Top 10 Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book
debut authors, authors who seem to have taken a hiatus, OR for those who read classics authors you wish would have written another book before they passed
- Kate Morton. I read and loved The Forgotten Garden about a year ago but couldn't get in to her other novels. So as lame as this is, I'm waiting on another one of hers that I adore, because she really is a genius story-teller.
- Anne Brashares. I know she's written a new Sisterhood novel but what I REALLY wish she would write is a sequel to My Name is Memory. I heard a rumor it was the first book in a trilogy, but for now it appears to be a stand-alone, which is cool because it was so awesome; however, I would LOVE to see what else she has planned for the characters.
- Elizabeth Haydon. I read and really enjoyed the first three Symphony of Ages books, then collected a few others. At one point she published what was touted as the first book in a new spin-off series, but hasn't published anything new in years, which makes me sad.
- V.C. Andrews. The book you may have seen on the shelves in the last years? They aren't written by V.C. Andrews. Virginia died years ago and since then the ghost-writer her family hired has slowly, in my opinion, completely ruined the work she did to build her name as a modern-day Gothic writer. She gave a few interviews before she passed away that leads fans to think she was going to write something totally different; sadly, she never got to do so. In her day, VCA published some amazing books, like Flowers in the Attic, and it's those books that I pine for.
- David Eddings. He has since passed on after writing the Belgariad and Mallorean series, which were part of my introduction to sci-fi/fantasy. One day I'd love to reread them. He wrote a couple other series but I'm sad he won't ever get to write any more.
- Victoria Schwab. I read, loved, gave away, talked about, and worshipped The Near Witch. She has another book supposed to be out in 2013 but that is TOO FAR AWAY. Plus, V is totally amazingly awesome.
- Suzanne Collins. The Hunger Games trilogy was too incredible for words, and I know she's done some MG stuff but I NEED SOMETHING ELSE. Preferably a companion to the THG series with some changes to canon so that my personal canon fits, but still...
- J.K. Rowling. I will forever love, adore, and cherish Harry Potter but I miss having new books by her to read, and I only hope that one day she decides to write something else for us to enjoy.
- James Clemens. I LOVED his The Banned and the Banished series but after that, he wrote two books then fell off the face of the earth - no website updates, no new books, etc.
- Jane Austen. I've only read P&P from her but it was so wonderful, moving, and just awesome. Her other novels are on my list but P&P has me wishing she had lived long enough to publish many other novels.
