Antonia’s Top Ten Tuesday: Books With X on the Cover

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 with [___] On the Cover (Pick a thing (a color, an item, a place, an animal, a scripty font, a sexy person, etc.) and share covers that have that thing on the cover.) I’ve decided to do books with stars on the cover.

Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Authors I Want to Read for the First Time

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. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is ten authors that I haven’t read but would like to.

Jenn Lyons
I have the first four books in the Chorus of Dragons series and I really want to read them this year.

Emily Tesh
I have Silver in the Wood as an ebook. I am eager to read it and I’m also very much looking forward to her 2023 novel, Some Desperate Glory.

Alexandria Bellefleur
I’ve heard great things about her Written in the Stars series. I’ve been on the lookout for new romance. So, I have added this author to my collection.

C.J. Tudor
On a trip to Barnes & Nobel, I found The Burning Girls. I almost bought it but added it to my library TBR instead. I’ve since seen some good reviews for Tudor’s other books as well and I’d like to try the audiobooks sometime soon.

Martha Wells
I want to read the Murderbot Diaries so badly.

Octavia E. Butler
I bought Parable of the Sower last year. It’s definitely higher up on my TBR list.

Robin Hobb
I don’t know that I’ll actually read Hobb any time soon, but I do want to eventually try some of her fantasy stories.

Mariana Zapata
Target compelled me to buy some books from them and I found From Lukov with Love while browsing. I’ve seen great reviews for Zapata’s books.

Nina Varela
I want to read Crier’s War and its sequel. I have the ebook and I’m pretty sure my library has the sequel.

Ann Leckie
I really want to take some time to read some older science fiction like Ancillary Justice.

A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos

Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin

Most of these are adult fantasy and I’m intimidated to start a bunch of new series that are adult fantasy. Most of these are also pretty thick books. Are there any books you own that you haven’t picked up because they’re intimidating?
