Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as Books and a Beat‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
So today’s topic is: Authors across the genres!
So there’s a bunch of authors out there that write in more than just one genre, which is great because that usually just means more books to read by our beloved authors.
A few of my favourite authors write in more than one genre such as:
Lisa Kleypas – Is one of my most favourite-est historical romance authors, and she also writes tons of contemporary romance.
J.K. Rowling – You’ve got Harry Potter and than you’ve got Robert Galbraith
Though I have to make a confession: the weird thing is, I haven’t actually read any of their books outside the first genre that I started with them. I mean, I adore V.E. Schwab’s writing but I can’t seem to get into her YA books. And same-sy with Lisa Klepyas. Not sure why, but maybe one day I’ll get into those!
I definitely do enjoy the many romance authors that write a variety of romance genres – Kristen Callihan writes one of my favourite historical/paranormal romance series (The Darkest London series!) but also writes lovely NA romances. And Elle Kennedy writes NA, sports romance and suspense! And despite not having read Kleypas’ contemporary books, I like knowing I have the options there, haha.
I found that there’s often many authors that write YA and (adult) romance like Sophia Jordan and Sherry Thomas.
I also do love when authors have pen names for their different genre’d books because it makes it’s pretty easy to distinguish what genre you’re getting when you pick up that book. Like Nora Roberts/ J.D Robb!
Anyway, the point of this post was I’m just wondering, do you guys follow authors across genres?
I feel like I want too (even though I’ve done kind of a bad job at it), but I really do love that some of my favourite authors are cross-genre writers because it give me the opportunity to expand my reading!
Do you have a favourite cross-genre author?
