That I've never read.
10. Stephenie Meyer.
(Thank goodness). I can't even spell her name without looking it up. There are a few logical reasons as to why I've never read anything of her's though - let me explain. Vampire romance. I think those two words work? ;)
9. J.K. Rowling.
As much as I would like to read Harry Potter, I haven't done it. And watching the movies doesn't count. Sometime or other I'll buy the series, even for the sake of just reading such an acclaimed series. And because everyone says her plot weaving is superb.
8. Stephen King.
Why am I putting all the really popular authors up at the top? Because they're the ones that matter least to me. I've never read any of Stephen King's, and for the most part I don't plan to do so.
7. George R.R. Martin.
His books are hardly fit (content wise) for a teenager to read. Enough said?
6. William Goldman.
For as many times as I've looked at that book on Amazon, you would have thought I'd have bought the Princess Bride by now. But I haven't, and therefore I still haven't read any of William Goldman's work. Have any of you read the the Princess Bride?
5. Anne Elisabeth Stengl.
Popular enough, right? I would certainly like to read the Goldstone Wood series, and the first book might honestly reach my top ten to read list. But, as always, I'm such a procrastinator from reading anything.
4. William Shakespeare.
While he's technically a playwright, reading his scripts seems the thing to do. Although I did read a bit of MacBeth at one time (or rather, it was read to me).
3. Jane Austen.
Seeing as I don't read much Romance/Romance related books, it makes sense that I never read a Jane Austen. Nor have I ever finished watching a movie adaption. The movies have always brought me into a mire of boredom, about which time I hit the off button.
2. John Green.
I've been wanting to read the Fault In Our Stars since it came out (what, two years ago?) I've been wanting to read it. And it's still sitting on my to-read list.
1. Charles Dickens.
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Never once have I read a Charles Dickens. Impossible, you say? I guess I'm the exception. And in this case, being the exception isn't fun. For the sake of all that's writerly good, I must read Little Dorrit, or at least Oliver Twist!
Truth is, I've actually read Oliver Twist, but it was abbreviated. Talk about dumbing down society!
