Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.   

This week's topic is:
Top Ten Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013
*These are in no particular order!

Foreplay (The Ivy Chronicles, #1)Two Boys KissingAll Our Yesterdays (All Our Yesterdays #1)
Thousand WordsThe Beautiful and the Cursed (The Dispossessed, #1)Golden
The Archived (The Archived, #1)Altered (Altered, #1)My Life After Now
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (Between, #1)Eleanor & Park
1. Sophie Jordan: Although she wasn't particularly NEW to ME, she was new to the NA genre, and she totally rocked my socks off with Foreplay

2. David Levithan: Every time I said I had never read a book by him all my blogger friends gave me the O_o look, so I just decided it was time! 

3. Cristin Terrill: Dude, All Our Yesterdays is amazingly entertaining. I can't wait to see what else she has up her sleeve! 

4. Jennifer Brown: I heard about Thousand Words when I asked for some recommendations on contemps with some bigger issues behind it. And once I read this one, I found out that ALL her contemps are like that. So, I promptly went and added everything she wrote to my TBR pile! 

5. Page Morgan: In my review for The Beautiful and the Cursed, I called it, "a poster for paranormal romance." I think its safe to say any other book she writes, I will be reading. 

6. Jessi Kirby: I had heard about her books before and had added them to my TBR, but I just never got around to them. But finally, I was able to get my hands on something by her and I loved every second of it. 

7. Victoria Schwab: Dude, if you haven't read The Archived, you need to hurry and get on that. This was the first book I've read by her and let me tell you, it was soooo good! So much so I added everything that she wrote to my TBR pile!

8. Jennifer Rush: Altered FLOORED me. I stayed up until 4 am reading that book. All the twists and turns had me ready to read anything with her name on it. 

9. Jessica Verdi: She wrote an amazing book about something we all need to know about but didn't do it in a preachy/teachy sort of way. If she writes anything else like that it would make my life! 

10. April Genevieve Tucholke: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea had some amazing writing! I loved the way it flowed and it was also a really good story. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see what else she has in store. 

11. Rainbow Rowell: Eleanor and Park and her most recent release of FanGirl have both stuck with me. They were both super amazing and I can't wait for the rest of her work. 

What new to you authors did you enjoy?!


  1. Cristin Terrill made my list too!

  2. The only author I know here is Sophie Jordan! But more because of her HR genre books than NA.

  3. Jennifer Brown is one of my fav's. If you haven't read Hate List yet, it's REALLY good. I also can't wait to read more Rainbow Rowell. I read Fangirl and became obsessed. I need to read Eleanor & Park! Love your list!!
