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 Ten Popular Authors We’ve Never Read
Although they are popular, we just have not gotten around to them (or have no interest!).
1. Stephen King
The movie It scared me as a child, so I think I fear his books.
2. Nicholas Sparks
I own several of his books, but I have never tried them. I can’t tell you why! (Kellee, I stole this one from you.)
3. J.K. Rowling
Don’t hate me. I read a page of Harry Potter and didn’t continue on. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t have a strong desire to continue. I should probably give the books a better try.
4. Lemony Snicket
To be fair, I read Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler. But I haven’t read any of the books under his Lemony Snicket pen name.
5. C. S. Lewis
I think I saw a movie of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I have never read the books. I’d love to read them to Henry, though! Perhaps, I will set this as a goal.
1. Tom Clancy
This is bad… I like his books as movies, but have no need to read his books.
2. John Grisham
I am almost tempted to read his Theodore Boone books since I have some students who love them, but I’m just not sure…
3. George R.R. Martin
Eh. Even people who love Game of Thrones haven’t been able to convince me that I will; however, someone could sell me on it one day.
4. Nicholas Sparks
Romance novels are already not one of my favorites and romance that will make me cry… no interest.
5. Jodi Picoult
I actually have some Picoult books that I really want to read, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
