Ten Authors I’d like to read more of | Top Ten Tuesday

If you’d have asked me 2-3 years ago who was my absolute favorite author I’d buy any books from, I’d say Cassandra Clare or Sarah J. Maas. However, my reading tastes changed a lot during the last two years and in 2019, both of these authors were featured in my post: “Authors I’m Giving Up On”.
