Top Ten Tuesday -New Authors I Read in 2017

Today’s Topic: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2017

Hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish

If you have been following my Top Ten Tuesday posts, then some of these authors and their books will be familiar to you. I love discovering new-to-me authors and many of them wrote some of my favorite reads this year.

The main reason I will try a new author is that their cover(s) grab my eye. But occasionally I will do so if the book has great hype or if I find it on sale.

Overall, 2017 was a good year for me in experiencing new authors. Clicking on the title links will take you to my reviews for some of these stories.

  • Amy Harmon The Bird and the Sword, The Law of Moses, From Sand and Ash, A Different Blue, The Queen and the Cure –By far my favorite author discovery of the year and also on my list of favorite authors ever.
  • Marc Levy P.S. From Paris – Would love to read more by this French author.
  • Ashley WeaverMurder at the Brightwell, Amory Ames Series (review coming soon) -Will definitely be reading the rest of her series.
  • Jessica Brockmole At the Edge of SummerI have put her other books on my TBR list.
  • Robert TheirStorm and SilenceLoved this book so much, I want to read the rest of his series.
  • Jill Cox The BridgeHer YA debut set in Paris was amazing. Can’t wait for the sequel.
  • L.L. Muir Bones for Bread, Going Back for Romeo –I enjoy her writing and will most likely read more by this author
  • Sarah Allen Addison The Girl Who Chased the MoonWill be on the lookout for more of her stories as I enjoyed the magical aspect of this one.
  • Laura Miller A Bird on a Windowsill –I liked this one, but didn’t love it. Will probably give this author another try.
  • Rebecca J Greenwood The Darkest Summer –I was drawn in by the premise of it being based on the myth of Hades and Persephone. It was just okay.
  • Inglath Cooper That Month in Tuscany –I liked the story and will most likely read more by the author
  • Gill Paul The Secret Wife -really wanted to love this one as I’m obssessed with the Russian dynasty, but I just found it too slow.
  • Pam Hillman The Promise of Breeze Hill -This read was sweet and I liked the historical setting. Although it could have been better, I’m curious to learn more about the hero’s brothers when the series continues.
  • Connilyn Cossette Counted with the Stars, Shadow of the Stars –Love this author’s take on biblical/historical events and will read anything she writes.
  • Teresa Tysinger Someplace Familiar -was impressed with this author’s debut and will keep her on my radar.
  • Sarah Glenn Marsh Fear the Drowning Deep -I enjoyed this darker fairy tale type story and will read more by this author
  • Stephanie Morrill The Lost Girl of Astor Street -loved this YA mystery set in Prohibition Chicago and would like to see this turned into a series.
  • Lesley Kagan The Mutual Admiration Societythis one definitely fell outside my usual reading patterns, but I liked it anyway. May read more from this author.

Who were some authors you discovered this year? Do you have any recommendations for me?

  1. I still need to read Jill’s book! It looks really sweet, and I love the setting – Paris is one of those “bucket list,” someday places that’d be a dream to visit!
