So there are so many authors that I have wanted to read for a long time now. A lot them I even own a book (or three) of and still haven’t gotten to them. This year I am determined to get to these 9 authors.
What are some authors you finally want to read this year?

I’m hoping to try more young adult authors this year, I read more YA in 2016 than I did in 2015 and I’m hoping to do that again this year. there seems to be so much good Ya in the pipeline. Greg recently posted…Would You Live Forever If You Could?
There really is so much good YA out there right now.
I’ve heard such great things about ll of them and I just need to make the time for them already!!
Jill Shalvis and Harlan Coben are two authors I’ve been meaning to pick up for the longest time! Tana French is on my list of authors I’m determined to read in 2017. Good luck with discovering the works of these authors. Jade recently posted…BOOK HAUL | Library Edition
Tana French is so good. I hope you get to her and enjoy!!! Thanks!
Harlan Coben – YES!!! You will love him! He is my favorite. I really want to read Six of Crows. Lauren Layne is also really great! So is Jill Shalvis. Enjoy!
I may have to steal this idea. 🙂 Brandie recently posted…Five Things Friday ~ 1-13-17
Yay! When I added Lauren Layne I thought of you specifically always raving 🙂 Thanks!!
This Adventure Ends was a cute read, and I’m glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t read Six of Crows yet! Angela recently posted…Throwback: Storm King Art Center
I have owned Six of Crows audio FORVEVER too. I just need to get to it!
Leigh Bardugo is on my list too – everyone is raving about her books so I feel I should cover her a try. Hope you get to all these great books this yea 🙂
I hope you get a chance to read all these. I read a Harlan Coben book a long time ago and was underwhelmed. I also need to read something by Leigh Bardugo. I’ve heard so many good things about her books. Aj recently posted…2016 Wrap-Up & Reading Stats
Thanks! Yeah Leah Bardugo is such a favorite among so many.
YESSSSSS to Lauren Layne and Jill Shalvis. Those are some of my favorite authors so you should definitely give them a go and if you like Lauren Layne, you should try Julie James because she’s the bomb too!
Sarah Ockler is another great author too though the mermaid book wasn’t one of my favorites from her. I’m itching to read First and Then. I tried reading it a long time ago but wasn’t in the mood but I’ve heard good things so I need to pick that one up again.
Good luck with these new to you authors. You’ve got many hours of great reading ahead of you. I’m low key jealous you’ll be reading some of these for the first time. They’re great! Rowena recently posted…Review: The Accountant
I will definitely check out Julie James! Thank you!!!
I really enjoy Harlan Coben’s sense of humor and I keep meaning to try Jill Shavis as well. Maybe this will be the year. Laurie recently posted…Botanicaust by Tam Linsey
I am actually reading her right now and so far so good!
OMG SO MANY GOOD ONES. I loved the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo and SoC, but still need to read CK. Emery Lord is one of my all-time favorites, so yes place. Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill is SO CUTE. I loved it but haven’t read anything else by her yet. Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler is my favorite; I wasn’t a huge fan of the Mermaid one. Both Emma Mills books were nearly perfect for me. ALSO I need to read Jill Shalvis this year for the first time too!! Lauren recently posted…Review: Sometimes We Tell The Truth
Ohhh I really love Lauren Layne. I hope you get to read something by her soon and love it! I want to read Kasie West or Sarah J. Maas. I haven’t read anything by either and everyone has been raving about them both. Julie recently posted…Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Kasie West is a favorite of mine. Her books are super cute!
You haven’t read Jill Shalvis?? You must fix that immediately! Her Lucky Harbor series is still my favorite but I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by her. I really want to read Harlen Coben and Lauren Layne too. Hopefully this is the year! Katherine recently posted…How to Ruin a Queen – Nonfiction Review
I am fixing it!! Currently reading her latest and enjoying it!
I have some authors like that too, where I own multiple books and hardly have read any of them. I tried some new to me authors last year from whom I bought more of their books that I hope to read this year. I really like Jill Shalvis, in fact Accidentally on Purpose is probably my next read. I enjoyed that series so far and her Cedar Ridge series is good too. I hope to get to her older series eventually as well. I don’t think I’ve read any of the other authors you listed.

I am reading Accidently on Purpose now and really enjoying it!
OMG SIX OF CROWS. <3 One of my favorite books of all time! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did once you give it a try. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! <3 Zoe recently posted…Carve the Mark
Six of Crows and the Start of You and Me are on my TBR! I absolute love this topic, Grace – I may have to steal it! The Bibliophile Babe recently posted…TBR Thursday
I have wanted to read his books for so long too. This year for sure!
Everything on your list haha! Mainly Emma Mills, and I am in the middle of Crooked Kingdom, but yes to Six of Crows! I hope you really end up liking that series 🙂 Valerie recently posted…Review: Scythe
I am really excited for Six of Crows and not sure why I have put it off for so long!
I more stumble into new authors than actually plan to read them each year, but I’m always glad I give certain ones a chance. This is a great list and I hope you end up enjoying these authors, though I’m really only familiar with Jill Shalvis and Leigh Bardugo.
I loved ‘Six of Crows’, so hope that you will enjoy it as well. I’d also argu that it is better than Bardugo’s debut trilogy, ‘The Grisha’.
Jill Shalvis is one of my more favorite Contemporary Romance authors, but she’s also a hit-or-miss with a lot of her work. I definitely recommend the first three of her ‘Lucky Harbor’ series though. I’m working through some more of her work this year and trying to finish the rest of ‘Lucky Harbor.’ Ani recently posted…Ani’s 2017 Personal Series Challenge Goals
Thank you!! I have heard the Lucky Harbor series is very good.
Ooh, such a great list! Leigh Bardugo is my queen. I also adore the heck out of Emery Lord. Lauren Morrill’s books are super cute, quick reads (she’s also a local author to me and is very kind). I definitely want to get to both of Emma Mills’s books this year because I hear nothing but wonderful things about them. And I’ve yet to read any Sarah Ockler, but her books always intrigue me!

Great topic, Grace! I’ve only read two by Lauren Layne so far but loved them both. Look forward to reading a lot more by her. Leigh Bardugo is one I definitely want to start reading this year. I’ve been meaning to read the Grisha trilogy for so long. I’m determined that it will happen this year! Tanya recently posted…Long Way Home by Katie McGarry: Review + Excerpt + Giveaway!
Emery Lord and Emma Mills are DEFINITELY on my list. I need to get to them ASAP- especially since I own a lot of their books. Leigh Bardugo is a MUST. I hope you get a chance to read these soon! Shannon recently posted…Ten Favorite “The 100” Friendships
