This week's topic was sort of easy and yet not... There are definitely some popular authors I've never read, and then there are some that I think are probably popular, but I don't really know.
1. J.K. Rowling
If you know me well, this makes sense. I wasn't allowed to read Harry Potter when I was younger, and I'm still not a fan of witchcraft, so I doubt I'll ever read Harry Potter.
2. Sarah Dessen
Well, technically, I've read part of one of her books. But I just couldn't get into it, and I've heard that the formula for her novels is pretty much the same.
3. Susane Colasanti
I paged through one of her novels at Barnes & Noble once, but it just seemed weird and all over the place. Characters' actions were inconsistent, and, anyways, I'm not a fan of most YA contemporary romances.
4. Cassandra Clare
Paranormal is definitely not my thing, so, no thank you.
5. Veronica Rossi
*ducks* I think the book blogging community might throw tomatoes at me for this one. I honestly have no interest in the Under the Never Sky trilogy.
6. David Levithan
I've heard a lot about his books, but, to be honest, they don't sound like my cup of tea. Plus, I don't read a lot of co-authored stuff.
7. Ransom Riggs
A lot of people seem to like Miss Peregrine, but it doesn't seem like something I'd enjoy.
8. Libba Bray
The Diviners sounds like I'd have the same objections I have to Harry Potter, and then the synopses for her other books just sound too...weird for me.
9. Meg Cabot
I can hear your gasps. I love The Princess Diaries movies, but I'm doubtful I'd enjoy the books or perhaps anything else she's written.
10. J.R.R. Tolkien
Yup, that's right. I've never read Lord of the Rings. But here's how this author differs from the rest on this list. I plan to get to LotR at some point (hopefully in the near future), and I hope I'll like it.
