Top Ten New To Me Authors That I Read in 2016


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s list we’re listing our favourite new to us authors that we’ve read this year. I’ve discovered some gems this year but I have to admit, I have returned to old faithfuls more. I must get better!

Courtney Summers-

I started with All The Rage and have since caught up on all things Courtney Summers. I think she’s such a powerful, edgy author.

Keith Stuart-

I really enjoyed Keith’s debut novel Boy Made of Blocks which was about an autistic boy and his family. Heartwarming.

Carrie Hope Fletcher-

I’ve known about Carrie for years, so was happy to read her debut novel On The Other Side.

Highly Illogical Behaviour blew my mind.

I really enjoyed Furiously Happy. It was different to read about anxiety and depression in this way.

C.J. Flood-

Infinite Sky was a stunning read!

  1. I haven’t read any of these yet, but I’m definitely hoping to get to Highly Illogical Behaviour soon! I’ve heard so many good things already. Furiously Happy is on my TBR as well 🙂

  2. Great list! I’ve been meaning to read The Next Together for ages, but still haven’t got around to it. I’m pretty sure I even got the book for my birthday back in 2015! I’ve also heard so many great things about Furiously Happy, so I’m definitely contemplating giving it a read.

  3. Hangs head! I haven’t read any of these authors but Furiously Happy has been receiving such a lot of favourable attention that I definitely want to pick that up – although I’ve not picked up a copy yet as I’m trying to behave and catch up with some of the books on my tbr
    Lynn 😀

  4. I haven’t read any of these yet but Highly Illogical Behaviour is on my to be read list so hopefully I’ll have read it in the next year or so. 😀

  5. Woah I must admit I’ve never read any of these authors before! It’s encouraging to hear that you seemed to enjoy them all though. I know I’ve been meaning to read Courteney Sommers books for a LONG time now so I better get on that!

  6. Sad to say I haven’t read any of these yet, although I’m really interested in Highly Illogical Behavior and have it on my library hold list. Looks like you had some great finds in 2016!
