Top Ten Tuesday (4): Favorite New-To-Me Authors in 2012

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 § 9 Comments

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish:
This week is your favourite authors that are new to you this year. Here's my list in no particular order.
  1. Rainbow Rowell: I've had Attachments in my eReader for a very long time, but it wasn't until Eleanor & Park that I started to read Rowell's work. After reading it, I told myself that I have to get on Attachments, because she's an amazing writer. I immediately went to see if she has any more books coming out. Luckily, Fangirl will be out next year!
  2. Suzanne Collins: Yes, I'm one of those people that got into The Hunger Games only after I heard there was going to be a movie. I'd heard of it before that, but I didn't bother to pick it up for a reason that I can't remember anymore. I'm really happy I finally gathered my wits and started reading the trilogy.
  3. Kady Cross: A book store employee at my regular book store recommended the Steampunk Chronicles to me after we talked about some favourite YA titles we had in common. I'm super thankful to her for introducing me to the Steampunk genre, because I was totally blind to it prior.
  4. Gail Carriger: The same employee recommended the Parasol Protectorate series after I asked if there was a Steampunk book that wasn't YA, and I instantly fell in love with the first 2 books. I've yet to read the others, but I'm looking forward to finally getting into them.
  5. Marissa Meyer: Cinder was one of those books that I picked up solely for the cover art. It's gorgeous. Then I read it and the story made me love the whole thing even more. Marissa wrote with this style that just pulled me in and I could barely form coherent thoughts after reading.
  6. Scott Westerfeld: I bought Uglies-- again, as with the case of Cinder-- because the cover was pretty. It was just so white and eerie and the layout of the whole thing just intrigued me. After reading Uglies I had to buy the rest of the series immediately. I also picked up Leviathan without knowing it was written by him as well, funnily enough.
  7. Cassandra Clare: As if I don't mention her enough on this blog. I only started The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices this past summer, even though I've had the first books of each series sitting on my book shelf for well over a year. I'm glad I finally picked them up. Because I'm obsessed. Like please-get-me-professional-help obsessed.
  8. Ellen Hopkins: Every time I walked into the YA section, I had always passed by her books and was intrigued by the covers and titles. I finally decided to pick one up and was surprised to find what was inside. I've never been fond of verse until I read Impulse, and after that I had to go get more of her books. I currently have about 5 sitting on my shelves.
  9. Tara Lynn Childs: I've had one of her other books on my TBR list since 2011, but I actually started reading Medusa Girls in October and fell in love. Since then I've added more books by her to my list. Sweet Venom and Sweet Shadows made me want to actually start reading Oh. My. Gods. even more, and I swear, I'll get to it asap. Can't wait.
  10. Karen Marie Moning: I started really, really late on the Fever series, which is a shame because I'm currently in love with it. Of course I'd heard of the series (as it seems is the case with most of my list, lol), but I never got around to reading the first book until October. I'm really excited to get further into the other books.

What's this?

    I would kill to have the chance to experience reading The Hunger Games for the first time again! I LOVE Suzanne Collins' writing!
    And yay for Kady Cross and Tera Lynn Childs (wasn't Sweet Vemon awesome? :) )!

    I definitely would have put Cassandra Clare Suzanne Collins on my list if I hadn't already discovered them in 2011! Love their work :) And I hope I can add Gail Carriger and Kady Cross to my list in 2013 - I have the Parasol Protectorate boxed set sitting on my shelf and hope to get to it over the holidays :D Great list! The authors I haven't read yet are ones I've wanted to read for quite a while. Thanks for stopping by my post :)

  • I was also very late with The Hunger Games and I'm currently busy in the third book from The mortal Instrument :) I love the series so far. I adored Cinder, so Marissa Meyer is also on my list. I hope that I can add Kady Cross & Gail Carriger to my list soon!
