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

December 8: Top Ten New-To-Me Favorite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/3433047.Sarah_J_Maas https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5351825.Mindy_McGinnis

1. Sarah J. Maas -I'm SO totally late to the party when it comes to Sarah J. Maas! I read *A Court of Thorns and Roses* this year, and absolutely adored the book. I can't wait for the rest of the books in the series, and I'm hoping to start the *Throne of Glass* series early next year!

2. Mindy McGinnis -I've had the *Not a Drop to Drink* series on my TBR for FOREVER, but got the chance to read *A Madness So Discreet* early and jumped on it. I was not disappointed, and I will be reading *Not a Drop to Drink* asap!

3. Huntley Fitzpatrick - Would you believe that I had *My Life Next Door* sitting on my shelf for a really long time before I actually read it? Then I kicked myself for not having read it soon, because I loved it!

4. Abbi Glines - *Until Friday Night* was my first experience with Abbi Glines! I had a lot of her new adult books on my TBR, and I'm curious to get started on them!

5. Heather Demetrios - I'll Meet You There is the very first book I've read by Heather Demetrios, and I absolutely loved it! *Something Real* is the next book I plan to tackle of hers, and I'm super excited to finally read it!

6. Jojo Moyes - Somehow, I lived under a rock and didn't know about Jojo Moyes until this year! I read *Me Before You* with my book club earlier this year, and absolutely adored the story. *After You* was great as well, and I'm dying to get started on the rest of her books. :)

7. Andy Weir - To be honest, *The Martian* was no where near close to being on my TBR, but I read the book because The Hubby wanted to see the movie, and I'm all about reading the book before seeing the movie. I didn't expect to completely love the book as much as I did! A lot of the scientific stuff was over my head, but the book, and the movie, were both really great.

8. Paula Hawkins -Since everyone and their mama was reading *The Girl on the Train* this year, and then raving about it, I knew I had to check the book out. I was a little late to the party, but not by much! The book was mysterious and intense, and I loved it. Can't wait to read more from her!

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/4735144.Jay_Kristoff https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/164576.Suzanne_Young

9. Jay Kristoff - I knew I would love anything written by Amie Kaufman, but Jay Kristoff was new on my radar! I was curious though, especially since this book was getting rave reviews as well. Again, I loved it!

10. Suzanne Young - I've had *The Program* series on my TBR for way too long, but I knew I had to read Hotel Ruby as soon as I saw that stunning cover! I am really looking forward to reading *The Program* next!!


  1. I'm also new to Sarah J. Maas. I recently read Throne of Glass and really loved it. I'm hoping to catch up on the series before the year ends and maybe read ACOTAR as well :D

  2. I reallyyyyyyyy want to read THE MARTIAN, ME BEFORE YOU, and I'LL MEET YOU THERE. I've heard really good--and sad!--things about all of them. YES to Sarah J. Maas. I love her Throne of Glass series so much and you should definitely read it. Also, MY LIFE NEXT DOOR was so freaking I can't even; love that book.

  3. Ooh nice! I still need to read A Madness so Discreet, but I did read Not a Drop to Drink and ACOTAR as my first time reads from these authors! Great picks!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  4. Fantastic list! I am kicking myself for not including Mindy McGinnis on my list. I really liked A Madness So Discreet.

    Glad I'm not the only one who hasn't read Throne of Glass yet! As much as I liked A Court of Thorns and Roses I need to put Throne of Glass on my TBR list for next year :)

    Jojo Moyes has become one of my favorite authors. Me Before You is amazing and I also liked After You and One Plus One.

  5. Ooh! I've just bought Hotel Ruby. I love the sound of it (and the cover!!) And I can't wait to read it.

    Great top ten here! :)

  6. Great list! I read Paula Hawkins for the first time this year as well and you can never go wrong with Sarah J. Maas.....love her writing style! I'm glad you read Huntley Fitzpatrick-she is one of my favorites!

  7. Love Sarah J Maas! Hope you enjoy the Throne of Glass books when you read them!
