Top Ten Tuesdays #5 – Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I read in 2017

Hi Bookish Friends,


I’m officially back from the unplanned hiatus I’ve been since before Christmas. My apology to all the late responses. I wanna start this year with a Top Ten Tuesday post. This weekly meme is being hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, though in few weeks, Jana aka That Artsy Reader Girl would be taking over. 🙂

This weeks topic is ten New-to-Me authors of 2017. I’ve discovered so many new authors last year especially that I already started accepting arcs but I’m gonna list those whose books I really liked and will reread this year.

Here they are:

1. Marissa Meyer

I read The Lunar Chronicles series this year and loved them so much, that I also read Meyer’s latest book later last year, Renegades.

2. Leigh Bardugo

Ah, how can I even express how I loved Leigh Bardugo. I really regret not picking up her books sooner. Six of Crows would always be my favorite. 🙂

3. Alice Clayton

4. Loretta Chase

425377This is a surprise. I read just this one novel from this author and really loved it.




5. Julia Quinn

To Historical Romance lovers out there, you can never get wrong with Julia Quinn. Read almost all her novels now and loved them all, but my favorite might be the Bridgertons series.

5. Lisa Kleypas

For new Historical Romance readers, I suggest that you start with Lisa Kleypas. Her Wallflowers series is the best.

6. Cath Crowley

31952703I’ve read Words in Deep Blue around August last year and rated it 5 stars. Really loved it. 🙂

7. Francesca Zappia

Eliza And Her Monsters by: Francesca Zappia

Though I’ve rated this book only 4 out of 5 stars. Francesca Zappia still did a good job with Eliza and Her Monsters and would be one of my recommended YA novels of 2017. The way it portrayed mental health is applaudable. That made this New-to-Me author in this list.

8. Tricia Levenseller

33643994I haven’t heard and read of this author before a fellow bookstagrammer recommended Daughter of the Pirate King to me and I’m excited to read the sequel this year. 🙂

9. Kerri Maniscalco

Yay, Kerri Maniscalco made it on my list of Favorite Authors. Her debut novel Stalking Jack the Ripper and its sequel Hunting Prince Dracula are two of the best books I’ve read last year. Do check them out. Also I just read that title of Book 3 is already revealed. It’s Escaping from Houdini and I’m dying here!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10. R. J. Palacio


Wonder must be one of the most touching story I’ve read last year. The lessons this book taught me are the best.

Okay guys, these are just some of New-to-Me authors I’ve read last year that I really liked. have you read any of their books? Do you like anyone from this list too? Also I’m open to suggestions of new authors or even the underrated ones. 🙂

Happy New year and Happy Reading guys. May we all have the best reading year ahead of us. 🙂

    1. If you liked sherlock Holmes and Watson, you’d like the two leads in Stalking Jack the ripper.. Plus the romance is so cute too. I’m fangirling over the guy. 🙂 🙂 Hope you enjoy it… And Oh Wonder is such a great read for your daughter… She’d learn so much in it. 🙂


    1. Yay.. please do… Though I like her duology Six of Crows more than the Grisha trilogy, the latter is a good introduction to the fictional world that Bardugo created.. Hope you enjoy them… I might have posted reviews about her books. 🙂 And have you read Meyer’s latest? Renegades?..
