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 Weaver –Murder at the Brightwell, Amory Ames Series (review coming soon) -Will definitely be reading the rest of her series.
- Jessica Brockmole –At the Edge of Summer –I have put her other books on my TBR list.
- Robert Their –Storm and Silence –Loved this book so much, I want to read the rest of his series.
- Jill Cox –The Bridge –Her 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 Moon –Will 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 Society –this 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?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you get a chance to check out some of the authors you are interested in.
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!
It’s so good. Definitely one of my favorites this year. It reminds me of Stephanie Perkins Anna and the French Kiss.
