Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 New-to-Me Authors in 2018

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Top 10 New-to-Me Authors in 2018. I read a lot of great new authors last year, especially because I was taking part in a challenge to read more debut authors.  In addition to debut authors, who are of course new to everyone, however, I also tried to make a point to read a lot of authors who have been around for a while but I just hadn’t gotten to yet.  I read way more than ten of those as well, but below is a list of my favorites and what books of theirs I read.  If you’re fans of these authors, I’d love recs on which of their books I should try next!

    Courtney Summers and Sadie have stayed with my long after reading that book. Hands down one of the most impressive things I read last year, but the only reason I didn’t include it for this TTT is because I feel like I have been talking about it for ages and ages lol

    I need to read Jenn Bennett this year – I have Starry Eyes sitting on my shelf! I read one Diana Chamberlain book a few years ago, but that was it, I need to read The Dream Daughter!

    I really liked Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell (I also read I Found You and The Girls in the Garden, which were good but not OMG You have to read them good lol) And she wasn’t listed, but I saw you had a book cover by Diane Chamberlain in the cover photo and have to recommend The Secret Life Of CeeCee Wilkes. Excellent book.

    I typed a comment last night but my laptop shut down before I could post.

    I’m always thrilled to see another reader discovering a Jenn Bennett title, she’s one of my automatic purchase authors. I think Alex Approximately is still my favourite of her work so far so if you get a chance to read that one, I’d love to see your thoughts! ♡
