MY FAVOURITE FEMALE AUTHORS

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a short but sweet post inspired by International Womens day a few weeks ago! Today, I won’t be talking to you guys so much, but I will be showcasing some of my favourite covers of books written by women – I’ve tried to keep them pretty recent, but some are backlist books!

Remember, either the book covers or the words in red will take you to the GoodReads pages!

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.

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. 

Adam Silvera

More Happy Than Not  History Is All You Left Me  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 Dessen 

Saint Anything  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 Brawley  We Are the Ants  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)  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.
