Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2014

toptentuesday 2014 has been another good reading year for me full of lots of new-to-me authors, including the author I ended up writing my thesis on. It was excruciating choosing just ten favorites among the long list, but here’s my best stab at it. Let me know your favorites on my list and the new-to-you authors you loved finding out about this year in the comments.Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme.

  1. I am such a fan of Tahereh Mafi. I know some of her fans dropped off after the last book (you’ll discover why when you read) but I’m a fan now more than ever. Absolutely love her. And her and her hubby Ransom Riggs are so cute together.

    1. I read the last book and loved it! Oh well, maybe I’m not in sync with her other readers. Also totally agree about her and Ransom Riggs. I definitely stalk both of their instagrams.

      1. YES. See I LOVE Warner and a lot of people hate him. I have friends that have basically written her off they were so mad with how it ended. Meanwhile, I LOVED the ending 🙂

  2. I haven’t read any of these I’m ashamed to say! I need to get reading. I pretty much worship Melina Marchetta though for the Lumatere Chronicles. I really need to read her other books soon! I’m glad to see Meg Wolitzer is on your list, I am looking forward to finally starting the Interestings.

  3. Laurie Halse Anderson! I love her. I’m glad you found her this year. 🙂 I haven’t read The Impossible Knife of Memory yet, but I’ve heard good things. Also, I really need to read some Tahereh Mafi – I keep seeing her and her books everywhere!
    My TTT!

    1. Thank you. I loved reading your list as well. For some unknown reason I’m having a hard time commenting on all blogger blogs this week, but I am super interested in reading Sarah Morgan. Maybe she will be on my top new-to-me authors of 2015 list next year!
