Discovering “New” Authors

Have you come across any great books lately? Books that you just can’t get out of your head?

I just read The Siren by Tiffany Reisz. I follow her on Twitter, and hadn’t read her books, so I asked her where to start. She told me to read The Siren and that my life would never be the same.

It took me about a week to read. If I could have sat in a corner and read all day, I would have devoured it in a day.

I don’t want to go into detail about this erotica book. Honestly, just read it. Anything I say will surely give away something. What I can tell you is that Reisz’s writing is amazing. Her characters were ones that I loved. Even one of the main characters in the book I somewhat despised, but his development was done so nicely that I thoroughly wanted to read more about him.

My favorite book that I have read in the past 12 months was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. That book was incredibly fast paced and I despised the characters so much that I simply couldn’t get enough of them. The Siren is entering into my top books of all time for the same reason – pacing and character development.

I hope my work can one day reach the level of this author. I follow her on Twitter, and suggest you do as well. More so, I encourage you to pick up The Siren (which is the first in her Original Sinners series).
