Authors I can’t wait to try

Bookworm that I am, books are like candy to me.

The anticipation of reading is almost as good as the reading itself.

I read a lot of book blogs. Friends, and my fellow bloggers, have introduced me to some authors I have not, as yet, had the opportunity to read.  So… I thought I’d write a post on the authors I have NOT tried yet, but that I’m certain I will enjoy, and highly anticipate reading.  All are now on my very lengthy TBR.

I have provided a link to the authors’ Goodreads profile, and also put a link for the book that I want to read first by each individual author.

Starting with authors of thrillers (in alphabetical order):



Louise Beech





David J. Bell





Tony Black





Tammy Cohen





Mark Edwards




Elizabeth Haynes




Julia Heaberlin




Harriet Lane




Rosamund Lupton




Gilly Macmillan




Angela Marsons




B.A. Paris


Mel Sherratt


Sarah Ward



and also these authors who write general/literary fiction and historical fiction (in alphabetical order):



Patricia Falvey





Susanna Kearsley





Liane Moriarty





Maggie O’Farrell





Lucinda Riley



These are in addition to all of the wonderful authors I’ve already read and want to read more of.  Where will I find the time?  Isn’t life grand?

If you HAVE read any of these authors, I’d love to hear your thoughts.tbr-out-of-control

    I highly recommend Mark Edwards and B.A. Paris! Follow You Home and The Magpies were honestly two of the best thrillers that I’ve ever read. Also, I couldn’t but down Behind Closed Doors by B.A Paris! It was so well written and gripping.

    If you’re in the market for more detailed reviews, I’ve posted about all of those titles on my blog.

    Enjoy & can’t wait to hear your thoughts! ❤


  2. I highly recommend Mel Sherratt and Mark Edwards 😊


  3. Behind Closed Doors is an awesome read. I highly recommend it. I haven’t heard of the others on this list. You’ve given me some new authors to check out. Thanks! 🙂

    It is a wonderful list, and I wonder if you posted these in the past; most of them are already on my TBR list.


  5. Susie | Novel Visits says:

    Great list! I have really liked books by Rosamund Lupton and Liane Moriarty, to name just a few on your list. I listened to Behind Closed Doors on Audible and the reader was amazing. I highly recommend it!


  6. itsbooktalk says:

    I loved Into The Darkest Corner! Big Little Lies was also great. I didn’t like Behind Closed Doors. I’m also looking forward to The Mountain in My Shoe


  7. Annie says:

    Louise Beech ❤ I also need to read Angela Marsons!!!


  8. bornandread says:

    Liane Moriarty is fantastic – you HAVE to read Big, Little Lies, it’s so so good!!


  9. I can’t get enough of Thrillers either so amazing list. You must read Elizabeth Haynes, absolutely loved Darkest Corner, oh my and Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris, they are both amazing. Try to read one before end of year. I really didn’t enjoy Sister, I am not interested to read others. I have heard amazing things about Angela Marson and want to start that series before end of year.

    I read Rosamond Luptons Quality of Silence and I loved it. It was so unique and she has a beautiful voice. Definitely a thriller contender!


  11. I loved Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, it was fabulous.


  12. There are several interesting authors and books on here. BA Paris is definitely on my radar with Behind Closed Doors.

    I think you need to give up work & doing boring chores, then get you’ll get round to reading even more 🙂 No seriously reading does take time, one must choose carefully which book to read next. life is not forever…


  14. I’ve read most of these authors I highly recommend The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox and Liane Moriarty and you haven’t got any that I’d say ‘don’t bother’ I think you need a time making machine, I do too 😏


  15. I haven’t read many of these, but I adore Susanna Kearsley’s work – I first read “The Winter Sea” and loved it, but never got around to reading the sequel! I hope you enjoy these!


  16. carhicks says:

    There are some authors on here that I have read and some I am waiting to get into, some good choices here as well as some I will have to check out. If Mount TBR were to have a landslide, I would be in big trouble.


  17. My TBR is longer than my read list. I totally get what you’re talking about 😂


  18. nickimags says:

    Wonderful post. I absolutely loved Black-eyed Susans. I didn’t enjoy Sister by Rosamund Lupton, but that might be because it was an audiobook and sometimes it doesn’t work for me in that format.


  19. Ok. Actually all of them are fabulous!!!


  20. Highly recommend David Bell and Angie Marsons!


  21. Great post! I definitely recommend B.A. Paris and Liane Moriarty – both great authors 🙂
