Top Ten New-To-Us Authors We Read For The First Time In 2016
Jeff Vandermeer! He wrote the Area X trilogy. I've only read the first two (I really need to go back and finish!) but the prose is stunning. Very different from what I would normally expect from sci-fi. It's beautiful and ethereal and a little dense but definitely worth it.
Lyndsay Faye: I LOVED Jane Steele! The writing style was amazing and I can't wait to read more from this author!
Garth Nix: I cannot believe that it took me this long to finally pick up one of Garth Nix's books, but Sabriel was SO GOOD! I'm definitely continuing this series in 2017!
Jeff Zentner: His debut novel, The Serpent King, just really blew me away. One of those feelings like "this could be a potential ALL TIME fave author" if all his books do this to me.
Sarah Fine: I read The Imposter Queen this year and it was definitely one of my favorite fantasy books of this year! I can't wait to go through her backlist.
Claire Legrand: GUYS you must read Some Kind of Happiness. I rarely read MG books but this book made her one of my fave new-to-me authors of this year!
Steven Rowley: I read Lily and the Octopus this year and... It was an incredible experience. I reviewed it on the blog this summer.
Kelly Bowen: I read Duke of My Heart on a whim earlier this year when I was trying to be better about getting into reading again. I have been leery with trying new historical romance authors because I have been put off by so many, but I actually quite enjoyed it. So I read the second one, and like that too. Now I have got the third one on my radar...
What are your favorite authors this year?
Oh man, I've been meaning to read Garth Nix's and Claire Legrand's books for ages now! Maybe they can be my new-to-me authors for 2017 :)ReplyDelete
Here are my new-to-me authors for 2016.
Jane Steele looks interesting. Not enough hours in the day!;)ReplyDelete
Claire Legrand made my list too, Jamie! I LOVED Some Kind of Happiness and can't wait to read more from her. I've also been meaning to read Garth Nix and Sarah Fine for ages now, so I hope to get to at least one of their books in 2017.ReplyDelete

Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
Hmm, of all those authors I've only read one (Claire Legrand, and I DNFed her YA book Winterspell, but not that I know she mostly writes MG I will give her another chance). I do have The Serpent King on my actual physical TBR, and Garth Nix is an author I need to get to!ReplyDelete
Just linked my post in! I have Lyndsay Faye on my list too.ReplyDelete
Awesome picks! I put The Serpent King on my list as well :)ReplyDelete
I discovered Garth Nix last year with Newt's Emerald, but I really need to read the Sabriel series.ReplyDelete
Sabriel is AWESOME. I love that book. And the rest of that series too!ReplyDelete
I checked the original TTT post and all the dates from November 6 are wrong. :/ But I still love the topics! Keep it up!ReplyDelete
Oops, never mind! I was looking at the November dates! Sorry about that mistake!ReplyDelete
Ooh, you guys discovered some good authors this year! I haven't read all of them, but I do love Garth Nix!ReplyDelete
This is such a cool idea, just did my first Top Ten Tuesday!!!ReplyDelete
Here it is :)
I'm also gonna finish up Sabriel in 2017!ReplyDelete
Cool topic idea, it was fun reflecting on all the authors I read for the first time this year!ReplyDelete
Oh, I read Garth Nix for the first time this year too! It won't be the last. :DReplyDelete
