Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
I’ve read a few books this year.
In fact I’ve read 117 of them so far. That’s a lot of new authors. And from those, there are some that I NEED to read more from. And I am limited by a) the authors only having released one book, b) other books not being in my local library or c) my monetary funds.
So here we go!
Sarah Crossan, author of Apple and Rain
I just finished reading this book. And ohhhhh it is amazing. Seriously. It’s about abandonment and sisters and mothers and family and friends and it’s just great. I need to read more of Sarah Crossn.
Gabrielle Tozer, author of The Intern
Luckily, Faking It will be coming out at the end of this year, so that’s exciting!! I get to read more of Josie’s story.
Amy Zhang, author of Falling Into Place
I will read anything this girl ever writes. Ever. Falling Into Place has been one of my favourite books this year. Possibly THE favourite book.
Benjamin Alire Saenz, author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
If you haven’t heard me banging on about this book before, clearly you’re not following this blog closely enough. I KID, I KID. Suffice it to say that this book is beautiful and I need to read more from this author.
Abigail Haas, author of Dangerous Girls
BECAUSE SERIOUSLY, MIND EQUALS BLOWN.
Patrick Ness, author of More Than This
MIND EQUALS BLOWN AGAIN. Apparently I like it when my brain explodes. Because this book was awesome.
Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door
This book was perhaps my biggest surprise of this year. It was sweet and lovely, but had a lot more depth than I expected. Definitely an author to read more of.
Crystal Chan, author of Bird
This was such a unique, interesting, diverse book and the writing was absolutely beautiful.
Melissa Keil, author of Life in Outer Space
Luckily I won’t have to wait much longer to read another book by Melissa Keil, because I ordered The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl recently. I’M SO EXCITED.
Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, authors of These Broken Stars
You guys don’t even know how excited I am for This Shattered World. And I’ll have to check out the individual works of these authors as well, because they look awesome.
So there you have it!
Ten authors I seriously have to read more books from. There are some authors that ALMOST made it to the list, except I figured out I’d read two of their books. Because, you know, I just HAD to read more from them (I’m looking at you, Claire Zorn).
