Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Haven’t Read, But Want To

For That Artsy Reader Girl’s Top Ten Tuesday:

There are so many! And that’s not even counting all the authors I’ve read one book from, meant to read more, but haven’t gotten around to it yet!

T. Kingfisher- I’ve been really intrigued by some of her books but haven’t actually gotten to them yet. On my TBR: Paladin’s Grace, Nettle and Bone, The Seventh Bride, and A Wizard’s Guide To Defensive Baking (which is the best title ever!)

Ilona Andrews- Someone in my book club recommended her Innkeeper Chronicles as good comfort reads. It looks like she’s got a lot of other books, but I figure that’s a good place to start, since comfort is always needed!

Natalie Haynes- I’ve never been a fan of the Greek myths and classics but Madeline Miller has recently opened my mind to their potential. I know Natalie Haynes has written a lot based on them too, so I plan to check them out at some point. On my TBR: A Thousand Ships, and The Furies.

Stacey Halls-I’ve seen some of her books that look good the last few times I went to the library. I keep meaning to read them, but I’ve gone for other things (I can only carry so much!) On my TBR: Mrs. England, The Familiars

Grady Hendrix – For the past year, year and a half people in my book club have recommended Grady Hendrix as an author who is sometimes funny, sometimes scary, sometimes at the same time. On my TBR: The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires and The Final Girl’s Support Group.

Wendy Webb- Supposedly Webb is “Queen of the Northern Gothic” (according to her publicity anyway) and I love Gothic from any direction. On my TBR: The Fate of Mercy Alban, The Haunting of Brynn Wilder, and The Vanishing.

Constance Sayers- This author’s work looks like a fusion of historical fiction and fantasy, which is right up my ally! On my TBR: A Witch in Time and The Ladies of the Secret Circus.

Sarah Blake- I didn’t even realize that this was an author on the list, until I look at my TBR and saw several of her books on there! On my TBR: The Guest Book and Grange House.

Jess Kidd- This is another one I didn’t realize I wanted to read several books from. I remember adding Things in Jars to my TBR because it was compared with several books I really enjoyed (The Essex Serpent, The Book of Speculation). I must have looked the author up, because Mr. Flood’s Last Resort and Himself were added shortly thereafter.

  1. Those books by Constance Sayers that you highlighted look really good! I’ll have to keep an eye out for them Historical fantasy is a genre I’ve really been enjoying lately.

    I hope you enjoy whatever you pick up by T. Kingfisher! I ADORE her work. Even if I haven’t read all of it yet. And some of it I never will because it’s too horror-y… and speaking of horror-y, that goes for Grady Hendrix, too. I’ve been curious about his work, but too many people told me that since I don’t like horror, I probably won’t enjoy it. So I hope you enjoy his books and can tell me all about them! 🙂

    • Glad to hear that T. Kingfisher is worth reading. I’m hoping to get to some of her books very soon!

      I’ve been a little unclear as to exactly how “horrifying” Hendrix actually is. From what I’ve heard in book club there’s a good portion of humor in his work too. I’m OK with actual horror though it can get a bit much for me if it’s excessive. I’ll let you know where it falls on the genre spectrum though.

      • I’ve really enjoyed Kingfisher’s work a lot. (Also her MG books as Ursula Vernon, if you want fun, lighthearted MG books to read.)

        Thanks. Hendrix’ work sounds so fun. but also probably too much like true horror for me. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. I was just looking at A Thousand Ships on my mum’s bookshelf this morning and thinking I should borrow it – I’ve always enjoyed the Greek myths, but the more so when they’re given an interesting spin. Constance Sayers and T Kingfisher both get rave reviews from my cohort (I’ve read some of Kingfisher’s work as Ursula Vernon, and that was fab).
