Hi everyone! I’ve been struggling a lot with writing and posting blog posts lately, but I saw Chelsea post her TTT post this morning and I thought “this looks like a fun theme, let’s do this too!” in the hope that writing a fun post like this could get me my blogging spark back! So, here are some books by favorite authors that I still haven’t read yet (and I’m kind of kicking myself for it).
Suffer Love and Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake – I fell in love with Ashley Herring Blake’s writing in How to Make a Wish, but I haven’t picked up any of her other books since because they’re all very hard-hitting, and I’m not really good with hard-hitting books. That’s why Girl Made of Stars isn’t on this list, because I don’t think I can handle reading that one at all. But I really want to get to Suffer Love and Ivy Aberdeen soon.
Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed – I read Amal Unbound by Aisha Saeed at the beginning of the year, and I thought it was incredible. Usually I don’t put authors on my favorites list after reading one middle grade they’ve written, but my friend Fadwa loves this author and this book so much that I kind of fell in love with it and her too.
The Boy in the Black Suit and When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds – Jason Reynolds is, after Rick Riordan, definitely my most read author. These are the only two books of his that I haven’t read yet, and the only reason why I haven’t read them yet is because I love his books as audiobooks, and I don’t currently have access to these audiobooks. Otherwise I’d pick these up right away.
Since You Asked by Maurene Goo – I adored The Way You Make Me Feel and I liked (but also kind of had mixed feelings about) I Believe in a Thing Called Love, so while I would call Maurene Goo a favorite author, this book could definitely change that. So I’m kind of scared to pick it up, especially because I’ve seen some mixed reviews.
This Side of Home by Renée Watson – I read Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson like… a month ago? I think? And the synopsis of this book sounds incredible so I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson – Jacqueline Woodson definitely became my most recent favorite author after I read two of her books this month (Harbor Me and Brown Girl Dreaming). She’s written quite a few books, so a lot of them are on my TBR, but this is the one I’m most interested in.
The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan – I’ve read most books Riordan has written so far (I don’t really care about the novella’s and lost interest in the Kane Chronicles) so this is the only one I have left. I’m not sure why I haven’t picked it up yet.
Solitaire by Alice Oseman – Radio Silence and I Was Born For This are definitely on my favorite-books-ever-list and I’m honestly really scared to pick this one up, because a few of my friends told me they didn’t love this one. And I don’t want to fall out of love with Alice Oseman’s writing.
