And now we begin the series of posts that has had me curled up in the fetal position, whimpering in the corner. When you read around 350 books in one year, these ‘best books of the year’ posts can easily cover 100 books. Not joking. And that’s just too many books to feature in one post. SO… I had to narrow it down. Slash titles that I really did love. Cut a book here. An author there. Whimpering all the way. (All that to say – if your book isn’t on a list in the next few days, it’s not because I didn’t love it. It’s because I HAD TO LIMIT MYSELF! Argh. Lol.)
Don’t forget – there’s also ALL the books I haven’t read yet. Books whose authors have been infinitely patient with me when life imploded. Books I hope to catch up on in the first couple of months of 2018. (All that to say – if your book isn’t here, I might not have even read it yet. It will probably be on next year’s list lol.)
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday post is all about the authors we read for the first time in 2017 – whether they released their first novel or we finally got around to reading their books. I’ve divided mine into those two categories to make life a little easier. And… don’t bother counting. There are way more than 10 here. But I behaved myself on the rest of the week’s lists 😀
Let’s start with the debut authors! (because they were new to everybody!)
Joanna Davidson Politano
Confession: I haven’t actually read Sarah Hollenbeck yet BUT so many of my bookish friends have been raving about it so I know I will muppet-flail love it when I get a chance to catch up!
Jaime Jo Wright
oops… I haven’t read this one yet either but I know I’m going to love it!
And now for the new-to-me authors that I finally got around to reading – and I’m so glad I did! (just book covers in this section because there’s a lot! And this is the condensed version lol)
Whew! I just love good books, don’t you? 🙂
What about you? What were some of your fave new-to-you authors this year?
