Top Ten Tuesday

Top 10 Tuesday: Authors I Found in 2018

TTT-Big2

I found several authors that I had not read yet last year, and there were a few that really stood out to me.  This week’s theme from That Artsy Reader Girl is New To Me Authors I read in 2018.

Jacqueline Susann

I read and fell absolutely in LOVE with Valley of the Dolls.  I definitely want to check out Susann’s other books to see if they’re just as entertaining and addicting.

Stephanie Perkins

I put off reading Anna and the French Kiss for a long time because of the hype surrounding it, and I am so glad I finally read it.  Such a great, heart-warming romance with a smoldering build up.  I loved it and can’t wait to read the rest.

Laurie Forest

I read both The Black Witch and The Iron Flower by Laurie Forest last year, and I cannot wait for the third book.  It is such a great series with incredible world building and complex characters.

Morgan Matson

I really loved Save the Date.  It was such a sweet and refreshing story about family and growing up, and I totally connected to the characters and writing style.  I got another Matson book for Christmas, and I’m excited to see if I like her other work just as much.

Tahehreh Mafi

I started reading the Shatter Me series last year, and I enjoy it a lot.  What really hooked me was the novellas from Warner’s perspective.  He is probably one of my favorite villains ever, and I’m so looking forward to seeing what happens next.

Rainbow Rowell

Carry On was one of my favorite books of the year, and I am dying for the upcoming sequel.  My sister is also a huge Rainbow Rowell fan, so I have faith that I will enjoy the rest of her books too.

Alice Hoffman

The Rules of Magic was, without a doubt, my favorite book of the year.  I started with Practical Magic (a movie that I love), and was slightly underwhelmed, but The Rules of Magic really blew me away.  Definitely a book I want to reread and one I recommend to everyone.

Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

The Illuminae Files were out of this world.  Literally.  I still can’t get over how much I loved them.

Stephanie Garber

I was late on the Caraval train, but it really grabbed me.  I read the sequel, Legendary, as well, and I am anxiously awaiting Finale.

Dhonielle Clayton

I LOVED The Belles.  It was such a unique and interesting world that completely fascinated me.  I have an ARC of the next book, The Everlasting Rose (EEEEEE!! Still freaking out about this!), and I cannot wait to see where the story is going to go.


I cannot wait for all of the new authors I can discover in 2019! Leave me some of your favorites in the comments so I can add them to the list! 🙂

  1. Every time I see another Carry On fan I want to shriek in delight but I also have to say you’ve got me incredibly curious about some books/authors on your list namely Laurie Forest, Morgan Matson, and Dhonielle Clayton. I actually have The Black Witch and The Belles on my tbr list and I’ve always been curious about Morgan Matson. I mean, it’s kind of hard not to be curious about Morgan Matson since she’s basically everywhere on booktube.
