Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This Week’s Topic: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014
1. Richelle Mead
I did not read Vampire Academy until March this year!! I then read the entire series in a month (including Bloodlines). Definitely my favourite new author.
2. Sarah J. Maas
The Throne of Glass series started gaining popularity with the release of Heir of Fire…so I figured, why not?
3. Jessica Shirvington
WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO READ THIS AUTHOR!? Disruption was amazing, as was Corruption. I’m now planning on reading everything but this person.
4. Marissa Meyer
I FINALLY read Cinder!! Now I just need to read the rest of them.
5. Gayle Foreman
With the movie of If I Stay coming out, I figured I’d read the book.
Definitely not my usual type of book, but I still really loved it.
6. Kylie Fornasier
Masquerade was just awesome, ok. Go read it. Now.
7. Sally Green
Half Bad was incredible. I can’t wait for Half Wild.
And, because I’m pedantic and always like to have 10, I’m going to finish this week with 3 new-to-me authors I wanted to read this year.*
8. James Dashner
Because The Maze Runner movie has come and gone and I still haven’t read these books!!
9. Markus Zusak
I’m in a similar situation with The Book Thief.
10. Laini Taylor
A Daughter of Smoke and Bone is sitting on my bookshelf, waiting for me.
*Note: Considering the fact that it is still December, I may still get to read these authors before the year is out.

I love The Lunar Chronicles. It’s a fabulous series for SO many reasons. My 12 yo daughter and I are going to see Marissa Meyer when she comes to Arizona in February. Can’t wait to meet her and get my hands on the newest book in the series!
I had a similar experience with Richelle Mead this year, but I spread out my VA and Bloodlines binge by a couple months 🙂
Also I read all the Lunar Chronicles this year, you should definitely try to catch up before Fairest comes out in January. Cress was definitely my favorite so you have a lot to look forward to!
