Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This week’s topic is New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2018. This means the author doesn’t have to be new, but I hadn’t read anything by them until 2018. These are all books that I really enjoyed, so I will definitely keep an eye out for more books by the authors.

  1. I love that you found new authors in 2018. That’s what I want to find more of in 2019. I actually found Matt Haig in 2018 (who actually isn’t so new but new to me) and I loved his works. If you haven’t read any of his books, I’d give him a try. My favourite of his so far is How To Stop Time

  2. I read ONE by Sarah Crossan this year. It’s an intriguing one about conjoined twins. I’ve read several of Julie Berry’s books and enjoyed most of them. She’s got a new one coming out — LOVELY WAR — that sounds really good.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Happy TTT!

  3. I’ve never heard of any of these authors, but Chalk Man sounds really good. Just added it to my TBR! Also, how was I not already following you on Twitter?! Just corrected that too!

  4. Thanks for sharing these! It’s always neat to see if there are any that I might have already known, or else find new authors for myself. I am reading a book right now that I think you would probably like for your LGBT+ reviews, it’s called the The Princess of Baker Street. It’s a middle school story, but it’s really good so far!

  5. Ashley Herring Blake really impressed me with Ivy Aberdeen. I need to read many more of her books. My intro to Julie Berry was The Passion of Dolssa. I never knew I would like a book like that, but I did, and went to really enjoy Truth as well. I read my first Crossan book last year. Moonrise was really powerful.

  6. The Gentleman’s and Ladies’ Guide books look good to me- I’ve had my eye on those for a while actually- and seems like I saw good things about The Lucky Ones too!

  7. Well I haven’t read any of those authors!! I also read quite a few new-to-me authors this past year. Looking forward to reading even more this year!

  8. I’ve only heard of three of these authors. I read both One by Sarah Crossan and All the Truth That’s In Me in 2017 and I want to read The Chalk Man. I will have to look up the rest since you liked them so much.

  9. Mother of 3

    Wow! Lots of new authors… I tend to keep sticking with the same ‘ol ones adding in a few new ones here and there. I’ll have to look back at all my lists from last year and see if I read more than a handful of new ones.

  10. I love Sarah Crossan! She’s one of those authors that sneaks up on you and before you know it, you’ve read all of her titles. I love verse and she’s one of the few young adult authors brave enough to write entirely in verse for her novels. I loved Moonrise but I hope you can get around to reading Apple and Rain, it was a book that broke me.

    Isn’t that exciting to find new to you authors you love? I just finsihed a book from an author last night that I was happy to find out had other books!

  12. Amazing giveaway, Lauren, and keeping fingers crossed! Also such an impressive and comprehensive list of books you have! Thank you for sharing; you know I’m always looking for new-to-me authors and you’ve shared so many over the years that I’ve absolutely loved. Hope you’re having a great week!

  13. Ashley Herring Blake is an excellent author – I think I read one of hers at the tailend of 2017. Definitely a few on your list I’ve been meaning to read from! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog
