This week’s theme is:
Top 10 Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book.
Some of these authors write G-D slow, some have only written one book, some seem like they will never write another book, and some I am on edge waiting for what’s next.
1. Patrick Rothfuss
Why? Remember the wait for The Wise Man’s Fear after reading The Name Of The Wind? I feel like the wait for Doors Of Stone – the third book in the Kingkiller Chronicles series is going to be SO LONG. I mean, you guys, it was YEARS waiting for Wise Man’s Fear, and I get that Rothfuss wants to write an awesome book, but seriously just WRITE ANOTHER, dude.
2. Harper Lee
Why? If you only ever publish one book and that book is To Kill A Mockingbird, I think you got lucky. With the gorgeous prose and cutting themes of TKaM, I can’t help but wonder what other books from Harper Lee would have been like.
3. David Clement-Davies
Why? I’ve devoured pretty much all of David Clement-Davies books, especially his animal based ones and Scream of The White Bears was set to be published in the US, but then it never was and there’s no page on amazon or anything and I can’t help but think, why not self publish so we can FINALLY read it here.
4. Jennifer Donnelly
5. JK Rowling
Why? I am convinced that Rowling is a real life wizard just humoring us muggles with TRUE stories. So, I bet she could do some spell and write a whole new book set in another world with vivid details and entrance us all over again.
6. Suzanne Collins
Why? Hey after we met the boy with the bread and Katniss set our world on fire, I think it’s reasonable to expect great things from Suzanne Collins in the future – but for now I suppose I can make due with starting the Gregor The Overlander series.
7. Carrie Ryan
Why? DUDE, Carrie Ryan is the zombie queen and after the Hands And Teeth trilogy I want to see what else she has up her sleeve (unicorns!!) bahahaha.
8. Robin Benway
Why? I’ve read both Audrey Wait and The Extraordinary Secrets Of April, May And June. Benway infuses wit into her books, and I cracked up while reading both. I WANT MORE OF HER WIT TO CRACK ME UP, is that truly too much to ask?
9. Ruta Sepetys
Why? Between Shades Of Gray absolutely broke my heart AND taught me about a period in history that I am not an expert on. Crying and learning – what a fabulous combination. I can’t wait to be shattered all over again by Sepetys’s work.
10. Holly Goldberg Sloan
Why? Riddle, guys, Riddle and Sam. Girl excels at creating characters who worm their way into my heart and stay there FOR A VERY LONG TIME. I can’t wait to read her next book.
