If you've read here very long, you probably know that I love to read. About the only time I get to do it these days is at bedtime, but I try and get through a book a month if I'm able (my pace will likely slow considerably here soon). Well, I have certain authors who I have followed for years and read everything they write that I can get my hands on, so I thought I'd share a list of those authors who have new books coming out soon. All of these typically write great beach read type of books, so the timing is perfect to pre-order these, with the exception of the last one I'm listing which you can snag now. I've linked all of them below via Amazon affiliate links.
Mary Kay Andrews has such a fun, witty style of writing that I almost always find myself laughing out lour reading her books like a crazy lady. I'll admit, while I liked her last release, it wasn't my favorite game of hers so I am hoping this will be more reminiscent of all her other books that I adore.
The book I'm reading right now is a Dottie Frank book and I could not love it any more. I'm currently reading The Last Original Wife and am just about finished with it, so I can't wait for this one to release soon. Much of her writing takes place in the Lowcountry, which is like our adopted home as often as we can get there, so when we're not there, I love reading books that take place there.
Speaking of the Lowcountry, this book is a given for my summer reading list. I generally like Mary Alice Monroe books a lot and the location of this one and the cover alone would sell me!
Karen White is probably my favorite of all of these authors. I first found her books probably right or ten years ago and have read every single one. I'm so impatient waiting for her new books to come out because I just love her writing style that much. She's also announced that there will be a fifth book in her Charleston series coming out in January so I can't wait to snag that one!
I have a love/hate relationship with almost every single Emily Giffin book I've read. She draws readers in so well with her stories and writing, butI'm generally frustrated with the decisions her main characters make in the end. I guess what frustrates me is that so often, the way she will wrap up a story is very much the way someone would do it in "real life" and I'm very much an escapist reader. I like things tied up all nice and tidy at the end with most of what I read.
If anyone has any favorite authors or books that you really love and wouldn't mind sharing, please let me know, I'm always looking for a great new read!
