Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Had I looked ahead to see what this week's topic was, I probably wouldn't have blogged about the Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read last week. A few of these will be repeats, but most will be newbies because there will always be more books and authors than I could possibly read in a lifetime.

Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read...in no particular order












Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

Diana is one I keep hearing about and think I need to try out one day! Only other one I've read is Veronica Roth and I loved her books!

Here's my Tuesday post

Have a GREAT day!

I've seen Melody Carlson on a couple of lists, but have never even heard of her before!

Patterson is... I think an acquired taste, perhaps? I read his YA series Maximum Ride - most of it, at least. He breaks books into a million chapters, sometimes putting chapter breaks mid-scene, mid-conversation, which I found very irritating. Unfortunately, his horrid style aside, the story ideas are pretty darn good. I always feel so conflicted when I finish reading one of his books!

Thanks for stopping by, Jessica. I really need to read at least one of Diana's books. I helped promote Outlander for its 20th anniversary and all the reviewers told me I HAD to read it one day.

Chelsea, Melody Carlson is a Christian author. Though I read a fair amount of Christian fiction, I've only sampled a chapter of one of her books. You can read about that one at: http://cherylschristianbookconnection.blogspot.com/2014/02/cfba-dating-dining-and-desperation-by.html

Thanks for stopping by, ladies. Hope you have a great day.

Oh Outlander. I will read you after I watch a couple episodes of the show this summer. So very soon!

And James Patterson...glad to see he is on someone else's list!

Thanks for stoppin' by! Have a great week!

You should start reading Harry Potter, like, yesterday :) Hehe. You can't go wrong with that series. I was contemplating on whether to include Diana Gabaldon but she's definitely in my radar of authors to read.

Thank you for stopping by My TTT post :)

Outlander is a really great book. It is a great combo of historical fiction and romance.

Hey there, thanks for dropping by my TTT post!

If you ask me, not reading the Divergent series isn't a big loss but you HAVE to go through the Harry Potter series. One of the best YA series ever. Heck, one of the best series ever, period.

Cheryl said...

Pamela, that's what everyone says about Outlander, so I need to be sure to make time for at least that first book.

The greatgabsby, I don't think Divergent is really my thing. My daughter, however, is so into the series that she's bugging me to get tickets to the movie already. :) I really would like to tackle the HP series, because of the impact it made.

Thanks for the comments.
