Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Popular Authors I’ve Never Read.
I love reading these lists on all the blogs every week and this particular Tuesday has been less than awesome thus far…. so I decided it would be a great day to test drive my first ever Top Ten Tuesday post.
Ok here goes…..
John Green: The Fault in Our Stars. This one is on my list. It is…it’s actually ON my kindle…I WANT to read it…But I just haven’t. I’ve heard this book is beautiful, intelligent and heartbreaking, and if I don’t read it soon my sister might disown me… But I am a weeeee bit of a wimp sometimes. I know It’s going to make me cry so it just keeps getting pushed aside in favor of all those dystopian save the world escapist books I love.
E.L James: Fifty Shades of Anything. Yep. I haven’t read it and I probably won’t. This is me being a bit of a book snob here…But I sorta judge all the women out there who have ONLY read these books recently …I read all kinds of trashy fluff books so I’m not judging the content…Just the fact that lot’s of people I know read one series in the last two years and it was this one…Ugh.
Markus Zusak: The Book Thief. Again, this is a book that I’ve heard is beautiful and life changing and I have one or two family members who might not invite me for holidays anymore if I don’t read it sometime soon.
Robert Heinlein: Glory Road and a million other things. Ok maybe my family is a little maniac when it comes to books and authors but this is an author I need to read if I want to keep the peace at Thanksgiving dinner not to mention the rights to my Science Fiction Fan girl card. Actually…I HAVE read Podakayne of Mars but it was years ago and the guy wrote 32 books and 59 short stories so that doesn’t really count. What can I say I’ve always been more of an Isaac Asimov girl…
Judy Blume: I KNOW…How did I survive adolescence without reading a single Judy Blume book??? I don’t know, but I totally did. I always preferred dragons and magic and her books seemed sadly lacking in both.
J.D Salinger: Catcher in the Rye. I have a whole list of classics that I really, really need to read…. this is just the one I feel most guilty about recently.
Niel Gaiman: I am certain I will love his books… Someday… When I finally pick one up. I honestly can’t believe I haven’t!!! They are pretty much right up my alley.
Isabel Wilkerson: The Warmth of Other Suns. This is another one that’s living on my kindle that I keep intending to read. I guess I just haven’t been in the mood for anything quite this serious lately…. I might be as bad as those fifty shades ladies I’m judging.
Greg Mortenson: Three Cups of Tea. Why are there three copies of this book on my shelf??? I’m honestly not sure. Wasn’t there a controversy about this one?? Oh we’ll…. I don’t actually feel overly guilty about not reading it.
Richelle Mead: Vampire Academy. This is just on this list to prove that I haven’t read every single trashy vampire book ever written… Although I did see the movie and it was much funnier than I expected so I’ll probably end up reading these someday;)
Well there you have it… My Tuesday seems better already!
