This week’s theme: Author’s We’ve Only Read One Book From

Have you ever picked up a book, read it, and thought, “Author, where have you BEEN all this time? Why has my never-ending gobstopper TBR pile hidden away such a treasure? A diamond in the rough? I love you, let me book stalk you forever now!”

I am discovering more and more of these secret gems, right in my own bookshelf. This week, we discuss authors that caused us to add more books to our wish list due to new found author lust.

  1. You should definitely read “Attachments” by Rainbow Rowell. That was the first Rowell book I read and I LOVED it. The only book I haven’t read by her was Landline but I do own it. I also read The Sky is Everywhere and loved it as well. Great picks! Hope you get to read these books soon

  3. YES to reading more Laini Taylor ♥ and Mike Mullin for that matter, although I’ve only read 1 more book after Ashfall…I still need to read the last one xD I also need to read more Rainbow Rowell since I’ve only read Fangirl by her. And I just need to read something by Melina Marchetta period. I have a few of her books on my tbr shelf but haven’t read a single book by her…yet. I hope you both get to read more books by all these authors soon ^^

    I’ve only read one book by Kelley York as well, and it was Made of Stars. I LOVED it. I totally would read more of her books.

    I’ve only read Rainbow Rowell and Melina Marchetta from your list. I highly recommend Fangirl, but I still need to read Eleanor & Park and Landline. I have read the first two Lumatere Chronicles and they are amazing. I want to give Zoe Marriott, Mike Mullin, and Laini Taylor a try soon. Thanks for sharing!
