Top Ten Tuesday: New (to me) Authors I Discovered & Loved in 2019

Posted January 14, 2020 by meezcarrie in Christian, Top Ten Tuesday / 12 Comments


Happy Tuesday, dear friends! Today for Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl), we’re talking about bookish discoveries we made in 2019. So I thought it would be the perfect time to share some new to me authors who I read for the first time – and loved – last year! Some were debut authors & some were authors whose books I just hadn’t read yet.

    One of my top picks was Whose Waves These Are!
    I just finished the two that Abigail Wilson has out. Loved them but was disappointed at the thin faith thread. Still looking forward to her next book.
    Elizabeth Musser and Susie Finkbeiner were stellar new authors for me.
    I won that book by Heather Norman Smith and look forward to it. I also mean to read Rachel Fordham’s two books. I have heard a lot of Mimi Matthews, she sounds great!
    So much good stuff out there!
