#AMonthofFaves: New to Me Author (and Narrator!) Discoveries

Today’s Month of Faves topic is all about new authors encountered this year. I’m going to highlight the authors and audiobook narrators whose work I will definitely be checking out again.

Authors We Love

Authors

1. Liara Tamani (book read: Calling My Name) — I just finished this yesterday. It’s Tamani’s debut and it’s exactly the kind of YA story I like best (realistic, slice of life, coming of age). Special shout-out to Sara Zarr for introducing me to the author’s book on Twitter.

Imagine how I’m going to feel after I actually see the movie next Monday. I love them so much ūüė≠. And I’m so glad I moved to LA because I can go to events like this.

Make some decisions for me! Also: books & bookish events

1. I already posted this on Twitter and Facebook, so I’m also posting here. But a few years ago, I did a 32 things to do before I turn 33 project, and I’m looking to do something similar for my 40th birthday. I am looking for suggestions of cool things to do by my 40th birthday or before my 40th year is up (this is still very much in the conception stage, obvs.)

I did wind up completing quite a few things on my 32 list, so I need to rebuild. Here are some things I’m already planning to do/considering doing:

  • Go see Hamilton
  • Go to Harry Potter world
  • Do one of those paint class things
  • Take a knife skills class
  • ride in a hot air balloon
  • go to a taping of Price Is Right
  • surfing lessons
  • go to Hawaii
  • finish reading the Bible
  • post a YouTube video
  • indoor skydiving

NOTE: I am not jumping off a bridge or out of a plane, so please do not suggest bungee jumping or skydiving. They are both an automatic no. Anything else will be seriously considered! So please post some suggestions in the comments.

I live in the L.A. area if that has any impact on what you might suggest.
