Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s list:
Top Ten Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book
1. J. R. R. Tolkien: All Tolkien lovers know that the main problem with The Lord of the Rings is that it is much too short. I would love another volume. Or another book like The Children of Hurin that elaborates on a tale from The Silmarillion. Or just a complete Silmarillion.
2. L. M. Montgomery: Montgomery was a very prolific writer who gave us a number of memorable characters, but I would love to read another series by her any day.
3. Chaim Potok: His books are heartfelt, thought-provoking, and moving. There are just too few of them.
4. Harper Lee: It might be hard to follow To Kill a Mockingbird, but I think anyone would appreciate the effort.
5. Charlotte Bronte: She’s my favorite Bronte sister. Even though there are still books of hers I haven’t read, such as Shirley, adding another one to my TBR pile would be wonderful.
6. Alexandre Dumas: No one writes adventures and political intrigue like Dumas.
7. Merrie Haskell: The Princess Curse completely left itself open for a sequel that readers would devour.
8. Trenton Lee Stewart: I think the adventures of the Mysterious Benedict Society are rightly over, but there must be tons of other stories reader to leap from Stewart’s imagination.
9. Gail Carson Levine: I have loved her books since I read Ella Enchanted. A Tale of Two Castles needs a sequel.
10. Robin McKinley: Her books can be hit or miss, so I would love her to write another one, in case it’s a winner.
