Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

Top Ten Tuesday 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

  1. 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…
  2. 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!)
  3. 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…
  4. 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.
  5. Daphne du Maurier
    Rebecca was absolutely amazing. Must read more!
  6. 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 ♥
  7. Kōbō Abe
    The Woman in the Dunes gave me the creeps. Hence I need to read more.
  8. 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).
  9. Philip K. Dick
    Because Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was awesome.
  10. 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…

    1. Will definitely try out Room some time, thanks for the recommendation! 😀 I’ve got a few other books by Donoghue on my shelf (The Sealed Letter and Kissing The Witch) that I’ll probably read first though…

  1. I’ve only read one Stephen King novel (11/22/63), but I’m wary of reading more because I’m actually a big scaredy cat and I don’t know if I can handle horror! I’ve never read Du Maurier, but I’ve got an old copy of The House on the Strand so I am planning to read that sometime.

  2. Looks like we share some favourite authors!
    I also want to read more of P.K. Dick… just become it never seems I read enough of him! Same thing with Terry Pratchett!
    I also want to read more S. King. I read half of “It” and… dropped it. It was good, but simply too long and too slow. I want to finish though. I also want to read Carrie.
    I also want to read more Emma Donoghue, I have “the room” on my shelf, waiting for me. Finally, I also have a Kōbō Abe to read since *someone* send it to me :)))

    I also want to read more Jasper Fforde.

  3. I agree with you on many of these authors. I’ve only read Dumas’ Count of Mont Cristo (when I long to read The three musketeers and the Man in the Iron Mask as well). Stephen King I can take or leave, and while I’ve read many by DuMaurier, Rebecca is the only one I loved. But, let’s do more Kobe Abe and Ryu Murakami for sure!

    1. What did you think of the Count of Monte Cristo? It’s one of my all time favourite books (hence my shame for not having read anything else by Dumas..)

      Any ideas on your next Kobo Abe and Ryu Murakami? 😀

  4. Haha, for a moment I thought you really haven’t read more than one Stephen King book. (How one can just stop after reading one of his books? You will definitely crave more and MORE. Unless that one was Dreamcatcher, which I am pretty sure is one of his lowest points. Or well, if you hate “horror”/scary fantasy, but in that case you probably wouldn’t be picking up a King book in the first place)

    Oh yes, I should probably read more Dumas too. But, but the Count was so perfect… nothing can top that…. so instead of picking up another of his books, I always end up rereading it.

    Yesss, read more Philip K. Dick!! And I’d also “recommend” Audition (by Ryu Murakami)
