Authors I Want to Read More From in 2019

As I mentioned in my reading resolutions post, I want to add one unread book from a previously loved author to every month’s TBR next year! In the spirit of preparing for that one (any guesses on what my January pick will be?), I thought I’d make a list of some of the authors I’ll be choosing from—and the books I haven’t read yet from them! (Obviously, I won’t read every book I’m listing here, these are just my options!)

New goal for 2019: when I redo this list at the end of next year for authors I want to catch up on in 2020, it needs to be WAY more diverse!

If you have any marginalized authors with multiple releases (preferably 3+!) you’d like to recommend I catch up on in 2019, PLEASE let me know in the comments, and tell me which of their books I should read first! ♥

  1. I absolutely have Jay Kristoff and Seanan on my list too. Technically I can include Schwab because I haven’t read her duology and I got the second book for Christmas so it’s time! Great list.


  2. Jay Kristoff and VE Scwhab are on my list for authors I want to read more from, too!

    For diverse reads, I recommend the following :
    When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
    Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom
    Anything and everything by Becky Albertalli
    Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles

    I’m sure there are many more I could mention, but I only started using a ‘diverse books’ shelf on Goodreads this year.

    Enjoy the last few days of 2018 🙂


  3. For Godsgrave, I definitely recommend waiting until closer to Darkdawn release (September 2019 as of now?) – I read Nevernight & GG right when GG was released, anddddd I forgot so much. I plan to reread them before Darkdawn because that series is SO GOOD. (GG wasn’t as good as NN, imo, but still very good!)

    And I look forward to you reading more Cassie Clare 😉

    I also lovedddd Heartless by Marissa Meyer – its a standalone, which is nice because less commitment. Not everyone liked it, so its a hit or miss, but as a huge Alice in Wonderland fan, I adored her retelling of the Queen of Hearts!


    1. Thank you for the heads up! I’m actually planning on rereading Nevernight before picking up Godsgrave, so that should help me put it off until a little closer to Darkdawn’s release! 😀

      I love a good standalone, and while I’m not a huge Alice in Wonderland fan, I ADORE retellings—for some reason, while the original story doesn’t work well for me, I think the setting and characters do, if that makes sense. So I’m looking forward to Heartless for sure!!

      1. One beautiful thing about Godsgrave is, it actually HAS a summary of the last book in the front of it! Just a little reminder of who is who and what they did – I wish more books did that!

        Retellings are wonderful! Can’t wait to see what you think of Heartless when you read it~ (I also liked the audiobook of it, but I’m a huge fan of the narrator (Rebecca Soler) who does narration for alllll of Marissa Meyer’s books!)


  4. Oohh nice list! I’m very interested in reading more by Jay Kristoff – I bought Lifel1k3 when it first came out and haven’t read it yet but def looking forward to it.

    In terms of more diverse authors, I’m just throwing some names out there in case you wanted to take a look at who have a fair amount of books out: Nnedi Okarafor, Claudie Arseneault, J.Y Yang (The Tensorate Series are all novellas so super quick to get through and REALLY GOOD), N.K Jemisin (Lauren @ Northern Plunder’s Books and Tea group is doing a read of the Broken Earth trilogy in 2019!), Nisi Shawl, Aliette de Bodard (also really great novellas), Kaia Sonderby. 🙂


    1. Thank you! I hope you like LIFEL1K3. It isn’t my favorite of Kristoff’s work but it’s really fun and has some great laugh out loud moments. 🙂

      Thank you so much, this list is amazing! ♥ And on Nnedi’s books, I’m actually planning on reading the first Binti book by the end of the month and I can’t wait!


  5. I’m itching to read more by Jay Kristoff! I’m yet to read anything by VE Scwhab though, definitely on my list for 2019! I’ve been meaning to read Lady Midnight for the longest time too, I’ve read nothing but glowing reviews about it 👏

  6. What a great list! A lot of amazing authors on here :3 I’m hoping to read some of Schwab’s & Meyer’s work; from excerpts I’ve read and things I’ve heard, their books sound so good and I can’t wait to see how I’ll enjoy them! 😻


      1. I reaaally hope that one comes out of my jar this month but since I’m not even halfway through Godsgrave, it’s.. pretty much the question whether I’ll pull out a third book yes or no. :’)
        I can’t even imagine him writing differently than what I know so far?! Yikes!
