Friday Favourites: Potential Favourite Authors

Welcome back to another Friday Favourites, dear friends! Last year this weekly meme was hosted by the wonderful Kibby @ Something of the Book! However, this year Kibby has passed the torch on to Lorraine @ Geeky Galaxy. This week’s topic is: favourite authors.

Well, this list could go on forever, couldn’t it? Did I mention that I’m quite terrible at picking favourites? I’ve actually done a few posts mentioning some of my favourite authors (like this one and this one) so I thought I’d take a bit of a different spin for this week’s author topic by focusing on authors that have a potential to be favourites. I say potential because I’ve only read one book by these authors but they absolutely wowed me and I could see them becoming a favourite if I end up enjoying their other books just as much. I hope that explanation made sense! πŸ˜‚ Here we go…

Ugh, just look at this gorgeous cover! I mean, isn’t that reason enough to love this?! Kidding… Sort of. The content was just as enjoyable as the cover and I sped through this heart-wrenching story. The characters were so real and relatable and I loved these two cinnamon rolls so much πŸ’ž I just wanted to hug them forever. I’m so excited to read Choi’s second book released last year!

I love historical fiction and am partial to reading books set during the Holocaust or WWII. I’d never read YA historical fiction before but I was really taken with Sepetys‘ evocative writing. I learned a lot about the atrocities that occurred in other nations during this period and it was eye-opening. I have a good feeling I’ll really enjoy her other books too!

Yes, this book is making another appearance on my lists this week because I absolutely loved it and like I said in my review, I highly recommend it! Sorry not sorry πŸ˜‰ I adored this book and I’m looking forward to trying Clayborn’s other books because of how she managed to so captivate me and my feels!

I don’t know what I expected when I went into this but it wasn’t what I got–and I mean that in the best way too! This was such a great sci-fi thriller that really kept me on the edge of my seat and on my toes the whole time. James managed to reel me in with how she set the atmosphere and always had me second guessing myself while reading! Definitely keen to try her other work.

This book quickly captivated me with the magic, world building and books, but the characters had me speeding through the pages to find out what happens next. I adored this book so much and I’m really looking forward to trying Rogerson’s other work. I hope I love it just as much as I did this 😍

Who are authors you want to read more of and who have the potential to become a new favourite? Would any of these authors make your list?

  1. I’m so excited to read Sorcery of Thorns, and I’m sure Rogerson will end up being a potential favorite as well. If you say that Lauren James is also that good, I’ll be sure to check The Loneliest Girl in the Universe! An author I’ve really, really liked recently is Genevieve Valentine.

    1. SoT was SO good! Definitely curious to read more of her. Same with Lauren James because that book was so not what I was expecting but it blew me away with how much I enjoyed it! I haven’t heard of the author you mentioned. What do they write?

      1. Valentine wrote a Twelve Dancing Princesses retelling set in the 1920s that I’ve really enjoyed at the beginning of the year. It’s called The Girls at the Kingfisher Club.

        I want to read another book of hers before deciding whether I really like her writing (it’s kind of a special style) or if I was just really caught by the story and setting. I’ll possibly pick up Mechanique: A Tale of the Circus Tresaulti

        1. Both these titles sound great! I had never heard of the Twelve Dancing Princesses until I read House of Salt and Sorrow last year and it was amazing! Curious to see what another retelling of the story would be like. Will definitely check it out πŸ˜€

          1. Yes it is horror and as someone who is a total chicken, I will admit that some parts were… insanely creepy and had my toes tingling in fear but it’s definitely worth the read! It’s wonderfully written and atmospheric and I’d recommend it! πŸ™‚
