Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2017. Pretty simple, but hard to narrow down. Here are my top ten.
1. Emma Scott
I requested Emma Scott’s Full Tilt duet off NetGalley because I loved the covers and the blurb sounded good, too. I had no clue what I was in for. I love Emma Scott’s beautifully emotional writing.
2. Kennedy Ryan
I have to thank Ari from The New Romantics for making me read the Grip series. It was one of the best series I read in 2017, and so timely. Kennedy Ryan is a master with words.
I don’t always fall in love with Tijan’s books, but the ones I do love hit me hard. She makes me fall in love with characters I would normally hate. She also infuses every book with so much angst and emotion. I am so happy to have found her this year!
4. Jamie Howard
I saw one of Jamie Howard’s Love Unplugged books on Cristina from My Tiny Obessions’ blog. It sounded like something I would like, so I decided to read it. I’m so happy I did!
5. Mignon Mykel
When Mignon Mykel emailed and asked me to read one of her hockey novels, I was excited. I love a great sports romance. I was pleasantly surprised by her writing. She’s quickly becoming one of my favorite hockey romance writers.
I’ve only read Dear Aaron, but I can’t wait to get my hands on more books from Marina Zapata. I loved her writing!
7. Jenn Bennett
I’m always looking for great YA contemporary authors. I was happy to have found one in Jenn Bennett. Her stories are cute, but filled with so much heart.
8. L.J. Shen
Sometimes, I just want a darker romance read. L.J. Shen delivers exactly what I like. Her stories are raw and gritty.
I’m not exactly new to Jen Frederick. I read her collaborations with Elle Kennedy as Erin Watt last year. This year, I introduced myself to a couple of her other series. I loved them!
10. Penny Reid
Penny Reid is another author I’m not entirely new to. She has a series with L.H. Cosway that I adore. This fall, I read her Winston Brothers series. I loved it so much! I need to read more of her solo projects.
Have you read any of these authors? Did they make your list?
