John Green. Yes, yes, I KNOW OKAY. I have had TFiOS on my shelf for two years now and I still haven't read it. I still haven't read Looking For Alaska or Paper Towns or any other book that he's written. I want to read TFiOS before the movie comes out though, because I know that I will not read it when I've already seen the movie.
Rick Riordan. Um. I have seen the first movie. Haha, and YES, again, I do know that they're nothing like the books, but still. I'm not big on middle grade books so I don't really want to read the first Percy Jackson books, but I heard that you can still enjoy the Heroes of the Olympus series, but you don't really get the inside jokes and stuff, so that's holding me back from getting the HoO books and not reading them. I most certainly want to. Have you read PJO series? What did you think? Should I still read them even though they're more younger YA?
Susan Ee. Ha, well, a funny story. I own the first two books in paperback and every single one of my friends adores this series. Why haven't I still read them? I have absolutely no idea.
Sarah Dessen. I have heard so many great things about her books, the hype got especially big once The Moon and More came out. I have an e-copy, but haven't read it yet. I did get a -50% off gorgeous paperback copy of The Truth About Forever last Friday when I went to my local bookstore so I guess reading is a definite must now ;)
Sarah Ockler. I absolutely adore contemporary and her covers are just so gorgeous and lovable. I cannot wait to start a book by her. I think I already own copies of The Book of Broken Hearts and Twenty Boy Summer so that's a start.
Kendare Blake. Oh, man. I have heard so much hype. I actually tried listening to Anna Dressed in Blood, but the guy who narrated the book was in such a rush and read in a very disinterested voice so I couldn't get into it and I didn't purchase it after listening to the sample. I do, however, want to give it a go on my kindle. One day. I think. Plus, Antigoddess seems like a unique read even though there are polarized reviews.
Karen Marie Moning. Ooohkay. Lauren, Aman, Jasprit, Rachel, Jenny and EVERYONE, tbh. I will get to these soon, I PROMISE. I have Darkfever and since the next Dani book is coming out next year, I have lots of time to catch up with this enormous series. Cannot wait to meet Barrons though :)
David Levithan. This is another author whose books sound so compelling, but for some reason I still haven't gotten to them. I own a paperback of Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, I own a kindle copy of Every Day and I have yet to read either of them. Must. Correct. That. Mistake. Soon.
Courtney Summers. So this is an author who I know Tanja and Giselle absolutely love. I want to read these so bad, but I'm a little afraid that they don't hold any romance in them. I don't want them to be all about the romance, but some kissing and feels wouldn't hurt. Are there any such things in Courtney's books?
Brigid Kemmerer. Eh, this feels like a crime of all crimes. Hype? Yes. Compelling premises? Yes. Cute guys? (Based on the covers) Yes. Raving reviews? Yes. Series is finally done? Almost, yes. Me reading these books soon? Um, hopefully yes :D
So, that's my list. Have you read some of the authors on my list? Which books did you love? Who are your "popular authors you have never read"?
