Good Day, Glorious Bookworms!
I’m getting back on the bandwagon this week with The Broke and The Bookish. It’s THE RETURN of Top Ten Tuesday! The week, the ladies asked us to list our favorite “new to me” authors in 2013. I ran into a whole lot of awesome new-to-me authors this year. Let me tell you ’bout them!
1. Rainbow Rowell: In 2013, I read every book Rainbow Rowell has ever published. Sure, her catalog is only three titles (Attachments, Eleanor & Park, and Fangirl), but I cannot get enough. New release in 2014? Heck yes! Rainbow, we should be pals. I’m only minimally creepy. Swearsies. (Reviews here, here, and here.)
2. Mira Grant: I freaking love Mira Grant. I loved her take on zombies in the Feed trilogy. I love her mad scientists. I love her slightly manic characters. I can’t put down her books, and I don’t want to try. Yay, Mira! (Reviews here, here, and here… And here.)
3. Jojo Moyes: I was BLOWN AWAY by Me Before You and I adored The Girl You Left Behind. I respect a writer who can both depress me and make me feel hopeful at the same time. Get back, Jojo! (Reviews here and here.)
5. Justin Cronin: Oooooh scary, scary, scary. The Passage was great fun, I plan to read The Twelve soon, at which point I will begin whining and pining for the final installment in the trilogy. (Review)
So, there’s my list. It’s not exhaustive, but I think I covered the high points. What say you, Bookworms? New to you authors in 2013 you absolutely adored? Tell us about them!
