Making this list was honestly an eye-opener to me. Turns out I have tons of books on my shelves by authors I have read nothing of. But if I really enjoyed an author, I have rarely stuck with reading only one book… So making this list was actually a challenge (which surprised me).
Ten Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
- Elizabeth Knox
I read The Vintner’s Luck and I absolutely adore it. It’s become one of my favourite books of all time. But I haven’t read its sequel, The Angel’s Cut yet, and neither have I read anything else by Knox…
- Terry Pratchett
Only read Good Omens (cowritten with Neil Gaiman). I am convinced I will LOVE Pratchett’s humour and I do have a few of his books (Discworld) on my shelves… Sooonnnn! (Definitely reading The Hogfather for Christmas!)
- Alexandre Dumas
The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favourite classics, but I admit his books are huge and a bit intimidating. And that’s why I haven’t read anything else yet…
- Stephen King
Putting King on here isn’t entirely fair. I am 100% sure I read plenty of his books when I was a child (having finished all the interesting books in the children’s department of my local library, I soon moved on to literature for grownups haha)… but I don’t remember anything! Last year I read Mile 81 though and I definitely want to read more.
- Daphne du Maurier
Rebecca was absolutely amazing. Must read more!
- Emma Donoghue
Read Stir-fry which was cute. I know her books generally don’t get very high ratings, but we have to cherish writers of proper lesbian fiction ♥
- Kōbō Abe
The Woman in the Dunes gave me the creeps. Hence I need to read more.
- Edogawa Rampo
The man whose name sounds like Edgar Allan Poe. I loved Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination (and I highly recommend it to everyone else).
- Philip K. Dick
Because Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was awesome.
- Ryū Murakami
In the Miso Soup was a disappointment, but I’m convinced I can like Ryū Murakami’s work. So I want to give him another try…
