Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish (but I participated only sporadically). This week's topic is to reveal popular authors whose works we've never read before. To be more specific (and because I mainly read from this genre), I decided to cut it down a bit to YA authors only. For further explanation, other awesome entries and upcoming topics, go here.
But THOSE are the authors whose works I ACTUALLY, REALLY WANT to read. I swear! I really want to read their books, and there were lots of times where I've almost succumbed to the MEGA hype of their books, but SOMEHOW I just haven't got the right time (or the right mood) to actually sit down and stuck my nose inside their amazing, beautiful, spectacular works. Ha. Excuses, excuses.

TWO YA historical fiction books of her are highly praised by, well, almost EVERYONE. So why haven't you read any of them?! Truthfully, I'm a bit scared about the emotional roallercoaster that I'm going to experience when reading her books. Lots of people CRIED reading Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire! I need to prepare myself first!
Okay, hear me, hear me. I actually have read several chapters of Cinder, but at that time it just didn't interest me enough to continue reading them (WHAT). Now that next two books, Scarlet and Cress are out, I really, really, REALLY want to go back to reading Cinder so I can read the next two books and actually understand what people are gushing about! I'm especially curious about Cress because it's a Rapunzel retelling! Do I really need to read the books in order? Can I just skip the first two books? :(

I KNOW, RIGHT. I've practically known almost ALL of the storyline in The Book Thief from the oh-it's-everywhere-on-my-dash Tumblr, and I've recommended the book to a lot of friends, but I HAVE NEVER ACTUALLY READ IT! What a hypocrite, Tirta. Right.

This is the exception. I know many people WORSHIPPED this fcition but I don't think I will ever want to read Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, for some unknown reasons. I've watched the movie and I think it was a 'meh'.... a lil bit overrated, even? DON'T THROW SOMETHING AT ME I'm just trying to be honest! Ahahahahaha I'm clearly on the minority side, here.
Books from this author that I'm (not) interested in: Well... The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
SO, which one do you think I should read ASAP? Help me with your opinions! I'm sure lots of you have read the works of these authors above (eh, do we share some on this list?), WHOSE BOOKS I need to make a PRIORITY?
