Apparently, I have always had a type. (Cough cough, paranormal-y fantasy-y) And, I’m okay with that. I have loved each of these authors’ works at one point or another at some point in time, and honestly would probably re-read some of the books that I haven’t read in a minute if only for nostalgia’s sake. Most of these authors I haven’t read since early high school? Holy wow that was 10 years ago. Yikes. I think at this point in time, I wanted to read everything from authors that I had been enjoying… and it looks like I came close to just that.
- Cate Tiernan: Tiernan is one of my most read authors probably mostly because of the Sweep series. Honestly, whoa did not realize that I have read this many books – but I’m sure I read them all at or around the same time. I don’t remember much from the series besides that they were super quick to get through and I binged them. I also still own the individual books and have been thinking of getting the bind ups to save space… but I am kind of attached to my current copies.
- L.J. Smith – another author that I read a whole bunch of at or around the same time These books were read at the same time as the sweep series. I was very much into the paranormal genre in the early 2000s, and I’m still not mad about it. Smith’s works were a continuation of the vampire kick that I had been on (and might potentially revisit soon). The writing style was also super easy to get into and very addictive.
- Richelle Mead: Again, vampires brought me to this author. Again, easily readable made me stay. I’ve read the entire Vampire Academy series, and part of the spinoff Bloodlines series. I also remember reading her standalone Soundless, but I don’t quite remember details from that one. I also have a copy of Gameboard of the Gods around here somewhere….
- Sarah J. Maas: I have read the Court of Thorns and Roses series in its entirety, finished Crescent City and am currently in the middle of the Throne of Glass series. I hope to finish ToG by the end of 2020.
- Leigh Bardugo: I love her aesthetic and her writing style. Auto-buy author. 10/10 would recommend. As of right now, I believe I have finished all of her current works.
- Rachel Hawkins: I found Rachel Hawkins through her Hex Hall series, and am interested in The Ex Hex which might be a companion series?? I have also finished the Rebel Belle series this year and even though unhauling that series, I did enjoy it.
