Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.
This week’s topic is Top 5 Authors I’ve Discovered This Year.
I have read a lot of books this year. Some were from authors that I adore and love, while others were from brand new authors to me. Among them, some are debut authors and others are seasoned authors. So without further a do let’s find out who is on my list!
5. Leigh Bardugo
Leigh Bardugo is the author of the Grisha Trilogy: Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, Ruin and Rising, and now Six of Crows. I love the worlds she creates and the way she tells her stories. Through a ton of recommendations I finally was able to read her books and I can’t believe I waited so long!
4. Fleur Camacho
Fleur Camacho is the author of The Tristen Series: The Last Seeker, and The Secret Heeder. A time traveling fantasy series with rich history and amazing characters. I am sitting here patiently waiting for the next book. In the mean time, go check out the first two!
3. Pierce Brown
Pierce Brown is the author of the Red Rising Trilogy: Red Rising, Golden Son, and the soon to be released conclusion, Morning Star. His sci-fi world is filled with amazing storytelling, vivid descriptions and tortured characters. One of my favorite books I have read this year!
2. Becky Albertalli
Becky Albertalli is the debut novelist of Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. I fell head over heels with this book after reading it. I connected so with Simon more than any other character. I loved reading how he navigated his online relationship with Blue and his offline relationship with his friends and family. I can’t wait to see what Becky can dish out next!
1. Shaun David Hutchinson
Shaun David Hutchinson is the author of books such as: The Deathday Letter, FML, and my one of my favorite books The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley. I got the opportunity to read the latter this year and I loved it. I connected with the tortured characters so much so that this book had me in tears more than once throughout reading. It ended so beautifully and the comic book illustrations after every chapter were a cool addition to the overall story. His next book We Are the Ants is on my most anticipated releases for 2016!
I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. I love reading books from new or new to me authors and finding new favorites along the way. I plan on doing so next year and hopefully I can have a bigger list next year!
Until next time,
