Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
The topic for this week is: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014
Rebecca Lim (The Astrologer’s Daughter) – Read this book and loved it. The writing is beautiful and I loved the quintessential Aussieness of it with the realistic and heartbreaking story of loss and finding oneself.
Meg Wolitzer (Belzhar) – Belzhar was one of those books which kept me thinking for days. It’s just.. lovely.
KA Tucker (Five Ways to Fall) – One of my favourite New Adult contemporary romance reads. A sexy yet fun read with moments of emotional turmoil.
Laurie Halse Anderson (The Impossible Knife of Memory) – I read this book in January and it was.. powerful. It’s heartbreakingly beautiful and soulcrushing at the same time.
E Lockhart (We Were Liars) – I’m so glad I have read E Lockhart. I loved We Were Liars. And the other day I got a copy of her newest book (The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks) which I’m beyond excited to delve into!
Marie Rutkoski (The Winner’s Curse) – Best start to a dystopian trilogy I’ve read in the longest time. It’s amazing and I’m a little in love. Still. Months later after reading it. I can’t wait to read the sequel!
Erin Lange (Dead Ends) – Two kids who are practically opposites each teaching the other important life lessons. It’s brilliant.
Rachael Craw (Spark) – IF you haven’t read Spark yet – what are you waiting for? It’s a great debut novel for what promises to be a great trilogy. Altered genetics and DNA with kick-arse warrior women and predestined destinies. Can’t wait for Stray!
Leslye Walton (The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender) – This is magical realism at its finest. This book wasn’t what I expected but it was as strange and beautiful as its title. Just.. wow. And the cover is gorgeous too!
Abbi Glines – I had not read an Abbi Glines book before this year. But since June I’ve read 12. Her books are slightly addictive and the perfect lazy day afternoon romantic read.
Which have been your favourite new to you authors this year? Any we have in common? Are there any new-to-you authors you think I’d enjoy? Feel free to leave me a comment. Hope you all have a very happy Tuesday 😀
