This week’s Top 5 is all about authors I want to read more from. Now of course this is actually a really long list but I’m narrowing it down to new to me authors I’ve read in the past six months. Let’s start with Becky Albertalli. I read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda at the end of December and really like it. The Upside of Unrequited blew me away though. I just read Noteworthy by Riley Redgate and it was such a nuanced contemporary that I need to pick up more of her work. History is All You Left Me was my first Adam Silvera and now I need to get to his first book as well as his upcoming release. Daniel Jose Older surprised me with Shadowshaper so now his backlist is definitely a must read for me. And Mackenzi Lee’s Gentleman’s Guide was brilliant and I loved all the historical details. Must read all the books by these authors!!!
So what authors do you want to read more of? Are any of mine on your list? Let me know in the comments below!
