This Meme is hosted by Thoughts On Tomes and the prompts can be found on Goodreads.
This week’s prompt is: Authors You Want to Read More From
1. Agatha Christie
I have read And Then There Were None & Murder on the Orient Express and really enjoyed both of them! Her writing and writing style is just amazing and I plan to read a lot more of her books!
2. Laini Taylor
I have read Strange the Dreamer and absolutely loved it! I wanted to read the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series for a while but since reading Strange the Dreamer I want to read it even more now!
3. Sarah J. Maas
I have only read A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. I’m currently waiting for A Court of Mist & Fury to arrive from Book Depository and have also Pre-ordered A Court of Wings and Ruin and plan to read them together. I enjoyed A Court of Thorns and Roses, it wasn’t absolutely amazing but everyone claims that A Court of Mist & Fury is even better, so I’m yet to see. I also own Throne of Glass and plan to read it. There is still 2 more books to come out in this series, so I will most likely leave it for a while yet so that way there isn’t a tonne of time between reading the ones that are out and waiting for the next books to come out.
4. Marissa Meyer
The only book by Marissa Meyer I have read is Heartless and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t my favourite. But that wasn’t because of Marissa Meyer’s writing, it was more because of the fact that it was a prequel of sorts to Alice in Wonderland and that meant that nothing was unexpected or unpredictable and I dislike predictable books.. So that I think just wasn’t the book for me. But I really want to try her The Lunar Chronicles series!
5. Jay Kristoff
I have read the first two books in The Illuminae Files and I can’t wait for the next book Obsidio. I haven’t read any book solely by him as The Illuminae Files is Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff and also The Illuminae Files is not a good book to judge someone’s writing skills on because it’s so different from a normal novel. I own Nevernight and I really need to get to reading this book. If I enjoy Nevernight then I will consider reading his The Lotus War series.

Great T5W post! I loved Meyer’s Heartless and was completely let down by Cinder, unfortunately. A few fellow book blogger friends keep telling me to keep reading the series as it gets better but Cinder was so dull that I don’t have the motivation to. If you read Cinder you’ll have to let me know what you think!
That is how I felt about City of Bones and City of Ashes. It was just meh and everyone has said it gets better in later books but I just don’t know if I want to continue because the first two just weren’t amazing!
And I’ll definitely will when I get to it. And will more than likely have a review up when I read it haha. 😂
I really need to read Illuminae! It’s just sitting on my shelf mocking me, but I haven’t had the time to get to it. Just FYI, the picture you have for Marissa Meyer is actually Marissa Mayer (the Yahoo CEO).
You really do! It’s amazing.
And shit. I have never seen a pic of her before so I just googled it and that’s what came up. I even made sure it was spelt Meyer because when I started typing google suggested Mayer and I knew that wasn’t right. So thank you google for failing me. 😑 Gotta love it. Will try and remember to change it tomorrow haha.

Same here. Ever since reading Strange The Dreamer sooooo many people have told me I need to read her series! I’m getting there people!
And I was actually tossing up between starting Cinder or Shadow and Bone last night and I ended up choosing Shadow and Bone. I haven’t read anything by Leigh Bardugo yet, so I wanted to read a new author.

Hahaha 😂 aw yay! I’ve only read the Shadow and Bone trilogy recently and I loved it! There’s one character that I’m like obsessed with but I can’t tell you their name yet until you’ve read the second book! 😀 hope you enjoy it!
