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. The Scorpio Races was probably my favourite book I read this year. Maggie’s back catalogue is so wonderful to read, I highly recommend it!!

      1. Ohh that’s awesome!! I started the audiobook for it a little while back but just didn’t have the time to read much of it. I think I got about 15-20% in and really enjoyed it so far, though, so I’m excited to continue it!

    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.

    1. 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 🙂

      1. Kristoff and Schwab are definitely two of my faves. They’re so good!
        Thank you for the recommendation! I keep forgetting I have a copy of Tyler Johnson Was Here that I need to read soon. 🙂
        You too, Lexxie! ♥

    1. 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!)

          1. That’s awesome! I wish more books did that, too. 🙂
            Oh, nice! I haven’t checked out the audio for any of her books yet except Fairest—if it’s the same narrator, I really liked how she did Fairest!

    1. 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!

    1. 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 ?
      Evie x |

        1. I have a copy of ‘A Darker Shade of Magic’ already, but would love to read Vicious too!

    1. I have a lot of these on my list as well like Cassandra Clare, Jay Kristoff, Seanan McGuire, and Kealan Patrick Burke to name a few.

    1. Marissa Meyer would be on my list too. Also Roshani Chokshi – I’ve only read one of her books and there are like, 3 more to read, plus one coming out in 2019.

    1. 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. Great post, I have only read Wild Beauty by Anne-Marie McLemore but I feel in love with it and would love to read the rest of her books 🙂

        1. Haha, it’s amazing and the audio is also really good if you want to try reading it in that format!

    1. this is such a lovely list!! one of my goals for 2019 is to read more victoria schwab!! to this day, i have not read a single one of her books, which my friends assure me is bookish blasphemy lol.

    1. Some great authors to read more of. I still need to read The Near Witch. I am very pleased that is being rerelased this year!

      1. Thank you! Ugh, he’s so good. I also loved LIFEL1K3. ♥ I read the first chapter of Stormdancer earlier this month but it doesn’t read like his usual writing style AT ALL so I set it aside until I’m more in the mood for it.

        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!

Say hello! ♥
