Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013

(images taken from author’s Goodreads profiles)

C.J. Archer

1. CJ Archer

CJ blew me away with her Freak House books, a beautiful YA historical paranormal trilogy I fell head over heels for. I quickly became a fangirl bordering on the stalkerish.

R.L. LaFevers

2. Robin LaFevers

While Grave Mercy was so heavy I had to wait until I could read it all in one go, I did really like it and it helped confirm my new love for YA historical fiction (with paranormal elements, of course!).


3. Elizabeth C Bunce

I was absolutely blown away by the audiobook version of A Curse Dark as Gold and I want to get my hands on the Thief Errant series ASAP!

Peggy Eddleman

4. Peggy Eddleman

Peggy’s MG adventure book Sky Jumpers stood out as one of the best MG books I’ve ever read.

Louise Rozett

5. Louise Rozett

She broke my heart in Confessions of an Angry Girl and stomped all over it in Confessions of as Almost-Girlfriend. All the feels.

Sarra Manning

6. Sarra Manning

Adorkable has not only a realistic relationship, an achingly real sex scene, and a boy I swoon over (which is rare, I guarantee!) but the dual narrators of the audiobook really brought it to life for me. Bliss.

Nicola Marsh

7. Nicola Marsh

I read Nicola’s YA debut Banish, and I felt secure and comfortable in the hands of an experienced professional. Thanks!

index8. Lolita Lopez

I don’t know if Lolita Lopez is her real name (a pseudonym is Roxie Rivera) but Ms Lopez got me reading erotica with her Dragon Heat (shifters) novella series. I really enjoyed it!

Aimee Carter

9. Aimee Carter

I liked The Goddess Test however the following books in the series were severe disappointments.

Jill Wolfson

10. Jill Wolfson

I remember going through a Furies phase because I love mean girl stories, and Furious didn’t disappoint!

      Oh, it’s really good! If you liked the first one you’ll definitely like the second one! It made me so weepy with all the feels.

    1. Nemo

      That IS incredible! But we don’t really have compatible taste, Lexxie, so that’s OK. You should definitely check some out, though.

  1. Maureen Eichner

    Yes, Elizabeth Bunce! Her books are so amazing. I keep hoping she’ll manage to get something else published.

    1. Nemo

      Yeah I know the third book in the Thief Errant series was cancelled, but I wonder why she doesn’t self-publish it. I’m sure there’s a market for it. wasn’t the second book a cliffhanger? (so I’ve heard)
