Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is ten new to me authors I read in 2021. We did a post for this topic for Blogmas which you can find here, so I’m going to share 10 new to me authors I read in 2021 that I won’t be reading again.
A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine
I just didn’t love this. I don’t plan to continue the series.
Axiom’s End by Lindsey Ellis
This had the potential to be right up my alley. But the second book was worse than the first and I don’t see myself reading more of Ellis’ books in the future.
The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave
I didn’t love how the story played out. This was a book club pick, so I have other mystery/thriller authors that I’ll continue to seek out instead in the future.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I genuinely didn’t like this book.
The Graces by Laure Eve
I couldn’t put this series down, but in a ‘staring at a car accident’ as you pass by kind of way.
Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson
Another book club pick that I didn’t love. The parents were all horrible.
Where the Forest Meets the Stars by Glendy Vanderah
One last book club choice that I didn’t care for. I wanted this to actually be about aliens, but it wasn’t.
So, I’ll never say never, but these are the authors I read for the first time in 2021 that I don’t forsee myself seeking out again in the future. What authors did you have on your list this week?
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
