Top Ten Tuesday: New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2013

Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2013
 Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish

I read so many new authors this year it was hard to narrow it down.  I tried to pick authors that made me want to either read their entire back catalog, or have me really really excited for their next book. Or perhaps they managed to surprise me in one of my heavily read genres (ahem, dystopians, fantasy). But this is in no way an exhaustive list. 

1. Rick Yancy

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)

2. Shana Abe

The Sweetest Dark (The Sweetest Dark, #1) The Deepest Night (The Sweetest Dark, #2)

3. Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)

4. Samantha Shannon

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)

5. Elizabeth Wein

Code Name Verity

6. Marissa Meyers

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)

7. Cat Patrick

Forgotten Just Like Fate

8. Mindee Arnett

The Nightmare Affair (The Arkwell Academy, #1)

9. Julianna Baggott

Pure (Pure, #1) Fuse (Pure #2)

10. Huntley Fitzpatrick

 My Life Next Door (My Life Next Door, #1)



  1. Obviously Sarah J. Maas is on my list (I'm trying to make my 2013 wrap up not just an ode to Sarah J. Maas hahaha), but I almost at Cat Patrick/Suzanne Young on my TTT as well for Just Like Fate which I LOVED. But then I realized I was over 10 people already and got lazy haha

  2. I hope to make it to Sarah J. Mass this year...but we will see! I think there are 3-4 books ahead of it. Great list :)

  3. My Life Next Door was one of my favorite books I read last year! I also liked Cinder; I haven't read the follow up yet. The Nightmare Affair looks so much like Sarah Rees Brennan's Unspoken cover

  4. Great list -- I need to read some Marissa Meyer and Huntley Fitzpatrick after seeing them on everyone's lists

    My TTT
