My 2015 New-To-Me Favourite Authors

Just how quickly has 2015 gone by?! I can’t believe the year is almost over, and it really doesn’t feel that long ago since I wrote up the 2014 version of this post. 2015 hasn’t been my best reading or blogging year: I’ve been flitting between reading and blogging slumps and just when I conquer one, the other comes along to taunt me. Over the year I’ve read more sequels to series I love, or other books from authors I know I’ve liked in the past and as a result I’ve read fewer new-to-me authors than I usually do. But, I HAVE found 7 new favourites, so it’s definitely not all gloomy! This list isn't in any particular order - all of them will appear on my auto-buy list in the future!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish, and the topic this week is “Top Ten New-To-Me Favourite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015”.

Elizabeth May

Read: The Falconer and The Vanishing Throne

Sarah Rees Brennan

Read: Unspoken, Untold, Unmade, and all the novellas from The Lynburn Legacy.

Marie Ruthkoski

Read: The Winner’s Curse (And I plan to read The Winner’s Crime before the end of the year!)

James Dawson

Read: Say Her Name and Hollow Pike

Sabaa Tahir

Read: An Ember in the Ashes

Mary E. Pearson

Read: The Kiss of Deception and The Heart of Betrayal

Sara Raasch

Read: Snow Like Ashes
