Top Ten Tuesday: Books By My Favorite Authors That We Still Haven’t Read #travelingfriendsread #BookBloggers

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  This week’s topic is: Books by my favorite authors that I still haven’t read.

Daisy in ChainsDaisy in Chains by Sharon J. Bolton

Norma and I have read a couple of books by Sharon Bolton and she has become one of our favourite authors. We do still have a few books that we haven’t read but this one is high on our list to read.

A Noise DownstairsA Noise Downstairs by Linwood Barclay

Linwood Barclay is a go-to author for both Norma and I and we have read most of his books.  This one has been sitting on our EW shelves for quite some time. He never disappoints so we should just get to it and read it soon.

Women TalkingWomen Talking by Miriam Toews

Women Talking just recently caught our eye and Norma and I both just went out and bought the book.  This one is on the top of our list to get to soon.


All We Ever WantedAll We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin

Norma and I have been reading Emily Giffin books faithfully for years which started out with the Something Borrowed series and loved them so much that we are always excited to see when she has a new release out. Norma has read all of her books except for this one and is really excited to get to it. I gifted Norma my copy of this book as I know how excited she is to read this author. I still have a few books to read by Emily Giffin to catch-up to Norma!

Us Against You (Beartown, #2)Us Against You by Fredrik Backman

Fredrik Backman became a favourite after reading A Man Called Ove and Beartown just clinched him as one.  We just bought this book and love having them in our book stash.  Us Against You is one that is sitting high on our shelves to read.

Winter GardenWinter Garden by Kristin Hannah

This was a much loved Traveling Sisters Group read that we all absolutely loved except for the fact that Norma wasn’t able to fit this one in and ever since it has been on her radar and she is desperate to read it sometime soon.

Home FrontHome Front by Kristin Hannah

This has been one I have been meaning and wanting to read for quite some time. I know I will just love this and there will be just the right time for me to dive into this one.

Two RiversTwo Rivers by T. Greenwood

After reading Where I Lost Her which became one of Norma’s all-time favourite books. T. Greenwood became a favourite author of Norma’s and has read a few others and really enjoyed them. She describes T. Greenwood’s writing style as so relatable and it feels like she is writing just for her that is how well Norma connects with her storytelling. We really want to read this one as we’ve heard lots of good things about it.

Iron HouseIron House by John Hart

After reading Redemption Road, John Hart became a favorite for us and after reading we were hooked.  We quickly bought some of his backlist and they are on the top of our list to read.


The Husband's SecretThe Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

Why I haven’t read this one yet, I really don’t know.  I have carried this book back and forth with me so many times when I traveled but I just haven’t read it yet.  This is one I am going to find the right time for and with the new one coming out I really want to read this and the new one.Computer BooksBrenda – So I really think I need to lock myself in a room with all these books and not come out till they are read.  I also need not to open that NetGalley page till I have read some of these title.  I think it’s funny how I own so many books by my favourite authors and I seem to hold on to them and not read them.  It’s like I want to keep them close and just have them to look at, hug and available just for that perfect time to read each one.   It’s comforting to know they are there waiting for me to read them when I need that comfort.

Norma – So I have pretty much the same much-loved “book problems” as Brenda does but where we might differ a little bit is how we decide what to read. I have a collection of books by my favourite authors just like Brenda and we both pretty much feel the same way about our books but my feelings really play a huge part in what I choose to read. A favourite author I have to read right away and nothing can stand in my way – sometimes not even Brenda. But boy does she try! Lol Books definitely call my name whether it being a favourite author, an appealing cover or an enticing title. That’s what comforts me knowing that I can walk into my rooms where I store by books and that one book that is standing out and making me feel that’s it’s saying, “please read me next” has such a wonderful appeal to me.

Do you like to hold on to some of your favorite authors books just for that perfect time? Are you a mood and emotionally reader like Norma?  What books by your favorite authors have you not read?  Drop us a comment.  We would love to hear from you!

  1. Some good choices here, some I have read, some I have not, some that don’t interest me. I agree with your John Hart choice. I am also looking for some of his backlist after listening to Redemption Road. My problem is not that I want to hold onto those books, it is finding the time to read them. I have 2 huge bookcases full of books and I have so many ARCs that I will never get them all finished. I do have many of Kristin Hannah’s books and I keep saying I am going to get to them.

    1. Yeah I know what you are talking about Realistically I couldn’t possibly read all the books I own plus the ARC I have and keep getting. But I come to realize I am good at living in denial!! Lol

  2. You HAVE to read The Husband’s Secret!! An excellent book with the best epilogue I’ve read to date!!
    I want to read a Kristan Hannah book desperately! I wish I could read all day long and neglect all of the mundane responsibilities of life. 😌
    Yes, I hold onto books by my favorite authors but not on purpose. I intend to read them but I keep buying more books and next thing you know they get shoved aside somewhere. But I eventually get around to reading them.
    I am very much a mood reader and I’m so happy to have a variety of authors and genres available for my reading pleasure. Sometimes I read several books of different genres at a time so I can switch to one or another based on my mood.
    I need to get around to my books by Kate Hewitt. I LOVE her books and seriously need to get to reading them.

    1. I am for sure putting The Husband’s Secret on the top of my list. So many people tell me I have to read it. I need to listen. I just love Kristin Hannah and I do have more of her books I want to read! I hope you get a chance to read one of her books.

      It’s so easy to buy new and and the other get put aside. But we always have them!

      I hope you get some great reading time in soon!! Happy Reading!!

  3. My Husband’s Secret is so good! It is a must read! Yes I do the same thing. I HAVE to buy a book, I just can’t stand not to have it. Why??? I don’t know because it will sit on my shelf for months. I know I can’t get to it but I like to see it there. It just makes me happy to know it is there.

    1. I really enjoyed My Husband’s Secret as well, Kim and I passed my book onto Brenda so I am really happy to see that she added it here on our Top 10 list this week. I tend to feel the same way as you do and have to buy the book too even if it just sits on my shelf for months. It makes me so happy to just see it there on my shelf. 🙂

  4. Great list! Brenda, you have GOT to read The Husband’s Secret. I know I’ve said it before, but it’s a top favorite of mine and has stayed that way even as my “Read” list continues to grow! I’m betting there are some Friends who haven’t read it yet that’ll join in if you mention it

    Norma, I recently purchased Winter Garden! (Along with 2 other KH books)
    I sense a buddy/sister read coming up 🤗

  5. I enjoyed reading this! I have a favourite “Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance” by Ruth Emmie Lang (Thank you Brenda). I am never going to let that book leave my shelf except to share it with others of course 🙂
