Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. They created it because they're "particularly fond of lists" and since I also enjoy lists, I've decided to participate in this fun feature.
It's been awhile since I've done a TTT (it's been awhile since I've blogged, really. Damn new job getting in the way of, well, everything.) but I love end of year wrap ups and knew I had to set aside some time to figure out which authors were new to me over this past year. It doesn't mean that these are debut authors. These are (eleven) authors I hadn't read before this year. Did you discover any new authors in 2014?
Joseph Boyden: Can Lit master. I must read more of his books.
Gemma Burgess: I really like her series about 20-somethings living in Brooklyn and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Jenny Han: I hadn't read Han before this year and I really don't know why. I LOVED To All the Boys I've Loved Before.
K.A. Tucker: She is probably my favourite New Adult author - and she's Canadian!
Laura Chapman: I'm so proud of blogger-turned-author Laura. Her debut novel was amazing.
Marissa Stapley: Another Canadian makes the list! Mating for Life is more serious than I tend to read but it's amazing and Marissa is a total sweetheart.
Morgan Matson: Another YA author I had been meaning to read for forever. Since You've Been Gone was a lot of fun.
Sarah Jio: I can't believe this was my first Jio book. I cannot wait to read her latest, The Look of Love.
Sara Shepard: I don't really have any interest in Pretty Little Liars but The Heiresses intrigued me and I was hooked from the first page.
Tahereh Mafi: I blew through Mafi's Shatter Me series and I'm really glad I read them!
Terry Fallis: While No Relation wasn't my favourite book, I still really want to read the rest of Fallis' novels.
