Today we’re keeping thinks much more positive! 😅 Here are some authors I really want to try!
There are so many authors I’ve been sleeping on! Since joining the book community, my reading taste has changed a lot. So there are tons of popular authors I haven’t read from or didn’t know about. Heads up – the majority of these are romance authors since that’s the main genre I read.
Here are some I’m the most excited to pick up!
1. Kennedy Ryan
I’ve heard such amazing things about Kennedy Ryan but for some reason I’ve just been sleeping on her books. There are so many books I want to read by her so this is changing asap!
2. Jennifer L. Armentrout
I feel like JLA is quintessential romance that I’ve been missing out on. She’s known for her paranormal romances – which I’ve been all about lately – so it’s the perfect time to pick up her stuff.
3. Kerrigan Byrne
This author is always being raved about in the romance community and now that I’ve gotten into historical romances, I’m desperate to give her a try!
4. Cat Sebastian
Cat Sebastian is a historical romance author I only recently discovered but her books have amazing ratings and I’ve already put both of these on hold through Libby.
5. Grace Draven
I discovered Grace Draven while browsing for fantasy romances on Goodreads. Their books have absolutely amazing reviews so I’m really excited about both of these series! I just bought a physical copy of Phoenix Unbound so hopefully soon!
6. John Marrs
I actually didn’t have much of an interest in this author until Booktube went totally crazy over his books. Now I’m super intrigued and even have an arc copy of What Lies Between Us.
7. Samantha Downing
My Lovely Wife made a big splash in the book world in 2018. I’m way behind and still haven’t read it but I’m also really excited about He Started It which I’ve heard great early reviews for!
8. Mariana Zapata
I kinda feel like a romance phony for not having read any Mariana Zapata books 😅 But in my defense they’re ridiculously long! I definitely have to make it happen soon though because I’ve heard such amazing things about her slow burn romances.
9. T.J. Klune
TJ Klune has been on approximately a dozen TBRs this year and somehow I still haven’t read anything by them 😅 This is the month though!
10. J.R. Ward
I own these first 3 books in the Blackdagger Brotherhood series – an iconic paranormal romance series. And I 100% plan to read them this year! If I can get over my fear of another enormous series 😅
What new-to-you authors do you really want to give a try??
