Top Ten Tuesday: Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read




This week’s Top Ten Tuedays topic is: Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read. Back in May I did a Top 5 Wednesday post that was nearly on this topic–I listed the books I HAD read while indicating that I want to read more by those authors. You can view the post HERE.

So, in addition to the authors mention in the May post–JoJo Moyles, Elizabeth Buchan, Joanna Trollope, Fredrik Backman and Helen Rappaport, I’ll add these five the book I most want to read next.


Barbara Kingsolver


I love Barbara Kingsolver’s books except the Lacuna. I’m not much for short stories or essays so I haven’t read those, but I did read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.


Kent Haruf


Our Souls at Night was one of the most moving books ever. But, its the only one of Kent Haruf’s books I’ve read.


Lisa Genova

I couldn’t stop listening to Every Note Played so I’m anxious to listen to or read another of her books.


John Green


John Green just knows how to tell a story. My son did not like Paper Towns at all so I am a little concerned about that one, so I’ll hold off on it till I’m done with all his others.


Liane Moriarty

I’m hooked on this author’s vivid stories! I have several yet to read.

  1. I love Liane Moriarty’s stuff and am anxiously awaiting her new one! Also John Green I hear good things about- I haven’t read him yet although I did see the Paper Towns movie adaptation.

  2. Oh, what I great list! Kent Haruf is so talented. I loved Our Souls at Night, and read Plainsong so long ago. I’ve always meant to go back to that back and read the others. Lisa Genova’s books are all so amazing and moving — I’ve read all three you have listed, and found them all really involving and emotionally powerful reads. (I liked Left Neglected and Inside the O’Briens best, because they taught me about conditions I really knew nothing about previously). I have a stack of unread Liane Moriarty books too — but I”ve really enjoyed the ones I’ve read!

    1. Thanks–I agree on Lisa Genova. I loved Every Note Played for that reason. I’d heard of the condition and vaguely what it did to the person but that was all. The music story was one I understood so the whole thing resonated with me. Thanks for reading.
