Top Ten Tuesday - Books From My Favorite Authors That I Still Need To Read

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is a Top Ten Tuesday rewind so I've chosen the topic - Books From My Favorite Authors That I Still Need To Read.

1. Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts - I love Nora Roberts' stand alone stories and this one looks great.  Plus, it's been sitting on my shelf since it came out in paperback which was years ago!

2.  The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor - This was the book that made me notice Hazel Gaynor in the first place.  Since then I've read and loved a number of her books but somehow never read this one!

3.  The Blind Side by Patricia Wentworth - I love Patricia Wentworth's mysteries and have read all the Miss Silver books but haven't read all the Ernest Lamb books.  This is one I'm missing.

4.  The Clockmaker's Daughter by Kate Morton - I have had the audio of this one since shortly after it came out but have stalled on getting to it.  

5.  A Nun in the Closet by Dorothy Gilman - I have read and adored the Mrs. Pollifax books but haven't read any of Gilman's stand alones.  This one sounds absolutely delightful!

6.  Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn - I love Deanna Raybourn's books but somehow never read the first book in her earlier Lady Julia Gray mystery series.

7.  Garden of Lies by Amanda Quick - I really enjoy Quick's romantic suspense but somehow I have never read this one.

8.  The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell - This book was the first book by Jewell that ever ended up on my TBR but while I've read a lot of her books I somehow have still not read this one.

9,  Hello, Stranger by Lisa Kleypas - Kleypas is by far one of my favorite romance authors but for some reason I haven't gotten all the Ravenell books read and still have this one to go.

10. Unfinished Portrait by Agatha Christie - This was technically published under the Mary Westmacott name but it's still an Agatha Christie book that I somehow haven't read!

Do you have books by a favorite author that you have yet to read?


  1. I think that list can be endless! I still STILL STILL haven't started with a Patricia Wentworth and I guess that needs to be first on my list for sure.

    Nora Roberts, I am rather picky with. I don't like all her books!!

    I hope you get to these ones soon....

  2. That is one of my favorite Lisa Jewell books you ahve on your list. I love the cover of Silent in the Grave.

  3. So many! I'm so behind with several favorite authors. If I did a list like this it would end up being much longer than 10. ;D

  4. I know most of these authors and need to read more of their books too.

  5. Great list. I haven't read any of them.

  6. Great list. I remember listening to Chasing fire and liked it. A Nun in the Closet sounds absolutely fascinating.

  7. I still need to read the Lady Julia Gray books and catch up on Lisa Kleypas's backlist.

  8. There are a ton of Discworld books I still need to read, but I have to be in just the right mood to read them so it's taking a while. Ha ha. 😄
