“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 :
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.
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.
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!
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?
