Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018.
Hi everyone! I’ve been struggling a lot with writing and posting blog posts lately, but I saw Chelsea post her TTT post this morning and I thought “this looks like a fun theme, let’s do this too!” in the hope that writing a fun post like this could get me my blogging spark back! So, here are some books by favorite authors that I still haven’t read yet (and I’m kind of kicking myself for it).
Suffer Love and Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake – I fell in love with Ashley Herring Blake’s writing in How to Make a Wish, but I haven’t picked up any of her other books since because they’re all very hard-hitting, and I’m not really good with hard-hitting books. That’s why Girl Made of Stars isn’t on this list, because I don’t think I can handle reading that one at all. But I really want to get to Suffer Love and Ivy Aberdeen soon.
Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed – I read Amal Unbound by Aisha Saeed at the beginning of the year, and I thought it was incredible. Usually I don’t put authors on my favorites list after reading one middle grade they’ve written, but my friend Fadwa loves this author and this book so much that I kind of fell in love with it and her too.
The Boy in the Black Suit and When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds – Jason Reynolds is, after Rick Riordan, definitely my most read author. These are the only two books of his that I haven’t read yet, and the only reason why I haven’t read them yet is because I love his books as audiobooks, and I don’t currently have access to these audiobooks. Otherwise I’d pick these up right away.
Since You Asked by Maurene Goo – I adored The Way You Make Me Feel and I liked (but also kind of had mixed feelings about) I Believe in a Thing Called Love, so while I would call Maurene Goo a favorite author, this book could definitely change that. So I’m kind of scared to pick it up, especially because I’ve seen some mixed reviews.
This Side of Home by Renée Watson – I read Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson like… a month ago? I think? And the synopsis of this book sounds incredible so I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson – Jacqueline Woodson definitely became my most recent favorite author after I read two of her books this month (Harbor Me and Brown Girl Dreaming). She’s written quite a few books, so a lot of them are on my TBR, but this is the one I’m most interested in.
The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan – I’ve read most books Riordan has written so far (I don’t really care about the novella’s and lost interest in the Kane Chronicles) so this is the only one I have left. I’m not sure why I haven’t picked it up yet.
Solitaire by Alice Oseman – Radio Silence and I Was Born For This are definitely on my favorite-books-ever-list and I’m honestly really scared to pick this one up, because a few of my friends told me they didn’t love this one. And I don’t want to fall out of love with Alice Oseman’s writing.

The Burning Maze was so much fun and a bit of a kicker to the feels too because how could it not be. I need to read Solitaire too. I have owned the ebook forever it seems.
“Another Brooklyn” was amazing!! It’s super short, you can definitely read it in one sitting.
Lots of interesting books here! I hope you can get to them soon. 🙂
Jacqueline Woodson is on my list today, too! I love her, but she has so many books out that I am way, WAY behind. I’m hoping to get to HARBOR ME soon.
I think The Burning Maze is the only Riordan book I’m missing as well, but I only very recently read The Dark Prophecy and The Ship of the Dead… 😀 (The Ship of the Dead was so good though.)
Despite all of the praise Rick Riordan’s books receive, I’ve never read one of his books. Perhaps someday I will remedy this bookworm oversight. Hope you find that blog writing creativity again. 🙂
Nice list of books!! Time for me to explore new titles.
Here’s a link to my TTT post for this week:
Written in the Stars certainly isn’t a fluffy read, but I absolutely loved it! I hope you will as well 🙂
I was a little disappointed by The Burning Maze, I hope you enjoy it more.

I’ve seen Ashley Herring Blake’s books a couple of times this week. I still haven’t read anything from her, or anything by Rick Riordan. The last one is bad… I probably would like his stuff, since I like mythology.
