I believe it is safe to say that every bookworm has his/her own tendency to hoard books. Not just new releases, but old ones too. I, for one, tend to look for old books from authors who are releasing new books since it takes time for newly released book to reach my country. Which in turn makes me read just 1-2 books per author. So this week’s TTT topic made me look back and realize which authors I need to get back to and read more from. Some of these authors, I have read a whole series or some books in a series but never really tried looking at their other books.
1. PENNY REID
If you’ve read my review of her book, Neanderthal Seeks Human, you’ll know how much I loved her book. Damn. This book literally made it hard for me to review because there isn’t enough words to describe how good Reid’s writing was. It was very funny, relatable, and she knows very well how to make hearts flutter. I was, literally, rolling on my bed while I was reading NSH. It was THAT good.
2. GILLIAN FLYNN
Honestly, the only reason I decided to give Gone Girl a try was because its movie adaptation was coming out. Looking at the blurb, it was not really my type of genre. But after finishing it, all I can say was “Why didn’t I read this sooner?!” Her book made me consider reading another book under that genre, and of course why not from the same author. Right?
3. GAYLE FORMAN
Mia and Adam’s story blew me away. Yes, John Green’s TFIOS made me cried buckets, but Forman’s If I Stay series was a bomb that made me burst into a lot of feels. I have to thank my friend Dre of Sporadic Reads for strongly recommending Gayle Forman’s books to me. (And it gave me a terrible book hangover. My bestfriend had to shut me up one time because I was talking about Adam too much.)
4. MORGAN MATSON
Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, although simply written, touch my heart in a way I never expected. It made her other two books, Second Chance Summer and Since You’ve Been Gone, land on my TBR bookshelf.
5. J.A. REDMERSKI
One of the many perks co-blogging has is having the chance to read a book your co-blogger recommends, and Killing Sarai was one. Her book may have been a “heavy” read but it sure was a thrilling book. It was hot and sexy without it being racy. She didn’t write a fairytale, she wrote an honest story of a dangerous hero. (Did I make sense? Haha)
6. CASSANDRA CLARE
I have only read City of Bones and I have to be honest I wasn’t impressed. But because I see a lot of fandoms and people liking the series, I think why not give the whole series a chance?
7. COLLEEN HOOVER
Since Slammed was a series, although it has three books, I am going to count it as one. Colleen Hoover didn’t just made me fall in love with the story, she also made me fall in love with the characters, even the supporting ones, the events, the conflict, everything. It wasn’t just about the sex, it was all about being mature and developing a relationship into something that could last til the end of time. With the way Hoover delivered Slammed’s story, I am definitely giving her other books a try.
8. JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT
Yes, you’re reading it right. Although she’s one of the very first NA authors I came across to, I’ve only come to read one of her books this year and that is Obsidian. If you ask me one good reason why you should give her Lux series a try, here it is. DAEMON BLACK. Who knows? Maybe another Daemon Black might appear in her other books.
