Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2012:
I discovered the Eden’s Root Trilogy earlier this year and it’s amazing! This trilogy completely sucked me in and kept me guessing; I’m excited for the last book in the trilogy, Emergence, to come out soon!
After I read 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, it became one of my favorite books and Jessica became one of my favorite authors. Jessica wrote so many lines that were powerful, funny, and perfectly described how I’ve felt at times. Her next book, Unremembered, is one of my most anticipated reads of 2013!
3. Elise Stokes
Elise’s books are packed with action-adventure, hilarious scenes, and enough surprises to keep you guessing! I absolutely adore the plotline and characters of the Cassidy Jones Adventures and can’t wait to see what happens next! You can see my interview with Elise here.
Okay, so I’m kind of bending the rules on this one: How My Summer Went Up in Flames comes out next year. However, I received an ARC and this book has got to be one of my most favorite books I’ve read all year. Jennifer wrote a fantastic story and I loved the main character’s voice; you’ll want to buy this book as soon as it comes out!
I loved Scarlet and how the main character was such a strong, kick-butt girl! I just heard the announcement from A. C.’s blog that Scarlet will be a trilogy so there will be two more Scarlet books; I’m very excited to see the synopsis for the next book! You can read my interview with A. C. here.
6. Alberto Corral
My Monster Burrufu has got to be the most charming, whimsical, adorable, and heartfelt book I’ve read all year. It’s the sweetest book ever, perfect for anyone wanting a fun book with a lot of heart. You can see my review of My Monster Burrufu here.
I’m so glad that I read Kathy’s Don’t Expect Magic, it’s become one of my favorite YA books! Kathy’s created such a fun and sarcastic voice for the main character and I’m early awaiting her next book, Who Needs Magic!
8. Jane Singer
The language in Alias Dragonfly was as rich as the historical setting and the plot was full of adventure. Jane filled this book with excitement and romance, all in a historical setting. I’ll definitely keep my eye out for more books from this author!
Lizzie’s writing was so hilarious and heartfelt, and she created such wonderful characters! I just adored her writing style; I can’t wait to see what Lizzie will write next, I’ll definitely be picking it up!
10. Elise Broach
Elise’s books Masterpiece and Shakespeare’s Secret were such fantastic reads that I definitely recommend!
