Top Ten Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book

10. Daniel Defoe – anyone who has read Roxana knows that ending was bullocks. Would love to see what Defoe would have written without the influence of his society.

9. Markus Zusak – have you read The Book Thief? Because you need to. Seriously.

8. Margaret Atwood – I’m sure it’s on its way, but my goodness am I anxious for the next part in the MaddAdams series!

7. Suzanne Collins – okay, Mockingjay only came out a year ago. But it was a long year ago.

6. O. R. Melling – she wrote the first faery novels I ever read. Bonus: she’s Canadian!

5. Naoko Takeuchi – more Sailor Moon? More Mamoru/Usagi? YES PLEASE!

4. Diana Wynne Jones – she was a master of fantasy. I am never disappointed when I read one of her novels and there is always something memorable about them.

3. Robert Jordan – I always had a feeling he would pass before he finished his amazing series, The Wheel of Time. I just wish I had been wrong.

2. Jane Austen – I mean, come on. Who wouldn’t want another Jane Austen book?

1. J.K. Rowling – bonus points if it’s set in the Harry Potter world!

  1. Hi yes, I am pretty much in love with your blog. BECAUSE YOU HAVE TASTE! VERY GOOD TASTE and I am now typing in all caps like a winner.

    Seriously, I would love for more Sailor Moon and more Markus Zusak and pretty much every single author you mentioned except OR Melling and Defoe, because I haven’t read them yet.

      OH MY GOODNESS MY FIRST FAN-LIKE COMMENT I AM IN ALL CAPS TOO BECAUSE :DDDDD I was starting to become afraid that my tastes were vastly different than the regular YA tastes

      I wouldn’t exactly recommend Defoe. I had to read him for a lit class. It’s one of the better books I’ve had to read for a lit class, but not like super amazing, unless you’re into the classics. OR Melling I would definitely recommend though! Check out The Hunter’s Moon which is one of the only books I can remember reading when I was in grade school. Like I can remember every scene because it was that brilliant.

    Ok…your blog has wizards and accio at the top; mine is called A Reader’s Pensieve. HI WE ARE BEST FRIENDS NOW

    In all seriousness, though, I would love to read more by JKR, Austen, and Collins. Love them all, but really, all I want is more Harry Potter.

  3. commonreader says:

    Markus Zusak is on my list too! I can’t wait until his new book is out.

  4. Great list! Markus Zusak completely slipped my mind when I wrote out my list for this week, The Book Thief was fantastic! I also wished that Jane Austen had written more novels. And yes re: Naoko Takeuchi (thank goodness they’re re-releasing the Sailor Moon manga atm, hehe).

    Here’s my TTT this week if you’re interested in checking it out: http://www.rulethewaves.net/blog/?p=3328

    More Sailor Moon? I’m pretty sure my 15 year old self just fan-girled out for a moment! Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system… great list! i wish all these folks would start pecking away on their computers and bringing us new bits of happiness! Wow, that was a dorky sentence! 🙂

  6. Jeyna Grace says:

    Yes, Rowling should write another book!

  7. I had Zusak on my list and then I took him off – somehow, even just putting him on the list made me feel like I was rushing him! It’s been years but I know it’ll be worth they wait. 😉

    And hear hear for Rowling!

    p.s. I only heard of Sailor Moon recently, on a friend’s review of Cinder – we got a lot of Japanese animation growing up but it didn’t sound familiar to me. Maybe we didn’t get that one after all. So it’s also a book/series?

    • megtao says:

      Is he working on another book then? I really hope so o_o

      Sailor Moon is the most popular shojo anime ever so I’m super surprised to hear you didn’t heard of it as a kid.

      It’s a manga (basically a Japanese comic book). I seriously recommend it! They just started rereleasing the manga in English in bookstores.

      • Do you remember when it was on telly? It may have been just after my time (late 80s, early 90s). I was a big fan of Astro Boy and Transformers and Voltron and a host of others I can barely remember!

      • megtao says:

        It was on television in the early 90s. Probably somewhere between ’94-’96

      • Ah. I either missed that one or it was forgettable. Most likely the former! I know it was played on the ABC, which was the only channel we were allowed to watch as kids (no commercials), but maybe I’d grown out of anime by then? I don’t know why this is puzzling me, except that it surprises me there’s one I’m not familiar with. Oh well!

  8. Jillian ♣ says:

    Yay for Jane Austen! I’ve never read Daniel Defoe… but I will. 🙂

    • megtao says:

      I wouldn’t necessarily recommend Defoe. Not unless you’re an 18thC lit fan, though since you like Austen I assume you like it enough. 🙂 He also wrote Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders, though I’ve read neither of them.
