Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.
This week’s topic is a little hard to put into words, but … here goes. Have you ever read a book and immediately just wanted more? Either more from the same author, more books on the same topic, or more books in that genre? I know that I have, for all of the above. So here’s a list of ten books that I read and just wanted more, as well as a little explanation of why:
- Hook by Gina L. Maxwell — this book was the last chance I was going to give romance, and after reading it, I was willing to continue reading romance (if there were more books like this).
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon — I haven’t been able to find anything else that quite matches up to this series that crosses over several genres (and centuries).
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt — this wasn’t just a book, it was like a whole lived experience!
- One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston — I definitely want to read more by this author after this one.
- Rebel Daughter by Lori Banov Kaufmann — this was one of the first Jewish historical fiction books that I’ve read (that doesn’t deal with World War II), and I’m looking forward to more.
- The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren — this book made me want to read more fake dating books, and also more Christina Lauren books!
- The Light of the Midnight Stars by Rena Rossner — after reading this, you know I had to run and read The Sisters of the Winter Wood.
- With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo — I had to read all of her work after reading this one. And I’m not even a little sorry about it.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas — this book really opened my eyes to fantasy, and got me reading more of the genre.
- The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden — after reading this I wanted all the folklore!
What about you? What books made you want to read more of an author or genre?
