New to Me Authors: July 2022

At the end of each year, I try to put together a list of “New to Me Authors” I read during the year. It takes forever, so I decided to borrow an idea and a graphic from Lucy at Bookworm Blogger.

I will say, many of these new to me authors were wonderful and some have huge backlists, so my TBR is definitely growing.

These are very different stories from one another, with one being Christian Fiction and one being a bit steamy, but all were enjoyable to read or listen to.
