Gooooood Morning readers, bit of a sad start to this Tuesday morning because after two and a bit years I have made the decision to shut my review request box. It’s been something I’ve been thinking of doing for months now just to get on top of everything. I have too many books to read on my TBR list and so many just living in my email inbox that it’s time to get it all sorted out. Don’t hate me – I’ve just let it get a little too out of control. I hope to reopen it in January but we’ll have to see.
Today’s Top Ten tuesday is author’s I would really like to see write another book/ read their sophomore novel because I am desperate to read more from these wonderful authors.
Paula Hawkins (The Girl on the Train)
I adored The Girl on the Train and am really excited to see if another book materialises. I know that some readers didn’t like it as much as I did – totally raved over it but – I want to see more.
Stephen Chbosky (Perks of being a wallflower)
I adored this book and I am so ready to read more but there’s nothing for me to- I really cannot wait to read another beautiful novel by Chbosky.
Virginia McGregor (What Milo Saw)
I believe there’s one in the pipeline but I’m going to have to wait for it I think which makes for a sad but very excited reader
Maria Semple (Where’d ya go Bernaette)
Time to mention one I haven’t quite got round to yet but definitely need to. Although I found where’d ya go Bernadette a little difficult to read I thought the writing style was really interesting and I think maybe with a different storyline I may enjoy this even more.
Cordelia Jensen (Skyscraping)
One of my closest friends Leanne sent me this book and wrote the loveliest message in the front cover – I’m yet to review it but I will and I will definitely be waiting excitedly for the next installment.
Emma Healey ( Elizabeth is Missing)
I think Elizabeth is Missing was Healey’s debut novel – correct me if I’m wrong but I absolutely adored her book and if she’s written annnnnnnything else I need to get my mitts on it soon.
Simon Pont (Remember to Breathe)
I’ve mentioned this book over and over and over (and over) but if he could just write some more fiction books I would be a happy bunny.
Piper Kerman (Orange is the new black)
I have FINNNNAAAALLLY caught up with OITNB (which I have watched in just over two weeks – I was sick don’t judge.) I did read the book before and reading more from her would just be wonderful.
Morgan Matson (Amy & Rodger’s Epic Detour)
I know there are two books out but I am stillllllll yet to get round to them although they are rather high in my tbr. I will get round to it sooooooooon.
J.D Brick (Tangled Up in Blue)
Finally I’m picking this wonderful author who has promised to send me her sophomore novel when it’s finished but for now I’m waiting here empty handed. (Sad Face)
Any of you that read my blog yesterday will know currently I am dying of lack of sleep although I made it almost allllll the way through last night so imma going to try and make it through today and then get an early-ish night. As always let me know your thoughts and link me up with your wonderful lists!

Oh man, DEFINITELY read Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. I loved it even more than Amy & Roger. also Cordelia Jensen’s book is really good – it is written in poetry which I usually don’t like, but it worked for that book. Hope you get around to reading those authors soon!

It is sad to see another blog close its doors to book request yet understandable. When anyone can write a book, they usually do.
On another note, I like your list. There are some authors that keep you interested even through lesser they may pen. For instance, I love Connie Willis and though not all her books are great, I find myself drooling for the next one.
I promise you it’s something I’ve put off for the last year? But Recently I’ve reviewed books and them that day ten more Come in and my anxiety is through the roof! My mail box just needs a sort and then hopefully in two months ish I’ll be back up!!
Glad you like the list will have to check out Connie Willis any suggestions?
On another note.. Having so many review requests is stopping me reading books I desperately want to read and that’s not what this blog was supposed to be about I guess 😦
I don’t know how Hawkins didn’t end up on my list!
Check out my TTT and the weekly meme I hosting on my blog Music Monday.
I’ve heard so much about The Girl on the Train but haven’t read it yet. I’ve heard it compared to Gone Girl though so that excites me 🙂
You should definitely read it – I know some didn’t like it but I thought it was excellent!
I didn’t realise OITNB was a book. How did the series fair against the book? I can totally sympathise on your review requests. I have recently been turning down a lot because I have so many still to review. Hopefully you can catch up, then open up again. I hope you enjoy the books on your tbr list.
This was a great topic for Top Ten Tuesday, adding these to my to read list. Apparently I did it all wrong and made my top ten debut novels.Check it out anyway. at http://myroadtoperfectharmony.com/top-ten-tuesday/
