Today’s Theme: Ten New-To-Me Favorite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015
I read so many great books this year. Here are 10 of my favorite new-to-me authors:
Becky Albertalli – Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – After reading Simon, I am anxiously awaiting anything else Albertalli decides to publish.
Sarah J. Maas – Throne of Glass and ACOTAR – I’m still not caught up in the Throne of Glass series, but mostly because I want to savor it. I fell in love with Maas’ fantasy writing this year.
Stephanie Perkins – Anna and the French Kiss trilogy – Because Étienne in Paris, Cricket in San Francisco, and Josh in New York…
Rainbow Rowell – Fangirl and Carry On – I don’t think I will ever get over how much I loved Carry On. I’m sensing many more Rowell books in my future.
Rachel Aaron/Rachel Bach – Nice Dragons Finish Last and the Paradox trilogy (Adult) – So far I’ve loved both her adult and her young adult work. Here’s hoping for more impending releases!
Laura Kaye – Hearts in Darkness and the Hard Ink series – I will forever be indebted to Romance Novels for the Beach for convincing me to try to Laura Kaye’s work.
Meljean Brook – Iron Seas series – Brook is my favorite Steampunk author, and I can’t wait for the Blacksmith’s story!
Georgette Heyer – Venetia and Faro’s Daughter – I was REALLY late to the Georgette Heyer party, but I’m really glad I found another author to fill my Jane Austen cravings.
Jeaniene Frost – The Night Huntress and Night Prince series’ – I read a whopping 14 books by Frost this year, and I can’t wait for The Sweetest Burn to come out next March.
Dianne Duvall – Immortal Guardians series – Duvall became one of my go to authors this year, especially when I’m in the mood for characters that are both kick ass and kind-hearted.
