Top Ten Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More Of

It’s so weird to look at odd reading habits like this one – authors whose work you actually want to read more of…yet you haven’t yet. Such is book nerd life.

Head over to the Broke and the Bookish for more posts like this one!

Top Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

top ten tuesday read breathe relax


1. Jandy Nelson– After reading I’ll Give You the Sun, I am in love with this author. She has one other standalone book out, and it shall be mine.

2. John Corey Whaley– I read Noggin earlier this year and am excited to read his previous work, Where Things Come Back!

3. Michael Grant– I’ve heard good things about his Gone series, so it’s next up on the list.

4. Katherine Longshore– If you even remotely enjoy Downton Abbey, then you should absolutely be reading Katherien Longshore. I’ve only read Brazen, and even I know that.

5. Elizabeth Fama– Ok, so funny story. I didn’t know Fama was the other of Monstrous Beauty when I started reading Plus One. Cuz if I had, I wouldn’t have bothered reading it at all. Monstrous Beauty has a horrifying start and is really super scary. I DNF’d it and moved along. But Plus One was so fantastic that I’m willing to put that whole thing behind us (Ok, Elizabeth?).

6. Jenny Han– The Summer I Turned Pretty books seem like the perfect beach read. I adored To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before so hard. I’m a Han fan for sure.

7. Marie Rutkoski– I only “met” Rutkoski through The Winner’s Curse, but she is a busy lady. I’d honestly read anything this author writes.

8. Victoria Schwab– I think I had a really weird “first book” experience with Victoria Schwab. I read Vicious, an adult superhero origins story that wasn’t exactly my style. But, people rave about her Archived series, so I’m willing to give it another shot.

9. Rachel Cohn– I have only read the first book of the Beta series, but let me tell you, the story has stuck with me. I need to finish the series and pick up her other books.

10. Mindy McGinnis– There’s a sequel of sorts to Not A Drop to Drink, and I have it my possession…so yeah. This is going to happen.

How about you? One-time-read authors that you want to read more of?
