Happy Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s topic allows us to highlight our favourite authors! This makes me incredibly excited, but it also shows me how behind I am on reading.

I also noticed when writing this post, that I have lots of authors I enjoy, but I really struggle when it comes to defining favourite authors. And, I noticed that a lot of the time, authors I consider to be a favourite, I’m all caught up on their books. This is largely because I tend to push other books aside to read a new release from a favourite author.

For those of you who are not familiar, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where she assigns a new topic each week and posts a top ten list to follow that theme.

This week’s topic isΒ books by my favourite author I still haven’t read! Let’s take a look at what books I need to get to, and soon!

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare - The Contented Reader
The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare - The Contented Reader

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare // Lady Midnight was not my favourite book by Cassandra Clare. It took me a while to get into and I think that’s why I’m hesitant to read Lord of Shadows. But, I also want to read it closer to the release of Queen of Air and Darkness, which is mostly why I still haven’t read it!

The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare // I absolutely love Magnus Bane. He’s sassy and unique and is one of my all time favourite characters. This one is still a surprise to me that I haven’t read it yet. Especially considering the fact that my best friends gifted it to me for Christmas a while back!

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare - The Contented Reader
War Storm by Victoria Aveyard - The Contented Reader

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare // Again, very surprising I haven’t read this! I think it’s because it is a compilation of short stories that I haven’t made it a priority on my TBR. I will definitely get to it someday though!

War Storm by Victoria Aveyard // While Victoria Aveyard’s books are a bit controversial in the book blog community, I happen to enjoy her books. I love her world-building. It’s epic and so descriptive. I really just want to know what happens with this world, and hopefully, I’ll get to the final book soon!

A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir - The Contented Reader
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas - The Contented Reader

A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir // I think I’m cheating a bit with this one because I just started reading it. Oops! But, I’m counting it because very quickly into reading An Ember in the Ashes, I knew Sabaa Tahir was a newfound favourite of mine. Plus, I’m definitely late to the game when it comes to seeing how amazing this series is!

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas // I think it’s fairly known here on my blog that I’m catching up with the Throne of Glass series. Clearly, every book remaining in the series I haven’t read yet. But I thought it wouldn’t be fair to include them all, ha! Queen of Shadows is up next though, so it made the list!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling - The Contented Reader
Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella - The Contented Reader

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling // While this is not necessarily considered to be solely written by JK Rowling, I still consider it written by a favourite author of mine. I have not read this book, but I also do not think I will. One of my best friends bought me a copy in England the summer it released and I treasure it. But, as for the story/script, I don’t know if it’ll be for me.

Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella // Sophie Kinsella is one of my chick-lit auto buy authors. While her books don’t blow me away, I always enjoy the ease that comes with reading them. Especially her Confessions of a Shopaholic series. Her most recent release is one that I haven’t read – hopefully soon!

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen - The Contented Reader
Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen - The Contented Reader

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen // I love Sarah Dessen. While her books are sometimes similar, they are always easy and fluffy reads I enjoy. Surprisingly, I have not read This Lullaby – I don’t even own a copy! I hope I can rectify this soon though, and add it to my Dessen collection!

Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen // Similar to This Lullaby, I have not read this Dessen book yet! But in my defense, this book originally released when I was only four years old (1999, eek!). Hopefully I get a chance to read it soon.

Well, those are some of my favourite authors! It definitely is not too much to catch up on, but certainly surprising to be behind on books by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Dessen!
