#T5W: Authors I Want to Read More From

Top Five Wednesday is a book meme that Lainey started and I discovered through the lovely Samantha‘s videos. If you’re interested you can join the goodreads group to get the topics for each week.

This week’s topic:

April 26th: Authors You Want to Read More From
–Talk about some authors that you’ve only read one or a few books from, and you NEED to read more!

Okay but this topic is so hard??? How can you choose five or even ten authors?? I personally can’t do that and that’s why I’m cheating and having two separate lists :’)



C.S. Pacat
Her Captive Prince trilogy is my favorite series of all time so it’s only fair that I want to check out whatever she will come up with next! I think she’s currently working on a fantasy YA (as well as the final Captive Prince short story) and I really can’t wait to read more from her. I love her characters and the emotion she creates more than the writing style, but I do think that her style fit CP perfectly. Also, I like it more every time I reread it so there’s really nothing I don’t like about this author.

Nora Sakavic
I think I’ll be happy if her next work is even just half as intense as The Foxhole Court is. If we talk about the writing, it’s not very lyrical or anything, but her stories aren’t that at all anyway. But I freaking loved it. It’s so simple and yet every word has meaning – I’m telling you I never skipped a single word in that trilogy, even when she’s describing things like characters washing the dishes or things like that. I don’t know how she does it but I can’t get enough of her.

Madeline Miller
I’ll probably never read The Song of Achilles again because I can’t handle the feels one more time, but I’ll definitely be reading everything she writes next, especially given that I love Greek mythology (her next work is an Odyssey retelling from Circe’s PoV!)

Leigh Bardugo
I don’t think her writing style is very peculiar or different from other authors, but I think her strengths are the characters, the banter and the plot. She already announced a couple of books both in and out of the Grisha-verse and I’m highly anticipating all of them.

Elise Kova
Her ability to create fantasy worlds with real characters is amazing! I know she has a contemporary book or series in the works so I’m definitely curious to read that once she’s done with her two current fantasy series.


V.E. Schwab
I’ve only read her Shades of Magic series and I completely fell in love with both the characters, the world and the writing style. She has so many books out and I’ll slowly be checking them all out.

Laini Taylor
Her writing style is amazing and I can’t wait to read Strange the Dreamer! I’m just waiting to be out of my reading slump because I don’t want to ruin my reading experience.

Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven Cycle made me fall in love with her writing and her characters, but I somehow still didn’t check out her previous works! I don’t know if it’s my fear of being disappointed but I think I’ll rather check out her future works and then slowly try to read what she published before TRC.

Rainbow Rowell
I’ve only read Fangirl and Carry On but I loved them and I especially enjoyed her writing style. She has so many other books out so I really don’t know where to start from – if you have any suggestions let me know!

Austin Chant
I’ve only read Peter Darling by him and it was such a great surprise! I will check out his previous books but most of all I’m curious to read his next works (he mentioned one of his next stories has to do with ice skaters so – aehm – I just have to!)

What are some authors that you are just dying to read more from?

  1. Great list, fellow-Silvia! 🙂 I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read anything by these authors yet, but the Six of Crows duology is VERY high on my TBR and hopefully I will get round to it soon. Also, I really like the sound of The Song of Achilles because I love my Greek mythology (I grew up reading those stories), and I haven’t read any Greek myth retellings yet (unless you count A Court of Mist and Fury but the retelling element in that one felt a bit too loose for my liking).

    1. Whoop whoop for another Silvia! 😀
      Don’t be ashamed, the beauty of being a reader is that we may all reader different things but we’re still all part of this nice community! 🙂
      Six of Crows is one of my absolute favorites so I’m pretty sure you’re going to love it too! And TSOA is heartbreakingly beautiful, just be prepared to have tissues by your side because you’ll need them (and I love Greek mythology too! My mom used to tell me those stories instead of classical fairy tales and then I studied ancient Greek -the language and the literature- in high school ♥).
      Also thank you for the friend request on goodreads, I was happy to accept you 🙂


  2. Great list, and we’ve chosen a couple of the same authors! It sounds like I would really enjoy Elise Kova’s books too, since characters are always a huge factor in how much I enjoy a book. So thanks for the recommendation! Is there any particular series of hers that I should start with?

    1. I’d definitely recommend starting with Air Awakens since it’s her first series and all books are already out (especially if you like binge reading)! Her characters are amazing, and not just the main ones. The world building is fairly easy but definitely interesting, and she managed to portray so many real-world issues in it even though it’s fantasy.
