Top Ten Tuesday: Only read once.



Welcome to another contribution the wildly popular blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week they ask us to share top ten lists on the following: September 16: Top Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More.  I was surprised by how many books I could come up with for this list.  If I like a series or author I tend to stick with them until I read all the titles available.  So several of these authors are ones that only have one book out, but there are a couple of series/authors that just got away from me (I’ll let you know which is which).  So here they are the authors that I’ve only read one book of but would really like to read more.

  1. The Martian Andy Weir:  This book was AMAZING.  Have you added it to your to-read list yet.  NO?!  Go do it now, I’ll wait.  I am still singing the praises of this book to library patrons and people I meet in laundry mats or book stores.  I am definitely going to be reading more by this author if he ever publishes anything else.   So this is one of the cases where I have only read one book because there is all there is to read.
  2. Angel Kin (Angel Assassins, #1) Tricia Skinner:  This is another one where I have to wait for another book to come out before I can read another title by this author.  Angel Kin was the first book in her series, but it looks like I might not have to wait long, Goodreads tells me that the next title is due out in November.
  3. Fury (The Cure, #1-3) Charlotte McConaghy:  Read the first book by this Australian author for review from Net Galley and now I need to wait for more to be released in America or for her to write more, not sure the case for this author.  Enjoyed what I’ve read so far, it was thought provoking and I want to see what the author does next with her world.
  4. State of Grace Elizabeth Davies: All the books are out in this series, but I just haven’t worked them into my schedule… I want to see how the story ends though, I will eventually get around to reading the rest.
  5. The Gargoyle Andrew Davidson: This book was AMAZING too.  Again go add this to your reading list, right now.  Such a beautiful story about love, all kinds of love too.  At times this was a difficult read, very graphic, but so worth it.  It reached right in my chest and ripped out my heart.  The story was expertly craved and woven with many different tales and time periods to present the reader with an amazing read.  Again though, this is the only book the author has written.  I so hope he writes more.
  6. Yesterday's Kin Nancy Kress: This is an award-winning author and I could see why from what I’ve read.  She has actually published quite a bit and I’m going to eventually get around to reading more by Ms. Kress.
  7. Past My Defenses (Taming the Pack, #1) Wendy Sparrow:  I really liked this shifter story and hope the author continues the series soon.
  8. The Revealed Jessica Hickam:  This book had mixed reviews, but I liked it.  Author gets bonus cool points for being connected to Star Trek: Into Darkness.  I hope she continues writing though, or at least finishes up this series.
  9. Darkfever (Fever, #1)  Karen Marie Moning:  I know, I am so behind with this author.  I think the series is even finished now…  I read the first book liked it, didn’t love it, but liked it.  Moved on to something else and never returned.  I have book two in my possession so I will be giving one more title a chance before I decide if I am going to read the complete series or not.
  10. Tempest Rising (Jane True, #1) Nicole Peeler:  Read the first book of her series and then didn’t continue, kind of like with Moning.  I’m going to continue someday, or maybe not.  We will see.


Crack in the Curtain  Alright, bonus book this week.  How can I not?   Yes, it is shameless promotion of my husband’s book, but it is my blog and I’ll do what I want.  This is Selatin’s first book and I really enjoyed it.  Little rough in spots, but a good story.  I think the author has potential and look forward to seeing what he does in his next book.  Just thought I would also mention I am giving away a signed copy of this book over in the giveaway tab on the right side of the page or click on the word Giveaway to go enter.  Entry closes Sept 20, 2014.
