Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is authors we’ve read one book from, want to read more, and haven’t gotten around to yet. To be clear, these are authors who do have more books (there are also a few authors I’d love to read more from but they only have the one book… so far). Technically, I could have come up with more than five that fit this description, but I decided to limit my list to the ones I’m most interested in.
#1 – Elizabeth Haynes
Into the Darkest Corner is one of the most intensely personal thrillers I’ve ever read. I was so wrapped up in this story, and Haynes’s other books have been on my TBR ever since. It’s hard to believe I haven’t gotten to them yet.
#2 – Patricia Highsmith
Strangers on a Train was the first ITW Must-Read that I picked from the list, rather than just happening to read it on my own, and it was fantastic. I love how well it holds up even today. I’m really curious to read more from her.
#3 – Khaled Hosseini
And the Mountains Echoed was one of the books in the tournament I helped judge back in March. I didn’t think it would be my kind of thing at all, but I really enjoyed it (if it were up to me, it would have won the whole thing), and most of his fans say that his other two books are even better.
#4 – Sidney Sheldon
The Stars Shine Down fell in my lap by accident, and I wasn’t expecting to be sucked in the way I was. It was so addicting, and Sheldon has such a huge backlist to choose from, I’m sure to find something else to devour.
#5 – Tom Rob Smith
The Farm is probably one of the best books I’ve read this year. I’ve been interested in this author for a while, and now that I’ve finally read one of his books, I’m even more eager to continue.
What authors do you need to read more from?
