Top Ten Tuesday: New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016

December 6
: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016


1. Alexandra Bracken (Passenger) - I have quite a few of Alexandra Bracken's books on my TBR, but Passenger is the first book I read of hers. I'm super excited to read the rest of her books now!

2. Ruta Sepetys (Salt to the Sea) - I had heard many, many good things about Ruta Sepetys, and I was really excited to read something by her! Salt to the Sea did not disappoint, and I have more of her books on my TBR to read now!


3. Jessica Brody (A Week of Mondays) - Jessica Brody is another author whose books have been on my TBR for way too long. A Week of Mondays was great, and I'm definitely a new fan!

4. Nicola Yoon (Everything, Everything) -I was a little late to the Everything, Everything bandwagon, but once I read it, I was hooked! I have The Sun is Also a Star sitting on my shelf, and I hope to get to it soon!


5. Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) - I had this book sitting on my shelf for way too long, and I ended up listening to the audiobook of it instead, and it was SO good! Super excited to get started on Becky's upcoming release now!

6. Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls) - I picked up this book for a Halloween Read, and it ended up being one of the best books I've read this year. I can't wait to read more by Patrick soon!


7. Victoria Schwab (This Savage Song) - Believe it or not, This Savage Song is the first book I've read by Victoria Schwab, even though I have two of her other books sitting on my shelf. I loved it! So excited to read the rest of her books now!

8. Renee Ahdieh (The Wrath & The Dawn) - Another book that I was late to the party for, The Wrath and the Dawn! I'm pretty picky about my retellings, but I LOVED this book, and the sequel is great as well! I'm really looking forward to Renee's next release, Flame in the Mist!


9. Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) - Ahh, I finally read this book after it has been sitting on my shelf for years! And, I enjoyed it so much more than I expected to. I'm super excited to continue the series!

10. William Ritter (Jackaby) - This is another book I picked up for my Halloween Reads week, and I seriously couldn't believe that I hadn't picked up the series sooner. I love it, and I can't wait to read the last book!

There you have it!
