This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is focused on popular authors we’ve never read. Lists like this usually make me sad because I tend to get thrown into a “BUT HOW WILL I READ IT ALL!?!” panic, but these are all authors I’m planning on making a serious effort to read. I mean, I own books by every single one of them. I have multiples of a few, so things are getting dire.
I have a soft spot for anything Bourdain does on TV, so even though I’m not much of a foodie, I have a feeling I would love reading his books.
I heard so many great things about The Absolutist and absolutely love the premise of The House of Special Purpose, so I’m not sure how I haven’t picked up one of Boyne’s books yet.
I know, I know. I have three Bryson books sitting on my shelves right now. The fact that I haven’t read any of them totally baffles me, too.
I know that her writing is incredible, but I’m always afraid that I’m just going to be sucked into this black hole of emotion if I start reading one Didion’s books. And it never feels like the right time for that.
Daphne du Maurier
Rebecca has been on my list forever, which is why I added it to my TBR Pile Challenge this year. It will be read.
I have copies of both The Gone-Away World and Angelmaker, but for some strange reason I get super intimidated whenever I go to start reading either of them and end up picking something else. I’m almost positive I will love them, I just need to do it.
Pretty much the same story as Nick Harkaway, but I think I’m a little worried about genre here. Still super intrigued, though.
I’m just going to hang my head in shame and walk away. I don’t even know how this happened. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
Gilead has been on my shelf for ages, recommended by dozens of people, but I never get the urge to choose it over something else. I need to.
