top ten tuesday: new-to-me authors of 2017
posted by soe 1:15 am

The penultimate Top Ten Tuesday as hosted by The Broke and the Bookish asks about the top ten new-to-me authors read in 2017.

I was hoping to share my top ten books of the year today, but it’s not ready, but know there’s going to be some overlap here. These are in no particular order, except as how they occurred to me:

  1. Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give)
  2. Kory Stamper (Word by Word), although I have read entries in the dictionary before, so she only counts if we specify that I knowingly read her work.
  3. Nic Stone (Dear Martin)
  4. Heidi Heilig (The Girl from Everywhere)
  5. Mohsin Hamid (Exit West)
  6. Jeannine Atkins (Finding Wonder)
  7. Sherry Thomas (A Study in Scarlet Women)
  8. Kelly Barnhill (The Girl Who Drank the Moon)
  9. Robin Benway (Far from the Tree)
  10. Mackenzi Lee (The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue)

I was going to include Roxane Gay on this list, but then I decided that although I hadn’t previously read any of her books, I had read articles she’d written, so she wasn’t really new to me.

How about you? Any new-to-you authors you enjoyed last year?
