out of no where. I had never heard of the books before and then all of a sudden BAM! I’m reading reviews for them online, they’re in the top sellers on Amazon, and I’m seeing them even at places like Target and Walmart. Although I’m not sure if I will read this series or not.
8.) Ellen Hopkins – All of her books sound good and I have heard a ton of praise for them and have read a lot of good reviews, but I can’t get past her style of writing. I like paragraphs and I can’t get into the book unless there are paragraphs with clear details, explanations, ect.
9.) Richelle Mead – Not entirely sure how popular The Vampire Academy series is right now, but I am sure it is going to have a large fan base since the movie has been released. I’m not entirely sure if this is a series I want to read yet or not.
10.) James Dashner – The Maze Runner series is one that I do plan on reading, but because I have so many other books to get through first I’m not sure when I’ll get to begin reading them.
Well there you go, my top ten list of popular authors who I have never read. Some of you probably expected to see a few of these authors on my list, while others are probably still stuck on the first one wondering how I could have never read a Harry Potter novel. I almost guarantee that some of the top most listed authors for this week are going to be John Green, Suzanne Collins, Sara Shepard, and J.K. Rowling (because I know I am not the only one posting this week who hasn’t read one of her books).
I’m going to be on the lookout for your TTT posts this week because I am interested in seeing what popular authors you haven’t read. If you want you can even post the link to your list in a comment. 🙂
