September 16: Top Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
(I’m going to have to stretch this to one or two books, because I have a tendency to seek out more books by an author I find I love pretty quickly.)
1. Heather Demetrios. I found the characters in Something Real interesting, and the idea of the book appealed to me, so I’m eager to give another book by this author a shot–even though it will have to be a different stand-alone, or series.
2. Susan Ee. I read Angelfall, and bought the second book some time ago, but I haven’t read it, even though I was really excited to get it. The first one was a little hard on my heart, and I’m worried about the second–also, there’s going to be several more. Maybe I’ll wait until more of them are out.
3. C. Gockel. This is entirely due to a freebie story about Loki, where he’s kind of the good guy–or at least misunderstood and mistreated–and there’s several more I really want to read.
4. Jonathan L. Howard. I’ve read two of the Johannes Cabal books, and now really want to read the fourth one. I still need to read the first, as well, but I’m more curious about what happens next.
5. Ambelin Kwaymullina. I finally got my hands on The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf, two years after it came out in Australia. I will likley have similar waits for the other books in the series, but it was so good I remain hopeful.
6. Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess). She’s only published one book, but she promises she’s working on a second, and I really wish she was done with it so I could read it.
7. Melissa F. Olson. I’ve read two books in a series about a null who does clean-up for magical creatures, which is continuing–and there’s another mysteries series that looks promising, too.
8. Sam Starbuck. I read two free and excellent ebooks, and have bookmarked a couple more that look interesting. I just have to find the time to get to them…
9. Maggie Stiefvater. I have no excuse for this one, she’s been recommended to me forever, and I even have a trilogy by her waiting on my Kindle. The only book I’ve read so far was a gift from someone.
10. Karen White. I read The House on Tradd Street, and am pretty curious about the rest of the books from that series.
