Top 5 Wednesday: Authors You Want To Read More From!

Hey guys! This is gonna be a little quick post, just because I didn’t want to wait until Thursday for this and it is currently 10:30. #struggle. But, I loved this week’s topic and couldn’t wait to do it. So, let’s get into it!

  1. Jennifer L. Armentrout:
    I swear, there will be a day that I read EVERY SINGLE JLA BOOK. But, I haven’t read them all yet so I guess I can still include her in this. Haha. Okay, it’s a bit of a cheat since I have read 10 of her books, but she is my favorite author. And I would definitely love to read all of her books in the future!
  2. Marissa Meyer:
    Sadly, I really haven’t read many books by this Sci-Fi retelling queen. I started The Lunar Chronicles last year and am currently only two books into the series. *sigh*. I’ve also heard amazing things about Heartless which makes me super excited to dive into more of her books!
  3. Sabaa Tahir:
    I was recently introduced to the beautiful novels by Sabaa Tahir and I am obsessed!! I have only read AEITA by her but, I plan to read the sequel as soon as possible! I’m planning on waiting until the paperback comes out in August (I think) just so my series matches! If anyone knows of any future Sabaa Tahir novels, please let me know!
  4. Morgan Matson:
    If anyone is the queen of Summer contemporaries, it is Morgan Matson! I read Since You’ve Been Gone last summer and fell in love! It was so cute and heart warming. And, I recently got The Unexpected Everything in hardback, for $6, SIGNED! I’m planning to read it this summer!
  5. Leigh Bardugo:
    I really wish I owned every Leigh Bardugo book right now so that I could dive into every single world of hers! I recently read Six of Crows and it was everything I could’ve wanted in a book. Like OMG! But hopefully in the future I will be able to buy Crooked Kingdom and the Grisha trilogy!

THAT’S IT FOR TODAY! I hope you enjoyed this week’s Top 5 Wednesday! Don’t forget to like, comment and follow for more posts!

Teaser Tuesday #18

Hey Book Lovers! Did any of you forget what day it is? It’s time for another Teaser Tuesday! For any of you that haven’t caught on to what these are, they are little weekly segments that showcase a “teaser” from my current read. I usually like to choose an excerpt from my current page or one really close to my current one! If you would like to do these posts, please be sure to send me the link once it goes up! So now, without further ado, let’s get straight into this week’s teaser!

‘My words were interrupted when two guys farther down the pew suddenly exploded into snickers. Glancing up, I saw them looking right at me, not even bothering to hide their smirks.

Looking away, I triedto ignore them, suddenly hoping the priest would start up soon. But Lissa returned their looks, and a sudden fierceness flashed across her face. She didn’t say a word, but their smiles grew smaller under her heavy gaze.’

SO YUP, I am finally reading Vampire Academy! Although I read it back in 2016, I didn’t actually like it. I was in the worst part of a book slump then and didn’t enjoy it at all. But, I bought myself a cheap, “different cover” edition of Frostbite and thought I would give VA another go. And I have to say, I AM LOVING IT SO FREAKING MUCH!!!

If you haven’t heard of Vampire Academy, here’s the synopsis:

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)ONLY A TRUE BEST FRIEND CAN PROTECT YOU FROM YOUR IMMORTAL ENEMIES…

Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth’s magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires—the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.

After two years of freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir’s Academy, a school for vampire royalty and their guardians-to-be, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger…and the Strigoi are always close by.

Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let their guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever…

THAT’S IT FOR TODAY! I hope you enjoyed reading this week’s Teaser Tuesday! Don’t forget to like, comment and follow for more of my posts!
