It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Today, we’ll get into some authors I want to try. There are many writers that I encountered while reading other people’s T5T posts. So, this will probably be a list of books and authors, everybody except for me has already read. 😅
#1 Stephanie Garber
I’ve heard so many intriguing things about the Caraval series and it’s been on my tbr-pile for a while. Although I read something slightly similar by a different author (and ended up rather disappointed), I’m still curious and want to give her a shot!
#2 Tamsyn Muir
Although I’ve seen Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir pop up again and again, I hadn’t been aware that it’s part of a series. Her work seems fascinating to me, so I hope I’ll have the time to pick up one of her books soon!
#3 Jay Kristoff
I guess, I am the last person who hasn’t read anything by Kristoff. Aurora Rising, Nevernight and even Lifelike have crossed my parth several times now. But there are only so many hours in a day, so I haven’t had time to pick up any of those yet. All of them sound amazing, so I wouldn’t even know where to start! 🙈
#4 V. E. Schwab
I’m pretty certain V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic would be right down my alley but again, my tbr pile is so huge, it must have gotten lost somewhere in there. However, I do have a copy of her recent novel The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, so chances are, Schwab will be the first author on this list I’ll actually tackle!
#5 Samantha Shannon
Finally, we have Samantha Shannon. I’ve seen the cover for The Priory of the Orange Tree pop up here and there. Even though I still don’t know what it’s about, I know I’ll just have to read it! The only thing that’s stopped me so far is that it’s a rather long book. Hopefully, I have time to pick it up soon and if I ended up enjoying it as much as I expect, I’ll definitely give Shannon’s other novels a shot as well.
Tell me about some authors you want to check out! Let me know in the comments!
