Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!
This week’s (May 7th, 2019) topic is: Characters That Remind Me of Myself. I’m not really feeling this topic this week, so I changed it to Books by My Favorite Authors That I Still Need to Read.
Mirielle is on hiatus for May due to unforeseen circumstances, so I’ll be doing this myself this month. Let’s get this started!
The Wayward Children series is one of my all-time favorites, at least the first two are. Why haven’t I read the last two in the series? That’s a great freaking question, one I have zero good answers to. It’s going to happen soon.
I think Schwab is a brilliant writer. She is is a master at creating complex worlds and characters, yet I still haven’t read her the one she is most famous for (DSoM). I am not sure if I’ll get to both of these this year but hopefully I’ll knock at least one of these sets out.
I know! Stop booing at me! I get it! This is one I’m determined to read this year – I have no good excuses. It’s been high on my TBR for a couple years and just gets pushed back for one thing or another. NO MORE! I’m getting this done this year!
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I have to admit, I’ve been holding off on these on purpose. Jay is a notorious rat bastard for cliffhangers and I just can’t take it. I am probably doing the series this year though, when Darkdawn comes out and I don’t have to deal with a year of not knowing.
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
I’m kind of surprised that this series still hasn’t happened yet for me. I’m a huge ACOTAR fan and I keep meaning to read this series but it’s so big and such a commitment. It was one of my big goals this year to read it, but honestly – I have too many other series in front of it right now. I have a feeling it will be on my goals list again next year. Opps!
Let’s be real, I’m so behind on Holly’s work – it’s not even funny. I’ve only read The Cruel Prince, so I basically need to read everything this woman has written. I think I will start with these two next.
My Plain Jane by Cynithia Hand, Brodi Aston and Jodi Meadows
My Lady Jane is one of my all-time favorite books. I could re-read it a million times and I was dying for the release of My Plain Jane and I still haven’t read this. I feel like I do this often. Get my most anticipated books, then let them sit on the shelves for a year before I read them – I judge me so hard.
Most of the Stalking Jack the Ripper Series by Kerri Maniscalco
Again, I have nothing to say. I live for horror and love when it’s mixed with historical/gothic fiction. The main reason I didn’t get this done is because we had a series read for this in TBR and Beyond last year and, of course, I got sick and couldn’t keep up. This year, this is one of the series I’m determined to get done.
The Iron Flower by Laurie Forest
I adored the first book, The Black Witch and was really looking forward to the sequel but just haven’t gotten to it yet. I also have the bind out of a couple of novellas that I’m looking foward to reading as well.
City of Bastards by Andrew Schvarts
The first in this trilogy, Royal Bastards, kind of flew under the radar and didn’t get the best of reviews but whatever. I thought it was fantastic and I’m excited to read the second book in the series and I believe the last book is coming out in June or July, so I can finish this one off this year!
Do you have books that you still need to read from some of your favorite authors? Are you in the same boat with any of these books? Let me know in the comments below!
