Top Ten Tuesday (1-10-12)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. This week's topic:

Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book

1) Harper Lee (To Kill A Mockingbird) - since she only wrote one book, which happens to be one the greatest books ever written, I wish she would have written another book (and I'm sure many people feel the same way)

2) Emily Bronte (Wuthering Heights) - this was her only published novel, which happens to be one of the greatest love stories ever written.

3) David Nicholls (One Day) - Nicholls has written three novels, but I wish that he would write more! I love his writing style so much.

4) Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus) - I'm not a big fan of the fantasy genre, but Morgenstern's first novel was so beautifully written that I was swept away to the night cirucs. I'm looking forward to reading more of her work in the future.

5) David Sedaris - seriously, I think we all need some more Sedaris in our lives! Here's hoping that he will release a new book soon!

6) Kathryn Stockett (The Help) - such a great, powerful debut novel. I hope that she has another story up her sleeve!

7) JK Rowling (Harry Potter) - in actuality, I just want more Harry Potter books.

8) Paula McLain (The Paris Wife) - such a beautifully written novel about Ernest Hemingway's first wife. I hope that she continues to write historical novels.

Well, that's all I could come up with this week. So, which authors do you wish would write another book?


  1. Erin Morgenstern is a great one! I can't wait to read what she writes next!

    P.s. your link on the broke and the bookish takes the person to your Santa Top 10. Not this one. Just so you know :)

  2. I haven't read any of David Nicholls' books save for One Day but yeah, he should write more! Erin Morgenstern and Paula McLain both made it on my list this week, their debuts were fantastic =)

  3. Totally agree about Erin Morgenstern! My reason was the same as yours: beautiful writing.

    Harper Lee made a lot of lists too. It's crazy that she only published one book (but to have it be TKAM!)!

  4. Nicholls and Sedaris are both excellent suggestions. I should probably go back and read some older Nicholls though. Would you recommend Starter for Ten?
