“If I could choose only one author for each romance subgenre, which ones would I choose?” Crazy question, right? Why on earth would I ask myself that? So cruel! Some say it’s impossible to choose one favorite book, so I decided to pick authors that I believe have outstanding books. I classified them according to the genres I read the most. Some are well-known, others not so much. These are the top authors on my auto buy list :

Historical Romance

I have a soft spot for Julia Quinn because the first HRs I read was The Duke and I, and I devoured The Bridgeton Series. But Eloisa James seriously took the game to another level in my opinion. You should try her Fairy Tale series, even if you’re not a big fan of historicals.

Paranormal

Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark is my favorite series so far. She’s incredibly talented and knows how to plot her books with excellence. They’re intense, seriously hot, full of surprises and with a bit of fun. She also has an outstanding dystopian YA called The Arcana Chronicles that I highly recommend.

New Adult

This was a hard choice because I love Elle Kennedy, but I have to give this one to the duo Christina Lauren! I love everything they write! The Beautiful series is her most famous but I prefer The Wild Seasons series. Her characters feel real and the stories authentic. They’re very sexy too! 

Young Adult

This woman writes the best plot twists ever! Richelle Mead is the mastermind behind the Vampire Academy series and the spin off, Bloodlines. VA was one of the first romance books I read, so they have a special space on my bookshelf. She knows how to pen a sexual tension very well.I believe her best books are under the paranormal subgenre, and she has some great adult series too, Georgina Kincaid and Dark Swan

Sci – Fi

The Wings of Artemis series by Rebecca Royce really surprised me! It’s a reverse harem theme so I think it’s not for everyone. The author is very creative and talented. I also love her voice, there’s a sweetness to it. The Outsiders series isn’t sci-fi, it’s kind of paranormal but I love them, you can start by that.

My point with this list is: try to read outside the box and try new books, even it’s outside the genre you usually read. Challenge yourself! Next my challenge is to look for some LGBTQ reads! Any good suggestions? Which authors do you read the most?

  1. LOL Yes, why would we ever want to limit ourselves when it comes to books?!? Great post, Nat. I’d be hard pressed to limit myself to only 1 or 2 authors per genre but I definitely agree with on Kresley Cole and Richelle Mead. 😉 And I’m going to have to check out Rebecca Royce since I hadn’t heard of her previously. As for LGBTQ titles, I’m a fan of Ella Frank, Nyrae Dawn, Tara Lain…Frank’s are adult contemp, Dawn’s are NA contemp, and Lain writes contemp as well as paranormal. 🙂

  2. I’m having trouble with this one author concept. It is foreign to me. 😉 I do love those author’s you have suggested and those that I haven’t yet, they are on my must try list. As far as a LGBTQ book? The one that has stayed with me is Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey. It is a bit dystopian, super hero-ish and a strong romantic aspect. I haven’t read the second book (I want to read it) because at the time it was a LONG time between books. I’ll be rereading Santa Olivia again before I read the next one. It’s been so long. Hope you get some good recs.

  3. I enjoy reading outside of my comfort zone even if sometimes you have a miss! For LGBTQ suggestions have you read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda? It was a great read and put a smile on my face as well as tugged at my heart! It’s a YA novel.
