1. Cassandra Clare(The Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices): Okay technically I have read something written by her it just wasn't a book it was a defense piece on Sansa Stark which I loved because well I usually love those type of things and I'm fond of anyone who loves Sansa Stark. But I haven't read any books by her since while the overall plotlines of her series sound interesting I hear there's a lot about love triangles as well which I hate and there's some incest as well which while not a deal breaker for me makes me a bit uncomfortable.
2. Libba Bray(The Gemma Doyle Trilogy, The Diviners, Going Bovine): I've actually have really wanted to read The Gemma Doyle trilogy for years now and there's no real reason as to why I haven't already but I haven't and I also think that The Diviners sound pretty interesting as well. Although I have no real interest in Going Bovine I hear a lot of good things about it.
3. Veronica Roth(Divergent): I have heard a lot about Divergent and in all honesty I'm not all that interested in reading the actual books but I do like seeing the whole sorting characters from other fandoms into the different fractions. So I may try out the movie and see if I have any interest after seeing it in the rest of the series.
4. Lauren Oliver(Delirium): I hear a lot about Delirium in the book blogging community and while it sounds exactly like the type of dystopian I'm not interested in reading I think I'll check it out someday since people's opinions I trust seemed to think this is a great book.
5. Neil Gaiman(Stardust, The Graveyard Book): I haven't read anything by him but I did watch the episode of Doctor Who he wrote which was great so I'm definitely interested in reading some of his work since it sounds interesting and I already know he's a good writer.
6. Lauren DeStefano(The Chemical Garden Trilogy): Wither sounds like it would be interesting but I'm not sure if I'll like it and in all honesty 90% of the reason that I want to read her books is because I read on her blog that she's a fan of Cardcaptor Sakura which is one of my favorite series of all time.
7. Richelle Mead(Vampire Academy): I've heard mixed things about the Vampire Academy books over the years but the trailer for the movie looked funny and my favorite tumblr blogger is a big fan of the series so I might try out the books someday.
8. J.R.R. Tolkein(The Lord of the Rings): I watched all three of The Lord of Rings movies and I hated them therefore I will never read these books which I hear has random songs through out them as well.
9. James Patterson: I think he writes crime novels and I'm not too interested in that or anything I heard about his books so I probably won't be reading them.
10. Sarah Dessen: I've read a lot of the back covers of her books it just seemed like they wouldn't be my thing for one reason or another.
