My Favorite Authors

favauthors-10

Today will be a simple post about the authors that have changed the experience of reading for me. They haven’t simply written good books, they have written tales that have completely engulfed me. Their world building, character description & development, writing style, romance, diversity, and just everything is what has made me love them. These four authors aren’t on here for simply writing ONE good book but many. So, without further ado let’s get into these lovely authors.


Victoria/V.E. Schwab

victoria

The author of THE MONSTERS OF VERITY SERIES, THE SHADES OF MAGIC SERIES, THE VILLAINS SERIES, THE ARCHIVED SERIES, THE EVERYDAY ANGEL SERIES, and THE NEAR WITCH. 

She has many more books coming out but, these are all the ones so far. V.E. Schwab is without a doubt, my favorite author. Every book by her is a 5 star. She creates memorable characters with such unique & amazing personalities. Her stories are always something unique, different, and I haven’t read many or any like them. Her world building is truly the strongest thing about her writing. I hope to one day meet the woman who has given me so many heart attacks, tears, and ulcers.

Melina Marchetta

Melina Marchetta

The author of LUMATERE CHRONICLES TRILOGY, ON THE JELLICOE ROAD, SAVING FRANCESCA, LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI, THE PIPER’S SON, TELL THE TRUTH SHAME THE DEVIL, and THE GORGON IN THE GULLY.

She stole my breath from the moment I read Finnikin of the Rock. From that moment on she owned my whole life. I didn’t think it was possible for someone else to do this to me when I had four others but alas here we are. If I ever met her I would ask her to kindly give me my mind back so it can stop thinking and dreaming of the land of Skuldenore. She is the queen of high fantasy. She is the queen of keeping every character’s voice distinct even with a huge cast. Her plots are fulfilling and adventurous I am never bored and always on edge. Her romance & sexual scenes are truly something else she actually had me blushing and squealing. Read her books people just read them.

Rick Riordan

The author of PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS SERIES, THE HEROS OF OLYMPUS SERIES, KANE CHRONICLES SERIES, MAGNUS CHASE & THE GODS OF ASGARD SERIES, THE 39 CLUES SERIES, THE TRIALS OF APOLLO, and TRES NAVARRE SERIES.

Rick Riordan is the King of diversity. Each of his books has characters with different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, sexualities, etc. His books have action from beginning to end.The books are comical, romantic (but not mushy or too much), fast paced, and so exciting. His mythology research is excellent and I love how he twists the tales to fit the narrative of his stories. His books are instant buys for me and I am never disappointed.

Reneé Ahdieh

reneé

The author of THE WRATH & THE DAWN SERIES, and THE FLAME AND THE MIST SERIES.

Reneé is the author of my favorite book of all time The Wrath & The Dawn. Her specialty is romance & depicting Asian culture beautifully. Myths and tales from Asian culture fascinate me because they are rich and vivid and Ahdieh captures that beautifully. The romance she weaves in her stories has my heart pumping. Khalid is the best male character created and his love for Shazi changed my view on love. I can’t wait to read all the other books she writes in the future.

Michelle Hodkin

michelle

The author of  THE MARA DYER SERIES, and THE NOAH SHAW CONFESSIONS SERIES

Queen of the paranormal genre. Her stories are so unique. I loved the idea of her books and the voices she gives each of her characters. I really love how her protagonists, antagonists, and secondary characters all feel important to the story. None of them feel like they’re thrown in as a filler because each and every one of them serves a purpose to the overall plot. The paranormal aspects of the books are so thrilling and chilling. I finish her books within 1-3 days because they are such page turners. I always grip them in anticipation and never see her plot twists coming.

These four authors are truly exceptional writers. I buy all of their books instantly and they all end up being five stars. I truly have a hard time finding things wrong with them and putting them down. Who are your favorite authors?
