Top Ten Authors I've Only Read One Book From But Need to Read More

1. Sarah Beth Durst

I read and loved The Lost earlier this year. It was such a great novel of magical realism. You can read my review HERE. I have a few of her other books on my TBR and I'm scheduled to review her upcoming Chasing Power next month. You can read Kayla's review of Conjured HERE.

2. Sarah Ockler

I listened to and enjoyed The Book of Broken Hearts earlier this year. It was an awesome YA book, especially since it had an Argentinian protagonist and Puerto Rican love interest. I have both Twenty Boy Summer and Bittersweet on my TBR.

3. Victoria Schwab

I read Vicious and really enjoyed it. There was just something a little bit off that kept me from loving it. I have heard great things about her The Archived series, and I bought the first one when it was a Kindle Daily Deal.

4. Mary E. Pearson

I loved Pearson's The Kiss of Deception and can't wait to read the sequel when it comes out next year. You can read my review HERE and Kayla's review HERE. I have her Jenna Fox Chronicles on my TBR as well.

5. C.E. Murphy

I read and really liked the first of Murphy's Walker Papers series. The library didn't have the rest of the series, but I bought the next three on Amazon when it was a Kindle Daily Deal.

6. Seanan McGuire

I read McGuire's Discount Armageddon. It was okay, but I want to try another series by her instead of continuing on in this one. I have Rosemary and Rue checked out from the library, and her new Ghost Stories series starting with Sparrow Hill Road looks pretty good as well.

7. John Green

I read and liked Looking for Alaska. I need to pick up another of his books, but I know I'll never read The Fault in Our Stars because it has cancer, and it's sad.

8. Elizabeth Wein

I LOVED Code Name Verity, but it was so heart-wrenching that I haven't picked up anything else. I need to read the sequel Rose Under Fire, and her newest coming out in 2015, Black Dove, White Raven.

9. Kelly Gay

The Better Part of Darkness was a great start to an Urban Fantasy series. Sadly, the library doesn't have the rest of the series, and I have SO many books on my TBR that I can't justify buying the rest of the series right now. Some day...

10. Justina Chen

North of Beautiful was such a great coming of age story with a bit of body-image thrown in. Chen released A Blind Spot for Boys last month, and I also have several of her other books on my TBR.

From Which Authors Do You Need to Read Another Book?


  1. I definitely should check out Sarah Ockler's books. I really liked #scandal. John Green is also on my list, along with Rebekah Crane (author of Aspen), plus many others. :D Heard Victoria Schwabs books are amazing.

    1. I hadn't hear of Rebekah Crane before, but Aspen definitely looks like something I would want to read. Thanks for the recommendation! And thanks for stopping by!

  2. I recommend Girl Overboard by Justina Chen. It was an amazing book. And The Miles Between by Mary E. Pearson is also great.

    1. Girl Overboard is already on my TBR (maybe one day I'll shrink that thing). I hadn't seen Pearson's The Miles Between but it is going on the TBR as well! Now I have a starting point on some of these authors. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I've been meaning to check out Victoria Schwab's works, they really sound very interesting (plus she tweets some very interesting stuff!) xD

    My TTT

  4. Victoria Schwab is also on my list, but the books are reversed: I've read The Archived and really want Vicious!! John Green is great, I was reluctant to read him for a while because he's so hyped, but the hype really is deserved in his case. I'll not read the Fault in Our Stars for the same reason, but I can really recommend Papertowns!
    I haven't read The Better Part of Darkness, but I've read the first two books of the YA series Kelly Gay writes as Kelly Keaton and those were fantastic! I really need to read more of hers.

    Awesome list :)
    My TTT

    1. I didn't know that Kelly Gay and Kelly Keaton were the same person! I liked her first book Darkness Becomes her, and I really need to read the last two in that series. Now I want to continue in her Charlie Madigan series even more!
