This Week’s Topic: Top Ten New-To-Me Favourite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015
1. Rachael Craw
Guys, can you believe that I only read Spark THIS YEAR??
THIS YEAR, GUYS!!
2. Alexandra Bracken
And same with The Darkest Minds! Only this year? Seriously?
3. Derek Landy
Ahh, yes. If you’ve been following me for a while, you may have noticed that I read the entire Skulduggery Pleasant series this year. (And I talk about the experience here)
4. Ellie Marney
OH MY GOSH WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO READ EVERY BREATH???
Actually, I figured out why…it’s because NOBODY TOLD ME it was a Sherlock retelling.
You’re all fired.
5. Holly Black
Ok, not technically new to me this year…I tried reading Tithe last year, but I didn’t make it past the first couple of chapters. However, when Holly Black came to Aus, it was recommended to me that I try The Darkest Part of the Forest.
Which I did, and I loved it!
6. Laini Taylor
Daughter of Smoke and Bone was fabulous. I have no idea why I haven’t read the rest of the series yet…I own them all.
7. Jodi Meadows
Orphan Queen was FANTASTIC!! Seriously, absolutely loved it.
So, there’s only 7 authors on this list…there would have been more, except I specifically did not include authors who debuted this year.
Who was on your list?
