Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013
(images taken from author’s Goodreads profiles)
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.
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!
4. Peggy Eddleman
Peggy’s MG adventure book Sky Jumpers stood out as one of the best MG books I’ve ever read.
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.
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.
7. Nicola Marsh
I read Nicola’s YA debut Banish, and I felt secure and comfortable in the hands of an experienced professional. Thanks!
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!
9. Aimee Carter
I liked The Goddess Test however the following books in the series were severe disappointments.
10. Jill Wolfson
I remember going through a Furies phase because I love mean girl stories, and Furious didn’t disappoint!
