Top Ten Tuesday is THE bookish meme, hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish, the book blog that hooked me on all other book blogs! I’m a sucker for bookish memes, so here we go…
Today’s topic is Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2014! I could only come up with 8 that I really wanted to showcase, so this is really my Top Eight and not Top Ten. Anyhoo, in no particular order here’s my list 🙂
Laini Taylor ~ Daughter of Smoke and Bone (#1)
Sarah J. Maas ~ Throne of Glass (#1) & The Assassin’s Blade (#0.1-#0.5)
Emery Lord ~ Open Road Summer
Gayle Forman ~ If I Stay (#1) & Where She Went (#2)
Markus Zusak ~ The Book Thief
Katie Cotugno ~ How To Love
Trish Doller ~ Something Like Normal & Where the Stars Still Shine
Leigh Bardugo ~ Shadow and Bone (#1)
Of these authors, I have the rest of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Throne of Glass (thus far) and Shadow and Bone sitting on my kitchen table, waiting to be read. I have Just One Day, Just One Year and Just One Night by Gayle Forman on my bookshelf/iPad calling out to me. When Dogs Cry and I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak are also patiently waiting on my bookshelf. Last but not least, 2015 will see new releases from Trish Doller (The Devil You Know), Emery Lord (The Start of Me and You), and Katie Cotugno (99 Days) which I’ll be sure to read. Can you believe I didn’t know who almost all of these authors were 12 months ago!?
There you have it, that’s my list! How about you, what did you have on your list? Have you got any others that you could recommend to me?
