Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
This week’s Top Ten is: New to Me Authors I Read and Loved in 2020.
I am a day late with this post because it took me awhile to go through my 2020 books, select the new authors from books with 4 or 5 stars. Then I had to figure out which ones would I actively seek out their other books, and recommend to others. I read so many wonderful books, but many were not from new authors. I was not able to condense this to just ten. I categorized the authors by the genre.
William Kent Krueger
Viola Shipman (Could also be considered Hist-Fic)
Jessica Redland (I read 8 books this year)
Charlie Donlea (also writes thriller/suspense)
Ragnar Jónasson (Icelandic Noir)
Judi Lynn (Binged the first 4 Jazzi Zanders books)
Humour/Women’s Fiction/Mature Characters
YA Own Voices
So, there you have it. Fourteen Authors that were new to me this year and that I loved. I recommend any and all of these. I had others on my list, but with more investigation, realized that I had read other books by them previous to 2020, which actually helped to condense this down to just fourteen.
So, what authors were on your list?
