Hey there guys, ugh today was not as great as it probably could have been. For some reason my scalp felt incredibly soar all day and gave me a splitting head ache. While I was working, so that was fun. All was not lost though. We did go out for curry tonight which was delicious and I get to relax next to the Christmas tree ❤ while writing this post.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s post is “Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016.”
- Rainbow Rowell
FanGirl has been the only book by Rainbow Rowell that I have ever read and I gotta say, I wasn’t really impressed.
- Liz Braswell
A Whole New World ( A Twisted Tale) was the first book I read by her and I really enjoyed it. I can’t wait to pick up more Twisted Tale books.
- Sarah J. Maas *
ACOTAR, I LOVED this book. Still haven’t read ACOMAF yet. Not sure I’m going to get to it this year but maybe it will be part of my Book New Years Resolution 😉
- Cassandra Clare
The Mortal Instruments, for all it’s hype, didn’t impress me at all. BUT, there is something about Clare’s writing that kind of made me want to read more. However I’m really not impressed with the story line. Shadow Hunters seems to be all she writes about so that kind of sucks when you’re interested in her writing, but not her story.
- Erin Morgenstern *
The Night Circus ❤ this boooooook!!!!! Everything, EVERYTHING about this book was exquisite. NC is the only thing she’s written so far. I heard rumor that she’s working on another book, fingers crossed!
- Markus Zusak
The Book Thief, sooo many emotions. His writing got me right in the feels.
- Victoria Aveyard
While I absolutely love her writing, her Red Queen series seems to be a bit of a knock of The Lunar Chronicles. Maybe that’s just me! Maybe it was because I read this right after reading Winter, I don’t know. They just seem so similar.
- Gayle Forman
If I Stay and it’s sequal Where She Went were two of the most inspiring books I read this year.
- Stephanie Perkins *
Etienne! ❤ This was one of my favorite contemporaries of this year and I just recently got a copy of the next book. I’m pretty excited to read it.
- Zoraida Cordova *
Labyrinth Lost was hands down a favorite read. I’m seriously extremely happy that I got to read an ARC of her book.
Well guys, these are the authors that I was introduced to this year. For the most part I really enjoyed a lot of their books and plan to continue reading from them. Especially the ones I put little asterisks next to 😉
Welp, my hand is freezing from being on the mouse looking for photos, turning in for the night. Good night guys ❤
