Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. The girls post a new Top Ten list each week that one of them will answer and everyone is welcome to join in. For future Top Ten Tuesday topics and information on how to participate, click here.
1. Erin Lange: I’ve recently read Dead Ends, which is a fairly new release (April 2014), and fell in love with her writing and her characters. Butter, her previous novel, has been on my TBR list for ages and I’ve heard great things about it, so I need to pick it up ASAP.
2. Jonathan Kellerman: As a massive crime fiction fan, I’ve no idea how I’ve never read his books. I’ve only read Victims so far but it stayed with me long after turning the last page. It was one hell of a story and I’ll definitely read the rest of the series.
3. Cat Clarke: I ADORED Undone. I wasn’t sure about it at first but Jesse’s review convinced me and I’m not joking when I say it became one of my favourite YA novels ever. I already bought two of her other books and I’m pretty sure they’re gonna be just as amazing.
4. James Dawson: I keep recommending Cruel Summer to all my friends and absolutely loved the book. I don’t think we have enough (good) YA thrillers these days so Cruel Summer is definitely unique in this respect. I went to the book launch of James’ new book a while ago and he’s such a lovely and hilarious guy. I NEED to pick up his other books soon.
5. Kevin Brooks: The Bunker Diary completely broke my heart and is a story that I know will stay with me for a very, very long time. I keep eyeing his books whenever I’m in Waterstones but couldn’t decide which one to start with. It’s only a matter of time!
6. Koethi Zan: She’s only written one book so far but as soon as another one comes out, I’ll be on my way to the nearest bookshop. The Never List is possibly my favourite psychological thriller ever and is seriously unputdownable. I loved the author’s style and I’m sure I’ll love whatever she comes up with next.
7. Tana French: In the Woods is the only book I’ve read of hers so far but I have the rest of the series waiting on my shelf. All her books are pretty long but she has such a unique and captivating writing style that they’re a must for anyone who likes mysteries.
8. Jane Costello: The Wish List was a pleasant surprise and it made me laugh out loud several times. Jane’s writing reminded me of Sophie Kinsella’s and I’ve been dying to read her books ever since.
9. Veronica Roth: I’ve only read Divergent so far (I know, I know…) but I’ll be reading the rest of the series very soon. CAN’T. WAIT.
10. Susanne Winnacker: I’ve read The Other Life ages ago (literally) and remember really enjoying it. I need the sequel in my life!
