ten authors i’m looking forward to reading
posted by soe 1:19 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl is a freebie, but I’m tired enough that I’m having trouble coming up with my own topic. So I’m going to riff off Jana’s topic and give you ten authors I’ve read whose next book I’m looking forward to:

  1. Sherry Thomas — Luckily, I only have to wait until October for the next Lady Sherlock novel.
  2. Robert Galbraith — Similarly, the next Cormoran Strike novel is also due out this fall.
  3. Virginia Kantra — I just finished (and adored) Meg and Jo, and at the end the first chapter of Beth and Amy was included. She answered a question on Goodreads that says she’s hoping it will be published later this year, but who knows…
  4. Deanna Raybourn — Sure, the latest Veronica Speedwell only just came out this winter, but that doesn’t mean I can’t look forward to where the story goes next.
  5. Kate Racculia — I loved Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts and am looking forward to what this author brings out next. Luckily, I can explore her two earlier novels while I wait.
  6. Jason Reynolds — I haven’t read everything in his back catalog, but this week brought the news that he has a novel for adults coming out in 2022. He’s such a prolific writer, though, that’s probably half a dozen releases from now.
  7. Maia Chance — I love The Discreet Retrieval Agency mystery series and look forward to whenever the next one appears.
  8. Sonali Dev — This one is my fault. Her latest book in The Rajes series came out this spring; I just haven’t had a chance to access is yet.
  9. Elizabeth Acevedo — Similarly, Clap When You Land also came out this spring, and I just haven’t gotten to it yet .
  10. Jasper Fforde — His latest book is already out in the U.K., but won’t reach the U.S. until the fall. I’m looking forward to it already!

How about you? Which author can you not wait to read the next book from?

Category: books. There is/are 10 Comments.

I had not heard that Jason Reynolds has an adult book coming out. Wow. Thanks.

I have a big author party going in Paris, after the pandemic, and I’d love to have you stop by and join in. All our favorite writers are there. Join us here!

I hardly ever preorder books, but I preordered the new Fforde book. It’s always good to have something to look forward to, but especially these days.

I really liked Kate Racculia’s “Bellweather Rhapsody.” I didn’t realize she had two other books out. I will have to check them out.

I can’t wait for the next Lady Sherlock book either! 🙂

I didn’t know Jason Reynolds has a new book coming out. Neat.

Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

I loved Virginia Kantra’s Carloina series. I would highly recommend it.

I always look forward to the next Veronica Speedwell book. She and Stoker are such great characters. One of my favorite literary couples for sure.

Happy TTT!

I hope you love these authors! Elizabeth Acevedo is one I need to read soon too.

Oh, I am so glad I haven’t read Meg & Jo yet. I was hesitating because I wasn’t sure if I would take to it, but if I do, it would kill me not to have or even know for sure when the sequel was coming.

Aside from that, while I don’t really track specific authors/upcoming releases (that way it’s always a pleasant surprise when I randomly check their author page on Goodreads and see new bopks!), it sounds fun to have stuff to look forward to.

I need to read Elizabeth Acevedo’s new book and get back to Jasper Fforde.
