Every Tuesday The Broke and the Bookish they have these link-ups called Top Ten Tuesdays (and some of these upcoming ones look F.U.N so I might jump into this link-up somehow and do them 😛 )
Anyways. On with the post!
So here are the TOP TEN popular YA Authors I have NEVER EVER read.
Oh yeah, and I admit I looked up ‘Famous YA Authors’ on Goodreads but I was surprised at how many YA Authors I have read books from anyways..Now onto the Top Ten List.
1. Cassandra Clare.
I’ve been told that Mortal Instruments and that it’s really good, but I will be honest. The reason I haven’t read anything by her (mainly Mortal Instruments) is because I truthfully have no interest in reading it.
2. Mark Zusak
*GASP* I know, I know. I’m a terrible human being for not reading things from this author. I’m so behind… Though if this is any help to you all loosing your respect for me (or something drastic like that) ‘The Book Thief’ is on my To Be Read List and on my ‘Movies To Be Watched’ list…after I finish reading the book of course 😉
3. Rick Riordan
Okay, I know. I fell slightly ashamed for not reading anything from Rick Riordan…. I don’t know why I haven’t I mean the whole Percy Jackson Series is right down my alley, genre wise… I fell ashamed. I might have to redeem myself and fit them onto my Reading List. (I’m constantly adding more and more books to that list, it’s insane XD )
4.Orson Scott Card
Yet again, another author who’s book I meant to read (Ender’s Game) so I could watch the movie as well (cause I have a strict. ‘Have to read the book first if a book for the said movie exists’ policy.)
Gosh. As this list goes on I’m feeling more and more ashamed.
I will admit. I am ashamed for not reading any of John Green’s novels but I will admit that….I am not interested in his novel…Even ‘The Fault in Our Stars’…. *feels more ashamed and worried about what others will think about my reading choices*
6. Stephanie Meyer
Okay. Not ashamed about this one. Two reasons. 1) I’m not a fan of Vampires (Main reason I don’t like Twilight) and 2) VAMPIRES. DONT. SPARKLE!
7. Neil Gaiman
Okay. SO you know that ‘book before movie policy’ I mentioned? Yeah totally failed that one. I did NOT realize Coraline was a book….until I watched the movie. I have heard Neil Gaiman’s books are pretty good (well a few of them anyways…and I should probably read ‘Coraline’ so I feel better about not following my own ‘Book before Movie’ policy…)
8. Christopher Paolini
I have so many friends on me to read the Eragon series but honestly I wasn’t too interested. Still not sure if I am…Feeling slightly ashamed here cause people are telling me I’m missing out on something I’m missing out. (someone PLEASE tell me what I missing here so I can decide wether or not to read it.)
9. Marie Lu
Yet again ANOTHER author whose books are on my ‘To Read’ list… Too many books/authors SO little time.
10. J.K Rowling
Someone slap me across the face with all 7 books! I know! I know! I have NOT read the books. Though the way I go on about Harry Potter and stuff one would think I HAVE read them. But I have not. (Guys I went to a Harry Potter exhibit last week with all the props and costumes from the movies!
Yet again. Broke that rule I made but my parents told me I wasn’t allowed to read the books but could watch the movies but now I am allowed to read the Harry Potter books and plan to do just that…This year. Percy Jackson will come after the Harry Potter Books.
So this is my list of YA Authors I have NEVER read…A list I am very ashamed about. Oh well 😛 This was fun to do/make anyways.
Hope you enjoyed this post.
Until Next Time (For sure next Tuesday for the next Link-up post)
