Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish.Β This week’s theme is a Top Ten New-To-Me Favorite Authors I Read in 2015. Well, this year was filled with great reads and new amazing authors, so, I can’t wait to share the love! You can click on the book’s title to go to its Goodreads page πŸ™‚

1 β€’Β Patrick NessΒ 

I know, I need to read more of Patrick Ness’ novels, and it’s definitely on my 2016 TBR. I discovered this author through More Than This this year, and I fell in love with him.

2 β€’Β Robin Benway

Funny story: I actually read a Robin Benway’ novel a while ago, like, a few years ago, and I didn’t know. So this doesn’t count. I fell head over heels for Emmy & Oliver this year, it’s easily one of my favorite books this year!


3 β€’ Β Dahlia Adler

I got lucky enough to read an ARC of Just Visiting thanks to the sweetness of the author, and damn, I’m so glad I did! I really loved the writing style and the story about friendship and moving on, and I really want to read more books from this author.

4 β€’Β Robyn Schneider

I read The Beginning of Everything, and Extraordinary Means, and needless to say, I LOVED them. I really like the characters in those stories, they are sweet contemporary stories with relatable characters, humor, and, Ii don’t know, it’s a great recipe, so, I want MORE.

5 β€’Β Jennifer E. Smith

By now, you should know I really like contemporary, right? If you don’t, well, now you do. Sweet contemporary romances are my to-go-to whenever I feel down, and I found out that Jennifer E. Smith is perfect for that!

6 β€’ Catherine Doyle

This young and promising author gave us Vendetta, this year, a book I really loved. It’s a bit of mystery, of thriller, of romance, and it’s spilled with great characters and kept me guessing from page one. I can’t wait to read more from her.

7 β€’Β Tahereh Mafi

Okay, I’m cheating a little bit again, but since I read more from her this year, I can say that it counts, right?! I fell in love with Tahereh Mafi’s, writing style in her first novel, Shatter Me, and this year, my love just grew as I read the two other books in the trilogy. This is talent, it leaves me completely speechless.

8 β€’ Becky Albertalli

Becky Albertalli’s fantastic debut, Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens agenda, was received with LOTS of compliments and praise, both from the press and the blogging world. I’m one of those people who loved this book, and how refreshing it was. And Simon. I need more characters like Simon in my life!.


9 β€’ Stephanie PerkinsΒ 

Anna and the French Kiss is probably one of the most famous books out there, well, for the blogging world, I think, ahah. I only read this one this year, but I’m really glad I did. Flawed yet completely adorable characters… I loved it, and I need to read the other books in this series.

10 β€’Β Claudia Gray

A Thousand Pieces of You is really a treasure of imagination. In between worlds and time, I really loved how this story was conceived. This is a book that made me want to read more by this author, because, with an imagination like that, well, I want more.

Did you read any books by these authors? Did you enjoy those, or not? Tell me, what are YOUR new favorite authors this year?! Let’s talk about themΒ in comments!Β Β πŸ’¬

  1. Out of your list, I’ve actually only read Anna and the French Kiss and Patrick Ness’s newest book, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, but I have Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda on my TBR list for December! So excited that you gave it a great word. πŸ™‚

    Here‘s my list of favourite new-to-me authors!

  2. I read Claudia Grey this year too, but I wasn’t a big fan of A Thousand Pieces of You. I’m still debating whether I should read the sequel! Have you read it yet?
    So glad Patrick Ness made it on your list. He really is a master when it comes to words! I do hope you get around to reading the Chaos Walking trilogy by him; it’s magnificent, and my favorite trilogy of all-time. πŸ™‚

    1. I haven’t read it yet, so I can’t advice you to pick it up, or not, sadly 😦 but if you want, I’ll tell you all about it once I read it πŸ™‚
      The Chaos Walking trilogy is high on my priority list, I’m so glad to hear you loved it! I can’t wait to read it πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much for your comment! ❀

  3. This is a list with TONS of fantastic names on it. Robyn Schneider made my list, too. I hope to be seeing much more of her work! I really need to pick up a Patrick Ness book and a Robin Benway book–those are two authors I hear nothing but good things about. I absolutely love Tahereh Mafi and Stephanie Perkins. I can’t wait to see what those two authors have planned for us next. This is a fantastic list. I’m so glad you discovered so many incredible authors this year. Here’s to finding many more in 2016!!

    My TTT!

    1. Thank you so much!! I’m so glad you agree. Robyn Schneider really is a, coup de coeur, this year, and I can’t wait to read more of her work. Patrick Ness and Robyn Benway are FANTASTIC, I hope you’ll check them out soon!! πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much for stopping by!! ❀


  4. Patrick Ness is amazing and you must read A Monster Calls! At least before the movie is released! It’s amazing and compelling and emotional! And of course you must read the Chaos Walking trilogy. YOU MUST!
    I have A Thousand Pieces of You sitting on my shelf right now, getting ready to be read!

  5. Great list! You know how I feel about Robin Benway. SO MUCH LOVE.


    When I get through the pile of books currently sitting unread on my shelf, I think I’m going to read some Tahereh Mafi. I have heard endless praise of her series. I think my series scepticism has kept me away.

    1. I want to read all of her books, right now. I just fell in love with her, I can’t stop thinking about it!! :p
      Aw, you should! Some people say this isn’t a series for them, because the writing style is quite different from anything they’ve read before. It is, but I personally LOVE it, it’s poetic and vivid and the kind of writing that touches you. Well, it did for me. I hope you’ll have the same feelings! πŸ˜€
