Top Ten Tuesday | The New Authors I Read in 2017!

Hello readers and fellow bookworms. Welcome to 2018 – and the very first Top Ten Tuesday of 2018. Let’s hope 2018 doesn’t travel past us with quite as much speed as 2017 did.

Broke and Bookish January 2: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2017– Broke and Bookish

(This post does contain affiliate links. Read the disclosure page for details.)

So, the new authors of 2017! Goodness. I feel like there should be more than those I’ve collected down below (and I know there is), but I also feel like most of these books have been populating Finding Wonderland’s lists the past couple of weeks. Not that I mind because when a bookworm discovers a great book, they want to share all the shares about it. Fortunately for me, I think most of us feel the same way.

(Yes, kind of recycling last weeks photos... because life.)

1. What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum | Though this is the first book I’ve read by Julie, it won’t be the last. I think this one was adorable, and too cute! Amazon | Goodreads

2. The Captive Heart by Michelle Griep |Historical novels aren’t always my jam. Why I cannot say since I’m a die-hard BBC period drama aficionado. That said, I remembering thinking Michelle’s novel quite stunning with a genuine and heartfelt romance. Amazon | Goodreads
3. Close to You by Kara Isaac | OK, so technically I read this one in 2016 (which I discovered upon editing), but it deserves ALL THE MENTIONS. Though it took me a great deal long than it should have, I finally read and thoroughly enjoyed Kara’s beautiful debut. It’s an adult romance with intelligence. Amazon | Goodreads

4. A Lesson in Love and Murder by Rachel McMillan | Rachel’s novels are always pure delight from first page to last. They make me smile and laugh which makes them (in my book) the best kind of stories. Also, I realize I did not discover Rachel as an author in 2017... but what can I say? Reading this book was long overdue... and I'm all for oversharing about amazing fiction. Amazon | Goodreads

5. Lola & the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins | After reading Anna and the French kiss reading this companion/follow up novel was high on my list. Fortunately 2017 was THE year I finally read it.  Amazon | Goodreads

6. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West | I discovered lots of Kasie West books in 2017. From ‘Distance’ to On the Fence and her next-to-latest release, Lucky in Love, they were all magical in their varying degrees of adorable. Amazon | Goodreads

7. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon | Read my first Nicola Yoon novel, and like so many that I delayed reading, tit too is a lovely story of hope and overcoming emotional scars. Amazon | Goodreads | Find the film adaptation on BluRay via Amazon
