2018 was a wonderful reading year for me. I read so many amazing books and got to discover some new favorite authors.
Here’s a list of some new to me authors that you should definitely consider.
“If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse.”
My most favorite author of 2018 has got to be Holly Black. I read four of her books this year and went so far as to buy another two (none of the pictured) and ordered another one on Amazon. You can tell she’s taken over my life. I read The Cruel Prince in July and got an ARC of The Wicked King from the publishers.
As you can clearly see 2018 was a V.E. Schwab year. I’m not even complaining. Her writing is perfect, her characters have become favorites, and I’m officially adding every book she comes up with to my TBR. Vicious and Vengeful were absolute faves! And I was lucky enough to have gotten an ARC of City of Ghosts in August. Such a fun read!
I’m late I know but I only picked up Six of Crows last July. I was pretty freaked out to pick it up since it was hyped so much, and I was worried I would end up disliking it. But Leigh Bardugo really wrote a good one here. Six of Crows was so complex and simply amazing! Already ordered my copy of Shadow and Bone, and Crooked Kingdom is waiting on my bookshelf.
Akemi Dawn Bowman
I got an ARC of Summer Bird Blue from the publishers, and it quickly became a favorite. I hardly read contemporary books, but Akemi Dawn Bowman wrote such a wonderful book and I’m definitely going to read everything she write from now on.
