Top Ten Tuesday- Top Ten New-to-Me Authors of 2014

toptentuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is all about the fantastic authors that I discovered this year. I spent plenty of time with my beloved tried and true favorites, but I also stumbled upon some new gems!

1. Derek Landy. I recently discovered Skulduggery Pleasant. This series is so much fun and quite possibly the best discovery of 2014. I am waiting for book 4 right now.

2. Leigh Bardugo. I discovered and devoured the Grisha trilogy in 2014.

3. Jasper Fforde. In my quest to find fantasy novels for my middle school book club, I picked up The Last Dragonslayer and loved it.

4. Jennifer E. Smith. I have enjoyed all of her contemporary YA romances.

5. Robin LaFevers. I finally got around to starting His Fair Assassins trilogy. I still need to finish the last one. I don’t want it to be over, so I am dragging my heels.

I also enjoyed a number of 2014 debuts. I will be watching for more from these new-to-everyone in 2014 authors!

6. Brandy Colbert. Her debut, Pointe, was an intense read.
