Girl behind the blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish

This weeks topic was top 10 popular author I've never read from, this is in no order.

Also might I say this post is going to make SO many of you mad at me!! There are ALOT of popular authors I have not read lol, way more than 10 probably. :P


  • Suzanne Collins: I have not read Hunger Games...I know I am a bad person!!! I'm just never in the mood to pick it up :/ I have not seen any of the movies either.
  • John Green: GAH, I really need to read his work soon, all I hear is awesome things about his books, and he himself is an AWESOME person, I'm subscribed to his and Hank's youtube channel and have been a nerd fighter for awhile now!  
  • Richelle Mead: Ah My mom has even read the Vampire Academy series and loved it, yet I still have not!
  • Lauren Oliver: I own a few of her books...still have yet to pick them up though!


  • Tahereh Mafi: I own Shatter Me, and Unravel Me...but have I read them?!?! No ):<
  • Veronica Roth: Ah this is another I know I'm gonna get alot of people mad at me for!!! I just am never in the mood to pick up Divergent, even though I'm sure I'll love it whenever I do pick it up.

  • Gayle Forman: She is SUCH a popular contemporary author that I have heard nothing,but awesome things about. Must. read. her. books. soon.
  • James Dashner: Ah The Maze Runner I have owned for awhile and it sounds AMAZING, I really need to pick it up soon. 

  • Stephanie Perkins: I have heard her Anna and the French Kiss series is so cute and funny! Why havent I read it yet!?!
  • Rainbow Rowell: She is an author that has in the last year been EVERYWHERE and I have heard nothing, but awesome things about her books. Will be picking up Eleanor and Park soon (:

So there is 10 popular authors I have not yet read from, but hopefully will soon!!! Let me know what you think of my list, and leave a link to your top ten Tuesday post in the comments below!! (:

I haven't actually read any books by 7 of the people on your list either. Any time I mention it though so many people reply telling me I need to get to these, but I just never seem to be able to. Divergent & The Hunger Games were really good & I've liked the books of John Green's that I've read too. Hopefully you'll get a chance to read some of them soon!

Critica said...

Even though my mind was a little blown by the top two, I can't judge because for one thing, I haven't read any of the other authors you mentioned, and for another thing, I haven't read anything by Sarah Dessen, which concerns people XD The more I look through people's lists, the more authors I find that I should've put on my list.

Here's mine:

Amber Garr said...

Richelle is a must. Any of her books are well worth the time! :)

Life's Simple Pleasures said...

I've only read some Veronica, Gayle, Stephanie, and Lauren. I NEED to read John Green gosh!

Aimee (Aimee, Always) said...

I've read from all of these authors already :O Suzanne Collins, Richelle Mead and Stephanie Perkins are authors you MUST read from. :) The rest were either enjoyable or just okay for me. I hope you enjoy reading from all of them in the future!

From you list I've read only Suzanne Collins and Veronica Roth. I'd have to agree with you on all the others, especially Rainbow Rowell and John Green. They made my list too. I'm not big on Contemporary/Realistic Fiction and that's what their type of stories are. I'm trying to get more into that genre, I even checked Rainbow Rowell's, Fangirl, from the library the other day. Hope I like it!!

So many great authors on this list - you gotta read them :)

Amanda Gray said...

I've read John Green and Gayle Forman, but I think that's it from your list..
I'm bad on popular authors, especially when I own their books, it's terrible, but this list is great!
My Top Ten Tuesday

Amy M. said...

I'm in the same boat as you. I have not read any of these authors. 1/2 of the authors on your list made it onto mine. Most I seriously want to start reading. I'm terrified of The Fault in Our Stars though. Books that will supposedly make me cry scare me. It's this weird fear I have.

Dani Cotton said...

Out of the authors on your list, I've only read Suzanne Collins, John Green, Lauren Oliver and Rainbow Rowell. Haven't read anything by the other authors either, despite owning books by all of them :P Terrible!
We should challenge ourselves to have read them by the summer, or something!

Great post!

I don't think THG are the best books ever, but you are definitely missing out on a good story. And the movies are SO good. One of the best adaptations I've ever seen :) Especially Catching fire, which was my favorite book from the series. I'm not a fan of Lauren Oliver's YA books, but her MG stories are a delight :D I really need to read Shatter me, I'm so behind!

Tyler H. Jolley said...

Dude, Haley, how have you not read The Fault in Our Stars? Lol, j/k I know you're super busy. But seriously, bump it up in TBR list, it's so good.

Unknown said...

I have read all of these authors. However, I think it is cool that you have not. These are majorly hyped up books and sometimes the blogging community needs some diversity. When these books were popular when they first came out the only thing I saw were reviews of these! :)

However, most of these books I really good! :) I urge you to read them when you can ! :) xx

Ps, I have just moved to wordpress! :) I saw you discussing it on Facebook a bit back and i recommend it! :) Wordpress
