Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is 10 New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2015.
I didn’t read a whole lot of new-to-me authors this year, so this week’s list is more like a top eight.
Main Genre: Fantasy
Grace Draven is by far my favorite “new to me author” I read this year. If you like high fantasy and romance, then I definitely suggest you check-out one of her novels.
Main Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Rosamund Hodge is another great fantasy author. Her world is a little darker than most of the YA books I’ve read, which I love.
Main Genre: Sci-Fi Mystery
I’m very late hopping on the J.D. Robb train. I’m really enjoying the world she’s built for her In Death series. This is a great mystery series that incorporates light touches of Sci-Fi.
Main Genre: Comic
Recommended Book(s): Chew series
A really fantastic comic series. Chew is quirky and, at times, wonderfully disgusting. John Layman is a writer whose work I’ll be keeping an eye on.
Main Genre: Contemporary Romance
I devoured Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series in about a week. I’m not a huge fan of New Adult, but Scott’s books work well for me. Can’t wait for her new spin-off series that’s set to release next year.
Main Genre: Thriller
Recommended Book(s): Silence of the Lambs
I read Thomas Harris for the first time this year and was really surprised at how much I enjoyed his writing style. I can’t wait to read the rest of the Hannibal Lecter novels.
Main Genre: Fantasy YA
Recommended Book(s): Cinder
Another party I’m a little late to. So far, I’ve only read the one book by Meyer’s but I’m looking forward to finishing the Lunar Chronicles series now that it’s complete.
Main Genre: Comic
Recommended Book(s): Batman: The Long Halloween
Batman: The Long Halloween was the first graphic novel by Loeb that I read and I loved it. I can’t wait to read more by Loeb in the coming year.
