Authors I haven’t read yet, but really want to
Kelley Armstrong‘s Stitch in Time series was my sister’s Christmas gift to me this year. She knows my taste pretty well, so I’m looking forward to reading them.
Jane Austen. I am embarrassed to admit I haven’t read Austen yet, but she has been on my to-read list forever. (Don’t judge.)
Frances Brody writes historical mysteries set in post-WWI Britain, featuring a war widow whose husband is MIA and presumed dead. They sound very good.
T. Kingfisher (also known as Ursula Vernon) writes fantasy, and has been recommended by a number of authors and bloggers whose opinions I respect.
A.J. Lancaster‘s Stariel series has also been recommended by several of the same people.
Elizabeth Lim‘s YA fantasy novels look and sound amazing! I have Spin the Dawn and Unravel the Dusk on my shelf to read this year.
Susan McDuffie‘s Muirteach MacPhee mystery series, set in medieval Scotland, sounds right up my alley. My mom has met the author, and gave me the first four books a few years ago. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t read them yet, but hopefully I’ll start them this year.
Madeline Miller has been on my list since Song of Achilles came out… but what I really want to read is Circe.
Brandon Sanderson. Robin has been recommending the Mistborn trilogy for at least 5 years now, and so have a couple of other young family members.
V. E. Schwab is another of the authors my offspring, Robin, has been recommending for years—specifically, the Shades of Magic series. Robin also gave me The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue for my birthday, so that’s on my “read it this year” shelf. I plan to read it over the next four weeks, since a friend and I will be discussing it in mid-May.
Megan Whalen Turner‘s Thief series has been on my TBR list for ages.
