As part of Top Five Wednesday’s summer hiatus, I’ve been revisiting old T5W topics. Today’s post is inspired by the August 2016 topic, “Authors You Are Waiting on Another Book From.” I did a similar T5w post last year (Authors I Need More From): funnily enough, all of the authors in that post have books coming out in 2019 and 2020! Today’s topic more so focuses on authors who either haven’t announced a new book or have given very minimal information regarding their next release. As much as I am excited by this topic, I admit that it was a little difficult for me to write, considering that many of my favorite authors have projects in the works or have new books coming out over the next two years.
Morgan Matson – For the past few years, there have been two years between Morgan Matson’s books. Since Save the Date came out in 2018, she is expected to have her sixth book come out in 2020. To put it simply, Morgan Matson is one of my go-to and absolute favorite YA contemporary authors because of her incredible writing and unique stories. Her synopses always leave me hook, so I’m excited to see what her next book will have in store.
Jenny Han – Jenny Han is very much involved in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Netflix adaptations and has been doing so much press for her very much beloved series. I would really love another book with a somewhat Lara Jean-centric character, aka a book with all the baking and cute boys.
Kevin Kwan – Considering how much Crazy Rich Asians has taken over our reading lives in 2018 and 2019 (and basically all the years before then), I would to have another book or series from him (aka a spin-off Crazy Rich Asians possibly following Astrid or one of the couples’ children??).
Jandy Nelson – Jandy Nelson has confirmed on Twitter that she is working on some sort of project. As one of my favorite The Fault In Our Stars sayings goes, I would honestly read her grocery list. I’ll Give You the Sun was that much of a beautiful read that it is worth the wait for another Jandy Nelson book.
Lauren Graham – While I wasn’t the biggest fan of Lauren Graham’s Someday Maybe, I absolutely loved her collection of personal essays, Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls. This is my absolute favorite “celebrity” book and I really can’t wait her to reveal her next writing project.
