This weeks topic is ‘Top 5 Authors You Discovered This Year’.

Every year I try to read a book from an author I’ve never read anything by. Sometimes I regret buying the book and sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised. Below are authors that I’ve discovered can tell a story, greatly.

Revolver by Marcus Sedgewick

9527146This is a unique story and it was told in a way that I haven’t read before. I think I’ve learned of a new way to tell a story just by reading this.

Daytripper by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba.

8477057A fantastic graphic novel. Very philosophical. I remember liking the art style. Can’t say much else about this as it’s been a while since I’ve read it.

The Winners Curse by Marie Rutkoski

19415228I love this book. Not many authors can make me care so much about a character. I don’t remember the last time I cared this deeply for a character. I hope to read everything Marie Rutkoski has written.

SteelHeart by Brandon Sanderson

18245330I haven’t heard anyone say they don’t like Brandon Sanderson’s books so I expected to like this. It was fun and fast paced. When I try to envision the story, I see it as a cartoon. Like something I would have seen as a child.

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

8757361I really enjoyed reading this book. I love Melina Marchettas writing style. I hope to read all of her other books.

Thank you for reading, if you have anything to say please leave a comment below and also check out GingerReadsLainey on Youtube and her GoodReads group T5W.

I hope you’re having a great day

    • You definitely should! Winners curse is great and I liked it for its romance, but if I could choose one of these books you should start with, I’d recommend Finnikin of the Rock. Its under appreciated. Very well written and the story telling is amazing.
