Today’s Topic is: Top Authors I Discovered This Year
I love discovering new or new-to-me authors. it’s the best part of being a reader most of the time. I have discovered a few authors this year that I know are going to be firm favourites.
1. Sarah J. Maas
I know, I know, I am way late to the party! I still haven’t read the Throne of Glass series yet but I read and adored A Court of Thornes and Roses earlier this year. I am definitely a fan.
2. Renee Ahdieh
The Wrath and the Dawn was one of my favourite reads this year and I am way excited for the next book in the series.
3. Naomi Novik
Uprooted was phenomenal. I haven’t been reading much traditional fantasy but this book got me really excited for the genre again. It was just so awesome. I definitely want to check out her Temeraire series soon.
4. Heather Demetrios
I’ll Meet You There was such a powerful read. I am keen to check out the rest of this author’s books. Something Real has been on my radar for a while and I am looking forward to getting to it soon.
5. Marie Rutkoski
The Winner’s Curse was awesome so I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series and this author’s back catalogue too (The Shadow Society has been gathering dust on my bookshelf for too long).
