Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.
Today’s Topic: Top Authors We’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
The one book was so good, we need to get our hands on more!
1. Classic: Harper Lee
I know I am cheating, but really, why can’t she write more books? I would read them all!
2. Professional Development: Kelly Gallagher
I loved Readicide, and I hear that Deeper Reading is more practical and useful, so I need to get my hands on it!
3. Young Adult: Janne Teller
I thought Nothing was absolutely brilliant. I would love to read more books by her, but I am afraid of being disappointed! I hold her in such high esteem!
4. Children’s: Deborah Wiles
Now that I’ve discovered Freedom Summer, I am eager to read Revolution and her other books.
5. Adult: Anne Lamott
Bird by Bird is a great book that has stuck with me through the years. I’ve heard from many people that Operating Instructions is a great book for new moms. You hear that, Kellee? That is us!
Honorable Mention (because I feel inadequate if I don’t do what Kellee does): R. J. Palacio. I didn’t include a middle grade author because I was only allowed five selections, but I loved Wonder and would love to read more!
1. Matt de la Pena
I have met Matt de la Pena a few times, and he is such a nice and intelligent person. I have only read The Living though, so I know I need to read all of his books (and I know Ricki loves them as well).
2. Michael Harmon
Under the Bridge has been a pretty big hit with my 8th grade boys over the last couple of years (and I liked it too), so I would love to see what his other books are like.
3. Leslea Newman
October Mourning was beautiful. I look forward to reading more by her.
4. Markus Zusak
Although I have read The Book Thief, I hear often that I should read I Am the Messenger.
5. Allan Wolf
The Watch That Ends the Night is one of my favorite novels-in-verse, and when I met Allan Wolf I loved his passion. I will definitely be reading more of his books.
Honorable Mentions. Jay Asher, Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Gary Schmidt, Meg Rosoff, Patricia McCormick
