Top Ten Tuesday #5: New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014

 Top 10 Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish
You may have noticed, but I haven’t posted for the last few Tuesdays… Sorry! Here is my Top Ten for this week! The best New-to-me authors I read in 2014! 
Emma Healey
As you can tell from my last post (IE THE GIST: Elizabeth Is Missing) I loved Healey’s work. Eagerly awaiting her next novel. 
Tom Rachman
I read The Rise & Fall of Great Powers this summer and adored it. I am definitely going to buy Rachman’s next book, and read his last! 
MR Carey
The Girl With All the Gifts. Hello. That book was fab. 
Jonathan Tropper
I read This is Where I Leave You in anticipation of the film adaptation. I really enjoyed it! It was poignant, witty, and funny, and I will have to read more of Tropper’s work. 
Kelley Armstrong
I read Omens earlier in the year and loved it. I bought the second in the series, Visions, the day it came out!
Joanna Hickson
I did a book tour for her novel The Agincourt Bride. It was so good. I love royal historical fiction!
Chevy Stevens
A friend recommended this author to me. I read three of her books this year and have another in my TBR pile!
Heather Gudenkauf
I read two of her books this year and really enjoyed them. They had a hint of Jodi Picoult to them!
SJ Watson
Before I Go To Sleep was one of the best books I read this year. Thrillers are my fav. 
Kimberly McCreight 
Again, Reconstructing Amelia is one of the best books I read this year. I’m on the book tour for McCreight’s next novel! So excited! Check back in 2015 for more info. 
Those are my top ten. What about you?

  • Beth, I really enjoyed Reconstructing Amelia too — I'm on the tour for her next book too. I'd like to read it now (downloaded it from Edelweiss) but I'm worried about reading it too far ahead and forgetting key details, so I'm waiting!

  • When I am reading for a review I generally jot down key points in a notebook. If you did that and did like, a skeleton review to be polished later, maybe it wouldn't matter too much if you read it in advance? I'll have to remember that you're on the tour too and read your review 🙂
