TTTimageTop New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

fave-authors-header I ended up narrowing this down quite a bit! I read a good amount of 2016 debut books AND a lot of “established” authors for the first time. Here are some of my favorites from this year, plus the next book I have to read by them. Some authors I read their newest book and have to go back to the previously published one next, and some were debuts who have a new book coming out soonish.asI was a huge fan of History is All You Left Me, which I read waaay back in the summer even though the book doesn’t come out until January. It was fantastic, so I need to head back and read his debut next.jbTell Me Three Things was definitely a 2016 favorite. I loved her style of writing and that cover always makes me hungry! She has a few adult fiction books on her backlist I may read, but I love the sound of her 2017 book.jlbOMG The Fixer and The Long Game were so perfect. They broke me out of a major slump and kept me turning pages like crazy. I have to read her other series at some point in the near future because I neeeed it.jmtThe Wrong Side of Right was a really quiet release, I think, and it took me forever to read it (even though I owned it!). I was a huge fan of the writing, so I’m intrigued to see what her next book is all about.kkqI was pleasantly surprised by Down With the Shine this year. It’s a bit out of my comfort zone, but it actually spurred a magical realism kick for me. I had her previous book on my TBR forever, so now I’ll bump it up I hope!
sdhI looooved We Are The Ants. It was a really kind of heartbreaking and emotional story, but I loved every second of it. I’m eager to read more books by him because they all have super unique premises.sjEeeek. Reign of Shadows got fairly mixed reviews (some of us loved it and others definitely did not). It was the perfect light-ish fantasy for me, so I’m eager to read the next installment VERY soon. (ARC on the way!)threeWanderlost, Firsts, and True Letters from a Fictional Life were all 4-5 star reads for me in 2016, so I’m WAITING ANXIOUSLY to see what each of these authors have planned for 2017 and beyond! I haven’t seen any book updates on Goodreads, so we’ll see. Fingers crossed!

  1. Ahhh, I have literally all of these on my TBR – thanks for reminding me of everything I have yet to read, haha – but I’ve only read Reign of Shadows (so I’m eager for Rise of Fire too!). I really need to read an Adam Silvera or Kate Karyus Quinn book asap. They all sounds amazing.

    Oh, and Jen Malone has a book called Changes in Latitudes coming out next year. Just FYI!

  2. I definitely think Tell Me Three Things is a delightful read, and I’m so, so excited for What to Say Next. Also, I’m definitely interested in seeing what Jen Malone will be releasing next! I thought Wanderlost was a lovely, fun read too 🙂

  3. Jen Malone and Kate Karyus Quinn made my (non-existent) list too! Also, Jen does have a new book coming out in 2017, Changes in Latitudes! And I LOVE Adam’s book, cannot wait for the next one (well, can’t wait until I get a chance to read it hah) and Sophie Jordan’s too! Great choices!

  4. I just read Tell Me Three Things and holy crap, that was a great book. I need to read everything that author has ever written. And I am so looking forward to Adam Silvera’s new book. I still have not read Down with the Shine. It’s on my Kindle, I just haven’t gotten to it yet. Glad you loved that one. Great list!
