Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite New to Me Authors So Far in 2021

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2021. A couple weeks ago we gave our Summer TBR. There were a bunch of the same books that would have crossed over for today’s topic, so I decided to do something else. My topic is:

  1. I have only read two of these authors, TJ Klune and Julia Quinn. It is so wonderful to find a new author to follow.

    1. I have only read 2 of Snowe’s books, but I hope to read more. The first was her Moo U book, which I think is a great starting point.

  2. Yay for TJ Klune! I definitely want to read more by him this year. And I never read Julia Quinn, but I really want to try her Bridgerton series after loving the tv show 🙂

  3. I just bought the Bridgerton series for super cheap! I have had the first book for a while and still need to read it!! Great list.

  4. Chloe Leise is a fairly recent discovery for me too. Her books are so good though.

    If Julia Quin is on the list does this mean you’re diving into historical romance?

    1. They are! I love them!
      Well, I dabble in historical romance every once in a while. I mostly listened to this series because I wanted to do that before I watched the show. I might listen to another of her series at some point. I don’t think it’s something I will do regularly.

    1. ??? My post this week was my favorite new to me authors. Your comment doesn’t make sense.

  5. Glad you discovered some new authors whose work you enjoy. I hope the second half of the year will lead to more wonderful discoveries.

  6. It’s amazing how many different books get published all the time. I think I have only seen one of the books on my list so far and also no other double ones. Hope you’ll get all of yours and enjoy them.

    My TTT.

    1. Thanks! I read Melissa Williams because you liked her book.
      That Kim Jones’ book was funny. Some of her others are darker.

  7. Yay for T.J. Klune! I really want to read that series by Chloe Liese and I need to get back on track with a few books I haven’t read yet in the Moo U series, including Holdout. Great list, Deanna. 🙂
