Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Broke & The Bookish, this week the theme is: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016. I have read a lot of books this past year, and I have discovered so many authors. During the summer I discovered BookTube which left me with a gigantic TBR because there were so many amazing books that I had never heard of before that!
Here are 10 authors I discovered in 2016
- Alice Oseman. //Contemporary YA//
- Jane Austen. //Classics//
Of course well known for her Pride & Prejudice, which was by far my favourite classic I read this year, but also wrote quite some other novels, of which I read a few with the Austentations book club.
- Nicola Yoon. //Contemporary YA//
- Marissa Meyer. //Fantasy/sci-fi YA//
This is one of my favourite writers right now, because I loved The Lunar Chronicles and can’t wait to read Heartless!
- Andy Weir. //Sci-fi//
The Martian was so funny and such a great sci-fi book, I loved it!
- Morgan Matson. //Contemporary YA//
I have read Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour such a long time ago, but I rediscovered Morgan Matson this year when I read Since You’ve Been Gone.
- Pittacus Lore. //Sci-fi YA//
Well-known for the book/movie I Am Number Four, I am dying to read the rest of the Lorien Legacies!
- Mary E. Pearson //Fantasy YA//
Her Remnant Chronicles series is one of my favourite series of this year! The series consists of The Kiss of Deception, The Heart of Betrayal and The Beauty of Darkness.
- Renee Ahdier //Fantasy YA//
- Alexandra Bracken //Fantasy YA//
During the summer I read Passenger, which is an awesome book about time travel.
- Marie Lu //Dystopic YA//
I have read the first book in her series, Legend, which was surprising and very interesting because you had two very opposing viewpoints.
