Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post giving our top ten on different topic. This is hosted by THE BROKE AND THE BOOKISH. This weeks topic is Top Ten New-To-Me Favorite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015. This was one I had to take my book list out for because I have a habit of sticking to authors I’ve read before. Here goes!
- Jodi Meadows – Is a goddess for her Newsoul Trilogy. Her books were filled with wonderful images and lots of twists and turns through the pages.
- Marie Lu – I read the Legend series toward the start of this year and I fell in love. I’m probably going to read them again soon now that I’m thinking about them.
- Marissa freaking Meyer – The Lunar Chronicles were amazing! The last, Winter, just finally came out. I put off reading her series for super long even though I’d heard it was great from all over. I’m glad I finally read them. I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next.
- Leigh Bardugo – The Greisha Trilogy was amazingly fantastical. She created a fantasy world with a wonderful heroine.
- Skylar Dorset – The Girl Who Never Was (which I just learned has another one after it and I am SO excited) was a new twist on the fairy worlds. I loved it!
- Cinda Williams Chima – The Seven Realms Series was one of Antonia’s suggestions. She had to push me for a while, but I was very thankful she did. This was a series full of excitement and craziness. I loved every page.
- Betsy Schow – Spelled was an impulse buy when I was at the book store recently. I loved it. It was filled with crazy plot twists and a wild adventure.
- Jessica Shirvington – This series was a library find. The series I read was good, I will be looking forward to seeing what else she will come out with.
- Phillippa Gregory – I read a trilogy of hers at the recommendation, and book lending, of my coworker. It was a series of three starting with Wideacre. They were fantastic and more of her books will be found on my TBR.
- Gillian Flynn – I read Dark Places this year and it was very good. I like the way that she writes, the darkness to it. It was an amazingly suspenseful and interesting read. I’ll one day manage to read Gone Girl.
So after lots of thought and comparing the books I’ve read this year, these are the ten I’ve come up with. There’s still a month left of 2015, maybe you can add one or two to your book list!
Keep on reading lovelys, Amanda.
