Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Want More Books From!

Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is authors I want more books from - the ones that I wish would just pop out book after book after book because they're all so bloody fantastic! I think this topic is meant for authors who only release books every once in awhile, but since all I read is modern YA, it's just going to be authors who I want to write a million and one books for my reading pleasure.

In no particular order:

1. J.K. Rowling - I want another series. Maybe not Harry Potter related, but if she created that kind of brillance once, I fully believe she can do it again with a new world and new characters.

2. Alexandra Bracken - She absolutely hooked me with Brightly Woven. I will forever be a devoted fangirl who will pick up any and everything that she puts out. (and p.s. - THE DARKEST MINDS COMES OUT THIS YEAR. *victorious fist in the air*)

3. Sarah Beth Durst - She has pretty much been releasing a book every year, which is amazing, so I hope this continues. I'm one of her BIGGEST fans. Ice, Enchanted Ivy and Drink, Slay, Love are some of my all-time favorites!

4. Jenny Han - I need more contemporary goodness. I would prefer a Conrad/Belly continuation series, but that's just wishful thinking. *sigh* Seriously though, I'm salivating over here for another amazing novel. What up, Jenny?!

5. Carrie Ryan - Her books are part of the pile that inspired me to start blogging because I loved them so much and had so much to say about them. I haven't heard any news for more books in The Forests of Hands and Teeth series, but I'll read just about anything she puts out!

6. Stephenie Meyer - I'm a huge Twilight fangirl. No shame here. I know she's got The Host out already and the rest in the series will most likely be released soon, but she can pop out as many books as she'd like and I'll be first in line at the bookstore to buy them all.

7. Tara Altebrando - I fell in love with Dreamland Social Club last year and put Tara on my author radar. I didn't think she had another book releasing soon, but I just did research and she's got contemporary coming out! She remains on this list though because if her future books are anywhere near as good as Dreamland was, I will get my hands on them!

8. Leah Cypess - I recently read and loved Mistwood. Haven't gotten a copy of Nightspell yet, but I hear it's even more amazing than the first. Leah writes fantasy so enchantingly - I want more!

9. Kristin Cashore - Yes, Bitterblue is releasing soon, but I already know I'll love it. She just needs to keep writing. I need more fantasy, more epic heroins, more kickass action! MOOOORE. Ya hear that, Cashore?

That's all I have! I think I've displayed my craziness enough for one day. Are any of these authors on your list? If not, comment and let me know some authors you're looking forward to more books from!


  1. I have Brightly Woven on my bookshelf. It'll definitely be read by the end of the year!

    I'm going to miss Jenny Han's summer series, but I'm looking forward to her collaborative series with Siobhan Vivian.

    Great list :)

  2. I totally agree with you on some of these authors. But some, like Kristin Cashore, I have yet to read their works. I'm hoping to soon, like with the Graceling series for example, since Bitterblue has been getting so much buzz...

  3. Both Rowling and Meyer will have to come up with some pretty special stuff after all the craziness from HP and Twilight. It would definitely be interesting to see what they could come up with next :)

  4. Love all of them! I agree with Bitterblue and J.K. Rowling all the way!

  5. Steph - OH MY GOSH, I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THAT. I am so excited now! :D Thanks for reminding me!! And definitely read Brightly Woven! It's SO amazing!

    A. Knight - I definitely recommend them! But if I were you, I'd wait until Bitterblue is released. That way you can read them back to back to back with the torturous wait!

    Peppermint - Agreed! I guess that's the downfall of being so high up on a pedestal, but I have faith in them!

  6. Carrie Ryan is working on something new, but she's not talking about it. She promised kissing though. I can't wait! Alexandra Bracken is on my list too! Here is mine http://wp.me/pzUn5-M6

  7. I must be the only blogger around who didn't like Brightly Woven and The Forest of Hands and Teeth!:P

    Totally agree about J.K. Rowling though, I will buy anything and everything with her name on it until the day I die.

  8. Hi! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work?

    I am brand new to running a blog however I do write in my diary every day.

    I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience
    and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any
    kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
