Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful book-lovers at the Broke and the Bookish. The topic this week is a free entry on school-related books. But I’ve had last week’s topic that I didn’t participate in kicking around in my head all week. That topic was officially books that have been on my TBR since I started blogging.
To be honest, I don’t remember what was on my TBR before I started blogging 12 years ago, except for The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pisan, a medieval classic which I don’t think I get enough sleep to read just now. But since I’ve been blogging I have built up quite a list of authors that I’m sure I’d like but have never gotten around to reading during that time – not one book (not including the many, many authors where I’ve read some of their work and want to read much, much more.)
- Andrea K. Höst
- Connie Willis
- Elizabeth Marie Pope
- Erin Bow
- Helen Oyeyemi (who’s generally considered literary rather than fantasy, but this sounded like it was playing with fairy tale themes)
- Mary Robinette Kowal
- N.K. Jemison
- Sarah Beth Durst
- Sarah Kuhn (OK, cheating a little here, as I just discovered her this month. Allowing it owing to the dearth of Asian and Asian-American fantasy writers on this list, and because it looks awesome.)
- V.E. Schwab
And this is just scratching the surface… What authors are you longing to try? Who haven’t you seen here that you think I would love?
