A Dozen Authors We Still Want to Lay an Egg On

Posted April 12, 2022 by elzaread in Top Ten Tuesday / 62 Comments

Greetings you guys! It’s late on Monday night and my Mommy wants to go to sleep. BUT we cannot miss two TTT in a row, so she just has to stay awake for a few more minutes. Luckily this week’s prompt can be handled with a few Canva grids and still count as a full post. Authors I haven’t read, but still want to. 

Oh my Mommy’s list is way more than 10. To get all our grids to match nicely and to get a clever title for our post, we will go with 12 today! Just for good measure and to pretend this whole post didn’t take us but 15minutes, we will add the book we wan to read by named author as well.

  • Simone St. James
  • Ali Hazelwood
  • Andy Weir (the fact that we are currently reading Project Hail Mary doesn’t count as has read. We are still busy)


  • Barbara Kingslover
  • Kate Atkinson
  • Elizabeth Wein


  • Julie Mulhern
  • Caroline Graham
  • Julian Fellowes (Why did I think he is a she? He looks an awful lot like the author in Magpie Murders. Perhaps our imagination is just getting the better of us.)


  • Anne Perry
  • Elizabeth Peters
  • Patricia Wentworth

  1. Diane

    What a lovely post – I loved seeing the photos of each author along with their books. St. James, Atkinson and Weir are highly recommended. I hope to read Project Hail Mail later this month.

  2. So many good ones here! I used to love Kingslover’s books. St. James and Hazelwood are newer to me and I’m going to be reading every new release of theirs. I hope you love all of these authors when you get to them.

  3. So many good books on your TTT list! I loved both The Love Hypothesis and Project Hail Mary. Hope you get a chance to read them soon. And thanks for commenting on my blog earlier. 🙂

  4. Great list! I love Julie Mulhern, Patricia Wentworth and Elizabeth Peters but the others are all ones that I want to read – especially Julian Fellowes

    • Hi Emma!

      I don’t currently have any Kingslover books on my Kindle or even on my shelf, but I will try to get one or two.

      I’m loving Project Hail Mary so far and I think the Audio recording is really good.

    • Hi there Vidya!

      I honestly don’t know how I am ever going to read all the books and authors I still want to read. Maybe one day we will actually stop worrying about it!

      Will go and take a look at your list now.

  5. Love this list! I haven’t yet read Julian Fellowes books – but I know he’s a cracking writer as he wrote the screenplay for Gosford Park, which is one of my alltime favourite films. And Caroline Grahme writes the series that Midsomer Murders is based on… a favourite ongoing TV series that has been running a very long time. Life After Life is a remarkable read – I tucked into it longer ago than I care to recall and absolutely loved it. Not so keen on her murder mystery series, however. Hope you get a chance to read some of these very soon:)).
