Top Ten Authors I've Never Read

I can assure you that I have full intentions of reading all of these authors sometime soon (possibly this year!) and I am really, really embarrassed for not picking up any of their books yet. Sighhhh.
I have been dying to read his books ever since I've heard people raving about his Chaos Walking trilogy. So many people adore these books..I OWN these books..and I still haven't read them! Gah!
This one is an author that I've only really heard of this year, but so many people rave about his books. I really want to pick up his Mistborn trilogy sometime soon since from what I've heard, it's a fantastic high fantasy series.
Ahhhhhh this one is just shameful. How am I totally in love with the contemporary genre and yet have read none of her books!?
Again, I OWN her books, but I haven't had a chance to pick them up yet. So many people rave about her Morganville Vampires series and I just know that I have to read them sometime soon when I'm in the mood for a good paranormal series.
The Across the Universe trilogy has received such high ratings that I honestly have no idea why I haven't started reading it yet. What's wrong with me? These books need to be read!
Now I know that I HAVE to read the Maze Runner series sometime soon - especially since the movie is coming out sometime this year, starring the beautiful and amazing freaking Dylan O'Brien. Must, must, MUST read these books asap.
One of my closest friends back in high school was completely in love with Scott Westerfeld it wasn't even funny. She loved every single book he wrote. In the blogosphere, so many people rave about The Uglies series. I neeeeed to reeeeead these books!
Again another author that really goes without saying. How can I say that I love contemporary and yet have never read any of her books? I even OWN Catching Jordan! Gah.
I need, need, NEED to start reading books from the New Adult genre and I know that this author is the go-to author to start that off. So many people rave and adore her books. Why haven't I started any??
Andddd another contemporary author that exists and I feel shamed for having not touched any of her beautiful books. What. Is. Wrong. With Me.

That's it guys! How do you think? And how about you - what authors have you shamefully not gotten around to reading yet?


  1. Ahh, great list! I've only read Patrick Ness so far from your list!

    1. Thank you so much! x) There are so many authors we need to get around to reading haha.

  2. Eeep, Beth Revis and Miranda Kenneally are some of my favorite authors. I like James Dashner as well. I've tried reading from Patrick Ness but DNFed one of his books. :( Sarah Dessen's an okay author for me. I have a Brandon Sanderson book here but haven't read it yet! D: Great list, Alice!

    1. Ahh I so, so, SO need to get around to reading their books sometime soon! Hopefully in the next few months. :) I really want to read James Dashner, because well, it's a given that I have to read the book before the movie haha.

      Naw, that's a shame you didn't like Patrick Ness! Not every author is for everyone, hopefully I like him. :/

      Thanks lovely! <3

  3. I LOVE MIRANDA! She's my favorite Contemporary author (wait actually she's just ONE of my long list of favorites lol). And The Maze Runner is an awesome series, definitely one of the best dystopians I've ever read. I haven't read half of the authors here either though. Great list! :D

    New follower on bloglovin!! I'm so glad to have discovered your awesome blog :)

    1. I SO need to get around to reading Miranda's books ASAP!! I can't believe I've been so slow getting around to reading them, I mean hello, I OWN them! (What's wrong with me??).

      I definitely need to get around to reading The Maze Runner asap. I'm so, so, SO exited for the movie! Are you pumped for it too?

      Ahhh thank you so much Kimi! <3 So exciting to see a new face commenting here haha.

  4. My list had a lot of contemporary authors on it because for some reason I tend to shy away from that genre. No clue why, so many readers and bloggers are such fans of the genre. There's plenty of reviews and recommendations out there that there's really no excuse for why I can't find one and read it. I'm trying though, I checked out Fangirl from my local library :) LOL
    I'm just so into fantasy! There's still a lot of fantasy authors I've yet to read, that I'm dying to read!!! For instance, like you, Brandon Sanderson! HUGE TBR author, for sure! One day soon dammit!
    here's my list from that week's topic: http://bookhangoversbb.blogspot.com/2014/03/top-ten-tuesday-popular-authors-i-have.html
    BIG HUGS~ I'm now following your awesome lil' blog via bloglov' xoxo ♥

    1. I've actually really started to fall in love with contemporary this year - it's honestly like an addiction. Once you start and begin falling in love, you just can't stop. There are just so many good contemporary books out there as long as you know where to look! Hope you love Fangirl! :D I have yet to read that one.


      Thanks again for the follow lovely! <3
