Write Another G-D Book PLEASE! Top 10 Authors I Wish Would Write ANOTHER Book

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and The Bookish and was created by Jamie at the Perpetual Page Turner.

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

Patrick Rothfuss is really gnome

Also, Patrick Rothfuss is truly a gnome.

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

Why? Read A Northern Light and Revolution and you will know exactly why I’d love to read another YA book from Jennifer Donnelly.

5. JK Rowling

Expecto Patronum!

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

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

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.

About April (Books&Wine)

April is 30 years old and created Good Books And Good Wine. She works for a non-profit. April always has a book on hand. In her free time she can be found binge watching The Office with her husband and baby, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring her neighborhood.

  1. YES. JK Rowling needs to write something else -that series is so brilliant that I would love to see what else she could write 🙂

  2. They all sound very amazing. And I, too, I wonder what Harper Lee could have come up with next.

  3. I need more David Clement-Davies too! I don’t know anyone else who has read his books. I was looking forward to Scream of the White Bears, but I found out he wasn’t able to publish it yet. I’m sure it’s wonderful though.

  4. OOH, good call on Harper Lee! 🙂

    I didn’t include her on my list, but I definitely agree with you about Carrie Ryan – I really came to love her trilogy and some of those characters, especially from The Dark and Hollow Places were my FAVOURITES, so it’d be awesome for her to write another series or just another novel!

    I haven’t heard of some of the other authors/books on your list, but I’ll have to check them out!

  5. I finally ordered The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June and I’ll Be There over the weekend. I can’t wait to read them!

    I’d love to see what else J.K. Rowling and Suzanne Collins come up with. Here’s hoping they’ll come out with books sometime in the next few years.

  6. FINALLY! A list that doesn’t have Cassandra Clare or Stephanie Meyer!

    Personally I would love to see another YA book (or series) from Suzanne Collins sometime in the very near future.

    Fantstic list this week. I’m going to have to check out the books that I haven’t heard of very soon.

    Definitely agree with you about Jennifer Donnelley and Suzanne Collins! Not so much with J.K. Rowling though, as I think she’s getting a bit big headed. One second she’s going ‘maybe I’ll write another’, the next ‘just kidding!’, then, ‘I’m writing a MG’. It’s getting really confusing.She knows that whatever she writes will get published anyway, not that she needs to write ever again. I do wish she’d consider her millions of loyal fans during this debate though. AND WRITE ANOTHER GOD-DAMN BOOK. Okay. Maybe I agree just a little.

  8. I highly recommend the Gregor the Overlander series. I thought they would be really cheesy, but they aren’t, and they have just as much depth as the Hunger Games series. Fantastic.

  9. I need to read Jennifer Donnelly’s books asap! I have no idea how I forgot Suzanne Collins on my list…but I did. =/

  10. I’ve been avoiding the Gregor series because it seemed like it was middle grade and I rarely enjoyed middle grade even when I was in that age bracket… Have you started reading them yet? I’m wondering if I should give them a chance… *going through Suzanne Collins withdrawals*

  11. JKR could charge $100 for her next book and I would pay it, no questions asked. Still waiting for my acceptance letter to Hogwarts too.

    Harper Lee made it on my list too. She did write another novel but decided to shelf it before finishing. I can only imagine how amazing it might have been!

  12. I haven’t read a lot of these authors. If you are this anxious for new books from them, I suppose I should. Totally agree on JK Rowling and Harper Lee.

  13. Ginger @ GReads! says:

    More from Robin Benway would be EXCELLENT.

  14. Awesome picks. I am also convinced that J.K. Rowling is a real life wizard LOL. Happy Tuesday

    Check out my Top Ten list

  15. JK Rowling and Ruta Sepetys ALL THE WAY. Could you imagine JKR publishing another book?! It would be pure insanity.

  16. Great post! Love the list!

  17. I am so glad to see someone else with Carrie Ryan on their list! I can’t get enough of her! She did tweet the other day that she just turned in, not one, but TWO new books to her publisher! So excited! Great list!

    My Top Ten

  18. Great list. You reminded me that I need to read Revolution, I loved A Northern Light. Have you tried her other books…The Tea Rose?

    I would love J K Rowling to write something new.

  19. I just recently read Carrie Ryan’s novel, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, and I LOVED it. I can’t wait to pick up the next book and see what else she has in store for me. I mean, any author that can make me LIKE zombies is a winner in my book!

  20. Great list! Agree with Harper Lee and JK Rowling, of course! 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by!

  21. I seriously want to know what JK Rowling and Suzanne Collins would come up with next. I mean, what is in their brains?! I’m dying to know! Whatever they want to write, I’ll read.

  22. LOL at the Harper Lee picture. your caption cracked me up.

    I was going to do this one but I could only think of 3. you just listed 3 more I should have thought of. Jk rowling and Suzanne Collins for sure….

    but Carrie Ryan. I have never been into zombies. hated them, that’s in part to all those old school corny ass 80’s horror flicks my husband would make me watch. So I had this loating for anything zombie, but Carrie Ryan changed me. I read those books, more like devoured them. I’m dying to get my hands on whatever she puts out next. I hope it’s soon!

  23. I confess I really didn’t like The Forest of Hands and Teeth, not just cos zombies aren’t my thing, I was more disappointed in the storytelling.

    I can’t believe I forgot about Rowling when I was doing my list! I’ve seen her on almost all the lists I’ve visited so far today and she absolutely has to get a new book out!

    And I loved Rothfuss’ first book, excellent excellent fantasy, but I’ve been holding off on starting The Wise Man’s Fear, partly because it’s so big and heavy but also because I’m afraid of the long wait to come afterwards!

    Here’s my list.

  24. I think Robin Benway is hard at work on her next book – yay! Loved Audrey, Wait.
    And I would also love another book from Suzanne Collins and Jennifer Donnelly soon.
    Great picks!

  25. Oh, Collins and Rowling, of course – but I didn’t even know David Clement-Davies HAD another book! I neeeeeeeed iiiiiiiit.

  26. Definitely an eclectic group of authors you’ve got there. I do wonder if JK will ever write another book? Or series? Dare to dream…

  27. We have a few authors in common here, which means they OBVIOUSLY need to get on it. And you know how you are finally getting around to A Game of Thrones etc? I need to get around to The Name of the Wind. I’ve had a copy of it for ages and just never got to it. I’m doing it this year! I am!
    Also, Revolution is sitting at the very top of one of my piles, staring at me. I want to read that one soon, too! I love the whole idea of it. Yay!

  28. Nice picks! I’d like to see the Harper Lee thing happen, hah.

  29. This is a list I can totally stand behind and support! I just finished A Northern Light at the end of the year, and of course would love more Rowling and Collins. And Rothfuss? Damn strait. I heart that man-gnome.

  30. HARPER LEE!! OH MY GOD CAN WE BE BEST FRIENDS NOW? Lol. Ever since I first read To Kill a Mockingbird in eighth grade, I’ve lamented over the fact that Harper Lee only wrote one book. I would have LOVED to see more of her writing!

  31. Harper Lee wrote the only book my middle daughter has been able to actually see herself in and really feel like a book spoke to her. I would give anything if Lee would write again.

  32. I loved Between Shades of Grey and would love to see more from her as well. Rowling and Lee are showing up on lots of these lists. I’m sure lots of us wonder why Lee only published the one novel.

  33. I really feel like I need to be reading Patrick Rothfuss.
    I really feel like I’m missing out.
