Top Ten New-to-Me Authors of Books I Read in 2014
My big reading years pre-college consisted of mostly binge-reading Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and Private. Up until this year, those were three major authors I loved to read books by (because they had so damn many books out!). I feel like most of the authors on this list are new-to-me but very NOT new to anyone else who has been reading a lot in recent years. 2014 has been the biggest reading year for me since middle school, so here are ten authors I am now extremely excited to read books by.
- I know I’m a little late to the Rainbow Rowell party (and frankly, I’ve barely shown up considering that I’ve only read one book by her.)
- Sarah Ockler and Emery Lord are two authors I’m anxiously awaiting the new releases from. I should also probably get going on Ockler’s other released books, because I really loved her writing style.
- Morgan Matson, who easily became one of my favorite authors, also writes under the name Katie Finn. I still need to read those, too!
- I love that Kasie West writes both contemporary books (which I love) and parallel life books (which I double love). I need to get my butt in gear and read her other books, considering how she’s a perfect fit author for me.
- Stephanie Perkins – need I say more?
- I’ve seen a lot of great things about Gayle Forman‘s other books and I really enjoyed her writing style from the two books I’ve read, but I’m definitely not as obsessed as others. I liked Where She Went better than If I Stay, so I want to see if she can wow me!
- I don’t have any excuses as to why I haven’t read more books by Liz Czukas, now that I have an ARC of When Joss Met Matt (under her pseudonym) and Top Ten Clues was recently released.
- Leigh Bardugo and Miranda Kenneally have many released books in their respective series that I haven’t gotten to yet. Since I’m reading The Grisha Trilogy as a buddy-read, I have some gaps between books. Kenneally, on the other hand, writes the best romances and I can’t wait to get going on the rest of the Hundred Oaks series next year.
