Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish, and the topic this week is our Top 10 New-to-Me Authors we read in 2014.
My favourite author list expanded quite a bit this year! I would have had no problems completing a top 20 list, so I had to be a little picker than normal. To help me stick to 10, I chose the authors I would add to my auto-buy authors list. Heck, I’ve already marked A Court of Thorns and Roses and Fairest on my calendar and pre-ordered Ensnared… (Not that I’m addicted or anything *cough*)
My list is in no particular order, and links below the images are to each authors Goodreads page.
I’m so glad that I took a chance on Throne of Glass, Splintered and Scarlet (and the sequels!) this year. The hype surrounding these books is HUGE, and I was so apprehensive to start them. Now, I wish I had read them sooner! I loved each one a little more than the last, and they’re all amongst my all-time favourite reads. And it’s not just the books and their authors: I love the characters as well, and they’ve become my new favourites, too! Morpheus, Alyssa, Celaena, Chaol, Dorian, Cinder, Scarlet, Iko, Wolf… You HAVE to try these books if you haven’t! I highly, HIGHLY recommend them.
Yes, you read that right. J.K. Rowling. I’m EXTREMELY late to the Harry Potter world, but better late than never! I can’t wait to read the rest of the Harry Potter series, and I have the rest of the books, but I’m going to take my time. I loved Nevermore and Crane, and I can’t wait to continue on with the next. I started and completed the Unearthly trilogy this year, and I really enjoyed it. Since I read Angelfall, I didn’t think a series featuring angels would be able to hold my interest, and I’m so glad I tried the Unearthly books. While it doesn’t quite beat Angelfall, I still loved the series - and the way it ended!. I read two Jenny Colgan books this year – The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris and Little Beach Street Bakery – and I was so surprised that I enjoyed it so much more than I was expecting. Loop was such a fun read, and it’s another series I can’t wait to continue on with.
What do you think of my list? Who made it onto your new favourite authors list this year?
