There are so many books I have enjoyed, but haven’t read any more works by the author. I really should read the books on this list.
Top 10 Tuesday was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish, but as of January has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. If you’re interested in taking part click here.
1) Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows – I finished the Grisha trilogy this year and now I’m looking forward to diving into another of Bardugo’s series.
2) Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince and others – I feel very behind on Clare’s books. I still haven’t finished the Infernal Devices series and she keeps bringing out more and more novels.
3) Patricia McKillip, many, many books – one of my favourite novels is Ombria in Shadow. I’ve read a few of McKillip’s other books but there are still many on my shelf I have yet to read.
4) Chris Wooding, Silver – The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray is one of my favourites. I also enjoyed Poison and Storm Thief, but have yet to read Silver.
5) Jay Asher, The Future of Us – Thirteen Reasons Why is another favourite of mine, but I’ve never read any of Asher’s other books.
6) J. R. R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion – I’ve heard this is a little more heavy-going than The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, so I haven’t got round to reading it yet.
7) Lauren Oliver, Ringer – I’m hoping the sequel to Replica will be as good as the first in the series.
8) Gayle Forman, Where She Went – Having only read one of Gayle Forman’s books – If I Stay – which I absolutely loved, I really should have read more books by her. Top of my list would be the sequel to If I Stay, but I’d like to read other books by her too.
9) Ashley Maker, Seer – Under the Trees is a great book and I’ve had Seer on my Kindle for a little while now. I really need to get round to reading it!
10) Thomas Hardy – Tess of the D’Urbervilles is one of my favourite classics but I have yet to read any of his other novels.

I’ve decided I probably won’t get around to every book my favorite authors have written. Maybe that’s okay?
Yes, true! There are so many books out there, and so many different authors to discover.
I’ve similarly been trying to catch up with all of Cassandra Clare’s books, although I have just finished the Infernal Devices series, and I really enjoyed them all so I hope you do too 🙂
I enjoyed the first Infernal Devices book so looking forward to reading the rest :)
I looove Six of Crows, so hopefully when you get to that you enjoy it. I know how you feel about Clare’s release schedule. Don’t get me wrong, totally stoked to read more by her and am here for new releases but I can see why it would get overwhelming! I love The Infernal Devices–I think it’s my favourite series by her, so I may be biased about it but I think you’ll love the two books you’ve left to read!
I love Clare’s books, so I will keep reading them, her schedule is pretty intense! I hope so, I loved the first Infernal Devices book.
All new titles for me to explore.
Here’s a link to my TTT post for this week:
Oooh, you should check them out. Will take a look at your post. :)
I binge-read the first few books in the TMI series, but never continued with it even though I mostly enjoyed the books. Not sure why. I guess I was a little Shadowhunter’d out? Too much of a good thing maybe.
I hope you get around to reading all these and that they’re AWESOME!
I had a gap where I stopped reading TMI and then picked them back up again and loved them. I think you can read a bit too much of something though!
I’ve read Six of Crows, but haven’t finished the Grisha trilogy yet.

It’s good! Worth a read.
I’m trying to get them done before King of Scars comes out :)
Ah yes, excited for that coming out!
I’ve been working on Cassandra Clare’s books this year. 4/6 done with The Mortal Instruments. Then I’ll have to move onto the others. I’ve only read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit from Tolkein, and I still have to read Leigh Bardugo. I want to start with her first books and then work forward.
Leigh Bardugo is worth the read. Hope you enjoy the rest of the Mortal Instruments!
I gave up on Cassandra Clare after I found out that it’s recommended that readers read the books out of order of their publishing dates – too stressful! LOL!
Haha yes I’ve read them in the ‘wrong’ order I think but I can’t be bothered worrying about it!
