It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This weeks theme is Top 5 Authors I Discovered This Year. This year has been a great year for me when talking about new authors that I discovered and this happened mainly because of the blogging community. Because of that it was hard to choose only 5 of them. So let’s see some of the author I discovered this year.
5. Samantha Shannon
I read The Bone Season in the start of the year and I loved it. In the beginning the book is a little bit confusing because it’s a whole new world but you start getting into it and it’s just an amazing story. I haven’t read The Mime Order yet because I not good with waiting and I don’t want to wait for the 5 books that have yet to be published. However, The Bone Season is an amazing fantasy book and I just hope that the remaining books get to be has amazing as the first.
4. Kasie West
Until now I’ve read two Kasie West’s novels, The Distance Between Us and The Fill-In Boyfriend and I loved them. They are so fluffy, cute and easy to read. I actually started The Distance Between Us because I asked The team of Epic Read a book recommendation for when you’re in a reading slump and it actually worked 🙂 .In my opinion everyone that is a contemporary fan should try at least one of her books because they are beautiful.
3. Sarah J. Maas
This one should be a surprise for anyone. I started Throne of Glass this year and read A Court of Throns and Roses right after and they are both amazing. Once again I loved the world building and the characters that Sarah J. Maas created. The only reason I have only read the Throne of Glass series until Crown of Midnight is the waiting time. I told you before, I’m not good with waiting for books and I will not read the next two books until the beginning of next year.
2. Becky Albertalli
If you follow this blog and read my post you might know how much I love Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. It’s pretty normal that I had to include Becky Albertalli in this list. I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait to read more books written by her. If they’re half as good as Simon I’m pretty sure that I’ll love them. All the characters that she created were so amazing. For me this is another must-read for any contemporary lover.
1. Jasmine Warga
My number one pick is another one that shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone that follows this blog. My Heart and Other Black Holes is one of my favorite books that I’ve read this year and I think that it was an amazing debut novel from Jasmine Warga. This is just an heart-breaking novel that deals with mental illness and it’s just beautiful. This is another author that I want to follow and I can’t wait to read her next works.
These are some of my favorite authors that I’ve discovered this year. Believe me that if I could I would include a few more authors 😀 . What about you? What are some of the authors that you discovered this year and love?
