This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) is a little hard for me. My TBR list is so long and I’m always so far behind everyone else on new releases or new authors! However, after a little brain-racking (and GR perusing), I did manage to come up with a list of seven newish authors I’ve read that have definitely made me crave more. If you have any debut authors you’ve really enjoyed, please leave me a comment and let me know—I always love finding new authors and books to devour!
William Ritter (Jackaby and Beastly Bones): I picked up Jackaby on a whim last year and loved it! Beastly Bones was just published and I need to go to the library to pick it up. I’m a sucker for anything Sherlock-esque and the supernatural bent just made it even better!
Natasha Pulley (The Watchmaker of Filigree Street): This was an uneven book for me but was intriguing enough that I’d really like to see another book by the author.
Eowyn Ivey (The Snow Child): Easily one of my best reads of 2015 and highly recommended to anyone who loves magical realism!
John Darnielle (Wolf in White Van): I can’t even wrap my head around the intricacies of the plotting. Blew me away.
John Scalzi (Lock In): An awesome sci-fi novel that even a non-sci-fi-fan could appreciate, thanks to an easy flow of writing and no technical jargon info-dumps.
Allie Brosh (Hyperbole and a Half): Apparently the sequel is due out next year!!! Brosh is hilarious but also wise, and a wonderful storyteller.
Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus): I’ve been handed a lot of other books that are supposedly like The Night Circus and none have been nearly as magical. Sigh.
