Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2012
1) Megan Whalen Turner - Last week I devoured the first three books of The Queen's Thief series. I have since fallen in love with Eugenides and his entire world. THANK YOU Heidi and Keertana for pushing these books and discussing them with me!
2) Juliet Marillier - Sevenwaters is not a place that I will soon forget. THANK YOU Heidi for sharing your love of this series with me.
3) Susan Ee - Angelfall is a fantastic paranormal/dystopian with a truly kick butt heroine. I am getting excited for the second book to release in 2013.
4) Kirsten Hubbard - I love the travel themes in Wanderlove, they really spoke to a dormant part of my soul. This book both made me reminisce and want to plan my next trip. Also, a great story about a girl trying to figure out who she wants to be. THANK YOU Heather for recommending this story to me.
5) Deborah Harkness - While I enjoyed A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night solidified my love for this author. I read both books this year and they have some of the most thoroughly researched history that I've read. Plus a hot vampire. You can't go wrong. Carrie, I had such a great time reading Shadow of Night with you this summer.
6) Colleen Hoover - I read a lot of contemporary fiction, but I'm often disappointed with the constantly recycled plot line. I love that the plot of Slammed developed differently. The characters also jumped off the page for me. I want to hear Will recite some slam poetry some day.
7) Gayle Forman - I read If I Stay and Where She Went this year and I will now read anything this author produces. I'm already gearing up to LOVE Just One Day. My friend Heather wrote an amazing review that has me salivating to get my hands on the book.
8) Veronica Rossi - I adored Under the Never Sky and preparing myself to love Through The Ever Night as well.
9) Jandy Nelson - The Sky Is Everywhere is a beautifully written book with a powerful message. I can't wait to see what else Ms. Nelson writes. THANK YOU Heather for encouraging me to read this one.
10) John Green - The Fault in Our Stars is the first book I've read by John Green. Obviously I need to add more to that list, but what a way to begin. If you haven't read this book yet, you should. And bring tissues.
