This Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Authors I've Never Read. This list is in no particular order, just how they popped into my head. I don't have 10 authors, I have 8, but 8 is better than a measly 5 or something, right? I'm deciding on 'Top Ten' meaning that they're ones I actually hope to read one day. I could real off a massive list of popular author's I haven't read but it doesn't make sense to do that. That's just my thinking anyway.
Maureen Johnson- Maureen is someone I follow religiously on Twitter and Tumblr. I love her humour and stance on female writers and I definitely want to read her novels soon, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
Sally Gardner- I have heard wonderful things about Sally's works and even own one of her novels (a signed copy as well) but I haven't actually read anything by her yet!
G. R Mannering- I'm never sure whether I should call her Georgia or Rose, as she goes by both on the internet, but either way I am soon to be finding some way to get my hands on Miss Mannering's debut Roses. She is someone I admire greatly, being both an incredible booktuber and a published author. Also, just look at that pretty face. How could you not love her? Not a massively popular author but her novel is not getting a lot of recognition on booktube so watch this space, I think she could be huge.
Brandon Sanderson- I own his entire Mistborn series and already feel like it will be something I'm going to love to death, so that's why he's on this list.
Ransom Riggs- Of course Ransom would be on here, he is loved by all of YouTube. That and he's married to Tahereh Mafi, so bonus points for them being the cutest married couple on the internet. His series regular features on the NYT YA Bestsellers list, so I think that counts as popular, right?
Terry Pratchett- One of the most beloved English Fantasy & Science Fiction, I've been putting off reading his novels since I heard about his Alzheimer's disease because I don't want to be upset when he dies, but I unfortunately already feel attached to him and his writing so now I've changed my mind. I want to read his novels before his disease kills him, which is a bit of a morbid look on life but still.
Chris Riddell- I love Chris' Drawing for all of Neil Gaiman's children's books, and I have 2 of them which he has signed, I just don't actually yet own one of his own novels, so I need to get on that.
