Top Ten Tuesday: New to me Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where each week you make a list to go with that week's bookish theme.

this week's theme: top ten new to me authors i read for the first time in 2016

Why hello everybody! How's December treating you? This week I'm going to be talking about some authors that I read for the very first time this year. So, I've gone searching high and low through my Goodread's shelves, and I have compiled a list! Make sure to leave a link to your TTT post in the comments! :)

~Click on the book covers to go to their Goodread's page!*

1.) Megan Linski

Rhodi's Light (The Rhodi Saga, #1)This was such a fun fantasy book! This was defiantly one of my favorite fantasy novels of the year, and I can't wait to continue on with the series! 















2.) Erin L. Schneider 

Summer of SloaneI defiantly recommend this book! Sloane goes to Hawaii for the summer after her best friend and boyfriend sleep together, and it's all about her discovering herself, and figuring out what she wants to do. This is a very fun book, and I can't wait to read more of Schneider's work! :)













3.) Rosamund Hodge

Cruel Beauty (Cruel Beauty Universe, #1)Yes, Cruel Beauty was my first Hodge book, and I loved it! It is so creative, cool, magical, and fun. I loved the mystery, and and loved her writing style. I can't wait to read more of her work!















4.) Aften Brook Szymanski 

Killer PotentialThis book broke me in all the right places. I was scared, sad, happy, I was a lot of things while reading this book. And then I read the ending, and I just started sobbing. Because OH MY LITTLE CHEESECAKE! GIVE ME A HUG, ALL WILL BE FINE. 














5.) Kurt Dinan

Don't Get CaughtI think that out of all the books on this list, Dinan wrote the funnest one. This book basically takes place in a high school, where an epic prank war breaks out. There are lots of pranks, Leverage references, funny dialog, and cows. You heard me right, cows. I really hope that there's a second book coming out soon!













6.) Jessica Calla

She Runs Away (Sheridan Hall #2)She Laughs In Pink (Sheridan Hall #1)I'm so glad that I get to talk about this author's books! I have read two out of the three that have been released, and they are super fun to read. I've read the first two books in her Sheridan Hall series, an NA romance series. We basically get to see the members of the Sheridan Hall basement find love, and it's adorable and makes my feel things. <3







7.) Roshani Chokshi 

The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen, #1)
I loved The Star-Touched Queen! It was so creative, and fun to read! This was defiantly a good book, and I can't wait to read her future works!














 8.) Claire Legrand 

Winterspell (Winterspell, #1)This was my the first, and only, Nutcracker retelling! I loved this, not only because I danced in The Nutcracker for years, but because this book was so much fun. There's adventure, action, magic, romance, and a really interesting story line. I'm defiantly glad that I picked this one up.













9.) John Corey Whaley

Highly Illogical BehaviorI read Highly Illogical Behavior a couple weeks after it came out, so there was a lot of hype surrounding this book. And let me tell you, this book was absolutely fabulous! I loved every minuet of this book, and I cannot wait to read Whaley's other novels.














10.) India R. Adams

Blue Waters (Tainted Water #1)Serenity (Forever, #1)Now you may be asking, "Hasn't she talked about these books enough?" Your answer, NEVER. I am so glad that I have read Adams books! Funny story, I read Serenity because I signed up for a blog tour about it, and I was actually debating whether or not I should read it! I almost didn't sign up. I'm so, so, so glad that I did. :)

  1. At some point I need to read Cruel Beauty, and also I'm curious about Winterspell. Re-tellings are common, but I don't know that I've ever seen a re-telling for The Nutcracker. :)

  2. I'm not doing very well today as I've barely known any of the authors people are including.... and none of yours either!

  3. I love the look of Winterspell and Erin Schneider's book looks great too. And the MEgan Linski one looks like an interesting fantasy.

  4. This is a fab list:). I entirely endorse your choice of Roshani Chokshi - I also read this book and loved the prose and some of the quirky characters. More to the point - the book has STAYED with me throughout the year, which is always important to me (I have the memory of a goldfish). Ones I would to like to read in 2017 - Winterspell and Cruel Beauty.
