Today’s Topic: Backlist Books I Want to Read
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
I may have mentioned this once or twice or a thousand times, but when I find an author I love, I tend to buy/read every single one of their books. So, it isn’t often I end up with a backlist.
But sometimes I just get behind. Or I discover an author I’ve never read before and fall in love. Then I want to binge read through every book they have published as soon as possible. Such is the case with today’s list.
Lorie Langdon & Carey Corp –Doon Series -I ‘ve heard nothing but great things about this series, but have never gotten around to reading it. But after reading two of Langdon’s books in the past year, I think it is time to remedy that.
Susanna Kearsley -I discovered this author last year. I love her mix of contemporary and historical novels and her evocative covers. I’ve only read three of her books so far, so I still have quite a few left on her back list.
Roseanna M White -Ever since reading her historical Culper Ring series, I’ve been a fan. But somehow I’ve gotten behind in reading her newer releases. I need to finish the last book in Ladies of the Manor and start her newest series Shadows Over England.
Jody Hedlund -I love, love, love Jody’s historical fiction books. For the most part I’ve kept up with all of her books, but I still haven’t read books 4 & 5 in her lighthouse series Beacons of Hope.
Rebecca Connolly -I just discovered this author last year and have enjoyed her Regency-lite stories. However, at the rate she is publishing, I’ve fallen behind with her newer releases.
April W. Gardner -Thanks to a recommendation by a blogger I trust I gave this author’s American Indian centered stories a chance. I’m glad I did because I was completely transported to a time in American history that isn’t often featured in novels. But, I still have several more books in the series to finish
Tamera Alexander -Tamera writes incredibly detailed, layered and well researched books. But they are a real time investment for me and I’ve fallen a bit behind in her two Nashville historical series.
Sarah Addison Allen -I was utterly charmed after reading The Girl Who Chased the Moon and quickly added all of her other books to my massive TBR list.
Pepper Basham – I love this author’s contemporary books which blend romance with humor and family. I read her debut novel years ago and have read many of her newer releases but somehow never got around to these two.
Rachel Hauck -There was a time when I read ever single one of Rachel’s books as soon as they released. But in the last couple of years, she just kind of fell off my radar. After reading and loving her most recent time-slip novel, I’ve decided to go back and catch up.
Who are some authors you love with books on your backlist?

I’ve also heard nothing but great things about the Doon books, so that’s one I’d like to check out soon as well. Susanna Kearsley is also a name that I’ve seen pop up a lot. I hope you get a chance to read these sometime soon. 🙂
I’m really behind in my reading of Jody Hedlund’s newer releases like her Orphan Train or her two recent YA releases. But oh, well! They’ll be there for “someday.” I liked the Doon series; they’re fun, easy reads. Also, I’ve heard amazing things about Susanna Kearsley’s books, but haven’t ever read one. Perhaps I should further investigate. 🙂
I’m behind on Jody’s Orphan Train and YA releases too, I just didn’t list them. The few books I’ve read by Kearsley have been time slip novels set in England with the historical timelines set during the Jacobean rebellion. I didn’t know that much about this rebellion until I read her books. Her book The Rose Garden was set in Cornwall and gave me all the Poldark “feels”.
