Top Ten New To Me Authors 2016
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list that members at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone join as you please. This week’s topic is: Top Ten New To Me Authors That I’ve Read in 2016
When I saw the topic for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, I got excited for a couple of reasons.
1. I love finding out new authors.
2. I knew that I read quite a few new authors this year.
However, I didn’t realise just how many new to me authors that I had read. It came down to 48 – and that is
It came down to 48 – and that is a hell of a lot and made this week really hard to narrow it down to 10. But I did it, however, I had to break it up. There are no #LoveOZYA authors on this list simply because I want to do a different post for this. Anyway here are the top ten new to me authors that I read this year, in no particular order. Side note, these are new to me – they might have been published for years, but I have only read them this year.
Kiersten White: I have wanted to read Kiersten White’s books for a while now, but I am glad that I picked up And I Darken. I loved it, it’s what I love. I am so excited for Now I Rise, plus I am going to have to pick up some of her other books.
Jennifer Jenkins: I hadn’t heard of this author until a couple of months ago. but as soon as I finished Nameless, I had to read Clanless.
Heidi Heilig: The Girl from Everywhere is one of my favourite books of the year. I adored it and I need book 2 – like now.
Leigh Bardugo: Six of Crows was one of those books that I knew I would love before I even read it. And that was totally true. I love Leigh Bardugo’s writing and beautiful setting.
Courtney Summers: I read 3 Courtney Summer’s books each year and loved them all. They are very hard to read and they will break your heart – but done so well.
Ruta Sepetys: Salt to the Sea has to be my favourite book this year – it killed me. I cannot wait to read more of her books. Which should I read next?
Lauren James: I cannot wait to see what else comes from Lauren James because I am 2 books down and loving it.
Danielle Rollins: I wasn’t in love with Burning, however as time goes on, I want to find out more.
Trish Dollar: The Devil You Know took me on a journey and I wanted to read more from Trish Dollar. What do you think I should read next?
And that is it for this week’s TTT. Who are some of your ‘new to me’ authors? Do we share any of the same? Do you recommend me any? Let’s Chat.
