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

It's time for Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This week's theme: Top Ten Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

1. Michael Lewis:  I read and loved Moneyball.  My husband has read and loved The Big Short and highly recommends it, so I figure I should read it. 


 2. Kazuo Isiguro:  I thought Never Let Me Go was a moving and thought-provoking book. The Remains of the Day is another one I'd love to try out.


3. Alexandre Dumas: The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite all time books.  I'd love to read Three Musketeers.

4. Neil Gaiman: I read the book he wrote with Terry Pratchett and would love to read more from him.  But where to start?  Any recommendations?


5. Erik Larson: After reading The Devil in the White City, I went out and bought Thunderstruck, but haven't read it yet.


6. Ned Vizzini: It's Kind of a Funny Story was a very interesting book on depression. I am wondering if his other books address the same topic.


7. Michael Shaara: I read The Killer Angels since it was a Pulitzer Prize winner and really enjoyed it.  He also wrote For Love of The Game and I would like to read that.


8. Kathryn Stockett: I enjoyed The Help, but I don't think she has written any other books.


9. Jennifer Egan: A Visit From the Goon Squad was entertaining and unique.  I would love to read some of her other work.


10. Barry Lyga: I need to read the rest of the I Hunt Killer series!

  1. Oooh, good question about Neil Gaiman...I'd probably go with either Stardust (never saw the movie, loved the book though) or The Graveyard Book (more YA, found it to be quite a tearjerker at the end) as a starting point. Neverwhere is intriguing too (and a bit darker if you're into that).

    Hope you enjoy The Remains of the Day! It took a second read on my part to really relish in the book and understand the overall delicate nature of the story...And yay of course for Alexandre Dumas ;)

    1. Yippee! I love when people recommend books over and over on one list; it makes me feel more excited to read it! I think Remains of the Day will need to move up on the TBR list!
