Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013Confession: I am totally behind in reading debut authors. I had planned to read all debut authors all the time in Dec. but I just don't see it happening. I will try to get to my 12 author minimum though. So here are the top 5 debut authors I read, and the top 5 authors that were new to me this year. Not their debut year, but just new to me.
Top Debut Authors:
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. I enjoyed this book. I look forward to the next book in the series.
My Life After Now. This book was a bit predictable, however, I thought it was a very important book.Kasie West
Pivot Point is technically her debut book this year, but I read The Distance Between Us. I thought it was a promising debut for contemporary. I need to read Pivot Point though.
The Art of Wishing. I thought this was a really clever book. I look forward to the next one in the series.
I've made absolutely no secret about the fact that Eleanor & Park was my favorite book in 2013. I still have some books to read, but it will be hard to top it. Then I read Fangirl. Wow. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next in YA.
Top Authors New to Me:
I read The Darkest Minds a little late in the game. I thought it was awesome, and I really need to read the next one in the series. It's sitting on my shelf just waiting for me.
I can't believe I'm admitting to never having read a Cassandra Clare book. I am so late to the game on this one. But I read two of them! I need to catch up on the series as a whole.
Another very prolific author that I never got around to reading until this year. I need to go back and read her past series, but I am kind of loving the White Rabbit Chronicles series.
I never got around to reading In Honor or Moonglass, but I really enjoyed Golden, which I did get around to this year. I will read In Honor at some point in time.
I read the first two book in her The Innocents series. It's good soapy fun. A true guilty pleasure.
