Every week I participate in the Broke and Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday event. Each Tuesday the lovely people at Broke and Bookish post a theme to create a list by. This week’s theme is theme is My Favorite New-To-Me Authors of 2012.
Well, 2012 is almost over! Can you believe it?! This year has gone by so quickly! I read a lot of books this year and a lot of them were by authors I hadn’t read before. Some I loved and some I wasn’t a huge fan of. Below you’ll find a list of the ten new-to-me authors that I whose work I really loved!
Kami Kinard (The Boy Project)
James Dashner (The Maze Runner series)
Veera Hiranandani (The Whole Story of Half a Girl)
Jay Asher (Thirteen Reasons Why)
Jack Gantos(Dead End in Norvelt)
Juliet Marillier (Wildwood Dancing)
Ginny Rorby (Lost in the River of Grass)
Tera Lynn Childs (Forgive My Fins)
Linda Sue Park (A Long Walk to Water)
Maureen Johnson (13 Little Blue Envelopes)
P.W. Catanese (Happenstance Found)
I hope that if you haven’t yet read any of these authors you try to soon because they’re all talented storytellers and their books are so worthwhile! Were there any new-to-you authors that you discovered in 2012?
