Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Shanah @the Bionic Bookworm and is now being hosted by Meeghan @Meeghan Reads!
This week’s topic is Authors to try. As in every top 5 Tuesday post lately, there are so many! But some of the highest on my list are:
- Rebecca Roanhorse – Her recent release, Black Sun, is getting so much hype! I really want to check it out, but I want to start with her previous series, Trail of Lightning, first!
- Andrea Stewart – She only just released her first book, but The Bone Shard Daughter sounds so good!
- Donna Tartt – I just really want to read The Secret History, I just feel like I would love it, but it is a bit intimidating!
- Joe Aercrombie – His work is on so many best fantasy lists, I would just love to see for myself what I think about his work!
- John Gwynne – Honestly, all of his work sounds so good! I own Malice, so IK hope to read it soon!
Narrowing this down to just 5 proved to be really difficult..

John Gwynn is really an author that I want to try!
I hope we both like his work!
I really loved Trail of Lightning! I can’t wait to read Black Sun. I also want to check out The Bone Shard Daughter as I’ve heard great things about that one. 🙂
I´ve heard so many good things about Trail of Lightning!
I hope we will both like Bone Shard Daughter!
Rebecca Roanhorse is definitely worth trying! I’m loving her Trail of Lightning series, but I gotta say Black Sun was in a whole other league. You can’t go wrong with starting with either! 🙂
Good to hear!
I recently bought Malice as well, and I got the audiobook for Joe Abercrombie’s First Law series, so hoping to try those authors this year as well!
I hope we will both love them!
I loved the Rebecca Roanhorse books (although I haven’t read Black Sun yet, and haven’t felt all that drawn to it.) I think I’m the only person I know who didn’t love The Secret History, but I just wasn’t a fan. Let’s see, authors I want to try… Patrick Rothfuss, since I haven’t read The Name of the Wind yet. And I’m sure there are a bunch more on my TBR list that I’m just not thinking of right now!
Glad to hear you liked Rebecca Roanhoarse so far!
I mean you cannot love every book?!
I love The Name of the Wind!
I keep hearing great things about these authors and would like to try their books too.
I hope we will both like them!
I seriously need to read some books by these authors too. I’m definitely hoping to read Bone Shard Daughter soon and I’m interested in both the Rebecca Roanhorse books that you mentioned. I hope that you get to read, and love, some books by all these authors soon.
One author I definitely need to read something by soon is Marie Lu. I have no idea how I haven’t gotten to any of her books yet.
Bone Shard Daughter sounds really good!
Oh I have read some by Marie Lu, I enjoyed Warcross, but wasn’t a big fan of The Young Elites!
Ah that’s a shame about Young Elites, it’s one of the ones I’m planning to read. Kingdom Of Back will probably be my first book of hers though.
I hope you will enjoy it more then me!
I really want to try Donna Tartt’s The Secret History, it’s so popular, but I am pretty daunted by it If I say I don’t like it, I will be kicked out the book community
Oooh!! Donna Tartt is an author that I want to try – I just don’t have any of their books. Great list!!
Me neither, but that is something I can change :p
