Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
It’s officially 2018, and what better way to start the new year than with a Top Ten Tuesday post. This is always one of my favourite Top Ten Tuesday topics to do every year, so I’m really excited about this weeks post. I always love looking back at all of the different books and authors that I read last year, and seeing which ones were authors I had already read books from, and which were entirely new to me.
And so, here are some of my favourite new-to-me authors that I read in 2017!
Despite only having read one of his books, Adam Silvera is definitely still one of my favourite new authors who I discovered last year. I absolutely loved History is All You Left Me when I read it at the beginning of the year, and am so glad that I picked it up and gave it a go, as I now can’t wait to dive into more of his books this year.
With The Sun is Also a Star being one of my favourite books of last year, Nicola Yoon is definitely an author whose books I am so glad I read in 2017. I read her first book Everything, Everything very early on in the year, and thoroughly enjoyed it, but was still not prepared for how much I would adore her second novel, The Sun is Also a Star, and so how much I fall in love with Nicola Yoon’s writing.
I started a fair few series in 2017, but one of my favourites has to be the Lunar Chronicles. So far, I have read the first two books in this series, and thoroughly enjoyed both of them with their great characters and plot twists I never saw coming, so I’m really glad I finally read some of Marissa Meyers books last year, and I can’t wait to continue on this series in 2018.
Somehow 2017 was the year that I first read a V. E. Schwab book, and already I am so excited to dive into more of her books. I read This Savage Song back in October, and just could not get enough of her writing and her amazing characters, something I can’t wait to revisit both in Our Dark Duet, and in some of her other series that I also hope to pick up pretty soon.
2017 was the year when I really began to read and explore more classics, with George Orwell being an author whose books I really fell in love with during it. So far I have read likely his two most popular books, Animal Farm and 1984, and so I am now really excited to explore more of his work in the future.
Finally, I could not write this list without including Renee Ahdieh. I adored both of the books I read of hers last year, with Flame in the Mist becoming one of my favourite reads of 2017, and I can’t wait to continue reading more of her books in the future.
