[TBR List] Ten Books By My Favorite Authors

This week on Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, we’re sharing ten books from our TBR lists written by our favorite authors. Surprisingly, this was a difficult list to arrange. Most of my favorite authors are relatively new, or I’ve already read the author’s entire catalog, eek! Even so, it was a great exercise to review my TBR, and I even managed to shake out a few dust-covered TBRs from the stack.

The Girl With Glass Feet by Ali Shaw: Written by the author of The Trees, one of my favorite magical realism books, The Girl With Glass Feet follows a young girl as she explores the depths of a mystical island, full of magical creatures and icy secrets.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman: A treasured children’s tale for many, I’m sad to say this is one of the last novels I’ve left to read by Neil Gaiman.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver: Barbara Kingsolver is coming to Houston for a reading in October, and what better way to prepare than read one of her most popular novels!

The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Potzsch: Potzsch’s latest novel, The Castle of Kings was truly unputdownable,  so I’m hoping to read The Hangman’s Daughter sometime this fall. After all, a historical thriller set in medieval Germany spells the perfect Halloween read to me.

The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien: Reading the last book will be bittersweet, but then there’s always The Silmarillion.

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens: Since getting back into reading, I’ve tried to read at least one of his works a year. I was hoping to read David Copperfield this year, but after reading Olivia Twist by Lorie Langon, I’m very tempted to reread Oliver Twist. Amazingly, it’s been over ten years since I first read it!

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood: After reading The Blind Assassin and Hag-Seed, I’m interested in reading more from Margaret Atwood…. and seeing if the Hulu series lives up to the hype.

7190 30334163 7184 54499

The d’Artagnan Romances by Alexandre Dumas: While my friends were reading Pride and Prejudice, I read The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After, Book 2 of The d’Artagnan Romances. In all, there are SEVEN follow-up novels to The Three Musketeers, with The Man in the Iron Mask being the last, and perhaps the most famous of them all.

267869 36342330

Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn: I loved reading the Veronica Speedwell series last year, and I expect the Lady Julia Grey series to be just as good. Besides, my name IS Julia, how could I not like it?

The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas: Okay, so I ran out of books to list, but I’m really excited to read the next installment of the Lady Sherlock series, out October 2nd!
