Authors I discovered in 2018!

Hey everyone! I missed Top Ten Tuesday last week but I really liked the topic (and I already posted something similar to this week’s prompt so I decided to just swap things a bit!) Why not, eh? 😉

I discovered some amazing authors in 2018, some of whom became new favourites and that I really want to read more from this year!

Lucinda Riley

Lucinda Riley is quite a prolific author but my introduction to her work came through her Seven Sisters series. There are currently five books published in the series, with another two due, and I honestly have not been so excited about a series since Harry Potter was first released! The plot is so clever and intricately woven, with amazing characters and stunning settings. I have given five stars to every book in the series so far.

Christina Henry

Christina Henry is one of the authors I discovered last year who has become a firm favourite. Her super dark retellings give me life. I’ve read two of her books so far with another three on my TBR for this year. I don’t know if I’m interested in Henry’s backlist, the Black Wings series, but I’ll definitely be picking up anything she writes in future.

Susanna Kearsley

Kearsley was an author who was on my radar for a long time. Her books always sounded like something I would enjoy. However, it if wasn’t for my book club picking The Winter Sea last year, I might still not have tried her. Hooray for book club, it ended up being one of my favourites of the year! I can’t wait to read more of her books and already have three on my TBR shelf for this year.

Margaret Atwood

I know, I know. It took me a ridiculously long time to jump on the Atwood bandwagon. But I’m here now and in it for the long haul!

Daphne du Maurier

I finally sampled the queen of the Gothic in 2018 and I will definitely be continuing my journey with her. Rebecca is a masterpiece.

I have talked about the Perfect series before and I am currently up to date with it, yay! The fifth book comes out this year and I am READY.

Neal Shusterman

Scythe was another book club pick and I loved it. It was so original! And the sequel *might* just be better than the first book. I can’t wait for the trilogy’s conclusion this year!

Sarah Addison Allen

Allen’s books seem to just be really sweet, nothing too mind-blowing but cute, fun reads, which is sometimes exactly what you need. And she’s only written 6 books so it shouldn’t be too hard to catch up!

Katrina Leno

Magical realism is one of my favourite genres and this book handled a difficult subject really well. I’d love to read more of Leno’s books soon.

Christina Lauren

Autoboyography is another book that became a firm favourite last year. I’m not a huge romance reader but I’d still be interested in reading some more books from this dynamic writing duo.

Wow, this post took HOURS to compile! Ugh, the self-doubt is strong today; I’ve stressed myself out about this post and I’m not even overly happy with it. Oh well. We can’t love them all, I guess. It was still fun to look back at the authors I discovered in 2018!

Have you read any of these authors? If so, can you recommend which of their books I should try next?! Leave me a comment below! x

  1. This is such a great list! I really want to read all of Katrina Leno’s books, they all sound INCREDIBLE and I can’t wait to get to them 🙂 I’m also looking forward to reading Scythe, I’ve heard so much about this series, so happy you enjoyed it so much! 🙂
