Top Ten New to Me Authors That I Found in 2014
Awesome Self-Pubbed Authors that I Discovered in 2014 (and have read more than one of their books):
Kate L. Mary – I read the first two books in this self-pubbed author’s Broken World series and I’m hooked! If you like zombie books, try this series out!
Nikki Rae – I LOVED her Sunshine series and I plan to read and review her new novella The Donor very soon!
Tellulah Darling – Her Blooming Goddess Trilogy was all sorts of fun!
Loved Their Debut:
Anne Blankman – I adored Prisoner of Night and Fog and will be reading and reviewing book #2 very soon!
Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – (Well, it was Amie’s debut) SO loved both These Broken Stars and This Shattered World!!! Now I need to read Spooner’s other series.
SO Behind the Times:
Melina Marchetta – I read the first two Lumatere Chronicles books and loved them. Now I just need to read the final book in that trilogy and Jellicoe Road – everyone raves about it!
Rainbow Rowell – I finally got around to reading Rowell! I loved both Landline and Fangirl and will definitely be reading more!
Marissa Meyer – I’ve still only read Cinder, but I promise to catch up with the rest of the world!
Brandon Sanderson – I finally read a Brandon Sanderson book and now I definitely need to read more!
Robin LaFevers – LOVED Grave Mercy! Why did I wait so long to read it?
So, what authors did you discover this year?
Great list of authors! Some of these I need to try for myself as well. So happy you liked them.
Yes, I had trouble limiting it to just ten!
Great list! I also had so much trouble narrowing down my list. I read some great books this year!
I know – coming up with just ten was the hardest part!
OOoh nice list! Lots of new to me ones here as well! Marissa Meyer is one I read before but it was this year that I gave her a 2nd shot and really loved her books! Great picks!
Here’s my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
Great books here! Loved THESE BROKEN STARS and can’t wait to read the next in that series 🙂
Thanks for the Broken World suggestion. I love me some zombies. Here’s my list http://videoclimbersvariations.blogspot.com/2014/12/im-back-and-top-ten-tuesday.html
What’s not to love about zombies? 🙂
YES^^ Brandon Sanderson ♥ Way of Kings was a truly life-changing read for me and I feel like I might just enjoy The Stormilight Archives even more than the Mistborn books, and THAT IS saying something. I actually *just* started Grave Mercy over the past week and even though I’m only at like, chapter 6-7, I’m really into it already 😀 Cinder is another of my favorites and the series just keeps getting better and better!
I still need to read Landlines, Finnikin of the Rock and These Broken Stars though. Happy reading Nicole!
Rainbow Rowel would be on my list too, and I hear so many good things about Brandon Sanderson I really should take a look at his books.
Oh yes. You need to read Quintana of Charyn, stat! So good. Also, try Steelheart by Sanderson. Superheroes and such. 🙂
I don’t know why I haven’t read Quintana yet. I had it from the library, but never got to it. And then I think there’s this shame thing – like the people at the library will look at me askance if I get it again. Didn’t you already check this book out once? Yes, I obviously have some strange sense that the world revolves around me if I think that the librarians know what books I’ve checked out. LOL! 🙂
This is the second time I’ve seen Prisoner of Night and Fog on a list today, and it just convinces me that adding it to my TBR was the right thing to do! Historical fiction is not my forte at all, but maybe that can be my goal genre to break into next year.
I’m not a historical fiction fan either, but I have to confess that something about the WWII era (and especially about someone as insane and powerful as Hitler) intrigues me. I really loved this one!
I almost bought These Broken Stars the other day but I changed my mind. I see nothing but amazing reviews though! It’s definitely on my list!
You should definitely buy it!
Nice list! I loved JELLICOE ROAD. I also adore The Lunar Chronicle series. It’s one of my favorites. I’m a big Sanderson fan as well. His Mistborn series is my favorite. I want to read WAY OF KINGS, but that book is SO dang long!
Kritika over at Snowflakes and Spider Silk did a read-a-long for WoK, otherwise I don’t think I would have been brave enough to pick it up! 🙂
I am so very behind the times myself. Seriously, I have only read ONE of your behind the times authors! They’re all on my TBR, of course. And I want to read These Broken Stars and Prisoner of Night and Fog. And Landline! I need to read some Rainbow Rowell ASAP, and Landline sounds so, so good. Great list, I need to get my act together and read more 😉
There are SO MANY books to read – it’s impossible to keep up with all of them!!
Thanks so much for including me in the list!! You just made my day! I will have to check some of the others out as well, looks like a good list. And Cinder has been on my to-read list for a while!
You’re very welcome! When you sent me an ARC of book #3 today, I thought, “Hey, I need to tell her I featured her on my TTT!” Actually, now that I think about it, I also included you on my Halloween TTT – so, obviously you can tell I’m a fan! 🙂

Eep! You’ve “met” some fantastic authors this year! I am OBSESSED with Melina Marchetta. She’s my favorite author. You basically need to read everything by her. 😛 I also love Rainbow Rowell, Marissa Meyer, This Shattered World authors, and Robin LaFevers. Anne Blankman made my list, too; I just adored her debut. I need to read My Ex From Hell!
Yes, narrowing it down was so hard! I just read Cinder this year too, but I LOVED it! So much fun and such great characters! I haven’t read Sanderson yet either, but I plan to change that soon! Since I started reading young adult and middle grade this year I discovered tons of fantastic authors! Riordan, Meyer, Clare, Landry, Bardugo, & Taylor to name a few. (Some of their first names are hard to spell)
I know – I really need to keep going with Meyer’s books!!
I actually haven’t read any of the books on this list! I intend to read Cinder as soon as possible! I also won the entire Blooming trilogy (My Ex From Hell) as well, so I look forward to trying those!
Hope you love the Blooming trilogy! I thought it was great fun!
[…] #7- Being included in someone’s list of their favorite new authors of 2014. This made me smile. I love that anyone would buy my books, and I love getting feedback, but being included in someone’s list for the favorites of 2014? Amazing! Thank you so much Nicole Hewitt at Feed Your Fiction Addiction! […]
