Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors in 2013


I read a ton of new-to-me authors in 2013, starting in about May.  I barely know where to start with this list...

1. Marissa Meyer
I was a reluctant reader of The Lunar Chronicles, and I look back on that Emma and think she was crazy (it's very likely she was).  Not only is Marissa a fabulous author, but she's super nice and loves her fans.

2. Kiera Cass
Kiera's The Selection and The Elite were two of the new-to-me books I read in June.  I know the book blogging community is kind of split 50-50 on what they think of her books, but I like them, and I'm excited for The One.  I also love her video-chats.  She's so much fun.

3. Elizabeth Eulberg
She's one of my favorite authors on Twitter, and it doesn't hurt that she's written a book involving The Beatles.

4. Lindsey Leavitt
One of the authors I fangirl over is Lindsey.  Going Vintage is one of my favorite books of 2013, and I Can. Not. Wait. for The Chapel Wars.

5. Robin LaFevers
Love, love, love Grave Mercy.  I'm so glad Shae convinced me to give her series a chance.

6. Tamara Ireland Stone
Okay, so I feel like this is turning into a list of my favorite 2013 reads, too, but I adored Time Between Us and liked Time After Time, and Tamara's Tweets are some of my favorites.

7. Jennifer Lynn Barnes
She is seriously awesome, and not just because she's BFFs with Ally Carter.  The Naturals is phenomenal.

8. Stacey Kade
She is one of the nicest authors out there.  It was so fun meeting her a couple weeks ago, and I've got to read at least one of her books soon.

9. Jennifer E. Smith
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is fabulous, and so is The Comeback Season.

10. Gayle Forman
Don't even get me started on Just One Day.  Her recent post about book endings was also spot-on.
