Book Girls Don't Cry (6) Favorite Authors

Hello all my fabulous readers!! Welcome to another week of Book Girls. This weeks topic is our favorite authors, and I thought it would be better to do just a regular post rather than a vlog, but then I kept putting off making the post so I ended doing a vlog because it was quicker than typing it all up and getting the covers and all that. We all know how I love to ramble, so I apologize for it being a little long. 

We will be posting as follows:
 
Jenni @ Alluring Reads - Mondays (YouTube Channel)
Giselle @ Xpresso Reads - Thursdays/Fridays (whichever works best) (YouTube Channel)
Amy (Me) @ Book Loving Mom - Saturdays (YouTube Channel)
This weeks posts from the other BGDC girls:
 
Favorite Authors
 


For those of you who don't want to or can't watch, the authors mentioned in the vlog are:

  • Rachel Vincent
  • Rhiannon Frater
  • Lauren Oliver
  • Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • Kendall Grey
  • Dean Koontz
Of course there are many other authors who I absolutely adore and are must buy for me (like Tracy Garvis Graves and Lisa Burstein... and so many more), but I didn't want to make this post ridiculously long. Who are some of your favorite authors? Let me know in the comments. As always, we love topic suggestions too. You can fill out the form on any of our blogs on our Book Girls pages!!

  1. I can't believe I haven't read anything by Jennifer Armentrout, Kendall Grey, or Rhiannon Frater yet...they are all very high on my list! I really love what Kendall is doing for the whales too. I'm a little scared to read JLA, though, because I'm already SO jealous of her for her crazy productive writing schedule...HOW DOES SHE DO IT!?

    1. OMG JLA has so many books out and coming out. I am so excited for all of them. Apollyon, Obsession, Origin, Tempting the Bodyguard, Unchained, Frigid, and Sentinel all come out this year I think. Wow, right? Kendall is really amazing, you should definitely check out her books. And dude, I love Rhiannon too!! Obviously since she was one of my top authors lol!!

    1. I became a Rachel Vincent fan as soon as I read the first of her Shifters books. I was totally hooked and then bought the whole rest of the series and read it all in 3 days.

    1. Thanks! With so many fabulous authors it was hard to narrow it down and not make this list super long.

    1. I have never read Richelle Mead or Michelle Rowen. I will have to check them out. We tend to really enjoy the same books and authors.

  7. I'm so glad you mentioned Rachel Vincent. I just finally sat down last month and read My Soul To Take and I'm already moving on to My Soul To Save. I cannot praise her writing enough. She's pretty "new" to me, but I'm at a point where I want to just go ahead and grab everything she's written and with a TBR as big as mine (I buy too much as it is!) that's saying something.

    Also glad to see Jennifer L. Armentrout listed. I've only read Obsidian so far but I thought it was amazingly well done.

    1. Yes, when I read Rachel Vincent's first book I was hooked and I did buy every book she had out at that point and read them all. Of course that was before I started blogging so I had time to just read like 8 books in a row that I wanted.

  8. So I love JLA - you know that. She is my favorite author, period. I just love her strong female characters and the snark.

    Great choices.

    1. I love how JLA writes characters. She makes me feel like I know them. Or at least want to know them lol. I always am hooked within the first chapter of any of her books. She is an auto buy author for me!!

  9. Lauren Oliver would be on my list for sure! I read My Soul to Take but haven't yet had a chance to continue the series and I like JLA too. :)

    1. Lauren Oliver is fabulous!! I love both her YA and MG. I love Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series, but I think her Shifters series is my favorite of hers. I have only read the 1st book in her Unbound series, but I really loved it.

  10. Oh Rachel Vincent! I have had her first Soul book series whatever on my shelf for OMG like 2 years O_O I didn't know you loved her at all I have to read it asap! Or maybe even audiobook it!

    Frater! YEAH! I say it different than you lol. I say it like the an is more AH. Whatever. haha.

    I have 1h left in my first YA Lauren Oliver book (listening to the audiobook) and it's a really great book! Solid 4 stars if not 5--depends on the ending ending, and you have to know my 5s are rare so a 4 is still fantastic! ;) I have to get to delirium soon after as well! I did love Liesl & Po too though which I only just realized was by her!

    JLA is awesome !I have to read her NA/Adult stuff! I loved Obsidian. The sequel was almost a 3 for me though it was so long!

    Kendall Grey is awesome I have only read the one book though, but it was great!

    Dean Koontz I think I read 1 book by *checks Goodreads* Hmm weird I have none. Maybe I read none. O_O What's wrong with me? But I did hear of him for SURE! I'm not a loser! I'M NOT! *cries*

    1. I think you would really love Rachel Vincent's Shifters series and Unbound series. Those are her adult ones. I mean the Soul Screamers series is awesome too though.

      Haha I never know how to say names.

      Ohhh I love audiobooks and I loved Before I Fall on audio. The reader was fantastic. She's the same reader for Delirium too.

      You so have to read Wait For Me and JLA's adult books!! They are amazing!!

      You should also finish the Just Breathe series by Kendall Grey. She is totally awesome. She has a new series coming out too.

      Okay, so maybe a lot of people haven't heard of Dean Koontz. I may have hurt some feelings. You all don't have to leave. He writes adult thriller novels kind of like Stephen King. There's been a few movies based on his books too. You would love his books!! They are creepy and awesome!

  11. The only authors that I have read from on your list are Oliver, Armentrout and Frater (though I try to forget that last one ever happened) I really loved Obsidian but I wasn't a huge fan of Onyx and have been staying away from Opal. I do think that I could really like her NA though and want to give it a try. The back and forth drived me insane in the Lux series and I think I would get a lot more of what I needed from her NA. Fabulous list! I really need to read more Koontz!

  12. YES I was definitely waiting for you to mention JLA - LOVE her Covenant series & can't wait to crack open my copy of Obsidian and experience the Lux series :D Rachel Vincent is on my radar now thanks to you mentioning her on my blog awhile back & her Shifters series is on the reading list! I've only read Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver but I fell in love with her writing style & need to read my copy of Delirium soon!! Oh and I have heard of Dean Koontz before, he's been highly recommended so I'll have to check him out :) Great selection here ♥

  13. YAY! Love Rachel Vincent! That author is sooo freaking awsome. I also love Patricia Briggs, Rachel Caine, Kelley Armstrong.

  14. Richelle Mead, Colleen Hoover and Rachel Gibson are my MUST-read authors. I don’t care what they write about, I WILL read it and I know I will LOVE it!!!
    Richelle’s adult series Succubus Blues is one of my favorite EVER! Everything by Colleen Hoover is freaking beautiful! And I’ve read and reread most of Rachel Gisbon’s books 3-7 times each. My faves are Truly, Madly Yours (probably my favorite book ever), Tangled Up In You and It Must Be Love.
