Top Ten Authors I've only read one book from but NEED to read more.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
For a while now I've been undecided as to whether or not to join in on this Top Ten Tuesday meme. But I decided that it would be a good way to get more involved in the blogging community. This goes the same as all my other segments, I probably won't do this every week due to going back to university soon but I will try my best to do as many as I can.

So this weeks Top Ten Tuesday is "Top Ten Authors I've only read one book from but NEED to read more." I'm going to do this in reverse order from the author I'm least excited to read to the author I'm most excited to read.  Let us begin.

10. Dan Wells

If you've been following my blog for a little while you have probably heard me mention this author before. I took out his first book in the John Cleaver series from the library on a whim, called "I am not a serial killer" and ever since, I've wanted to read more by him, I didn't even realise he was the author of partials until I looked at his website! 

9. Thomas Harris
I'm sure everyone has heard of this series, even if it is only because you've watched the films. But I have read the first in this series called Red Dragon and I really enjoyed it, I absolutely adore the films and the books are just as good if not better!

8. Erin Lange

Erin Lange is a fairly new author so has only written two books, one of which I have already read and reviewed, butter. I absolutely adored butter and i really want to read something else by her and she has another books called dead ends!

7. John Steinbeck

Like the majority of people who have read steinbeck, I have only ever read of mice and men and it quickly became one of my all time favourite books, full of moral dilemmas and with such a heartbreaking ending (though, I read it in high school and someone wrote in the front of the book what the ending was... thanks.) I have never gotten round to reading anything else by him! Nor do I know what any of his other books are about but these are the ones that I have heard are also really good books that he has written.

6. Annabel Pitcher

Another fairly new author that I have read one book by and reviewed, ketchup clouds. She has only one other book at the moment though I am hoping she will continue to release more. Her writing style is amazing and her stories are so unique, I WANT MORE!

5. Mark Haddon

The curious incident of the dog in the night-time is one of my all time favourite books. It's from the perspective of a boy who suffers with autism and it's just so interesting and so unique, I absolutely love it. I haven't read anything else by him though! I do own a spot of bother that I got from a charity shop (great find!) but I still haven't attempted that!

4. Matthew Quick

If you've read my blog before you're probably thinking "why him?, you didn't enjoy silver linings that much" but I know that if I had read the book before I watched the film then I would be in love with it, if I had just been patient. It's a fantastic story, his writing is really unique and I know a lot of his stories surround mental illness so I really want to get more of his work! I don't even own anything else.

3. Laurie Halse Anderson

Any book blogger or booktuber will have heard of this author, she is an author that writes about really controversial, hard hitting subjects such as rape, anorexia, self harm; that perhaps you should read into what each book is about before you dive into them because they can be quite delicate subject matters. I've very nearly finished winter girls by this author and I adore her writing style, the way she writes makes you think that the story is real, that this character actually has been through these things, she's just such an amazing author.

2. John Green

Yeah, that's it, let your mouth hang open in shock. I am one of those people that has only read the fault in our stars, which a lot of people have told me is a huge mistake as it's his best work but hey! I want to give his other books a chance, I love his writing so I really want to try the other books. I currently own looking for alaska, paper towns and an abundance of katherines that I haven't read yet, I really want to read will grayson, will grayson the most!

1. Anne Cassidy

You have no idea how much I want.. No, NEED, to read more books by Anne Cassidy. Missing judy was just amazing, and the crime is a bit of an easier read than adult crime, so this style eased me into the crime genre and I just want to read more and more (may have to treat myself to the boxset for my birthday on Monday!)

So that's it for my top ten Tuesday, I hope you enjoyed it, please let me know if you have read any of these authors and what you thought of their other books if you have read something that I haven't!
