Bloggers, the linky to add your post is at the bottom!
Sarah J. Maas
She had to go first because I have spent the majority of the past two years working through her novels. This woman has a knack for ripping her readers’ hearts from their chests. Her world building skills and characters are worth the pain though. She also seems like a fun person to hang out with from her interviews.
I read her Wicked Lovely series in high school and became obsessed with all things fae. I love her world building and think about her characters often. I just found out she’s still writing more books set in the Wicked Lovely universe, and I’m excited to join that world again.
City of Bones was the first book post-Harry Potter that had me excited to pick up another series. I love that she has several books in the same universe because I feel like I never have to give up characters entirely. I’m several books behind, but I am excited to catch up and see what other adventures await in the Shadowhunter world.
I’ve only read A Curse So Dark and Lonely so far, but I love her because she portrayed Cerebral Palsy extremely well in an awesome female character. I love retellings, so it was right up my alley.
I love historical fiction and fantasy. Her His Fair Assassin trilogy was amazing. It is about a convent full of nuns who are trained to be assassins because they are the Daughters of Death. It is a very interesting concept because each book has a different maiden. You also get to see a duchess fight for control of her territory throughout all three books.
I admire this author because she brought fanfiction into the spotlight. I also love that she has now published the fanfiction in Fangirl into its own trilogy. Her books also have a really relatable theme to them. Even if you can’t identify with the characters’ exact struggles, you will find something that helps you become invested in the story.
Who are some of your favorite female authors and why? Have you read any of these? Let us know in the comments.
