There are a lot of authors that I haven’t read but for this Top Ten Tuesday list, I am picking Top Ten Popular Authors that I WANT to read but have NEVER read.
I picked Suzanne as the number 1 author that I have yet to read. In fact, all the books in THE HUNGER GAMES series are on my physical bookshelf right now waiting to be read. My hubby has already read the trilogy so I guess, there is no excuse for me not to have read it. Right?
J.R.R. Tolkien. Do not get me started with his books. I totally love the movies (yes, I have seen all movies to date) AND I have THE LORD OF THE RINGS books on my physical bookshelf and yet I haven’t read the books. Well to be fair, I have read about 2-3 pages of THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING but that is as far as I have gone.
When I saw WATER FOR ELEPHANTS on the plane traveling from LAX to MNL, I was touched! Naturally, when I found out that it was a book, I wanted to read it as well. That was THREE years ago.
My name is Veruca Salt. Okay, how could you not think of Mr. Dahl as a genius? When I realized that he was the author of THE WITCHES and CHARLIE, I really wanted to read his books ASAP. Of course, that was when I was in grade school and living in a small city where these books were not as accessible as they are now.
I remember a time when I loved to watch OPRAH and OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB was one of my favorite segments. She mentioned EAST OF EDEN and when I read the blurb I wanted to read it so bad. I begged my MOMster to buy me the book and she did. Naturally, I still have it sitting on my physical bookshelf – that is located in a different country from where I am right now. A friend also recommended this author to me and said that I would love his work.
I heard a lot of wonderful things about this author. I want to read his books. They said this book is the best. A blogger also recommended PAPER TOWNS. We shall see.
They said this is a classic. They said that I have to read his work before I die. I might just settle for the movie.
George R. R. Martin
With the rise in popularity of THE GAME OF THRONES on HBO, I am intrigued by this highly complicated book. Of course, I want to read all the books in the series. I KNOW it’s a LOT. But yeah, a girl can dream!
There was a time when I was in a classics kick. This was way back in 6th grade and I wanted to read VICTOR HUGO. My dad got me THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and I started reading a couple of pages and stopped.
Who doesn’t want to read STEPHEN KING? Even if I am NOT a fan of horror and I have NOT really seen any of the movies. Yes, that includes BOTH CARRIES. Oh. I did see MISERY. And that was amazing. I’m still rethinking my plans. I have to read him. SOON.
Did any of my picks make your list? Let me know via the comments.
