Books by my favorite authors I haven’t read yet | #toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Age of Myth (Legends of the First Empire #1) by Michael J. Sullivan // Sullivan’s Riyria Revelations and Chronicles are two of my favorite fantasy series ever. I adore them, and have grown immensely attached to the main characters. So why haven’t I read this book? I even own a copy…

This Savage Song (This Savage Song #1) by Victoria Schwab // I adore Victoria’s books, but I think I’ve only ever read books she has published under V.E. Schwab. I have heard so many great things about this duology though, so I really need to buy a copy of this book.

The Way of Kings (Stormlight Archive #1) by Brandon Sanderson // Listen, this book is intimidating, okay? It’s so long and the font in the mass market paperback copy I have is absolutely tiny. I will get to it at some point though. This year! Maybe. Hopefully…

The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1) by N.K. Jemisin // I truly enjoyed The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and The Broken Kingdoms, so I want to explore more of her writing. The Broken Earth series is so well-known in the bookish/fantasy community, and it’s a bit scary to start. Once again: I will read it! I promise.

Daughter of the Blood (The Black Jewels #1) by Anne Bishop // Anne Bishop’s The Others series is one of my favorite series. I’ve re-read the first few books multiple times in the past 4 years, and will continue to do so because they’re absolutely incredible. I haven’t ventured into any of her older works though. This series seems intriguing, and I own the first book so I really have no excuse for not reading it yet.

The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien // No, I have not read this book yet. I do love Lord of the Rings but I will be the first to admit that his books are not easy to read. They take quite a bit of concentration and attention, and I haven’t been able to lend that to the book. So I haven’t read it yet. It’s so intimidating!

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor // Once again, I am so far behind on the hype. I haven’t read Laini Taylor’s latest release for one main reason: the paperback version was released so late compared to the hardcover one and I far prefer reading paperbacks. May sound stupid, but it’s the truth.

The Mad Ship (Liveship Traders #2) by Robin Hobb // Help me, I’m scared. I need to continue the series before I lose momentum and never finish the Realm of the Elderlings. And I really enjoyed the first book as well! They’re just so long…

Walk on Earth a Stranger (Gold Seer #1) by Rae Carson // There’s no excuse. Rae Carson’s Girl of Fire and Thorns is one of my favorite YA fantasy series so I wanted to read her new series when it was released. Years later, I still haven’t done it.

The Wise Man’s Fear (Kingkiller Chronicles #2) by Patrick Rothfuss // Someone save me. It’s been so long since I’ve read the first book that I’ve forgotten most of what happens in it. I don’t want to re-read it before reading this one because IT IS SO LONG. But I also don’t want to go into this book without remembering!!

There you go, 10 books I really should’ve read a long time ago…
Have you read any of these books?

Which books by your favorite authors are still on your to-read list?

  1. I love the Riyria Revelations, it’s one of my favorite fantasy series. But I’ve yet to read both the Riyaria Chronicles and Age of Myths. I really need to get on that! Strange the Dreamer is so wonderful, I hope you enjoy it!


  2. Ahhh, so many good books on this list! I still need to read Hobb and Schwab, but I highly recommend The Silmarillion, The Wise Man’s Fear, Age of Myth and The Way of Kings. With The Way of Kings in particular, the size is definitely particularly daunting, but the story within it is just so mind blowing and so fast paced, you honestly don’t really notice the length, except to be disappointed that it’s over already. Age of Myth was really pleasant and I still need to read the rest of the series, so I’m right there with you.

    Good luck reading these!


  3. I totally know what you mean about Robin Hobb’s books. I’m currently on her Farseer trilogy and haven’t picked up the third one yet just because I’m intimidated by the size of it. Even though I actually really like the story and cannot wait to read more about the world!
