Top Ten Popular Authors I have NOT Read


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. If you want to play along, post a link on their site to your blog post and then post a link to them from your blog.

Working in a library means you are around readers. I polled my co-workers on their favorite popular authors and here’s the ones I have never read:

  1. Danielle Steele. Sorry. No desire to, either.
  2. Stephen King. 11/22/63 was highly recommended, so maybe I’ll try it.
  3. Nora Roberts. Um. Not really into romances.
  4. Charles Finch. Was convinced to check this guy out. Advised to read in order though, so I have a hold placed on A Beautiful Blue Death.
  5. Robert Jordan. Just too many pages…
  6. Michael Crichton. Saw the movies. Good enough.
  7. John Grisham. I don’t know why I haven’t read any of his. I probably would like them…
  8. J. A. Jance. I’m a bit embarrassed that I haven’t read any of hers. She is a featured author this month, with a program and book signing-sponsored by our library. Oh, well.
  9. Meg Cabot. Whoa, has she written a LOT! I’d heard of the Princess Diaries, but had no idea about all these others.
  10. Scott Westerfield. This YA author comes highly recommended so I may give him a go. Any suggestions as to which of his series I should try first?

  1. Yes – our list of “never-reads” would resemble yours very closely!! Have only read one book of #2 and also have 11/22/63 on our shelf in fact to be read
    And several of #7….. when we were younger but definitely have gone of his books.

    I haven’t read quite a few of these. But have read some of Roberts, King, Jordan and Grisham.

    Of these I have only read Stephen King. (On Writing.) 🙂

  4. Of all of those, I have only read Meg Cabot but most of the others are on my to-read list. However, I too dislike romance novels.

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Let's chat!
