Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s topic is:
Books By My Favourite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read
With one of my goals this year to make more time to read books by my favourite authors, this is a perfect topic for me. In no particular order, here are the top ten books by my favourite authors I have yet to read:
- The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley – Many of fellow Kearsley fans have named this as their favourite of her wonderful dual narrative novels.
- Frenchman’s Creek by Daphne du Maurier – Historical fiction set during Charles II’s reign, where an English lady falls in love with a French pirate.
- Lady Susan by Jane Austen – Having enjoyed all of Austen’s full length novels, I keep forgetting this shorter work posthumously published.
- A Grief Observed by C. S. Lewis – A collection of Lewis’s reflections on his painful bereavement following the death of his wife, Joy in 1960.
- Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens – I hope this will be my next Dickens’ read, after enjoying the BBC’s 2008 adaptation some years ago now.
- Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien – I would love to read this but I am not sure I will ever be brave enough to read this dense Middle Earth history.
- Queen of the North by Anne O’Brien – This is the newest historical fiction from O’Brien, one of my go-to authors for my historical fix.
- The Trysting Tree by Linda Gillard – Bitter-sweetly I look forward to reading this, the last of Gillard’s moving women’s fiction on my Kindle.
- Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen by Alison Weir – After loving the first two books in Weir’s epic Six Tudor Queens, I look forward to more.
- Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett – Finally, I don’t think this list would be complete without an instalment in Pratchett’s fantastical Discworld.
