Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This weeks topic is New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016. Here we go in alphabetical order by last name:
Anne Bishop - I listened to Written in Red and I absolutely loved it! I definitely will be continuing this series - I could easily become obsessed, I think.
Rachel Caine - I read and absolutely loved both Ink and Bone and Paper and Fire! I can't wait for the release of Ash and Quill on July 11, 2017.
Ernest Cline - I finally read Ready Player One this year - and it was so much fun! I will have to try Armada soon.
Kody Kepplinger - I'm glad I finally got around to reading The Duff for YALSA's Backlist Bingo Reading Challenge. I will have to try more of her work.
Derek Landy - Technically, I read his story from 12 Doctors, 12 Stories featuring the 10th Doctor and Martha in 2015, but I'm counting early this year I listened to Skulduggery Pleasant on audio and it was a lot of fun. I've been told I have to continue the series so many times that I'll really have to soon.
Jenny Lawson - Based on the cover of Furiously Happy alone, I couldn't pass it up. I'd heard a great deal of great thing about her style and sense of humor. If you haven't tried her yet, I definitely recommend it.
Scott Lynch - Maybe you've heard me mention how much I liked The Lies of Locke Lamora?! I need to continue this series, hopefully on audiobook as narrator Michael Page gives a wonderful performance.
Melina Marchetta - I finally read Finnikin of the Rock for YALSA's Backlist Bingo Reading Challenge and now I know what I was missing out on for so long. Froi of the Exiles here I come.
Ruth Ware - Very pleased to have tried the claustrophobic mystery thriller The Woman in Cabin 10. If you're a fan of The Girl on the Train, you may want to give it a shot. I'll have to try her other release, In a Dark, Dark Wood.
So, what do you think of my list this week? Have you tried any of these authors yet? Do you have any recommendations for me? What new-to-you authors have you tried this year?
