Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Read Once

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This is a list that makes me so thankful for Goodreads. I think it would be impossible for me to think of 10 authors off the top of my head, and 10 authors that I only read once from. Talk about haaaard. So shout-out to Goodreads for helping a girl out.

Tiffany Schmidt
I only have read Bright Before Sunrise, a cute contemporary, and her next book, Like a Breath, sounds SO GOOD. I'm not crazy about the cover, but I'm looking forward to reading more Schmidt! 

Shelley Coriell
Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe was very fun. In the midst of stress and end-of-the-year activities, it was just what I needed. Now I need more Coriell in my life, starting with Rebel Blue.

Emery Lord
Open Road Summer pleasantly surprised me. EXTREMELY pleasant. (Thank you, Ms. Lord.) So now I'm impatiently waiting for her next book.

Rosamund Hodge
Since I loved Cruel Beauty, I'm not sure why I'm not reading Hodge's novella. However, I'll have plenty of chances to read more of her books since I already see a few upcoming ones on Goodreads!

Lauren Miller
I fully planned on reading Free to Fall RIGHT as it came out since I adored Parellel and craved more of Miller's book. Why I haven't yet, I don't know.

Cammie McGovern | Cristin Terrill | Marie Rutkoski | Anne Blankman | Joy N. Hensley

These are all authors I've read once, but unlike the other five, they don't have another book out or even a cover for their next book. They have some descriptions of them on Goodreads, but that's all we're given. And it's making me impatient. 

What author do you want to read more than just one book of, but haven't yet? 


  1. Gilded Ashes is high on my list, because I loved Cruel Beauty too. I'm also looking forward to all her upcoming releases.

  2. Great list. Chloe sounds like a good book. I've heard good things about it.

    1. I'm a new Emery Lord fan and won't be stopping ;)

  4. I seriously need to read Parallel, and I'm glad to see you really enjoyed it! I haven't read many contemporaries this year, so I haven't read any of these, along with Cruel Beauty!

    1. YOU DO. Parellel was fantastic, I couldn't stop thinking about it.

  5. Nice list! And I love the graphics! You know Marie Rutkoski has another YA novel (The Shadow Society) and a middle grade thing already published, right?

    1. Thanks, Kel! I do! I completely forgot to put it there.

  6. I haven't read these authors yet but I want to: Emery Lord, Tiffany Schmidt and Rosamund Hodge.

  7. I've read Goodbye, Rebel Blue, but not Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe - and the former is wonderful. It's just as fun as you make the author's other book sound, and it's thought-provoking as well. I hope you love it as much as I did! I need more from Anne Blankman and Cammie McGovern too - impatience is setting it.

  8. I do that a lot too...plan on reading a book as soon as it gets released but get sidetracked by other shinies. I love your list...especially Tiffany Schmidt and Emery Lord and Rosamund Hodge. I've actually read everything already released by these authors, and yes, you absolutely need to read the rest of their works. Oh, and Marie Rutkoski's...I enjoyed The Shadow Society by her quite a bit.

  9. You HAVE to read Free to Fall!! It's one of my favorite books of the year. Seriously so good.
    I'm ridiculously excited for Hold Me Like a Breath, The Start of Me and You, The Winner's Crime, and the second Prisoner of Night and Fog too.
    Great list, lady!
