Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, you make a list of ten books surrounding a certain topic. This week is all about the authors that were new to you in 2014. It could be authors who have been writing and publishing books for years yet you have only read your first book by them in 2014. I’ve mentioned the author at the beginning of the title and then the book I’ve read by him/her. Hope you enjoy my list. Let’s do this!
- Nina LaCour, Everything Leads to You
I really enjoyed this one, it’s very different from other YA romance novels -in my opinion.
- Alexandra Bracken, The Darkest Minds
So much hype around this book and all I have to say is that it’s well deserved. Really well written!
- Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire
Brandon Sanderson is just a master of fantasy. His skill seeps out of every word and sentence. it’s just masterful. I’m making it my mission in life to read every one of his books.
- Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass
I will read every single thing this amazing author writes. EVERYTHING.
- Morgan Matson, Since You’ve Been Gone
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I think the author wrote about important aspects of being a teenager and love that are often left out: friends, family and being the best person you can be.
- Benjamin Alire Saénz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
I just have no words for the awesomeness that is this book. It’s just out-of-this world.
- Charlie N. Holmberg, The Paper Magician
A recent discovery! I highly enjoyed the first two books in the Paper Magician trilogy, I thought they were really well written.
- Scott Lynch, The Lies of Locke Lamora
Another master of fantasy. The world and characters that Scott Lynch has created are fantastic.
- Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
This was one of the most unique books I’ve ever read! I would recommend this one to every book lover out there. The story stayed suspenseful and you didn’t know what was going to end up happening. His writing… I just can’t find the words.
- Kasie West, Pivot Point
Another pleasant surprise! This duology was well written, suspenseful and exciting. I will definitely read more of her work!
That is my list for this week! Have you read any of these books or made a list yourself? Put the link in the comments below, I’d love to check them out.
