If you’ve read my Attention Book Lovers! post, you know I’m quite the bookworm. I mostly read teen fiction books, so I’ve compiled my favorite teen fiction authors for you all! In no particular order, here is my list of 5 must-read teen fiction authors!
1) Sarah J. Maas
The fifth book in her Throne of Glass Series, Empire of Storms, was released back in September, with a sixth promised in 2018. The series focuses on the life and journey of assassin Celaena Sardothien. I can’t give much more than that away unless I want to spoil the series for you, but I promise it’s worth reading! From Maas’s website:
Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Beautiful. Deadly. Destined for greatness.
In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, Celaena, an assassin, is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion.
The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass—and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.
Another of her series, Court of Thorns and Roses, has another book scheduled to be released May 2nd, and I literally can’t contain my excitement. I have already pre-ordered Court of Wings and Ruin, and I can’t wait until May. Here’s a summary of the first book from Maas’s website:
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it…or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
2) Laura Thalassa
I stumbled on the first book in the Bargainer series through my Kindle Unlimited subscription (try it for yourself free!), and I am so happy I did! She is easily one of my favorite authors, and has a ton of books out to keep me happy. In addition to the Bargainer series, she also has several others, but my favorites are the Fallen World, Unearthly, and Vanishing Girl series. Read more about them on Thalassa’s website here!
3) Victoria Aveyard
Aveyard released the next book in her Red Queen series on February 7th, and I finished it the same day. You will be hooked. I just read it and I’m ready for the next one! From Aveyard’s website:
This is a world divided by blood – red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.
4) Veronica Roth
Known for her Divergent series, Roth just released the first of a new series (Carve the Mark) on January 17th. I’m currently working on this one now, so I’ll have to keep you updated! But so far it has been wonderful! From Roth’s website:
Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power — something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.
Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuve, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive — no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive — or to destroy one another.
5) Morgan Rhodes
Crystal Storms was released back in December, the next installment of her Falling Kingdom series. I’m about to re-read this series because it was that good. From her website:
In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power–brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined.
