One of my favourite forms of procrastinating is adding more and more books to my Waterstones wishlist. So much so, I have them split into categories.
And I have a sneaky bonus wishlist that I have to scroll down to see.
So today I thought I’d share with you, 5 authors I really want to read more of!
Back in the day, when I started watching a lot of booktube and reading lots of blogs, I have heard a lot of good hype around Morgan Matson’s work. And after reading Amy & Roger’s Epic DeTour at the end of last year, I can see why! Her forte is contemporaries with added heartbreak. And I can’t wait to read more of them!
I absolutely adore Juno Dawson. I love following her on Twitter, listening to her talk at events & reading her column in Glamour Magazine. But I’m yet to complete her bibliography! I’ve yet to read two of her first published books. And I’m really looking forward to the next two of her books to be published – Margot & Me and The Gender Games.
Jeanette is a very famous author amongst the book world, with a huge backlist! I’ve reading her debut Oranges are not the Only Fruit and her latest The Gap of Time. While I really enjoyed The Gap of Time, I had a hard time getting into Oranges. So I’m excited to see what else I think of the rest of her backlist! Sexing The Cherry & The Stone God sound particularly interesting!
After reading and loving her book Lies We Tell Ourselves, I really want to dig my teeth into whatever she publishes next. Her forte is LGBTQ+ fiction. She has just published ‘As I Descended’ which has been described as a “lesbian Macbeth retelling” which I am definitely intrigued by and can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Kate Tempest is a writer who writes across various forms of writing. As well as being an acclaimed spoken word & written poet, she is also a playwright and has just published her debut novel. After reading her poetry collection “Hold Your Own” I’m excited to see how she tackles other forms of writing.
Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
