Hi friends! I’m so excited to begin the November Top 5 Tuesday topics, hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads! And I’m especially excited to talk about some of the wonderful authors I’ve discovered this year!
After reading both of her released books in the Gilded Wolves trilogy, Roshani Chokshi quickly became one of my favorite authors. Both books have a rich, diverse cast of characters, lush writing, and a complex plot. I can’t wait to go back and read all of her backlist!
After reading both of Jennifer Donnelly’s fairy-tale retellings, I can safely say she is one of my new favorite authors! Both Stepsister and Poisoned are so, so creative. I think it’s truly difficult to find a Cinderella or Snow White retelling that can retell the original story with so many incredible twists, with such relative ease.
It’s so rare to find a reliable mystery/thriller author in the YA community, but I genuinely think that Holly Jackson has what it takes to become one of the best if not the best. Her debut novel was well-plotted, with countless twists and turns, as well as touching on topics such as racism and prejudice. I can’t wait to read the sequel!
After reading Silence of Bones, June Hur became an instant stand-out author in my mind. Her debut novel was so incredibly well-researched, with fantastic characters and an excellent twisty plot. I’m so excited for her upcoming sophomore novel!
Erin A. Craig
While I wasn’t head-over-heels in love with House of Salt and Sorrows, the atmosphere was everything. Like, Shea Ernshaw mixed with Adrienne Young. I adored the retelling aspects too, and the creepy vibes of it all. So I’m really excited for Craig’s next book!
That’s it! What’s one of your new favorite authors???
