Top Ten Tuesday: Books by my Favourite Author I Still Haven’t Read Yet.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. 

We all have our favourite authors, the ones that are on our auto-buy list knowing that there’s a 90% we’ll love it. However, that does not mean that a few of those books slip right through our fingers. These are the books by my favourite authors that I’ve still not read yet.

1. Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta: My love for Melina Marchetta’s books is not a secret. Her contemporary novels are beautifully moving, and Finnikin of the Rock will forever be one of my favourite fantasy novels. However, I have yet to finish her Lumatere Chronicles, not because I don’t want to, believe me, I do. I don’t actually know why I’ve not finished this series yet, I own the entire set, but I do know that I will get to it one day.

2. Second Chance Summer / Save the Date by Morgan Matson: If you have followed this blog for a while you will surely be tired of seeing Second Chance Summer on my tbr list. Feel free to yell at me because there are no excuses as to why I’ve not read this book yet. I’m hoping to cross at least one of these books off the list by the end of the year though.

3. The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo: I keep going back and forth with this series. I’ve asked around and the general consensus I get is that the series is great if I want to expand my knowledge on the Grishaverse and the power of the Grisha, but it’s also not a necessary read. Maybe the release of King of Scars will have me pick up this series, but for now, it will have to stay on my tbr.

4. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: I have every intention of reading this book, but it probably won’t be this year. As you all know, I have been hit by a terrible reading slump this year and while I have no doubts about how much I’ll love this book, I cannot find it in me to pick it up. It’s a book that requires my full attention because of its complexity. This is a book that is undoubtedly perfect for a rainy day, but it’ll have to wait a little bit longer before I pick it up.

5. Morning Star by Pierce Brown: *hides in shame* I am forever ashamed of myself for not finishing this series. Believe me when I say I love Red Rising and Golden Son, but the expectation of Morning Star made me so nervous, especially with how unpredictable and painful this series had been so far, that I simply didn’t have the guts to read it. It’s been so long since I read the first two books in the series that I feel like I have to start from the beginning again before tackling Morning Star and then its continuation in Iron Gold.

6. Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios: Heather Demetrios has a good reputation for hitting me where it hurts. I’ll Meet You There is my favourite contemporary novel of all time, and Something Real was just as amazing. However, this book promises to take us on an even darker and purposefully uncomfortable journey. Here’s the thing, I have to be in the right mindset before tackling such a book. I know it’s going to be powerful, and it is definitely going to be worth it in the end, but I have to be in the right mindset to read it.

Have you read any of these books?

  1. Second Chance Summer! I can’t WAIT for you to read this book and I hope that you will love it as much as I did ❤ I also really want to read more of Heather Demetrios' books, especially after loving I'll Meet You There so, very much. It's such an amazing book ❤

    1. I feel like I’ll need a support group for all the feels Second Chance Summer will give me. Also, I’d definitely recommend Something Real. The adults in the book will make you rage, but it’s so fascinating to explore that darker side of reality TV.

  2. Such great books to look forward to! It actually took me ages to read strange the dreamer, though Taylor’s one of my favourite authors too, but it didn’t disappoint! Morning Star is a fantastic conclusion- I hope you love it! and I really liked second chance summer 😀

    1. I feel like slow and steady is the best way to tackle the book. Actually, it’s how I tackle most books these days haha. I’m glad that you enjoyed them both. It bodes well for me. 😀

  3. I really have to read a Melina Marchetta book asap!! Jellicoe Road has been on my TBR for years and it’s ridiculous at this point that I still haven’t read it.
    I love Morgan Matson’s books but I have to say I sort of DNF’d Save the Date. I was really excited for it but I found it a bit dull and unnecessarily long. I hope I get get back to it when I’m more in the mood for YA contemporary!

    1. YES! I am 100% all for you reading a Melina Marchetta book. I’ll admit I didn’t understand the hype of Jellicoe Road when I started, but by the end, I was in a puddle of feels.
      I’m sorry to hear that about Save the Date, but I’ve also seen some similar comments on the length of the book as well.
