This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here.I love this topic! Generally, I like any topic that will prioritize my TBR list though. Anyway, I put one limitation on myself: I didn’t choose any authors who only have one book out so far. So all of these have at least 2 books that have been released.
1. Laini Taylor, author of Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Laini Taylor is my constant shame when it comes to Top Ten Tuesday lists. One of these days I’ll actually make time for her chunky but beautiful books. Seriously, her writing style is like word porn.
2. Libba Bray, author of The Diviners
Another author who just writes SO BEAUTIFULLY. The Diviners was stunning. I really want to read more of her, but I’m not sure where to start. Suggestions?
3. Victoria Schwab, author of The Archived
Schwab amazed me in The Archived with the creativity of her world building and how engaging the plot was. AND THAT SHIP. So I’m definitely hoping to read The Unbound and Vicious soon.
4. Leila Sales, author of This Song Will Save Your Life
TSWSYL basically perfectly described me in high school and made me feel SO MANY THINGS. I really want to read more from Sales after that, and Kara got me Past Perfect for my birthday, so hopefully I’ll squeeze that in soon!
5. Katherine Longshore, author of Gilt
I’m loving historical fiction, and Longshore’s refreshing YA take on the Tudor era was really impressive. Gilt brought the feels. Seriously. I already have Tarnish on my shelf, so I’m hoping to read it soon.
6. Marie Rutkoski, author of The Winner’s Curse
Pretty sure most people agree that The Winner’s Curse was really awesome. Rutkoski is a master storyteller – so I’m looking forward to reading The Shadow Society, which is already on my shelf, and I might look into her middle grade books as well. They sound super fun.
7. Paula Stokes, author of The Art of Lainey
LAINEY LAINEY LAINEY. Obviously, I freaking love that book. So yeah. Paula’s coming out with more books under her own name next year, but in the meantime, I’m hoping to check out the Secrets of the Eternal Rose series, under her pseudonym Fiona Paul. I’m expecting feels.
8. Lauren Miller, author of Parallel
Wow, I keep mentioning Parallel lately. *cough* Anyway, I love Miller’s “sci-chique” ideas, so I really want to read Free to Fall soon. Apps determining your optimal life? Hell yes, awesome concept.
9. Rachel Harris, author of The Fine Art of Pretending
I loved The Fine Art of Pretending, which is coming out later this month. Harris has a great light, fluffy, romantic tone – and her My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series involves time travel! I really want to read them. It’s a shame the covers are so dreadful.
10. R.J. Anderson, author of Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet was so creative and surprising! I can’t believe I still haven’t read the sequel or the other books by Anderson. I need to get a move on.
