5 AUTHORS I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO READ FROM THIS YEAR!

Hey guys, you seem to enjoy when I talk about authors and lists are some of my favourite posts to write so today I thought I would talk about my top 5 to read authors. These are all new-to-me authors or authors I am willing to give another chance!

I’m pretty excited for all of these authors and I hope you guys are too, they’re all pretty popular!

Remember, if it’s in red it’s a link!

THE BIG KAHUNA: Stephen King

Misery  Rose Madder  Gerald's Game

MISERY / ROSE MADDER / GERALD’S GAME

A while back I posted a question with a poll asking people for advice on how to read King. A majority of people said I should reading King and I will definitely do that at some point, though I really want to work up to it and not scare the shit out of myself straight away.

About a week ago I was window shopping and then I saw a 2 for $20 sale at QBD and one thing lead to another and I was walking out with 3 more books than I should have come out with (pictured above). When I asked on Goodreads where I should start a lot of people recommended that I start with Misery and at the moment it is the one I am most intrigued by, so I think I will start there.

Gosh, this guy is so intimidating!

WHY HAVEN’T I READ HER BOOKS YET: V. E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)  Vicious (Villains, #1)  This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)

A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC / VICIOUS / THIS SAVAGE SONG

A year or two ago I borrowed  Darker Shade from the library and only got about 100 pages through it before it was due back again. Last year I did buy the first two books in the trilogy though so I am really hoping to at least read book 1 this year.

I’ve heard that her books can be pretty dark also, which is why I’m excited to hopefully get to Vicious and This Savage Song. Though I don’t know which to get to first, they both sound so good in their own rights.

HOW HAVE I NOT READ THIS: Ngozi Ukazu

Check, Please!: # Hockey

CHECK, PLEASE! #HOCKEY

So, Cece over at ProblemsofaBookNerd has been talking about this non-stop and really hyping it up so I am really excited to get into this one. I haven’t read anything purely mushy and cute for so long that I really think I’m going to love this when it comes out in print later in the year.

THE MOVIE WAS PRETTY GOOD: Cornelia Funke

Inkheart (Inkworld, #1)

INKHEART

I have owned this book for a ridiculous amount of years, ever since the film came out. So turns out the film came out around 2008/ 2009 so I’ve owned this book for possibly 10 years and never read, which to me is absolutely appauling. I will honestly be so disappointed in myself if the number reaches 11.

I KNOW, I KNOW: Amanda Foody

Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game #1)

ACE OF SHADES

A few weeks ago I actually got accepted for an e-arc of Ace of Shades so I am pretty hyped to get into Amanda Foody’s books because I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this book from all the people with early copies. That being said, I tried to read her debut novel, Daughter of the Burning City last month and actually, DNF’d it, but I did think it was a cool concept so I am hopeful for her second book.

    1. Oh no, I’m so sorry you didn’t enjoy it! I’m only a couple of pages in but so far I am enjoying it though, it is strange! I hope I do enjoy it purely because I really want to get into King’s writing this year. Without spoilers because duh, what didn’t you enjoy about Misery?

      1. i thought it was more…gross than scary if that makes sense? and there were a couple social-issue sorta things. but i hope you like it more than i did, i’m super picky!!!

  1. I’ve heard Cece go on and on about Check Please so I really want to pick it up, too. I’m sort of meh about hockey, but I do love stories set in college and this one seems like a perfect fit. 🙂

    1. Yes exactly, I barely knew about Check Please until Cece started talking about it. I know nothing about Hockey (though, I enjoy watching it) and I rarely/ basically never read college stories so I’m really excited to get started with the series in September!

    1. Yeah, I think the concept is what’s really grasped me for all the years. I really enjoy the film and I’ve heard such great reviews for the trilogy so I’m excited to read it this year!

  2. Oh I have so many authors that I need to get to this year 😅 I’m with you on Schwab, because I haven’t read any book by her, which NEEDS to change 😀 I’m actually planing to read A Darker Shade of Magic soon and hopefully I’ll like it 🙂 I also want to get my hands on Ace of Shades because I’ve been getting so hyped up about this book 😍

    1. I know how you feel, there are so many authors I didn’t get around to last year! I feel like I really should’ve read some of Schwab’s works by now, but for some reason, I haven’t yet???
      I honestly have no idea what Ace of Shades is about other than Gangsters and a Six of Crows vibe?? I went into the author’s debut novel with high expectations so I’m trying to go into this one with a more chilled out vibe. Hopefully, it’s good!
