I need to read more than one book from these authors . . .

toptentuesday2Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme which I take part in occasionally. It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week a new topic is presented. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with!


I’ve only read one book from these authors, but I really need to read more of their books (in no particular order & links are to Goodreads):

1. Kate Elliott–I read Cold Magic and loved it. Ms. Elliott has written quite a few books and I own at least one more by her.

2. Susanna Kearsley–I listened to The Winter Sea. One of my favorite books in 2014 and I know I own three or four more of hers.

3. James S. A. Corey–I liked Leviathan Wakes and would really like to read the second book–Caliban’s War.

4. Martha WellsThe Cloud Roads is one my favorite books in 2014 and I’m eager to read the second book in this series.

5. Django Wexler–I own at least one other book by Mr. Wexler besides John Golden: Freelance Debugger.

6. Marko KloosTerms of Enlistment is a favorite book of 2013 and the second book was published in early 2014.

7. Brandon Sanderson–I listened to The Emperor’s Soul and many other bloggers have recommended Elantris to me.

8. Debra Doyle and James D. MacDonald–I really like The Price of the Stars, a science fiction space opera book. There’s a second book in the series.

9. Deborah Harkness–I read A Discovery of Witches at the end of 2013 and love it. The whole trilogy is already published.

10. Julie Cross–Another book I love–Letters to Nowhere by Julie Cross. I’d really like to read more of her books.

Do you have any of those one-book authors from whom you need to read more books?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. Love your list! So many authors on there that I would completely agree with. Kate Elliott and Martha Wells are both authors from whom I’ve only read one book and would like to check out more. In Elliott’s case, I probably didn’t mesh with Cold Magic as well as you, but I’d love to give her Crossroads books a shot.


    1. Thanks, Mogsy. I don’t know which Elliott book I will try next. I know I have Jaran so maybe it will be that one. I really don’t know too much about her various other series.


  2. I really want to give Deborah Harkness a try. I’ve heard nothing but raves for the trilogy. I swear I’ve heard about Julie Cross and Kate Elliot before. I might even own one or two. I’ll definitely have to check them out!


  3. Kate Elliott is on my list too! I thought Cold Magic was brilliant, absolutely LOVED the magical system. Love the whole industrial revolution time period – I thought it was a great contrast to the fantastical elements.


    1. The Winter Sea is such a good book and I’m quite sure I’d like her other books, too. I hope you like her writing once you get a chance to read a book by her.


  4. You do NEED to read more of their books 😀

    I loved Kate Elliot’s JARAN, though I stalled a bit halfway through COLD MAGIC – need to pick that up again. I’m just about to read Martha Wells’ THE CLOUD ROAD because of your recs, though I really loved her Ile-Rien books. And I hope you do finish Debra Doyle & James D MacDonald’s Mageworld trilogy, because there are some major twists…


    1. Glad to know you loved Jaran, Li. And I really want to get back to the Mageworld–glad to know there are twists. I like that! I hope you lie The Cloud Road. It’s hard to pin down what I loved so much about it. I’ll be interested in how you like it.


  5. Susannah Kearsley and Kate Elliott are both authors I’ve been wanting to start! I have books by both of them; I just need to find the time. Brandon Sanderson, too. And you know I love Deborah Harkness.
