Top Ten Tuesday is a prompt for a list of 10 things related to books. It was originally hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The prompt this week is: Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read
I have never participated in a Top Ten Tuesday before, but I have loved reading this tag all day that I had to participate.

Obviously if you read my review today of The Boneless Mercies, then you’ve heard me rave about this author. I love her books because they’re dark fantasy tales filled with awesome characters. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is on my list of all time favorite novels, and I definitely suggest it if you haven’t read it. Her writing is gothic and poetic in that book, so I have stalked her ever since I read it. The only book I haven’t read by her is Wink Poppy Midnight
I had Vampire Academy sitting on my shelf for years before I finally read it. Once I finished I bought the whole series on kindle and finished the 6 books in 2 days. I have also read all six books in the Bloodlines series and the first two books in The Glittering Court series. Richelle Mead has written a ton of books and I could probably fill this whole list with unread books by her. The books she has written that I want to read the most are Soundless, which is a standalone, and The Emerald Sea which is the 3rd book in The Glittering Court series. I haven’t been able to get ahold of a copy of Soundless since my library doesn’t have it, but I should be able to get a copy of The Emerald Sea.
I discovered Laini Taylor after reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I loved it. She has such a wild imagination and really brings fantasy books to life. Since everyone has been talking about how much they want Muse of Nightmares. I recently read Strange the Dreamer and loved that one as well. I haven’t finished the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy and I haven’t read Muse of Nightmares because it’s not out yet and I wasn’t lucky enough to get a review copy. These are all high on my TBR.
I have read a few of Holly Black’s books and really liked them. I loved Tithe, The Cruel Prince and White Cat. I want to read the sequels to these books, but I will leave The Wicked King off of the list because it’s not out yet.
I really loved Queen of Someday and The Canary Club. I was so thrilled to find that Demons Lie was on Netgalley, and they gave me a copy. So this is one that I get to read pretty soon, which is awesome.

This is an indie author that I actually discovered on Instafreebie. I got to read Trials of Magic for free and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I would love to read any of his books as I loved his writing, but for this list I would love to read the next installment in The Hundred Halls series. (If you want to read Trials of Magic then follow this link, it’s still free.)
