Top Ten Tuesday #3

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's Top Ten list is:

Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read

Oooh, how fun!  I had to think hard on this one.  Here's what (or who) I came up with:

  1.  J.K. Rowling - I know, I know, I'm probably the last person on planet earth who hasn't tried this author.  I can't even really defend myself.
  2.  Rick Riordan - I've bought my kids every one of his books, and have yet to read one!
  3. Tom Clancy - My husband has his books all over the house, but I guess I'm just not interested in this genre.
  4. Wilbur Smith - Same as above, my hubby has a bunch of his books, although Smith's books sound more interesting to me than Clancy's.  
  5. Gillian Flynn - I have "Sharp Objects" on my bookshelf, just haven't got around to it yet.
  6. Dean Koontz - Too scary!
  7. Richelle Mead - Just not into vampires.
  8. L.J. Smith - Again, vampires.
  9. P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast - More freakin' vampires!
  10. And last but not least, Kurt Vonnegut.
Are there popular authors out there that you've never tried?  Leave me your "Top Ten" link in the comments, I'd love to check out your list!


  1. I have Kurt Vonnegut on my list too! I haven't read a lot of these authors either. But J.K. Rowling? Every time I see that on a list I am shocked. But don't worry, you're not alone!

  2. All Dean Koontz is not scary, try Lightning, that was one of my favourites.

  3. I've seen J.K. Rowling in Rick Riordan on tons of lists today, so you are not alone. I thought about putting Clancy on my list (my Dad had tons laying around growing up). I've also never read Grisham which I think surprising some people given his popularity.
