Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. 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 🙂
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 • 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 • 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 • 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 • 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 • 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 • 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 • 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!.
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 • 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.
