BOOK TALK

Authors I discovered this year 2020 || you will be shocked (most probably😅)

This list isn’t exactly “Authors I discovered this year”. I knew that some of them existed, I just never read a book by him/her. In other words – “new-to-me” authors. 🙂 And honestly, I found some of my ALL time favourites this year!! And this goes a long way as to why this was a relatively good year for me.😊 If you have been following my blog for a while, you will be shocked. Even if you haven’t – you will be shocked.😂

SARAH J. MAAS

Can you freaking believe it!?😱 Now here is an interesting story for all of you – I had picked up the “Throne of glass” two years ago, but I had read a few reviews, and everyone seemed to hate it. So, yeah, I didn’t read it. Can you believe it!? And earlier this year I picked it up again and I didn’t realize that it was the same book, until I completed it, loved it, and started hunting the internet for reviews so I could relate. lol. 😐I mean – lol.🤐 And now it’s my fav series.😅

(I have read the TOG and ACOTAR series so far).😇

My reviews – Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight

Skyhunter! Okay…shocker! I got an ARC of this book from NetGalley and I am yet to read the published book, BUT I loved it! It totally vibed with me and I am glad I asked for the ARC.😁

My review – Skyhunter

I don’t have any words!😭 I am just thanking my lucky stars for giving me “spontaneity”, because I wouldn’t have read this book otherwise.

My review – They Both Die At The End

I read the Northern Lights, but I never got to finish the series. I really want to though.🥺

Kite Runner. 😥No words for this one either. I want to read all his other works, but hearing my mom gushing about how heart-wrenching they all are, I am…uh…not sure.😰

My review- The Kite Runner

Did you discover any new-to-you authors this year?

UNTIL NEXT TIME!

  1. I’d already known Salman Rushdie, but I didn’t read his ‘Midnight’s Children’ until last year. It was freaking amazing, as was Fritjof Capra’s ‘The Tao of Physics’, which I had picked up a couple of years ago but didn’t have a chance to finish.

  2. It’s totally fine if you didn’t know all of these authors before! As long as we aren’t bashing them without knowing who they are, it’s totally ok! We read what we want, so if you didn’t read books by these authors before, I don’t think anyone should judge you. Great post by the way!!

  3. I want to “discover” Jay Kristoff and Marie Lu this year as well. I see so many people writing glowing reviews for their books. I hope this year is just as good for you in finding good books!

  4. I read a book by amitava ghosh long time back. BUT I can’t remember the name. Bummer. It was about floods and there was tide in the title? Argh! That’s annoying. It was about immigration. And two brothers. And …. politics. 😂🤣 I am terrible.
