Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015


1. Carrie Ryan

I still haven’t read Forest of Hands and Teeth (though I plan to!!), but I did read Daughter of Deep Silence and her two middle grade books this year. I see what everyone’s been talking about now!

2. Amy Engel

All those fantastic reviews of The Book of Ivy won me over and I read both books in the duology this year!

3. JR Ward

I read my first JR Ward book this year – but it wasn’t Brotherhood of the Black Dagger (someday). The Bourbon Kings felt like a guilty pleasure, but I really enjoyed it anyway!

4. Sara Raash

I jumped into the Snow Like Ashes series this year – though I kind of wished I would have waited until the third book, since the second one wasn’t spectacular. (It wasn’t bad – just not as fantastic as the first one.)

5. James Dashner

I still haven’t finished the Maze Runner series, but I did read the first two books. And I introduced my son to the books – and he LOVES them! Now I just need to watch The Scorch Trials movie and then read the third book and the prequel.

6. JA Redmerski

I remember when The Edge of Never came out and everyone was raving about it. I won it, but didn’t pick it up until this year. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it as much as most people seemed to, but I’ll probably still read the second book (which I also won).

7. Jodi Meadows

I finally read The Orphan Queen, and I own several other Meadows books. I WILL read them, I promise! (Oh, and writing this just made me realize that I could download The Mirror King from Edelweiss so I can read it soon. Done. Yay!!)

8. Morgan Matson

I’ve still only read Since You’ve Been Gone, but I plan to read more Matson in the future!

9. Heather Demetrios

After all the buzz around I’ll Meet You There, I had to read this one. I also own Something Real, so hopefully I’ll get to that one soon(ish).

10. Jandy Nelson

I’ll Give You the Sun was amazing! Now I just need to read The Sky is Everywhere.

What authors were new to you this year? I want to know!

  1. I SO agree with The Book of Ivy. It was so hyped up in the beginning so I wasn’t sure if I’d like it. Another book that caught me off guard is Illuminae. I haven’t read anything by those two authors but I’d like to read more from them because I loved that book so much.

    I also enjoyed The Maze Runner even though a ton of people don’t care for that series. But I’ve only read the first book in the series, hopefully I can finish it soon. I love your list. 😉

  2. I really need to read J.R Ward, Jodi Meadows, and Jandy Nelson; basically just authors whose first names start with J. I loved Snow Like Ashes, still need to read book 2!

  3. I’ll Meet You There is one of my favourite books of 2015 and I definitely plan on reading Something Real next year. I too have yet to pick up The Maze Runner trilogy despite owning the box yet. I put off reading I’ll Give You The Sun for so long and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner. I feel like I’ll need to stock up on my tissue supply for The Sky is Everywhere.

  4. I love JR Ward! Her books are so addicting. Once you finally get to BDB, you won’t be able to stop reading them. Though I like the earlier books more. However, I just read the new spin-off, Blood Kiss, and it was fantastic! Jandy Nelson is good, too!

  5. I was introduced to Leigh Bardugo this year AND SHE IS NOW MY FAVORITE AUTHOR (along with Maggie Stiefvater, but I’ve known of her for ages xD)

    AND MORGAN MATSON IS AMAZING! READ AMY & ROGER’S EPIC DETOUR! YOU MUST MUST MUST! It has some really cool formatting additives, and playlists, and great characters that you will just fall in love with. This book made me laugh really hard.
