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.
