Popular Authors That I Have Never Read \\ AKA the shameful side of my TBR

Hello Book Ravens!

It’s not unknown that I’m not very good at keeping up with new releases. I read rather slowly, and because I’m trying to read all the cool new books coming out* I tend to forget about older, popular releases.

So I figured I’d make a list – because maybe some of these books are horrible and I dodged a bullet…or maybe I’ve totally missed out on the best book ever.**

I’ve heard a lot of people talking about her third book (or, the third book in her series) that’s coming out soon…but I have literally no idea what it’s about.

It’s dystopian? I think? And I don’t really read much dystopian anymore.

In all honesty, I tried to read Anna and the French Kiss and ended up DNF-ing it at thirty pages. It still makes me angry to think about – and I don’t even remember why.

…I don’t know if there’s anything I can say in my defense.

Besides the fact that I don’t particularly like contemporaries, I’ve just never had the motivation to pick her books up. And when I get them at the library, they just sit on my shelves and gather dust (and overdue fines).

I don’t know how many of these books I’ll actually try to read, but the most likely would be Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes.

That said, don’t hold me to anything. It’s highly unlikely.
