 Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014

This one is hard because I got way behind on my reading this past year.  I read less then half of what I read in 2013,  and I'm blaming the baby.  Here are the new to me authors that I did read.

Love, Love, Loved this book.  The picture is after I read the book and totally fan-girled him at ALA last summer.  Not only is the book amazing, but he's pretty great too.

I was unsure about reading this book at first, but it turned out to be so much better than I expected.  I thought it was engaging and thoughtful.

I don't read much books written in verse, but I should probably read more of them, because those that I have read are beautiful.  This one is no exception.

Took me FOREVER to read this book.  I really felt like I was one of the only people in America who hadn't read it.  It was pretty amazing.

Another author I am ashamed I hadn't read before this year.  I've been meaning to read Anna Dressed in Blood for forever, and I will get to it eventually, but in the meantime, I really enjoyed this one.

I loved this book, it was so beautifully written. The characters and the story were so memorable. I look forward to reading so many more books from her in the future.

A nice twist on the genre, it was well written and kept me entertained.  I found the characters to be likable, and the author is pretty unafraid of angering readers by tossing in an unexpected twist, so I actually find that to be refreshing.

This one was very reminiscent of Before I Fall, but it had a interesting difference.  I thought it was really well done.

Yes it's another dystopian, but I found it to be a good twist on it. I look forward to the next book to see how the story plays out.

Another author where I'm a little late to the party.  I found this book to be really well done, and made me think.

  4. So many of these authors I need to try. Yay for Heather Demetrios!

  5. I agree with Heather Demetrios for sure. I was on the fence, but after I read I'll Meet You There, I am a fan for sure. I ordered Something Real, and cannot wait to read it! And I am currently reading Landry Park! I still haven't read The Book Thief (I know, I know) so you aren't the LAST person in America, only like, the bottom 3 ;)

    I am glad you liked My Last Kiss too, I have that one and am looking forward to reading it. Oh, and Just Like Fate! I have that one too. Great list!
