Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2012

*images taken from author’s Goodreads profiles.

1. Maria Snyder

After reading Touch of Power early this year, I fell in love with Snyder’s writing and her characters. I quickly hunted down Inside Out and borrowed Poison Study from my library. I look forward to each of her books and one day I will have read them all.

2. Shirley Marr

Adorable Perth-born Marr has written two books – the mean girls Fury and the 80s ghost romance Preloved. I enjoyed them both and I look forward to Marr’s next project.

3. Malinda Lo

Lo’s subtle romance Ash was a Cinderella retelling. I have Huntress, I am just waiting until I am in the right mood to read it. i really enjoyed Lo’s writing and her imagination.

4. Suzanne Collins

I didn’t read The Hunger Games until just before the film was released. i thought it was amazing. I have since finished the trilogy and I am already looking forward to re-reading it, as well as watching the film every chance I get.

5. Kat Zhang

Zhang’s moving What’s Left of Me was billed as His Dark Materials meets Girl, Interrupted. How could I refuse? I couldn’t, and Eva’s story touched me deeply.

6. Heather Dixon

Entwined was my favourite book of 2012. Dixon needs to release another book. I will give her my money.

7. Marissa Meyer

Another Cinderella retelling, this time a cyberpunk version. It was surprisingly good and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

8. Lauren DeStefano.

Her writing is perfection. Enough said.

9. Laini Taylor

I had no idea what I was getting into with Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I liked it!

10. Aprilynne Pike

A very guilty pleasure of mine, I found the Wings series to be strangely addictive.
