Top Ten Authors On My Spring TBR List


I’m linking up again with Broke and Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday! It’s a perfect time for me to share my top ten books to read this spring!

What's on my To-Be-Read list for the Spring!

Instead of sharing just 10 books – because I’m not super great at choosing what to read next – I am going to share 10 authors that I intend on reading, plus the books they’ve written that I’d like to read!

edith wharton name

I need to read The House of Mirth for a reading challenge, but the other novel seems interesting, too.

Emily St John Mandel name

I absolutely loved Station Eleven, so I can’t wait to read more books by St. John Mandel.

stephen king name

Joyland was my first Stephen King novel. It was a great read. Of course, I’ve watched a ton of movies based on his novels. Now, I’m ready to read more of his novels.

jodi picoult name

I’ve never read any Picoult novels, but a lot of my friends lover her. I have two friends that have entire bookshelves dedicated to all of her novels that they own, so I guess it’s time to take the dive.

Death of the Heart, Elizabeth Bowen

I guess, if you read my 10 Book Problems that I Have, you’ll understand why this list is SO LONG.

    I took a class on Edith Wharton (and another author) in college and really enjoyed her books! You’ll like them. And you’ll also like Jodi Picoult, who is one of my favorite authors.

    • That would have been a cool class! I read another Wharton novel, but I’d love to read some more of her work. I have never ever read a Picoult novel, but I am excited to get started!

  • I’ve never read any Jodi Picoult books either but everyone has always been suggesting them to me, so I picked up a couple at a library sale for 25cents each! I found Salem Falls, Nineteen Minutes, and The Tenth Circle. I’m not sure which one I should start with. I have Jojo Moyes on my list too. I’ve never read anything from her yet either

    • Some Picoult fans recommended Plain Truth and House Rules to me to start with! I’ve read a few Moyes novels. I love them!

  • I went through a spell where I read many of Jodi Picoult’s books. I’ve not read the three you have listed but I can tell you that I truly enjoyed all of her books and think you will too.

    • I hope so! Someone recommended Plain Truth and House Rules to me. I think at least one of them is a mystery, which I would probably love. I know she has written some real tear-jerkers, which I’m not in the mood for right now. I just read Still Alice, which made me cry SO much, but it was so beautiful.

  • Still Alice is on my list, as well! I’ve read a handful of Jodi Picoult novels and liked them; wasn’t totally blown away. I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on them!

    • I wrote this post a week or so ago, so I ended up reading Still Alice over the weekend. Absolutely loved them. I have a few friends who have entire bookshelves dedicated to her novels. I hope that I’ll like them!

  • I didn’t know JoJo Moyes had a new novel coming out, how exciting! I have only read 2 of hers and loved them both so I can’t wait to read more. I just read This is where I leave you over the weekend and I really enjoyed it!

    • Yeah! It’s a sequel to Me Before You! I can’t even imagine what direction she’ll go with it!!!

  • We’ve discussed Tropper. Have we discussed the fact that I’ve never read a Jodi Picoult book either? I want to get to that as well. As for JoJo Moyes, I have one of her books sitting on my bookshelf that I picked up at a secondhand bookstore (I can’t remember which one right now).

    My next 3 books are (because I picked 2 of them up at the library this morning, and the other is on reserve): The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (because I’ve never read a J.K. Rowling, and I have no interest in Harry Potter), All That I Am by Anna Funder, and Everything That I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.

  • In my creative writing classes in university we read “On Writing” and “Bird by Bird” from Stephen King and Anne Lammott. Even though they are more cut and dry tutorial type books, they’re still fascinating about the world of writing. To me that was the sign of a good author. I need to read more of Jonathan Tropper too!

  • Ahhh I cried so much during Me Before You. I loved The Girl You Left Behind by her, too! I did JUST finish One Plus One, which I can recommend, too.
    I really want to read Plain Truth by Picoult first because I think it’s a mystery and I’m into mysteries. She must be good because she’s been writing for so long, and I have many friends with good taste who love her! I just know that she wrote some that have been made into movies that I know made me cry just during the trailers! So, I just don’t want to cry a ton hahaha.

  • I have Station Eleven and The Ship of Brides on my Kindle right now. I haven’t read either of them yet but I have them both already bought and downloaded. I’m glad you liked Station Eleven, it moves it up my TBR list.
