There is no shortage of incredible, talented, amazing writers on Wattpad. That much is obvious when you look at the 40 million stories, billions of minutes spent on the site, and endless stream of Wattpad originate stories hitting the bookshelves. We’ve already seen Ali Novak, AV Geiger and Lindsey Summers in our local book shops, and this fall will bring another name to those ranks.
Isabelle Ronin’s spectacularly popular Chasing Red novel, aquired by Sourcebooks, will be released September 5, and is already generating buzz with some of the biggest book blogs in the world. The latest of which is the reader guru site Goodreads, which has placed Ronin’s debut on their list of 21 Books for Fall.
Sitting in the romance section along side uber author Colleen Hoover, Ronin joins a list of authors which include John Green, Andy Weir, and Adam Silvera. Goodreads is the site many readers turn to for book recommendations and insight, so a feature on this particular forum, on a list such as this, solidifies the excitement that has been buzzing around this release since its acquisition was announced earlier this year. Chasing Red is the first book of a duology, with the second book, Always Red, slated for a TBA release.
Check out the blurb:
He had everything—wealth, adoration, a brilliant future. Until one chance encounter changed everything. The moment Caleb Lockhart spotted the mysterious woman in her siren red dress, he couldn’t tear his eyes away. For the first time in his life, he wanted something. Something he knew he could never have.
The unforgettable stranger he dubs RED.
Goodreads ensures its readers that the list only includes the best of the best, and that books featured have hit a 4.0+ rating with their site. It is divided by genre, to help newbies find exactly what they are looking for, and all these titles sound riveting.
Major congrats to Isabelle for finding her well deserved place on this coveted list! Can’t wait for the next one to be the NYT bestseller list!
