Top Ten Tuesday: New-To-Me Authors from 2013

December 17:
Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013

1. John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) - Ok, so I definitely got a late start on this bandwagon. But I am SO glad that I finally read this book. Now I'm dying to read more!

2. Veronica Roth (Divergent) - Yet another bandwagon that I stumble upon late... I started the Divergent series earlier this year, and really enjoyed reading it.

3. Simone Elkeles (Wild Cards) - Can you believe it? I had never read a Simone Elkeles' book until this year. Now that I've read the beginning of the Wild Cards series, I'm dying to get my hands on the Perfect Chemistry series!

4. Colleen Hoover (Hopeless) - I'd seen SO many good reviews about this author, I just had to check her books out. I'm SO glad I did. Hopeless was a great read, and now I'm reading Losing Hope, which I am really loving as well.

5. Gena Showalter (Alice in Zombieland) - Yet another author that everyone seems to love, but that I had never read. After reading Alice in Zombieland, I'm ready for more! I may check out her adult series as well.

6. Sarah Crossan (Breathe) - I read both books in Sarah's series earlier this year and really loved her creative storyline. I'm looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.

7. J.A. Redmerski (The Edge of Never) - I read the first book in this series earlier this year as well, and fell in love with the story. She had SO many books, I need to read more!

8. Courtney Summers (This Is Not A Test) - I literally kicked myself when I finished reading this book for not reading it sooner! Excellent author!

9. Trish Doller (Where the Stars Still Shine) - I really, really, really enjoyed this book! Doller has such a great voice in her books. I can't wait to read Something Like Normal!

10. Cristin Terrill (All Our Yesterdays) - Ok, I literally just discovered this author last week. I really enjoyed reading her time travel book, it was so creatively unique. I'm anxious to see what she has in store for us next!

What's on your Top Ten list this week?

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!


  1. I've only read one book by John Green and one by Simon Ekeles, so I'm kind of in the same boat :). I really need to read more by these authors. Nice list!
    Ninja Girl

  2. I have Colleen Hoover on my list too this week. I can't believe I forgot to put Veronica Roth on my list. I've loved the Divergent trilogy this year.

  3. Read Alice in Wonderland and I believe Gena is an amazing author! Can't wait to read All our Yesterday :D Great list.

  4. Yay, I'm not the only one late to the John Green party! And ohmygosh, Perfect Chemistry, you must read that series! And her Paradise duology!

  5. You found some great authors this year. So happy you started Divergent and found Cristin Terrill. I was beyond excited to find her myself. All Our Yesterdays was fantastic!

    My TTT List

  6. Great list! I love Elkeles, John Green and Veronica Roth. Hopefully I can read Trish Dollar in 2014. I have heard good things. Great list!

  7. So many fantastic new-to-me authors this year! Some who've been around for a while and some debuts that I hope will stay around for a while (Samantha Shannon for one). A great year.

  8. I really want to try out some Courtney Summers--I hear great things about her books from so many readers. Nice picks!

  9. I didn't read The Fault in Our Stars or Divergent until this year, either, so you're not alone! nice list. :)


  10. I was late on the bandwagon for TFIOS too but it was so amazing and heartbreaking when I finally read it. I just know the movie is going to destroy me emotionally.

    My Top Ten

  11. I have not read The fault in our stars yet but I read good reviews about it. I might try that book next year. I still have a few more pending books until the end of this month.

    Perfect Chemistry is okay but not as good as Leaving Paradise series. I recommend Leaving Paradise too if you have not read that yet.

  12. I can't believe I left Courtney Summers off my list, I think I love her so much I forgot I only read her for the first time this year! And I haven't read any John Green so you're not the latest one to the party!

  13. I have The Edge of Never on my TBR list.Good to hear you liked it! :)

  14. John Green...I need to read more from him, too! I really enjoyed DIVERGENT. I look forward to Roth's next series! I think WILD CARDS is only the second book I've read by Elkeles. Still gotta get on it! I've heard Hoover is fabulous! I haven't read a lot of your choices! I need to read more, lol!

  15. John Green was on my list too! I completely adore his novels.

  16. Veronica Roth and John Green are on my list too! They're really good writers, aren't they? :D
    My Top Ten Tuesday

  17. I was also late to the party with John Green and Veronica Roth, but wow it was worth it. They are both so talented, and both managed to make me cry, which in my opinion makes them even better! Great list :)

  18. Great list! I almost put Colleen Hoover on my list - I adored Slammed, still need to read Hopless - but stuck with new authors who I gave 5 star reviews too. I really want to read All Our Yesterdays! :) My TTT.


Thanks for stopping by! :)
