Recommend An… Author Similar to One I Love (Tamora Pierce)

15 Oct

Chances are if I love an author I will probably love similar authors as well. But an author I super love is Tamora Pierce. I’ve been reading Ms. Pierce since I was 11. That is 16 years of reading and loving her books. Since she has been putting out great books my entire life it is super easy to find other authors similar to her now. Here are some of my favorites, complete with approval from the great lady herself.

Kristin Cashore

Author of Graceling, Fire and Bitterblue.

Her books all take place in a very Tamora Pierce like world. A world where magic is real, kingdoms exist, and there are really strong heroines.

Tamora Pierce’s Goodreads rating: 5 stars for Graceling and Fire

Jane Yolen

Author of Sister Light, Sister Dark, White Jenna and The One-Armed Queen.

The Great Alta books are a great series that is a little bit more grown up than Tamora Pierce’s books, but totally great reads. The bond between the women in these books is amazing and the world building is so in-depth. Finding them can sometimes prove a little difficult. Even the ginormous library system I work for doesn’t appear to have any copies of the three books. They can be found for really cheap on Amazon though and I highly recommend them.

Tamora Pierce’s Goodreads rating: 5 stars for Sister Light, Sister Dark, 4 stars for White Jenna and The One Armed Queen

Sherwood Smith

Author of Crown Duel.

Aside from the fact that this author has an awesome first name, her books are pretty cool as well. She has written a lot of books, but unfortunately I’ve only read Crown Duel. It is a great Tamora Pierce like book. Lots of action and fierce heroine awesomeness.

Tamora Pierce’s Goodreads rating: 4 stars

Honorable Mentions: Shannon Hale, Robin McKinley, and Patricia Wrede.
