Top Ten Favorite New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2012
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. Kristin Cashore
Books I read: Graceling, Fire, Bitterblue
AMAZING. Perfect fantasy novels.
2. David Levithan
Books I read: Every Day
Technically, I had read two books that he cowrote, but I wasn't a big fan. Every Day was the first solo novel I had ever read by him and it is absolutely wonderful. One of my all-time favorite books.
3. A.S. King
Books I read: Please Ignore Vera Dietz, Ask the Passengers, Everybody Sees the Ants
Her books are heart-wrenching, magical, realistic, and she's a very cool lady!
4. Susan Dennard
Books I read: Something Strange and Deadly
Well, she was new to everyone, but I *loved* SSAD.
5. Cassandra Clare
Books I read: Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass
I like her TDI series a lot better than TMI, although the latter is still enjoyable.
6. Amy Plum
Books I read: Die for Me, Until I Die
If I hadn't won these in a HarperTeen grab bag giveaway, I probably would have never read them. What a mistake that would have been!
7. Stephanie Perkins
Books I read: Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door
How did I not read Anna sooner?? I will read anything Ms. Perkins writes.
8. Barry Lyga
Books I read: I Hunt Killers
Eerie, creepy, awesome. (The book, not Barry Lyga. Well, except maybe the awesome part.)
9. Veronica Roth
Books I read: Divergent
An awesome, UNIQUE dystopian! Still need to read Insurgent, though.
10. Kirsten Hubbard
Books I read: Wanderlove
Thanks to this book, I now want to go backpacking across Central America.
