Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday Eve!
I secretly love doing these. It’s like, wanting to share a review on release day means I have to move Top Five Tuesday, which makes me feel like I get the jump on everyone.
I think maybe I’m just a smidge competitive.
How fitting is it that the book I have to review tomorrow, for it’s release day, just so happens to be the first author I list below. It’s like I get to celebrate him twice. (Not to mention I have two most favorite authors, and they’re both listed this week!)
Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm!
I feel like it’s stupid to say, but I am so proud of this man!
He is one of the best writers I’ve ever read, and I feel like I got to go on the journey with him. I remember his announcement about his deal with Tor, and here he is, his first major release hits shelves tomorrow.
Congratulations, TJ! You deserve it!
I’ve never been a cozy mystery reader. It’s really just not my thing. Josh Lanyon hooked me by adding a series romance to each of hers. I have always been a sucker for a good romance. (My favorite is Holmes and Moriarity. In case you’re wondering.)
And, here we are with the other author in my two most favorites. It’s TJ Klune and Melina Marchetta. They are not similar, other than making their readers fall madly in love with every character they ever write.
What TJ does for adult romantic fiction, Melina does for YA.
You can’t go wrong with either of them.
Patrick Ness is another amazing author in the YA world. I know the world has heard of A Monster Calls, especially after the movie. If you loved it, like I did, then you should read The Knife of Never Letting Go, book 1 in the Chaos Walking trilogy. It’s amazing, AND the movie is coming out soon! (It has Tom Holland and Nick Jonas, I mean come on!)
Etc, Etc, Etc
So far, of all the letters we’ve done, I had the hardest time with O. Between Goodreads, Birdie Bookworm, and my physical shelves, I only had 4 authors. So, here are the three I liked the most. The only one I think I’ll read again is Ellen O’Connell. So, there’s that.
