  • Top Ten Tuesday: New to Me Authors of 2016

    top ten tuesday

    This Top Ten Tuesday is about the new to me authors of 2016. Since 2016 isn’t over yet, and I have, what I’ve felt like, has barely read, I am sticking to a few ‘new to me’ authors of 2016.

    1. Ryan Graudin— I recently read Graudin’sย The Walled City. While a review is coming up soon for this novel, I can’t say I was disappointed nor completely thrilled with his writing. Would I try something else by him again? Probably. More to come on this author!

    2. Robert Galbraith— Does J.K. Rowling’s pseudonym count as being a “new” author? I’m going to say it counts since it is a whole new genre for her, and she put it under another name for a different reason! I really enjoy these “who-dunnit” series. I really am looking forward to some more novels in this un-series.

    3. Leigh Bardugo–I was so enthralled with this whole story. I cannot wait to read the sequel that is upstairs in my room. Chapters messed up an order I had placed a while back and they ended up giving me a $20 free credit, and free shipping to store (since I work practically next door to one) meant I got this sequel for free!

    4. V.E. Schwab— I actually really enjoyed this different world novel, and cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel. I was really happy I picked this book up, and now I know why there is so much talk about Schwab’s books! This one is a must read.

    5. E.K. Johnston–I really enjoyed the re-telling of this novel. I enjoyed it so much, I’ve been asking for some more of this author’s books for Christmas! I just hope their other novels live up to the re-telling of A Thousand Nights.

    That is my ‘new to me’ edition for 2016 (so far!) What are you ‘new to you’ authors you would recommend? I’d love to know!

    What do you think?

    Leigh Bardugo is my favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚ I also read my first Victoria Schwab book (This Savage Song), which I realLy enjoyed as well. E.K. Johnston’s retelling was super interesting, especially since the main character’s name was kept a secret. I haven’t read any other books by her though.

    • Kayla says:

      I just recently read them all, and now I just want to go out and get everything by them all! I feel as though I’m in a bit of a slump since reading them all since they are all so good!

  • Great list! I really want to pick up Ryan Graudin’s books someday, because I’ve heard pretty good things. I would totally recommend Heidi Heilig, Tara Sim and Rachel Caine, since they’ve written some of my favorite fantasy reads this year (:
    Here is my TTT post!

    I’ve been wanting to read books by all these authors on your list! I probably won’t be able to fit these in by the end of the year, unfortunately. ๐Ÿ™

    Check out my TTT post!

      The end of the year is coming up soooo quickly! You can always check them out at the start of next year and let me know what you think! I’d love to know ๐Ÿ™‚
