Top Ten Authors I Wish Would Write Another

  1. Jandy Nelson – The Sky is Everywhere.  Enough said. ~m
  2. Carolyn Rivers – She wrote the book Virgins, then the follow up Girls Forever Brave and True.  V was better but I loved them both.   ~m
  3. Kathleen Applegate – I realize she still writes but I want a book for her “Making Out” series.  (I read it in high school, give me a break :P) I loved it; so much in fact I remember when I read them I was convinced it was a real town I wanted to visit that I wrote her about it.  She sent me a signed bookmark. 🙂 ~m
  4. J. K. Rowling – um  hello, you don’t need a reason other than she is J. K. Freaking Rowling. (you know I have a HP obsession) ~m (I concur, especially if it’s in the same universe as Potter. ~d)
  5. Gretchen McNeil – I just finished Possess and it was AWESOME!!!  I really hope there is more to that story! ~m
  6. Jennifer Cruise –I love her so much but her books are getting further apart, or at least to me they are.  . . 😦 ~m
  7. Harper Lee — The only book she wrote, To Kill a Mockingbird, is my favorite.  It made such a huge impact on me and most people who read it (although, I cannot give you any kinds of statistics).  Imagine if she wrote more. ~d
  8. Jane Austen — Of course.  Only, what, six books?  Not enough. NOT NEARLY ENOUGH. ~d
  9. Brenda Janowitz — Wrote Scot on the Rocks  and Jack with a Twist, two books in my top 20, both hilarious & sweet.  I really wish she would write more. ~d
  10. Laurie Viera Rigler — Wrote Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, about two fans of Jane Austen, one in 19th century England and the other a contemporary American, who switch lives.  Very good books, both of which I loved.  And now I think I want to reread. ~d

    Rowling is on my list too, I wish she would write another series or at least release some information.

    Great list.

    I had JK Rowling and Harper Lee on mine as well. Jane Austen had great works; it’s a shame that we don’t have more.

    I’m gonna probably need to hang my head in shame for this, but I’ve NEVER read To Kill a Mockingbird. Maybe I should make a pact with J.K. Rowling: if she writes more, I’ll read To Kill a Mockingbird.
