Fall is a busy time in the publishing world, with buzz-worthy books coming out every week. If you’re wondering what you should read next, why not start with a book that your favorite author is recommending? From writers of edge-of-your-seat thrill riders and heart-wrenching historical fiction, these are the authors that authors are reading. What better recommendation could we possibly ask for?
Mary Kubica, whose latest thriller, When the Lights Go Out is thrilling readers and taking the best-sellers charts by storm, is recommending I Know You Know by Gilly MacMillan, a story about two shocking murders that happen twenty years apart but may be connected. Kubica calls MacMillan, “A master of the written word,” and we couldn’t agree more.
“A fiendishly efficient, gorgeously written, nasty little thrill ride of a psychological thriller. I couldn’t put it down, and it’s entirely possible that I’ll never sleep again. A true tour-de-force of a debut novel.”
Graeme Simsion, whose third book in the best selling Don Tillman series, The Rosie Result, will be out in early 2019, is recommending The Tattooist of Auschwitz, a harrowing yet hopeful tale of survival based on a true story. He says:
“I find it hard to imagine anyone who would not be drawn in, confronted and moved. I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone, whether they’d read a hundred Holocaust stories or none.”
Pam Jenoff, who knows a thing or two about historical fiction, is recommending Ellen Keith’s new release, The Dutch Wife, calling it an “original and unforgettable tale.” The story of three people that share a wartime connection across miles and years, is a riveting addition to your to-be-read pile.
