Blogmas Day Eighteen: New to Me Authors 2021

Hello, bookworms! The last few years we’ve shared authors that we’ve read for the first time in that year and we’ve really enjoyed that. It’s fun to look back and see which authors we loved that were brand new to us this past year. So, this year we will be doing it again. Some of these are debut novels, but we’re going to be making a whole different post for 2021 debut authors, so if there are debut novels on here, they’re backlist titles.
