Last year, I reflected on the end of the year by seeing which authors I read the most in a year. Typically, If I read more than one book by the same author in one year, I really like their work. Other times, I wasn’t a huge fan of the first book I read, but still wanted to check out more from the author. For each author, I will discuss what books I read. Here are some of my most read authors this year:
- Kasie West (6 books)
For Kasie West, most of the books on my list we’re re-reads. I ran into a big of a reading slump this year. Kasie West’s book are always easy and fun to read, so I thought they would be the perfect books to get my reading on track. Three of West’s books that were new-to-me this year were Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss, Let it Snow (short story anthology), and Maybe This Time. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss, I did enjoy the other two works. Maybe This Time is actually one of my favorite Kasie West books now. My re-reads were The Fill-In Boyfriend, P.S. I Like You, and Love, Life, and the List, all of which are three of my favorites by West.
- Holly Black (2 books)
This year, I finished the Folk of the Air series by starting the year with The Wicked King and January and finishing the series with The Queen of Nothing in December. This is an overall satisfying series with The Wicked King ranked as my favorite book. This is a great series to pick up if you’re a fan of books with faeries.
- Sally Thorne (2 books)
I really enjoyed Sally Thorne’s first book The Hating Game, which is why I re-read it this year when I found myself in a reading slump. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy her second book 99 Percent Mine nearly as much as her first and consider it one of my most disappointing reads of the year. I could not connect to the story or characters in 99 Percent Mine compared to The Hating Game.
- Helen Hoang (2 books)
I first read The Kiss Quotient in January after hearing rave reviews online. Unfortunately, The Kiss Quotient was only an average read for me. Despite only an okay experience with my first Helen Hoang book, I chose to pick up her second book because the plot sounded more interesting to me. I’m glad that I did because I enjoyed The Bride Test significantly more than The Kiss Quotient and I am excited to pick up her next book which follows another character from these novels in the new year.
- Sandhya Menon (2 books)
I have had a hit-or-miss experience with Sandhya Menon’s books. I liked When Dimple Met Rishi, but did not like From Twinkle, With Love. There’s Something About Sweetie actually sounded the most interesting to me out of all of her books, so I was excited when I was approved on NetGalley for an ARC. There’s Something About Sweetie is definitely my favorite book by Sandhya Menon to date. I also enjoyed As Kismet Would Have It, a short story following Dimple and Rishi, that Menon released.
