I am back with another #SixforSunday! This is a series hosted by A Little But A Lot and this Sunday’s topic is six favourite authors to follow. I will be honest, I haven’t really had a favourite author in a long, long time. I am slowly starting to find some favourites, so this post will be authors that I will follow and likely look out for new stuff from them.
1. Scott Lynch
If you know me well you will know that The Lies of Locke Lamora is one of my favourite books and that I recommend it to anyone looking for fantasy recommendations, or looking to try out fantasy for the first time. As a result I will sit and wait for Lynch to write more in this world, or any world really. I highly recommend picking this one up if you haven’t before.
2. Caitlin Starling
This one really shocked me. I was not expecting to enjoy this debut sci-fi horror at all, but I really enjoyed it. This didn’t feel like a debut and if Starling continues to write sci-fi horror or atmospheric horror I will absolutely pick them up in the future.
3. William Joyce
I have been falling hard for William Joyce’s work. He writes absolutely beautiful children’s literature. His work has also inspired a number of my favourite movies. With that being said there is no way I could avoid following his future work. I have loved everything I’ve read by him so far.
4. Mira Grant
I absolutely adored Into the Drowning Deep last year. So, I am definitely excited to see what Mira Grant does next. Yes, I know Mira Grant is Seanan McGuire’s sci-fi/horror pen name and I could absolutely pick up her other work, but I am much more interested in her sci-fi/horror titles than her other titles.
5. Jen Wang
Again, this is a book I adored. I really loved The Prince and the Dressmaker and the art was fantastic. So, I will absolutely be keeping an eye out for her new work. I know she has another graphic novel out and I will likely be picking it up eventually.
6. Rivers Solomon
Alright, this is one where I can’t really say how I felt about their book, because I haven’t finished it yet, but from the little that I have read I already know I will want to read more. Their concept and writing style is incredibly engrossing and interesting. I will absolutely be following future work from Rivers Solomon.
Are you interested in any of these authors?
