As this year comes to a close, I tend to look back at my list of books that I have read for the year. What were my favorites? What books did I loathe? What books did I re-read? Is there an author that really stuck out this year as far as the amount of books I read from their series?
Well this week it is all about authors, specifically new-to-me authors for 2012. So, here is my…
Top Ten Newbie Authors to Me
1. Susan Ee with Angelfall
2. Jay Kristoff with Stormdancer
3. Leigh Bardugo with Shadow and Bone
4. Jamie McGuire with Beautiful Disaster
5. Olivia Cunning with Backstage Pass
6. Tiffany Reisz with The Siren, The Angel and The Prince
7. Karina Cooper with Tarnished and Gilded
8. Darynda Jones with First Grave on the Right, Second Grave on the Left and Third Grave Dead Ahead.
9. Jennifer L. Armentrout with Obsidian and Onyx
10. Kristen Ashley with Mystery Man, Rock Chick, Rock Chick Rescue, Rock Chick Redemption, Rock Chick Renegade and Rock Chick Revenge
As you can tell some of these authors I have read more than one book from this year. Most of the authors that I have only one book next to their name were new authors this year so I have high hopes for the next book in each of the series.
What about you? Is there an author that caught your eye this year? Who was it?
