Top Ten Tuesday: Write Another One Already!

Hey guys! It's time to write another book, even if you're dead!

1. Markus Zusak... yes I know. I could answer with him or his books for nearly every single bookish topic given to me. It's true. But, it's been a LONG time since we've had a book from him and I'm getting anxious. But he's working on it and if he has to go slow to crank out awesome books, that's just fine. But still... I hope it happens soon!

2. John Green.... YAY! It's been a while since we've heard from him too! But today that ends! I'm so excited. Happy The Fault in our Stars Day to you all!

3. Stephenie Meyer... I know some of you will not agree with this one, but I'm saying it anyway. It makes me sad we haven't heard from her in a long time. I hope she hasn't quit.

4. Harper Lee.... wouldn't it be cool if she wrote something else?

5. Wilkie Collins.... he wrote a TON when he was alive, but still, I find it fascinating to wonder what he'd write if he were still here.

6. Donna Woolfolk Cross... didn't we all love Pope Joan? And I thought there was going to be another one from her, but I never saw it happen. Hopefully it still happens some day.

7. David Wroblewski.... I loved The Story of Edgar Sawtelle and I don't think he's written another one yet... I would read it for sure if he did!

8. Jane Austen... of course. She needed time to write more before leaving us. Wouldn't it be great if had, like, stacks and stacks of Jane Austen books to choose from?

9. Diane Setterfield... we need more like The Thirteenth Tale, yes? We do.

10. J.K. Rowling... I would love another series... something completely un-Harry Potter related. Something a total surprise. How fun would that be!

What authors would you put on your list? Head on over to The Broke and the Bookish to link up and to see what everyone else is saying!


  1. I haven't read the Twilight series but I have read Host. I'd like to see her try another stand alone science fiction.

  2. I always thought there were supposed to be a sequel to The Host... And, yes, more from Diane Setterfeld! It has been FOREVER! Now, if my copy of John Green's book would just arrive...

  3. Rowling and Meyer are on my list too. They have become so popular and so secretive I wish they would reveal stuff more openly.


  4. woo hoo! love it. Lots of the same authors are on my list as well :) Also, a Cinder giveaway if you know anyone who is interested!


  5. Hey, I think we agree on all of these! Well, except Wilkie Collins as I'm not sure who that is at the moment. ;) Did I even spell that right?

  6. Ooh, Diane Setterfield! Great picks. I'm kind of interested to see if Stephenie Meyer ever gets another book out.

  7. OOOHOOOHHH!!!! I couldn't think of ANYONE for my own post and I should've thought of DONNA WOOLFOLK CROSS!!! OMG! Loved Pope Joan (and even have the movie to watch on DVR).

  8. great list and yes I would like a surprise from JK. I would like to see Stephanie Meyer try something new too. I liked the Host better than Twilight. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  9. I would love a new, totally different series from JKR, too. :) And even though I'm not a big Stephanie Meyer fan I think it would be sad if she didn't write anything else. Both of them must feel a ton of pressure for whatever they do next! But even an ok book by someone I like is better than no book. :)

  10. We have 4 in common and since I only listed 5... I hope Stephenie Meyer hasn't quite either. I'd really like her to finish The Host series and cough**MidnightSun**cough.

  11. Good call on Donna Woolfolk Cross. You also inspired me to write a Top Ten on Tuesday today as I thought of some authors. I didn't have any the same, but could easily have added Cross and Zusak. I only included one dead author.

  12. New follower here! I have some of the same ones as you - here's my Top 10: http://www.theonceandfuturelibrarian.blogspot.com/2012/01/top-10-tuesday-authors-i-want-to-see.html

  13. I wonder if it's a quit-while-you're-ahead thing with Meyer and Rowling. I mean, after the incredible success of TWILIGHT and HP, what else could possibly compare?

  14. Rowling, how did I not think of her! The only reason I didn't have Green and Zusak on my list is because I know they both have new books coming out soon, but not soon enough!
