Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is ‘Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By’ but, for whatever reason, I wasn’t feeling all that inspired by my list when I started to compile it because a lot of the authors on it were authors from my childhood that I’ve mentioned a lot before.
So instead this week I’ve decided to talk about the authors I’d like to read everything by after enjoying some of their work!
I finally crossed Wild Beauty off my TBR earlier this year and I loved it. Magical Realism is a genre I’ve struggled with in the past, but McLemore’s writing is beautiful and I’d love to read more of their work very soon.
Amy Rose Capetta
Capetta is an author I have a feeling I’ll be calling a favourite author in a year or so, once I’ve read more of her work, because I thoroughly enjoyed The Brilliant Death and The Lost Coast and I’d like to read everything else she’s written.
Waters, on the other hand, is already a favourite author of mine, but I’ve only read five of her six novels. I still haven’t crossed The Night Watch off my TBR and that’s something I’d like to do sooner rather than later!
Children of Time is one of the best sci-fi novels I’ve ever read and, since finishing it, I’ve been very keen to try more of Tchaikovsky’s work. I own copies of two of his other novels and I’ve been sent a third via NetGalley, so I’m planning to read more from him this year.
I didn’t love Uprooted as much as I hoped, but Spinning Silver is one of my favourite novels of all-time. I’m so excited for the first book in Novik’s new series being released this autumn, but one day I’d also like to go back and check out her Temeraire series, too.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I’ve read three books by Adichie and yet still haven’t read any of her novels, despite hearing wonderful things about them. I tend to love work by Nigerian writers, so it’s about time I crossed one of her novels off my TBR.
I don’t read YA contemporary very often, but Albertalli is probably my favourite author in the genre. I’ve read and loved three of her novels, but I haven’t read either of the novels she’s co-written with Adam Silvera or Aisha Saeed yet.
I don’t think it’s any secret that I fell in love with The Diviners series last year, which I’m planning to finish up this year, and once I do I’d like to read everything else Bray’s written, too. I have a lot of respect for the amount of research she does and I’m very excited to read even more of her work in future.

N. K. Jemisin
The Broken Earth is one of my favourite series, so I’d like to read Jemisin’s older series and her newer work!
