I decided last minute to participate in the Top 10 of 2017 Event, which is being hosted over at Kimberlyfaye Reads. Each day has a different top ten list associated with it (you can see the list in the image above). You can choose to complete some or all of the lists (I’m not sure yet if I’ll be doing them all). Feel free to join in at any time!
TOP TEN NEW-TO-ME AUTHORS
1. Rae Carson
I jumped into the Gold Seer Trilogy two years late. Now I just need to read that final book!
2. Jason Reynolds
I read two books by Jason Reynolds this year (both in verse) and really enjoyed both of them. I was introduced to him with Long Way Down, which was a HUGE favorite for me!
3. Becky Albertalli
I finally joined the rest of the world and read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda this year and discovered the magnificence that is Becky Albertalli.
4. Laini Taylor
I listened to the Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy this year! Now I need to dive into Strange the Dreamer!
5. Claudia Gray
I dove into Claudia Gray with Defy the Stars. I plan to read the Firebird Trilogy very soon!
6. Julie Buxbaum
7. Emery Lord
Oh, how happy I am to have joined the rest of you in understanding Emery Lord’s Brilliance. The Names They Gave Us is an absolute favorite! I need to pick up her other books now!
8. Jeff Zentner
Goodbye Days was fantastic, and now I am even more sure I’ll love The Serpent King. So why haven’t I read it yet?
9. Marie Rutkowski
I finally read The Winner’s Trilogy!
10. Maggie Stiefvater
I saved the best for last!! I am so excited that I “discovered” Maggie Stiefvater this year! Her writing is just … I can’t even describe how much I love it. I listened to her entire Raven Cycle and all four books in The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series. Next, I’ll be reading All the Crooked Saints!
