April 26th: Authors You Want to Read More From
–Talk about some authors that you’ve only read one or a few books from, and you NEED to read more!
I love this topic, I’m always finding new authors to love, and catching up on their backlist can be a nightmare, between new releases and an already mountainous TBR pile.
1 – Brandon Sanderson
While I have read most of the books in the Mistborn series, as well as Steelheart, but Brandon Sanderson has written so many books that I want to read. I actually own a good few of them already, but those books are so big and intimidating. Even though I know that most likely I will really enjoy them.
2 – Rick Riordan
I’ve only read the first couple of books in the Percy Jackson series, and that was years ago. But recently I reread The Lightning Thief and really enjoyed it. Now I want to read all of the books set in the Percy Jackson, eventually. There are a lot of books out already, it’s kind of intimidating knowing how many books I need to catch up on.
3 – Derek Landy
The Skulduggery Pleasant series is one I lost track of over the years, recently I picked up the first book on my kindle app, and I thing I enjoyed it even more the second time around. I’ve already got the second book on standby, ready for when I have time. This is another big series, so I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. On top of that, there is the newer Demon Road series, which I also want to read eventually.
4 – Maria V Snyder
I inhaled poison study last year, really enjoyed it, could not put it down. It’s one of the rare occasions of me reading a book in one day. Since then I have acquired a number of Maria V Snyder’s other titles, but still haven’t actually gotten around to reading them. It needs to happen, and I’m determined it will, eventually.
5 – Melissa Landers
I loved Starflight when I read it last year, it was a lot of fun, I loved the characters and it gave me warm firefly nostalgia vibes. I haven’t read the sequel yet, but I am definitely planning on, I’m just trying extra hard to not buy books at the moment because I’m trying to save. I’m also intrigued by Melissa Landers’ alienated series, I hope to read it someday.
So as you might gather, I have a lot of catching up to do. To be honest I try not to think about all the books I want to get to eventually, because between them, new releases and all the books I want to reread, I feel like I could quite easily be buried.
