If you’re reading this post then I’m sure you also have a TBR (to be read) pile that is so large it threatens to crush or suffocate you. My pile has been holding strong at over 100 for quite a few years now. And amongst that list are quite a few new authors that i’ve yet to experience. Why haven’t I read them yet? I always get side tracked by authors that I know I love! Honestly though – I’m afraid of finding more amazing authors and then my TBR pile becomes so large that it grows legs and horns and tries to kill me in my sleep. Here are 5 authors that you all rave about and I hope to get to them soon:
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming topics in November – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!
I’m a huge fan of hard hitting historical fiction. I’ve been told that Kristin Hannah is one of the best. Her most recent novel The Nightingale has been getting a ton of buzz since its release. A few of her other books such as Firefly lane, Fly Away, Winter Garden, and Night Road also sound absolutely amazing! I have all of those sitting on my shelf (yes, I own 5 of her books and haven’t read a single one…… don’t judge me) and I hope yo get to them soon!
Being that I’m a huge fan of fantasy I’m a bit embarrassed to say that I haven’t read Brent Weeks yet! I love unique and complicated magic systems along with epic world building….. and I guess he does this in spades! The Lightbringer series and the Night Angel series are two very popular series in the fantasy world. I only own 7 of his books…….. son of a hell, I am a disgrace! I hope that after I read one of his books I can marathon them all!
Right around the time I started seriously reading again, the Goldfinch was released. I remember walking around the book store trying to figure out what to read and this book was always staring at me in the face. Years later, when I became an active member in the book community, this book was STILL being talked about! Quite a few people I know say that she’s the most amazing writer. I hope to find out for myself sooner than later.
Yet another author that I’ve heard amazing things about but I still haven’t read! I’ve heard that her novels have a way of sucking you into the world and not wanting to let go. I was so excited about this book so, the week it was published, I bought it……. but I still haven’t touched it 😦
ROBERT JACKSON BENNETT
Another fantasy and another author i’ve yet to pick up. Robert Jackson Bennett is another household name within the fantasy genre and there are a lot of books to choose from! There’s the newest, Foundryside, which everyone seems to love. There’s also The divine cities, and quite a few more. Some day…… soon
