Today's list is: 

Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016

One of my reading challenges for 2016 was to discover at least five new authors. My current tally shows that I am up to 13 new authors, and there are a few more to add to the list! Here are my favourites:

Beg for Mercy by Jami Alden (5/5 stars)

Scars by Cheryl Rainfield (5/5 stars)

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel (4/5 stars)

And the rest in no particular order:

Monster Island by David Wellington (3/5 stars)

The Haunted by Bentley Little (4/5 stars)

Looking for Alaska by John Green (4/5 stars)

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (4/5 stars)

So, who are your favourite new-to-you authors that you discovered in 2016? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!


  1. Great list! How did you make it so long without reading Gone Girl? The hype was huge!

    1. I know, and my brother kept threatening to ruin it for me because he watched the movie and couldn't believe that I wanted to read the book before watching the movie! I just had to avoid reading anyone's reviews so that I didn't see anyone's spoilers.

  2. Ooh Gillian Flynn is one I was going to try in 2016 and never did. I'll have to carry that over into 2017. :) And Riggs- I keep going back and forth on if I want to read Peregrine's or not.

  3. I just read a fantastic adult mystery by Linda Castillo. I already reserved the next 2 books in the series. Loved seeing who you read who are new to you too.
