Announcing a New Blog Series | Author Spotlight

I’m excited to announce a new project in which I spotlight different authors, read their entire backlist of books, and then report back here. I’ll do a mini review of each book and share my feelings on that authors work as a whole. I think it’ll be both fun and an excellent resource for someone looking to see if an author is for them or not and to also be able to find that information all in one place. Each author I’ve considered for this series ended up on my list for different reasons. Some I’ve loved and want to see if the elements that made me love them is reflected in all their books- if so my favorite authors list will grow and that’s always amazing. Some I’ve read a single book and didn’t care for it yet I seem to be of the unpopular opinion and I want to read their other books to see if my mind can be changed. Others I for some reason have been collecting or drawn to their books even though I’ve never actually read one and now own nearly their whole bibliography and want to enter them into this little experiment to see if my instincts were right. And I’m hoping that you, my readers, will come along on this journey with me! A few authors I plan to spotlight include:

  • Mary H.K. Choi
  • Layne Fargo
  • Katie Henry
  • Silvia Moreno-Garcia
  • Rebecca Roanhorse
  • David Arnold

This is definitely not a complete list or the order I will be doing this series in- the author I start with may not even be on this list but I’m definitely going to include them at some point throughout the time I’m writing this series. I hope this is something that sounds like a fun idea to you- I am simply looking forward to sharing more opinion-type posts here on my blog. I love doing book reviews and blog tours- I started this blog with that in mind- but I would like to branch out and test the waters, so to speak. I’ve been bouncing some other series ideas around in my brain for a while, too, and I’d like to share some of those here and get some feedback if possible. Here is a small list of other concepts I’ve been considering:

  • I Read 3 | (enter what thing I’ve read 3 of here)
  • Reading ‘Best Of’ lists from various places and seeing if they’re actually the ‘best’
  • Reading books blurbed by my favorite authors

These are just a few of the ideas I’ve had that I thought could be fun, most of them inspired by other people in the book community who I would definitely credit if and when these series ever came to fruition. Please let me know if you think anything I’ve spoken about here today is something you’d read and whether you think others would too! Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll be back soon (allegedly) with more content- yay!

  1. This sounds like a fun adventure. I do that with certain authors but I don’t do it in a single post. I read a book by an author and then, if I liked that author, I might read everything that author has written and write reviews as I read them. I’m curious to see what authors you pick. This will be interesting. Have fun with it.
