Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I've Only Read One Book From

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and it's a way to share what you're loving in list form. The topic changes every week, so there is always something new to discover!
This week's theme is:  Authors I've Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More.  It's been a while since I've done a Top Ten Tuesday, so I'm getting back in the swing of things.  Here's my list for this week!

Gillian Flynn
  • I've read Sharp Objects and really enjoyed it.  Gone Girl is on my TBR list for sure...I've heard fantastic things and, since the movie is coming out soon, I should probably get on that!
Margaret Atwood
  • While I wasn't super impressed with Cat's Eye, I've heard fantastic things about Atwood's other works.  Particularly The Handmaid's Tale.
John Boyne
  • I recently discovered the brilliance that is John Boyne when I read his latest work, The House of Special Purpose.  I now NEED to read EVERYTHING he's written.  So good!
Cornelia Funke
  • Having read Inkheart and purchased books two and three in the Inkworld series, this one is a must.  It's such a wonderful book!
Sara Ramsey
  • I downloaded a free copy of one of Ramsey's books, Scotsmen Prefer Blondes, and quickly discovered a great new romance writer.  It was the second book in the Maids of Mayfair series, so naturally I have to read the rest.
Elizabeth Kostova
  • The Historian is probably one of my favorite books and I have heard great things about Kostova's other publications.  I have The Swan Thieves, but have yet to crack the spine.  Soon...
Audrey Niffenegger
  • Anyone who writes about a time-traveling love story is alright in my book.  Can't wait to read Niffenegger's other books.  If they're anywhere near as good as The Time-Traveler's Wife, I'll be a happy camper :)
Ian Rankin
  • While I don't normally gravitate toward crime novels, Rankin holds a special place in my heart for his Detective Rebus character.  Having only read Fleshmarket Alley, I know that I need to explore more of his works.  Plus, it gives me wonderful glimpses of Edinburgh.
Leo Tolstoy
  • Anna Karenina is one of my all-time favorite books...ever...EVER!  I have to set aside the time necessary to delve more into Tolstoy and his awesomeness.
Jeanette Winterson
  • When I first read The Passion it was as an undergrad in college.  I should probably re-read it at some point, but I remember that I loved the writing style and the fantastical story of the mythical world of Venice.  Her other works have garnered much praise, so I keep meaning to check them out. 
Have you read any other works by these authors that you'd recommend?

Look for next week's post:  Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List

Happy reading!
