This week’s topic is top 5 authors I discovered this year.
- V.E. Schwab
I honestly hadn’t heard of Victoria before this year but boy am I a fan now! I finished Vicious and am working on The Archived and her writing is absolutely wonderful. Also, she’s such a sweetheart on Twitter.
- Rick Yancey
I read two books by Rick Yancey this year – The 5th Wave and The Infinite Sea. They were both exciting reads! I also picked up the first two books in the Monstrumologist series and will be getting to those soon.
- Ernest Cline
3 words: Ready Player One! Ready Player One is such a popular book and rightfully so. It is nostalgic and fast-paced and addicting. It will be made into a movie soon, so I recommend checking it out if you haven’t already! I haven’t read Ernest Cline’s 2nd novel, Armada, but I plan on picking it up in 2016.
- Andy Weir
The Martian is one of my favorites of 2015 (if not THE favorite) and that is because Andy Weir is an amazing writer. The well-researched technical aspects mixed with smart-assery were so enjoyable to read. I will pick up anything Andy Weir writes in a heartbeat.
- Brandon Sanderson
I haven’t read a lot of Brandon Sanderson yet – just the first 2 books in the Reckoners series. That being said, I really enjoyed them and am excited to dig into some of his other stories. The Mistborn series is on my TBR for whenever I get over how intimidating the page counts are.
