Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post! This week’s theme is “authors I haven’t read, but want to” and I decided to narrow it down a little: 10 authors that have been on my TBR for what feels like forever, and the books I want to read first by them!
10 authors that have been on my TBR for WAY too long:
- Laini Taylor → the first book I want to read is… Strange the Dreamer
- Ania Ahlborn → the first book I want to read is… Brother
- Patrick Rothfuss → the first book I want to read is… The Name of the Wind (obviously)
- Sabaa Tahir → the first book I want to read is… All My Rage (I know, a bunch of people are probably shocked I didn’t pick AEITA!)
- Dawn Kurtagich → the first book I want to read is… Teeth in the Mist
- Jennifer L. Armentrout → the first book I want to read is… From Blood and Ash
- Nick Cutter → the first book I want to read is… The Troop
- Mindy McGinnis → the first book I want to read is… Be Not Far From Me
- Elise Kova → the first book I want to read is… A Deal with the Elf King
- Tiffany D. Jackson → the first book I want to read is… Grown (it’s on my Spring TBR!)
What author has been on your TBR way too long? Have you read any of the authors in my list?
Let me know in the comments, or drop a link to your T10T post for the week!

I love the Laini Taylor books I’ve read, especially Strange the Dreamer. I hope you get to a few of these authors soon.
Thank you! I really can’t wait to read Strange the Dreamer!
There are so many authors on this list that are also on my TBR and I cannot wait to read them!
I hope we both love them all! 😀
Oh yeah The Name of the Wind has been on my TBR for way too long as well!
I feel like I really wanna read it soon, but part of me sometimes thinks I should wait until a release date for book 3 is announced!
I’m sure Laini Taylor is there somewhere on my TBR but I know for a fact that Patrick Rothfuss is! Really need to get to those some time.
I hope we both enjoy both of those authors! 🙂 Happy reading!
Not read any of these. Hope you enjoy them!
Thank you, Claire! I hope so too! 😀
I haven’t read Grown yet either!
My post: https://lydiaschoch.com/top-ten-tuesday-authors-i-havent-read-but-want-to/
It sounds really good! I really hope I’m going to like the author because it looks like she writes a lot of hard-hitting contemporary titles and I tend to enjoy those a lot.
Elise Kova, yesssss!!! I feel like I never see her mentioned and I’m such a huge fan of her 🥰 give some love!
Oh awesome! You’re right, it seems like people don’t talk about her too often even though the few people I do hear talk about her, all really love her books! I guess she must be one of those really underrated faves. 😀 I own a few books of hers and I’m excited to finally read one soon, hopefully!
I think All My Rage is an excellent pick for your first Sabaa Tahir book – her writing really shines in her latest novel! And I can’t wait to hear what you think of Tiffany D. Jackson and Grown!
I still want to read something by Elise Kova & JLA too. FBAA is staring me down in my Audible account….and so is A Deal with the Elf King LOL. Hoping to read these this year!
Oh awesome, I’m so glad to hear you say that about All My Rage! I have the ALC from Libro and I keep thinking I’ll pick it up soon, but I haven’t had a lot of audio-friendly time lately.
I hope you get the chance to read them soon and that you like them! 😀
I enjoyed the audio a lot!
And thank you! 🙂
Great list! I feel like Elise Kova has been on my TBR for *ages* as well. I keep seeing ads for her books on my Kindle and every time I see the covers I want to add them all to my list but I still haven’t read one 🙈 I hope to read Grown this year too—it’s defo high up on my TBR. I hope you enjoy these authors/books whenever you read them!
Thank you! Omg, Elise Kova has the BEST covers, I swear! I fell in love with the covers for the Loom books years ago and somehow still haven’t read them, but to this day, they’re some of the prettiest books on my shelves. 😂 I hope we both get the chance to check her books out soon AND that we both enjoy Grown!
I really want to try The Troop too, although after everything I’ve heard, I’m a little nervous, lol.
I’m nervous about it too, lol! But I always hear it’s so good and disturbing, so I want to try it!
Ooh you need to read Name of the Wind!
I really do! It sounds so good and I always hear everyone rave about Patrick Rothfuss!!
So many amazing books. I love Sabaa Tahir!!! Laini Taylor is great too. Strange the Dreamer is such a beautiful book. I hope you get to these and enjoy them! <3
My Top Ten!
Thank you Leslie!! I’m so excited to read these. 😀
Taylor and Armentrout are the only ones I’ve read, but they are great writers. I hope you love all of these authors when you get to them.
I’m so glad you enjoy both of them! I’m really excited to finally try all of these authors out – hopefully someday soon! 😀
Laini Taylor has been kind of hit and miss for me, I really enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone and the novella from that series, Night of Cake and Puppets, but Strange The Dreamer and the second book of the DOSAB trilogy, Days of Blood and Starlight were real misses. I’ve only read An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and it was fine, but not enough for me to want to continue the series.

I’m sorry Laini Taylor was hit-and-miss for you! And I’ve heard a few folks say that about An Ember in the Ashes – I’m hoping I have better luck hehe! 😀
Yeah, some authors are just like that I guess, you can’t love everything by everyone, even my favourite authors have some books I wasn’t as keen on. Hopefully!
Laini Taylor’s writing is beautiful and Tiffany D. Jackson ALWAYS emotionally destroys me with her books, so happy reading! 😀 <3
Thank you! Haha omg, I’m going to have to prepare myself for Grown, aren’t I?! 😂
I’ve heard Nick Cutter’s books are a trip 🙂
Same! I always hear they’re so dark and disturbing – can’t wait to see it for myself! 😀
My comment didn’t got through the first time, so again…Tiffany D. Jackson is one of my favorite authors. Her debut, Allegedly, had such a huge impact on me. I still think of that book all these years later. Grown is probably my second favorite. Prepare yourself emotionally before diving into that one.
That’s amazing! I LOVE hearing someone say a book has really stuck with them over the years, especially in this community because we all read so much – for a book to stick with you for so long, that’s something really special. ♥ I will definitely have to prepare myself for Grown! I keep hearing it will wreck me! 😅 I’m a little nervous, lol.
Yes, also check trigger warnings for it. It deals with some very heavy topics.
I will, thank you! ♥
Mindy McGinnis is one of my favorites. Happy reading!
Thank you, Lauren! I’ve heard so many good things about her books and I can’t believe I haven’t read anything by her yet!
Great list! If you want to buddy read A Deal with the Elf King, let me know! It’s been on TBR for so long!
Oooh I would love to do a buddy read with you! ♥
Awesome! Just text me when you want to read it. My schedules open!
Okay, I will! I need to finish up some ARCs and stuff first, but I would love to in a few weeks if that works for you?
Yes of course!
Sabaa Tahir & Laini Taylor are some of my favorite authors, so I hope you enjoy many of their work 😍✨ and you reminded me that I want to read something by Tiffany D. Jackson too! All of her books sound amazing and powerful 👏🏻
Oh awesome, I can’t wait to check out their writing 🥰 and I hope we both love Tiffany’s books when we get to them! They really do sound so good!
I’m currently reading Strange the Dreamer! It’s my first Laini Taylor book as she has been on my TBR for so long as well 😅 I also want to read A Deal with the Elf King! I read Elise Kova’s Alchemists of Loom before and it was really good 🥰
Oooh I hope you’re enjoying Strange!! It sounds so good. I just love the whole premise so much! I need more books about librarians, etc. lol!
god i hope you LOVE the blood and ash series!
Omg me too, I’m so excited to pick it up (hopefully v soon)!
