Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl asks us to share the cause of how we’ve added certain books to our physical TBR piles. I decided to focus on ten books I bought because I loved their author’s earlier work:

  1. Threatened by Eliot Schrefer, because of Endangered
  2. Sleeping at the Starlite Motel: and Other Adventures on the Way Back Home by Bailey White, because of Mama Makes Up Her Mind and Other Dangers of Southern Living
  3. The Blue Shoe: A Tale of Thievery, Villainy, Sorcery, and Shoes by Roderick Townley, because of The Great Good Thing
  4. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, because of Eleanor & Park
  5. Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo, because of Because of Winn-Dixie (and others)
  6. The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo, because of Beastgirl and Other Origin Myths
  7. Odes by Sharon Olds, because of The Dead and the Living
  8. The Great Spring: Writing, Zen, and This Zigzag Life by Natalie Goldberg, because of Writing Down the Bones
  9. The Lost Continent by Bill Bryson, because of A Walk in the Woods
  10. Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, because of Housekeeping

How often do you buy books from an author, perhaps without giving it your normal amount of consideration, simply because you loved one of their previous works?
