I am a pretty avid reader which you can probably tell by my monthly goals. I also post book recommendations pretty frequently. I get asked a lot who my favorite authors to binge read are and I thought I would share the 10 best!
10 Authors To Binge
Colleen Hoover: I have been a fan of Colleen Hoover since someone recommended Slammed. While that one was probably my least favorite of her books I have loved them all. A few of my favorites are All Your Perfects, November 9, Ugly Love, Reminders Of Him, and It Ends With Us.
Taylor Jenkins Reid: I need to preface this by saying I do not LOVE Daisy Jones or Evelyn Hugo. I liked Malibu Rising, and I thought Carrie Soto is Back was OK but kind of problematic. I love her first 4 books so much more. I read After I do and Forever Interrupted on my honeymoon and just fell in love with her writing. One True Loves and Maybe In Another Life are two of my very favorite books. Something really interesting about each of these books is they are written to tell you two stories at the same time.
Renee Carlino: I have not read all of Renee Carlino’s books but the ones I have read are WONDERFUL! She really writes characters that are flawed so well and I will say most of the books end with me crying. My favorites are: Wish You Were Here, The Last Post, Swear On This Life, and Before We Were Strangers.
Jasmine Guillory: I went into a deep Jasmine Guillory dive earlier this year. I started with The Wedding Date and just went through them all! You don’t have to read them in a particular order but they do have overlapping characters even though each book focuses on a different couple. I hope that makes sense 🙂 I still think The Wedding Date is my favorite but Party Of Two is a close second.
Christina Lauren: Fun fact Christina Lauren is actually 2 different women who write together. Don’t ask me how long it took me to realize that. Anyways, Christina Lauren writes TONS of great books and a few of my favorites are My Favorite Half Night Stand, The Unhoneymooners, Roomies, and Love and Other Words.
Bethany Chase: I am so glad I randomly stumbled upon The One That Got Away by Bethany Chase which remains one of my favorite books. She has written two others I really enjoyed as well Results May Vary and One Night At The Lake.
Meghan Quinn: I am honestly trying to read all of Meghan Quinn’s books but she has A TON! So far the best I’ve read were A Not So Meet Cute, So Not Meant To Be, Royally Not Ready, and The Duets (2 sets of 2 books that all go together). They are all super spicy and funny which I love!
Meagan Brandy: Say You Swear was one of my favorite books of this year and it’s what made me fall in love with her writing. I then read Dirty Curve and the Fumbled Futures 3 book series. I loved all of them! Also super spicy!
Lucy Score: The only book of hers I have read is Things We Never Got Over. However, I put her on this list because pretty much all of her books that been recommended to me and I do plan to read them all.
Tessa Bailey: Oh you guys she was one of the most recommended authors to me! I first read It Happened One Summer, then I read Hook Line and Sinker and LOVED both! I have a few of her other books on my kindle ready to read. Lots of spice and I really love her writing!
If you are looking for romance, spice, and real characters you will find them with these bingeable authors!
Who are your favorite authors to binge?
This post was written in 2020 but has been updated for 2022.
I’ve never read any of these authors! I think I read a different type of book, but I like Jim Butcher, Rachel Caine, and Sherrlyn Kenyon to name a few. And of course, JK Rowling since I’m a big Harry Potter fan.
I feel so bad for not knowing any of these amazing authors, i need to read more I guess…
That’s cool to know about Christina Lauren- what a fun job to write together! I’ll have to check out some of these books girl Great recs!
I’ve read books by most of these authors, but the only one I’ve really come to enjoy is Taylor Jenkins Reid… and for the two books you didn’t care for haha! I wish I enjoyed Christina Lauren or Jasmine Guillory as much as it seems everyone else does, but I haven’t come across any books that have stood out to me… yet 😉
I am not familiar with any of those authors. I just finished Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels (a series of four books) and they were incredible. The books follow the lives of two Italian girls and their lifelong friendship.
Wow I am definitely missing out on these great books and I never heard about these authors. I will be checking them out!:)
I am definitely missing out on these great books and I never heard about these authors. I will be checking them out!:)
Thank you for introducing these amazing authors. I think I never read anything they published. I will definitely look to put some of them on my reading list.
What a great group of authors! Even though she seems to be on everyone’s favorites list, I’ve never read a Taylor Jenkins Reid. I need to fix that soon!!
Some of my favorites include Barbara Kingsolver and Jesmyn Ward.
I need to check some of those authors! I am more into classic literature and nothing will beat Charlotte Bronte to me 🙂
I had no clue that Christina Lauren was two different authors– that’s pretty neat! I’ve read several of these (Reid, Guillory, Lauren, Hoover) but will definitely have to look into the others, it sounds like we have very similar taste in authors!
This is a topic that’s close to my heart… Thank you! Exactly where are your contact details though?
I haven’t heard of any of these authors unfortunately! It seems I am seriously missing out. I think Christina Lauren sounds really cool – it’s so cool that two women can write together like that. I’m curious about their writing style!
