TTT: Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's top ten list is
Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book

J K Rowling
I think Her Majesty is going to be on most people's lists this week. I've been waiting for a new Harry Potter book, a Harry Potter Encyclopedia or just a new series from this woman for years. I can't decide which I would prefer, because I feel that if she started a new series it would constantly be compared to Harry Potter.

Darren Shan
This guy is still writing books, of course, but I want more books set in the vampire world. More books in the Darren Shan Saga. Although that is pretty much over, I want to know what happened AFTER the war. I need to know everything! 

Elizabeth Woods
I read Choker last year and thought it was a fantastic read. I'm hoping that Ms Woods will write more, because she's a fantastic author, and I think her book deserves a lot more hype than it got.

Ransom Riggs
I think he's planning on writing a sequel to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, now that I think about it. I really enjoyed that book, and I LOVED the photographs that were in the book. Pure awesome.  

Cat Patrick
She has a book coming out this year, but I need more! Forgotten was fantastic, and I'd love another book in that series, even though it's a standalone. I can't wait to read Revived, though!  

Kat Falls
The author of Dark Life, one of my favourite reads of last year. Kat has started the Dark Life series, and there are currently two books out, but I don't know when the third is going to by published, and I don't know the name. I need it right now!

Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden, in my opinion, is the best classic EVER. I love it.

F Scott Fitzgerald
The Great Gatsby is also fantastic. This guy should have written way more books - on top of the load he had already written - to keep me occupied for life.

Oscar Wilde
Because his books are classics, and they are hilarious!

Anna Sewell
The author of Black Beauty, another favourite classic of mine.

  1. I forgot about Frances Hodgson Burnett, but she totally should have been on my list! A favorite to this day! Great list!

    My Top Ten

    1. *high five* I love her writing! I really need to buy a nice edition of TSG.

  2. I've seen Rowling on almost all the lists I've seen today - and I forgot to add her to mine! I'm banging my head against the desk for that one. ;)

    Great list! Here's mine.

    1. Haha I almost forgot myself! I'm glad I was looking over my bookshelf, otherwise I'd have missed her out :)

  3. Totally agree with Elizabeth Woods and Ransom Riggs. I love Choker and would like another creepy and twist story from her. There is going to be a sequel to Miss Peregrines...but it doesn't come out til Spring of next year! Ugh, that seems so long to wait...

    1. Next year? I was expecting late 2012! Spring is way too far away. I loved Choker as well, it's one of my favourites of last year.

  4. I haven't read any Woods or Riggs. I was hoping to get Miss Peregrine's from publisher but it never made it. I am intrigued with him. He sounds very intelligent and creative.


    1. I hope you manage to get your hands on a copy! He does seem very intelligent. Did you know he's friends with John Green? That makes him even more awesome!
