10 New Favorite Authors I Discovered in 2020

Hello everyone! Back in 2020, I manage to read a total of 65 books, and more than half of them (46 books, to be exact) are by authors whose books I’ve never read before. So today, I’m going to feature 10 new favorite authors that I discovered in 2020. This is honestly harder than it sounds since I read lots of great books last year (in fact, I think 2020 is my best reading year so far!), but I manage to narrow it down to 10 authors. Without further ado, here they are :

1. R.F. Kuang
Book(s) read : 3 (The Poppy War, The Dragon Republic, The Burning God)
Given that The Poppy War trilogy is my favorite series in 2020, I think she deserves the #1 spot in this list. I’ve never been more glad to pick up a book, since I learn so much about my own history and ancestry through this series. I’m definitely going to re-read TPW again this year!

In Fall, I planned to read these books :
1. The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang ✔️
2. Jade City by Fonda Lee ✔️
3. Jade War by Fonda Lee ❌
4. Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco ✔️
5. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong ✔️
6. Loveless by Alice Oseman ❌
7. The Burning God by R.F. Kuang ✔️

Considering I usually only read like, 2 books from my list, 5 out of 7 books is my best record so far!
