Top Ten Favorite Brand New-To-Me Authors

Even though I did a lot of re-reading last year, and read quite a few books by authors I’ve read before, I still managed to read quite a few books by authors I’ve never read before.  Here are my new favorite authors.

  1. S. Jae-Jones.  I feel like I’ve been talking about Wintersong a lot lately, but I really did enjoy it, and I can’t wait to see what else she writes.
  2. Megan Spooner.  Hunted was an unexpected surprise, but I really liked it, and now I want to read her other books.
  3. Mitali Perkins.  Why has it taken me so long to read at least one of her books?  I’m glad I did, though, because she is amazing!
  4. Margaret Atwood.  I read The Handmaid’s Tale for the first time last year, but now I’m scared to read her other books, because what if I don’t like them and they don’t live up to this one?  I’m also open to suggestions on which of her books I should read next.
  5. Benjamin Alire Saenz.  I’m terrified to read Aristotle and Dante Discover TOmarhe Universe for the same reason I’m terrified to read Margaret Atwood’s other books.  But I will read it eventually.  I hope.
  6. Angie Thomas.  I loved The Hate U Give, and I can’t wait to see what else Angie Thomas comes up with.
  7. Colson Whitehead.  I really liked The Underground Railroad, but I’m hesitant to give his other books a try because I couldn’t get into Zone One.  But at least I liked The Underground Railroad.
  8. Stephanie Garber.  I’m glad I read Caraval, and I liked enough to consider Garber one of my new favorite authors.
  9. Karumi Riazi.  I thought The Gauntlet was a great book, especially if you liked Jumanji.  I am curious to see what other cool books she writes.
  10. Omar El Akkad.  I didn’t love American War, but I did like it enough to read whatever else he writes.
