Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog

Now a few of the authors books below I have tried to read, I just never finished them. And a few of the authors below I would like to read, eventually! And I know a few of you may never tweet to me again after reading this post, and finding out that I haven't read these books before.

Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read

Now let's get the biggest author out of the way! 
1. J. K. Rowling
Yes, I have not read Harry Potter. Do I want to? Eventually, yes. There's just a lot of pressure with reading it now that I don't want to right now.

I have tried Divergent and I didn't really like it... *runs from angry mob* There was a lot of violence (I knew there would be, but if I love a book enough I'm able to get past it.)  in it and I wasn't loving the book enough to keep pushing through it.

Now, this is one I would like to try eventually! I have heard A LOT of good things about her books and would like to try and read them eventually! :)

4.   Rick Riordan
I got the first Percy Jackson book from the library and plan on trying it! I think I might like it! :)

5. Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games... I may try it eventually, but I don't feel like crying uncontrollably right now.

6. Jeff Kinney
I have heard good things about the Wimpy Kid books and bad things, but it has just never been high on my TBR pile.

7. Tahereh Mafi
You all (Or at least 99% of you reading this right now.) LOVE this authors trilogy, and I know you all want me to read this, and I might eventually!

8. Kiera Cass
I would like to read this authors trilogy! :)

9. Cassandra Clare
I think I tried one of her books and didn't like it, and I know a lot of you like it, but I guess you all know I'm weird by now.

I would like to try his books, but from what I have been told, if I don't like to cry a lot, this authors books may not be ones I would like.

I know a lot of you will tell me I need to read these books! Let the peer pressure begin.
What popular authors have you not read? :)


  1. Start with Marcus Zusak. He is amazing.

    1. I have heard that! I need to try one of his books eventually! :)

  2. I hated The Book Thief, and am completely uninterested in attempting any of Mr. Zusak's other books. It left such a bad taste in my mouth, even if it might be possible that he was way out of his usual genre and just didn't know how to write historical properly. I haven't read Rowling, Collins, or Roth either, because I stay far away from books with massive hype.

    My TTT

    1. Aww, I'm sorry to read you didn't like his book. :( I always feel a little nervous to read a book that has a lot of hype, just because I'm worried it won't live up to it!

  3. Markus Zusak is amazing! The Book Thief was beautiful and sad, but if you're not in the mood to sob, try his other book I Am The Messenger.

    My TTT-

    1. Thank you! I may need to try that one! :)

  4. We have many alike (I got Rowling out of the way too!), but I have to say, once again, read Collins!

    1. Yay for another person who has not read Harry Potter! I'm not the only one! :)

      And yeah... I know I need to read her books... *blushes* Eventually! :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment!
