Top Ten Tuesday: Why haven’t I tried these yet?



Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular blog meme, Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share:

February 3: Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t/Want To Read From X Genre (for example I feel like I’m pretty well read in contemporary YA but there are some STAPLES I can’t believe I haven’t read. Or if you just want to books you WANT to read in a particular genre..not necessarily long overdue)

I’m pretty well read in the paranormal genre and decided to do a quick search to see what authors I haven’t gotten around to trying yet.  I was both surprised by how many authors I’ve read and how many I’ve yet to try.  So here are some series and authors I hope to get around to reading in the future.

Ten Paranormal Authors I haven’t tried yet.

  1. Full Moon Rising (Riley Jenson Guardian #1)  Keri Arthur:  I even have several of this author’s books sitting up on my to-read bookcase.
  2. Touch the Dark (Cassandra Palmer, #1)  Karen Chance: Another series where I own the first book but haven’t worked it into the reading mix yet.
  3. Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1) Ilona Andrews:  This author is less familiar to me but somehow made it to my to-read list on Goodreads.  I have a few GR friends that gave it high marks as well.  Perhaps I’ll borrow this title from the library sometime.
  4. Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) Richelle Mead:  I know, I know, way behind the boat for this one, they even made a movie of it that has come out on DVD.  It sits up on my bookcase waiting for its turn.
  5. Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, #1) Larissa Ione:  I keep seeing this author everywhere; bookstores, reviews, etc.  I have yet to try her books yet.
  6. If Angels Burn (Darkyn, #1) Lynn Viehl:  Another one I own and haven’t gotten around to trying.
  7. Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) Lili St. Crow:  This author I just found today, but she looks to be popular with several of my G.R. Friends.
  8. Kitty and the Midnight Hour (Kitty Norville #1)  Carrie Vaughn:  This author has been on my radar for a while.  I keep going back and forth about picking up one of her books though.
  9. Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling, #1)  Nalini Singh:  Another one that I keep going back and forth about if I should try her or not. I do have two of her series on my to-read lists over on Goodreads though.
  10. Once Bitten, Twice Shy (Jaz Parks, #1)  Jennifer Radin: This one looks interesting after re-reading the synopsis.  Perhaps this one will have to move up the priority list.


There you have my list for this week,  if one of the above authors is one of your favs feel free to lobby for them in the comments.  Know of another staple in the paranormal genre that I should try let me know that too.

  1. I’ve not really read a lot in the paranormal genre, but I would like to read Vampire Academy and something by Ilona Andrews – just not sure yet what. Have you read Soulless by Gail Carriger? It’s what I’d call historical urban fantasy, but there’s lots of vampires and werewolves and ghosts in it and I love the series. Hope you enjoy these books when you get to read them.


    1. I’m going to give book one a try at least. If I struggle though I will DNF. I’m still avoiding YA lately for some reason. Something tells me though that isn’t the title to get me back into them though.

  2. I don’t read a lot of paranormal really although from your list I’ve read a couple of Ilona Andrews, Vampire Academy and also 2/3 by Karen Chance. I quite liked them all. They’re more what I would call in between books for me. Depends what you’re looking for. Vampire Academy definitely had a very YA feel to it. I liked the character Rose as she was quite flawed. Karen Chance – well those books were a bit, mmm, how to say it – well, to be blunt, sexy – in a good way. Ilona Andrews – read Burn for Me – it’s very good
    Lynn :D


    1. Isn’t that the way it always goes, someday I’ll read it. What I need to do is stop adding to my to-read list and pick up one of these instead. Thanks for stopping by!
