Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is authors I read for the first time in 2018. I read quite a few new-to-me authors last year, including some that are really popular around the blogosphere. I can't say I would read all of them again, but many I would!
I enjoyed Denise Kiernan's nonfiction books; although I didn't love them, I would seek her out again.
Kate Andersen Brower's The Residence was one of my favorites of the year; now I want to read her books about First Ladies and Vice Presidents.
I did it, guys, I finally read Six of Crows; don't hate me, I didn't really like it! But I finally read a Leigh Bardugo book, so points for that!
I finally checked out Fiona Davis and her historical fiction novels set in NYC; thankfully she also has a new book coming out in 2019!
I don't know why I didn't read Susanna Kearsley earlier; her books have so many elements I love. I will definitely be checking out more of her backlist in the future.
Prince in Disguise was one of my favorites of the year, so I'm looking forward to reading more from Stephanie Kate Strohm!
I loved Arthur Pepper and was so excited to find out Phaedra Park not only had another backlist book, but a new title coming this year!
Pierce Brown is another beloved author around the blogosphere that I finally read in 2018, but I don't think I'll continue with the Red Rising series.
I've had Bethany Chase's books on my TBR for awhile and made a point to read them this year. She reminded me of some of my other favorite "chick lit" authors, and I would love to read more from her!
The Thousandth Tower was such a fun, soapy read. I want to continue Katharine McGee's series!
