TAYLOR JENKINS REID

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo  One True Loves  Evidence of the Affair  Maybe in Another Life  Forever, Interrupted  After I Do

2018 is the year of Taylor Jenkins Reid and I am so happy about that. I read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo wayy back in March this year and pretty much went nuts and then read all of her other books throughout the rest of the year. I love her writing and I love how she writes her characters – her books are also a pretty good size so I definitely recommend her books if you need a book to take with you on the bus to work or school!

MARIE LU

Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons, #2)    Warcross (Warcross, #1)    Wildcard (Warcross, #2)

Marie Lu is such a popular YA author and I had never read any of her books before??? But I’m on the Marie Lu train now and I love it! She is such a good writer and I’m so excited to read more of her books in the future!

ANNA-MARIE MCLEMORE

Wild Beauty

Anna-Marie McLemore is the queen of magical realism and I am such a fan. I have never been big on magical realism but I guess that’s changed because I love these books now. To be fair, the only magical realism I’ve read lately is from Anna-Marie Mclemore so maybe I just love her books the most?? Her writing is fabulous, her characters are fantastic and her covers are beau-ti-ful!

MAUREEN JOHNSON

The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)   Truly Devious (Truly Devious, #1)

Okay, so Maureen Johnson is also so so popular in the ya community and until now I don’t think I had ever read any of her books?? But, now I’ve read two of them both from different series so I guess I’m a pro?? #mysteriesftw

ALICE HOFFMAN

Faithful

Alice Hoffman is a beautiful writer – she has wonderful writing and brilliant characters. I have somehow only read one of her books but honestly, it was such a phenomenal and hard read I think it’s going to take me a while to feel like I can pick up a second even though I see her books at the library all the time.

    1. I recommend Wild Beauty for Anna-Marie Mclemore, it was one of my favourite reads this year! Evelyn Hugo was my first TJR book and also my favourite, I actually didn’t like many of her others unfortunately so I’m hoping I like her 2019 new release! I hope my reviews help you out, I wrote some quick thoughts on Goodreads1

  2. I discovered some super great authors this year and started to explore new books more than I’ve done so in the past. I’m going to do a post about it at some point but off the top of my head some of my faves from this year include Pierce Brown, Adam Silvera, Kaia Sonderby, Akemi Dawn Bowman, and Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff!

    1. I love the feeling of finding a new author! They all sound great, what did you read by Adam Silvera? I’ve only read a few of his books & I’m not sure if I’ll continue because I always have mixed feelings!

        1. I actually really enjoyed More Happy Than Not, it’s definitely my favourite of his books.
          My mixed feelings are that I think his books have really great ideas behind them but don’t pay off in the story for me. That being said, so many people love his books and I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority. with thinking his books are meh

    1. I have only read Warcross and Batman and I enjoyed them both but, I definitely enjoyed Warcross less on my re-read!
      Evelyn Hugo was amazing but I actually wasn’t a big fan of all her other books!
