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 favouriteย 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

Miseryย ย Rose Madderย ย 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)ย ย Vicious (Villains, #1)ย ย This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)

A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC / VICIOUS / THIS SAVAGE SONG

A year or two ago I borrowedย  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.

5 Authors I need To Read

I’m currently procarastinating writing my shakespeare essay and I thought what better way to do that then to start a new feature on my blog. This one is pretty similar to T5W except I’ll be talking about whatever I like (don’t worry I’ll still continue with T5W). I think I really prefer this feature to longer posts because it gives me a limit to the amount of books I talk about but it doesn’t restrict what I talk about.


We all have authors we’ve heard great things about but just haven’t got to yet, well so do I. I was going through my Goodreads TBR and I found there were soo many new-to-me authors, well these are probably the top 5 that I would really like to get to some time soon.ย 

Adam Silvera

More Happy Than Notย ย History Is All You Left Meย ย They Both Die at the End

I have not read any of this man’s novels and it is my greatest book shame. His books sound amazing and I really haven’t read enough LGBT fiction.

I mean, honestly, I really don’t know why I haven’t read these books yet. I’ve recommended his works to my friends and I’ve had More Happy Than Not on my TBR since it came out and yet I still haven’t gotten to it yet.

Sarah Dessenย 

Saint Anythingย ย Lock and Key

Sarah Dessen sort of blew up a few years ago (2015?), or at least to me she did. I’d never heard of her or her books before until the release of Saint Anything. So naturally, I checked the book out and it sounds awesome. I would really love to read it and some of her other books but unfortunately due to lack of time or my mood I just haven’t picked up any of her books yet.

Jesse Eisenberg

Bream Gives Me Hiccups

This guy. He is one of my favourite actors and he seems like a really cool and intelligent guy. So of course when I found out he was a writer I went straight to the internet. I saw an interview with him talking about his book with Jimmy Fallon (I think) and sounded really cool so of course I want to check out what his book is like. He also writes plays so I feel like if I like this book, I’ll probably check them out to!

Shaun David Hutchinson

The Five Stages of Andrew Brawleyย ย We Are the Antsย ย At the Edge of the Universe

What’s that? I’m talking about Shaun David Hutchinson again? That’s right, because for some reason I still have yet to read a single book by him. I don’t know if it’s simply because I’ve been too busy lately or if I’m afraid it won’t be as good as I’ve heard. Either way, I really want to have read a book by SDH by the end of the year.

Rob Thomas

The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Veronica Mars, #1)ย ย Mr. Kiss and Tell (Veronica Mars, #2)

I am in a serious Veronica Mars mood right now so naturally when I heard there was a set of books set after the movie written by the Director they went straight to the top of my TBR.
