I feel like this happens whenever I start a series, and I just sob inwardly because I know I need to finish it because it’s just so darn good and damn that author for being so awesome and crazy for having more than one series I need to read!
Top Ten Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
Brent Weeks – I recently purchased The Night Angel trilogy the last time I went to The Strand, and ugh, I’ve still not picked up book 2. And what’s worse, I hear his Lightbringer series is awesome too and I so want The Blinding Knife.
Sarah J. Maas – I seem to recall being told to read her story ages ago, and I immensely enjoyed Throne of Glass. Now I just remembered I should probably get on the bandwagon and read the rest of her trilogy. Although as a shipper of things shippy, I’m kind of afraid to see where Maas eventually took the romance.
Philippa Ballantine – Her collaboration series, A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences was my first ever introduction to Pip Ballantine (and Tee Morris), though admittedly it is not my only one. I’ve read and enjoyed a short story by her as well, which is why she’s on this list, because I not only need to read The Janus Affair (book #2 of Peculiar Occurrences), I want to read the Books of the Order and start her newer stuff, too.
Maureen Johnson – I’m not sure I want to continue her Shades of London series, even though I really liked The Name of the Star. I think it’s because I saw it more as a standalone, even though it clearly wasn’t. Maybe I’ll try the next book in the series, but I might also just go for her standalones first. I really liked the short stories I’ve read of hers (two of which I might have read in anthologies).
Tanya Huff – I’m still really hoping to see a sequel of The Silvered…but hem hem. I might have to try her Blood books at some point, but probably not right now, since I’m not a vampire person at the moment (all those damn werewolf books have messed with my head lately).
Kevin Hearne – There are apparently nine of the Iron Druid Chronicles. So eventually I will get to all nine at some point. Yeah. Loved Hounded, obviously, else I wouldn’t even try.
Lane Robins – I’m not sure I want to continue reading about the world of Antyre when Maledicte was no longer the main character. In fact, Kings and Assassins describes a summary where Janus would be the main character. Janus was not a character you were supposed to like in Maledicte, so naturally, I’m still iffy over him as a main character. Still, considering how the first book ended, I figure the companion novel would have to be about Janus and not about awesomer characters like, say, Miranda or Gilly.
Adrienne Kress – I really want to read Outcast out of the books she’d written. I don’t know why. It’s pretty. Although Alex and the Ironic Gentleman sounds like a fun romp with a female MC I could totally see myself reading.
James Dashner – Because Maze Runner trilogy really needs to be read and finished. This isn’t even an option at this point.
Neal Shusterman – My initial reaction to there being more Unwind books was: “THERE’S MORE TO UNWIND?” But apparently there are. Must. Read. Books.
