{bookish confessions} Books I Haven't Read by My Favorite Authors


Well well well, look what I have today - a new feature on The Regal Critiques, called bookish confessions.

In these posts I'll be confessing all kinds of things I'm ashamed of that have to do with reading - think of: popular authors I have no interest in, unpopular opinions etc. Although, knowing myself this might be the one and only time I actually write one of these confession posts, because I always get excited about something new, and then forget all about it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But! Do not let that ruin our fun today - in this edition of bookish confessions I will be sharing seven authors I want to hug so badly (only if they consent though. Pls, do not hug/touch/etc. people without asking, it ain't cool, not even if they're famous authors) because I adore their work. However, and I'm ashamed to admit this, there are some books I haven't yet read by them, BUT I WILL, so it's ok!? Right!? RIGHT.

let's chat!
Have you read everything by your favorite authors? Who are they and what have you read slash haven't read yet by them? Disliked anything by them? (Hate when that happens...)

  1. This is a bigger problem for me with new favorites, but mostly, it's because I don't have the books, nor are they available on my eLibrary. It's also easy for old books to slip through the cracks. I bought a bunch of Jessi Kirby books when they were on sale, and have still not read them. I seem to have an aversion to reading my own books.

    1. Yes, it's definitely a more common problem with my new favorites! Also, I seem to function like this - the longer I owned or even had a book on my tbr, the harder it is for me to buy it and/or pick it up. Going Bovine for instance suffers from this, BUT I've just bought it, so I'm hoping to change that.

  2. I want to gobble up absolutely everything my Taylor Jenkins Reid. I swear, the woman can do no wrong! I started with One True Loves (loved it), moved on to The Seven usbands of Evelyn Hugo (an all time favorite) and just last month read Forever, Interrupted. Thank goodness she has a backlist because I know I need more, more, more. :)

    1. I'm incredibly excited for Taylor Jenkins Reid's other novels - Maybe in Another Life was cute and unique, while The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is 1000% one of my all time faves. I'm also so excited for her upcoming title! :)

  3. This is such an interesting post theme! It totally made me reflect on how many books by my favorite authors I still have to read. I thought Rick Riordan was an author I'd have read everything, but then I remembered I still have to read his newest book in the Trials of Apollo series. I don't know why I've been procrastinating that one for so long, but I really should just read it already.
    Taylor Jenkins Reid has been all over the bookish community this year. I really should read some more reviews and figure out which books I should start with, since I believe she writes mostly adult, and I hardly ever read those.
    Anyway, great post, Veronika! It's a very interesting topic to think about!

    1. Thank you! I love Rick Riordan and I need to continue the Trials of Apollo series, shamefully I've only read the first book. OOh, you should definitely give Taylor Jenkins Reid a chance - The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is hands down one of my all time favorite novels.

  4. Excepting two authors, you've read a lot of books by your favourite authors over the ones you still need to read! So I think you're doing pretty well :) I hope you'll be able to get to the rest of them soon though! I didn't realise the authour of the seven husbands of evelyn hugo had so many books already released DD: I knew it wasn't her debut but I didn't know she had that many novels already...

    1. I'm so excited Taylor Jenkins Reid has so many books - but yes, I was also surprised when I first looked her up on the bookdepo. :O I'm definitely ready for more by her, so I actually wish she had even more haha.

  5. I am TERRIBLE at keeping up with authors. It is kind of like how I cannot seem to finish series, I just can't seem to focus on one author, do matter how much I love them. It's hard to juggle the act of reading everything from your favorite authors while also diversifying and trying debuts and newer authors.

    Right now, my biggest shame is not having read Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo yet. I read the Grisha series and Six of Crows, but I have yet to finish the series. The same thing goes with A Conjuring of Magic and Vicious by V. E. Schwab.

    Like you, I loved Illuminae and These Broken Stars, but I haven't read any other books by her yet. I just I have a lot of catching up to do!

    1. THIS!! Exactly - it's hard to juggle all that; obviously I aim to read diversely, but also like to binge series that are already out AND of course there are all the new releases, not to mention books for review... on top of all that hunting down every book by my faves is HARD.

      Aah, I love the SoC duology SO MUCH, but I still need to read the Grisha trilogy! I wasn't that excited, tbh, but now with the tv show coming I simply have to.
