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!

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. 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.
So, here’s the deal. For this week’s topic, I’ll be doing a little theme within the theme. For books I haven’t read yet, I’ll be sharing some of the subscription box novels on my shelf that I just haven’t got to yet! I’ll leave you with the plot info from Goodreads. 😉

#1 Fable by Adrienne Young

Welcome to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men.

As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home seventeen-year-old Fable has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.

But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him and Fable soon finds that West isn’t who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they’re going to stay alive.

#2 The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.

Today’s post is all about new authors. As I currently have a subscription for two book boxes, I basically discover somebody new every time I pull out the book I get there. So, I’ll share some of my favorite authors I fell in love with recently after getting their novel!

#1 Shelby Mahurin

I know everybody and their grandma had been going on about how amazing Serpent & Dove is. I got the book a while ago, but never really had time to pick it up. Well, until a few weeks ago. Despite some issues I have with it, I love Mahurin’s writing style and can’t wait to read the next part.

#2 Tricia Levenseller

From the cover art alone I was already in love with The Shadows Between Us. Levenseller deliver the delightfully wicked Slytherin romance I didn’t know I need in my life and now I need more. I’m absolutely delighted to pick up more of her novels.
