Top Ten Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate just head on over to their blog and sign up. Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday.  Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Ten authors I wish would write another book.  Let's see.




1. Dee Henderson- I love love love this author. I've read every book that she's published. I really want her to write something new. I love Christian romantic suspense.




2. Jane Austen- Yes, I know everybody probably put her, But it's true.  I would still be insanely interested in seeing what she would  write. I love her.




3. J. K. Rowling- I loved Harry Potter and would be really interested in seeing what she would come up with next. I'd definitely love to fall in love with another series she writes, but then it comes back to the whole question of if she could write another Harry Potter.




4. Daphne du Maurier- Jamaica Inn? Rebecca? Hello, yes, I'd love to read another brilliant book. Love love her. I love her style of writing and it's romantic suspense so yeah definitely love her.




5. Suzanne Collins- I love Hunger Games and would be really really interested in seeing what else she would write.




6. Georgette Heyer- Austen-esque novels that I love. Could never read enough of these.




7. Corneila Funke- I loved her as a child/teen and have read almost all her books. I'd really like to see what she would write next.




8. Charles Dickens- I'm an English major, you should have seen this one coming. Especially since Dickens usually wrote about social injustices. I'd love to see what he'd write about today.




9. Harper Lee- To Kill a Mockingbird? Enough said. Okay, I listed her because I love her characters, her writing style, and her plots. Great writer.




10. Margaret Mitchell- You know I love her, if you know me at all. I'd love to see what she wrote next. I've only mentioned her on the blog oh a few dozen/hundred times.


And that are ten authors I'd love to write another book. Yes, my reading preferences are very varied. I also really enjoyed seeing what these authors actually look like/were thought to look like. That was interesting.


What about you guys? What ten books do you want

  3. wonderful list- we have a lot of authors in common! I have not read a Heyer book yet but am hoping to soon. I have heard they are very good.

  4. @Anne, Heyer is definitely worth checking out. Don't read Charity Girl first though or else you'll get the wrong impression.

  5. I could definitely go for another Suzanne Collins. It will be interesting to see what she does next. I think it must be hard to figure that out after such a successful series (same with Rowling).

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and I'm so glad to hear that you are a big Hawthorne fan.

  6. LBC, yeah definitely agree. It would be hard to match Hunger Games.

    And I'm always excited to meet a Hawthorne fan.

  7. Have you read Collins' middle grade series? The first one is Gregor the Overlander. They were all published before The Hunger Games, I think, and I wonder if she will go back to MG, do another YA book, or something else entirely.

  8. Harper Lee. I haven't read much of your site, so you may have already covered it but, how do you feel about the upcoming publication of Go Set A Watchman?

    1. I have mixed feelings. I'm so nervous. I mean she wrote the other book so long ago, and I'm a little bit leery about this. I don't know. What do you think?
