Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Authors I've Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme held by The Broke and the Bookish.

This weeks topic is:

Ten Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read
This list was actually a little hard to come up with this week. I like to think I've read a lot of the modern popular authors. Classic well loved authors on the other hand, there's a lot of them I haven't read. So I guess my list is a mix up of them all. Well really popular authors I think I should have read already.

10. Michael Grant: I do own the whole Gone series and Eve and Adam....sooooo...#bookishproblems
9. Charles Dickens: As much as I don't do classics, I actually think I'd enjoy his work. One day...
8. Phillipa Gregory: Queen of historical fantasy. Both I adore. Why I haven't? Who knows!
7. Andrea Cremer: Nightshade has been on shelves for years. There's no excuse.
6. Abbi Glines: I'm so into NA but I've yet to read one of the queens of the genre. I really need to get on this.
5. Charlotte Bronte/Emily Bronte: More classics I feel I should read. But don't really care to.
4. Tamora Pierce: I feel ashamed that I never read the Alanna series as a kid. But I just bought my first book of hers and I will read it soon.
3. Jane Austen: I don't like classics. I've tried to read P&P before and that was a fail. But I will finish one of her books one day. I must!
2. Brandon Sanderson: He's the king of fantasy and fantasy is my main jam. I have five of his books staring at my daily. I don't have a reason why this hasn't happened yet.
1. George R.R. Martin: (I haven't watch the show yet either) What it comes down to is, I'm scared to start this series. Not because of size or length. But because I don't want to start it, fall in love(I know I will) and he's gone before he's done writing the last book. You know you think about this too.

Let me know your authors or hook up your TTT below.

Happy reading!



  1. I've read about 3 Phillipa Gregory books and really liked them. :)

  2. Oh goodness, I haven't read most of those, either! xD Well, I read one book by Charles Dickens and I've read some of George R.R. Martin, though I never managed to finish his first book. I liked it, I just didn't have much time...

  3. I recommend Philippa Gregory. I think she's great! :-)

  4. Off this list I only read Martin and I LOVE him. He's cruel but absolutely amazing and I want next book so bad!
    I hope you get to read these soon!
    Happy reading!

  5. YAY! Happy to see I am not the only one who hasn't read Jane Austen :)

  6. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book! You have got to read it! :)

  7. I haven't read any of these authors either, so many authors, so little time!

  8. I think I only read Michael Grant from this list which was okay. His Eve & Adam book was good but I don't think it was my favorite. Thanks for stopping by my post :)

  9. Like you, I have not read many classic authors. Not my thing very often. I still want to try one day but no real drive to do so. Here’s my TTT .
