Top Ten Tuesday: New to Me Authors This Year

One thing I love about looking back at the year's reading experience, is what new authors did I discover? New to me authors that is. Some of them you might be thinking... what took you so long? Yeah, well... I'm trying!!!

Here's a few authors I discovered this year:

1. Kate Morton: We read her book, The Forgotten Garden, for book club and I'm anxious to find more of hers.

2. Rene Denfeld: a review book that I sort of accidentally ended up reading and it turned out to be one of the most unique books of the year.

3. Daniel Coleman: I talked to him at a local author event and was fascinated by the fact that he's a firefighter that writes fairy tale retellings on the side. I was blown away by how much I enjoyed his book about the Jabberwocky.

4. Lisa Jensen: Lovely retelling of Peter Pan from Hook's point of view. I will be keeping her name in my sights.

5. Heather Young: She approached me to read her book. I was glad I did it!

6. Kiera Cass: popular author of a popular series that I finally jumped into this year.

7. Sarah M. Eden: another popular local author who writes fun historical romance. I need to read more!

8. Cristin Terrill: she wrote a book I hadn't heard of until I read it, All Our Yesterdays, and I loved it!

9. Claudia Gray: I was asked to be part of blog tour for her and her new book, A Thousand Pieces of You, and I loved it! :)

10. Luanne Rice: I think she's written many books that have not been on my radar at all, but after reading a little book called The Letters this year, I might be paying more attention.

What new (to you) authors did you discover this year? Link up over at the Broke and the Bookish!


  1. I started listening to the audio version of Morton's novel, The Secret Keeper, at the end of Summer and was enjoying it, but it was so long and had holds so I sent it back to the library. One of my favorite readers, Jayne Entwhistle, was the narrator, so I need to get it again at some point.

  2. I'm not familiar most of these authors so I'll have to look into them. Have a nice week. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  3. I'm read a couple of Sara M. Eden's books. I really liked one of them and the other was okay. I'm not sure I'm going to read any others yet.

  4. I have The Forgotten Garden in my audio TBR (TBL??). I'll have to check out the other authors on your list!

  5. Long time follower, but this is my first time commenting and I just wanted to say that I love your blog. I haven’t heard of most of these authors, but they sound interesting and I will have to check them out.

  6. Rice is one I've seen a few times and thought about :) One day I'll get there hopefully :)
