Hi everyone and welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Today’s prompt is...Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre.
At first, I thought this was way hard. My least favorite question anyone ever asks is “Oh, you like books? What’s your favorite book?” Haha. Like I could pick a single favorite!
First, I thought I would share my favorite books ever. And that quickly died because I love too many books. Seriously, I came up with 20 in less than a minute.
Next, I thought I would try my favorite stand alone novels. No series (and there are too many wonderful series that I love out there!) Just books that have a story just in a single book. But that quickly got too long as well.
Finally, I tried again with favorite books whose authors only published one novel. Now this got hard! Some novelists that I love a single book from actually have written several! Surprisingly, I need to read a lot more by some of my favorite authors. Time to add to the TBR 🙂 All the books I list below are the only ones I have read from that author.
So here it is–my top 10 all time favorite books whose authors I should read more of. Enjoy!
*Links from titles lead to my reviews of the novels.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak // I absolutely love this book. I want to review it here one day. I feel like I forgot that Zusak has published other books.
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford // This is a recent favorite of mine. I also recently learned he has written other books. Need to check them out!
The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George // I discovered that this is actually a pen name and this author has written dozens of books under various names.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr // One of my favorite WWII novels ever. And apparently not his only novel!
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee // This has been a favorite of mine since I read it in high school. I am still debating if I want to read Go Set a Watchman or if it will hinder my views of the characters in the original.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott // I actually really want to read more by Alcott! Little Men is on my Classics Club list.
The Giver by Lois Lowry // This book is so powerful and so profound. Loved rereading it a few years ago. Would love to read more by Lowry.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte // One of my favorite classic novels. I want to read more of the Bronte sisters in general–especially Anne.
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery // I absolutely love Anne. I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I have not read the full series. But I was gifted the complete set from my aunt recently and I hope to read them all soon. Perhaps an Anne of Green Gables Read Along…anyone want to join? 🙂
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis // I have actually read the complete Narnia series but I hear there are so many works by Lewis worth reading. I need to review more of them on my blog. I have only reviewed The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
Which authors do you need to read more of?
And who should I add to my TBR?
