TTT: Favorite New-to-Me Authors (Last Half of 2020)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. There is a new topic each week for bloggers to join in with their own top ten. If you’re looking for some new or different book blogs to read, hop on over to her site and check out some of the links.

I’m whittling down this week’s Top Ten Tuesday to the last half of 2020. Actually, the last 5 months. That’s because back at the end of July 2020 we had a TTT freebie. At that time I did a post on Favorite New-to-Me Authors in 2020 that went from January through July. That means the following 11 authors were new to me from August through December of 2020.

As with that previous post, I’m only including those that garnered a 4 or higher rating from me. I’m listing the author along with the first book I read by that author. I’m listing them as a countdown so the list ends with my favorite of the bunch.

  2. I’ve never actually read any of Holly Bourne’s books which feels like a bit of an oversight since she’s so big in the UKYA community.

      I had never heard of her until this book, which is definitely not a YA book. But when I looked into her I saw that’s mostly what she writes.

      • Yeah she’s gone into adult books fairly recently, I think that one was her first or second? Not sure. I might actually try her adult stuff because it sounds more appealing than her YA.

    Sadly, I didn’t care much for Beach Read and found it rather overhyped :/ Happy reading! https://readwithstefani.com/popular-books-i-did-not-finish/

      It took me a bit to get into that one, but once I did I loved the story. I think I had expectations of one thing so it took me a bit to change my expectations once I started reading.

  4. The Roommate was my favorite debut of last year. I’m glad we both found it and Danan.

    I haven’t read these, but I love the cover for Here to Stay! It made me smile. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
