It’s Wednesday! This means it’s time for Top 5 Wednesday, a weekly meme created by Lainey @ Ginger Reads Lainey and now hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes. You can check out and join the Goodreads group here.This topic is such an amazing topic! I swear, these last few topics have just been spectacular picks! There are so many authors out there that I’ve only read about 1-2 books from them and consider them my ‘favorite’ authors, yet I have barely even read any of their work! Here is a list of some of those authors!
5. Maggie Stiefvater
I love Maggie Stiefvater as both a person and a writer. Her writing style is just so unique and beautiful. I’ve only read the first three books in The Raven Cycle, though! I do own her standalone book The Scorpio Races (my sister read it and loved it) and I got it signed by her when I met her about a month ago. I really want to read her lesser-known series The Wolves of Mercy Falls because it sounds really cool (and, again, beautiful covers!)
4. Benjamin Alire Saenz
I also met Benjamin Alire Saenz about a month ago when I met Maggie Stiefvater and he was so nice! I’ve only read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – which is arguably his most popular book – but I really want to read his other books! He’s a poet so he has some poetry books out there and from what I’ve read from Ari and Dante, his other books should be just as beautifully written.
3. Marie Lu
Marie Lu is another author I met but I have only read one of her books! I can’t believe it either, and she’s such a big author! I love her world-building and how she writes her characters, though, from reading The Young Elites. I own the first book in her Legend trilogy but I haven’t read it yet.
2. E. Lockhart
Although I did enjoy We Were Liars, I’m not 100% dying to read her other books. They honestly don’t sound all that interesting if I’m being honest, but she does have this type of writing style that pulls me in and holds me captive until I finish the book. Her upcoming book – pictured above – (which doesn’t come out until September…) does sound promising.
1. Susan Dennard
If you have been following my blog you should know that when I read Truthwitch earlier this year, I absolutely fell in love with that book (and fantasy) all over again. She has another series called the Something Strange and Deadly trilogy and it actually sounds really interesting. The covers are a bit cliche to say the least, and it doesn’t exactly have the most stellar of reviews, but I’m intrigued nonetheless.
Who are some authors of yours that you’d like to read more books from? Have you read any books by the authors I mentioned? Did you end up enjoying them? Let me know in the comments!
