Top Ten Authors I need to take on a second date

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fly honeys over at The Broke & The Bookish

This week they ask the top ten author's we've read only one book from but definitely want to read more. AKA - what on earth am I doing with my life that I haven't taken these authors on a second date with their books yet?!

Fangirl (which I didn't review on the blog, I guess)
I've heard AMAZING things about Eleanor & Park and The Attachments - which would you recommend next? 

Lucky for me, I have an ARC of I'll Give You the Sun!

It was definitely one of those books that grew on me after I read it (don't let the review fool you - I did like it) but my interest in Jones writing was through the ROOF after that! She's such a prolific writer...I don't know where to start! HALP.

(like everyone else on the planet)
Which of her other books do you recommend? I've heard mixed reviews...

I was JUST lamenting to Judith the other day how much I want to read another one of Lish's books for the snarky humor and well written characters! 

This is one of those quiet, thoughtful, incredibly well written books that is just not on enough radars around the blogosphere. I can't imagine how great her other books are! 

I've heard rave reviews for Farenheit 451, so I suppose I'll have to give that a whirl. 

You guys. I've only read Sabriel. I KNOW. I KNOWWWWWWWWW OKAY.

 I love love loooovvved this book and really do need to continue on with the series. And maybe check out her other stuff, yeah?

Okay this one is kind of cheating since I've read two books by Jennifer  - Forget You & Endless Summer - but there are SO MANY Jennifer Echols books out there that I thought this counted. 
Plus it's my blog and I do what I want. 

I'd really love it if you helped a girl out by suggesting what books to follow up with for these authors! 
Are any of these cool cats on your TTT list? DO SHARE. 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. ATTACHMENTS, Lisa. ATTACHMENTS.

    Just trust me and read that before anything else on this list because it's THE BOMB.

  2. I haven't read any of Rainbow Rowell's YA works (yet) but Attachments was AMAZING. I also enjoyed Landline quite a bit.

    Gone Girl is the only Gillian Flynn novel I haven't read, but Sharp Objects was my favorite of her other two novels. Dark Places was really good, but Sharp Objects smacked me in the face and I can still feel the sting.

    1. Okay, sounds like Attachments is the clear winner there! And Sharp Objects will be on my list for sure!

  3. Gone Girl is my favourite by Flynn, but I've read the other two. I know some people prefer the others as well, so it's personal choice really, but they're worth the read!

  4. I have to read pretty much every author on your list! Yep, just rechecked, every one. But especially Jandy Nelson (I'll Give You The Sun is on my bookshelf, begging to be read!) and Rainbow Rowell, of course. Great list!

  5. Can't go wrong with Ray Bradbury. Dandelion Wine is one of my favorite books. Very different than a lot of his other works --no supernatural, post-apocalyptic, or otherworldly themes, just a semi-autobiographical story about a twelve year old boy's summer-- but beautifully written.

    1. That's what I've heard. Oh man, Dandelion Wine sounds super good, if a bit different from his usual genre.

  6. Great list! I've actually read all of Nina LaCour /except/ Hold Still. I plan on reading it soon. I LOVED Everything Leads to You. So. Freaking. Good. I was less in love with The Disenchantments. As for Jandy Nelson. I /just/ finished I'll Give You The Sun and it was fabulous. I'm working on my review for it. Like. Her writing just feeds my soul. I love it so much. For Maureen Johnson, I highly recommend The Bermudez Triangle... and 13 Little Blue Envelopes is wonderful too.

    Again. Great list. And thank you for stopping by my blog! You got a new follower out of me :)

    1. Everything Leads To You has that AMAZING cover, too! How can I possibly resist?

      HELLO THERE NEW FRIEND.

  7. I love Maureen Johnson on Twitter and what not, but haven't had much interest in contemps. I too am overwhelmed by DWJ backlog...I've read three of hers (all three Howl books), but choosing where to go next is hard! I've read Landline and Attachments and they're both lovely (I liked Attachments better), but NOTHING has come close to the epic love I feel for Fangirl!! It still might be my favorite book read this year.

    1. Yes how are we to choose any DWJ book when there are SO MANY to choose from! Gah.
