Top Ten Tuesday: Mainstream Popular Authors that I Still Have Not Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by That Arty Reader Girl. Each week, we are given a bookish topic to discuss. This week’s theme is Mainstream Popular Authors that I Still Have Not Read. I feel like I don’t keep track of the current popular authors, so this was quite challenging to list. However, I know there are a number of authors over the last few years that many people have loved and raved about that I have yet to read. Most of them are YA authors, a genre I don’t read very much of. Without further ado, here they are in no particular order.

  1. Robin Hobb
  2. Cassandra Claire
  3. Stephenie Meyer
  4. V.E. Schwab
  5. Patrick Rothfuss
  6. George R.R. Martin
  7. Mercedes Lackey
  8. Veronica Ross
  9. Rebecca Yarros
  10. John Green

I hope you enjoyed my list of Mainstream Popular Authors that I Still Have Not Read. Have you read books from any of these authors?


  1. I’ve read several of these: Yarros, Martin, Claire, Meyer, Ross and Green. If I had to tell you to try one of them, it would be Yarros- but I would pick her adult romances.

      I had no idea Yarros wrote adult romance. I may just check them out.

  2. I haven’t read George R.R. Martin either.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

    1. Author

      Glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t read his books.

  3. I’ve read at least one book by Clare, Meyer, and Green. I wouldn’t call any of them favorite authors, though. I hope you enjoy these authors when you get to them!

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!


    1. Author

      Good to know. I’m not sure if I will read these authors but I may one day.

  4. I had not heard of Rebecca Yarros before today.

    Now I’m curious about what kind of books she writes. She is very popular.

    1. Author

      She’s one of those super hyped authors at the moment, especially with her current YA book.

  5. I definitely recommend VE Schwab and Patrick Rothfuss! Fantasy is always such a risk in my opinion (it can be super good or super bad), but they do write such good books.

    1. Author

      I agree about fantasy being a 50/50 thing. I’ll see about giving those authors a try.
