I read quite a few new-to-me authors this year, which is really great. Some of these authors I read multiple works from this year, and some of them I have only read one work this year but I am very eager to read more, well I'm eager to read more from all of these authors, but you know what I mean. I've got quite a long list today so let's get started.
Hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish
1. Marcus Sedgwick
I really love the themes that Sedgwick works with and the way he plays with and bends time in his novels! I'm really looking forward to reading more of his novels next year.
2. Gris Grimley
I'm so eager to get my hands of Grimley's other works. Particularly his illustrated Poe stories. I love his style and how he brings classic stories to life.
3. Andrew Smith
I read two novels by Andrew Smith this year, and really loved both. I love his writing style and the strength of his narrator's voices. His book are perfect for male readers but can also be enjoyed be girls. I'm really eager to read his older books, and his newest book.
4. Jenny Han
I read four of Jenny Han's books this year, and I really enjoyed them all. They have such great heart and humor, and are really entertaining and impossible to put down contemporaries.
5. Sarah J. Maas
I'm so glad I discovered Sarah J. Maas this year! I love the Throne of Glass Trilogy and I'm very excited for her new adult fantasy series in 2015. I highly recommend her books, if you haven't picked them up yet.
6. David Levithan
I can't believe it took my this long to read David Levithan! I really enjoy his humor and how endearing and powerfully positive his books are.
7. Margaret Atwood
I need to read more Atwood now! I loved The Handmaid's Tale and I have heard so many great things about her other works. For some reason I was a little intimidated by her and her reputation, but I'm really eager to read more from her next year.
I've Read: The Handmaid's Tale
8. Neil Gaiman
Gaiman is such a hyped up author. I only hear great things about his work, and I got introduced to him this year through The Graveyard Book. I've also read a few of his short stories, and they particularly interest me. I will be reading more Gaiman for sure.
I've Read: The Graveyard Book
9. A.S. King
A.S. King is the Queen of magical realism, which is an element I'm really starting to love. I really loved the novel of hers I read this year, and I need to read more. Plus, her novels are all standalones!
I've Read: Everybody Sees the Ants
10. Virginia Woolf
I've owned works by Woolf for a while but hadn't read any until this year. I loved A Room of One's Own and the sassy wit that came along with it. I have a lot of works from Woolf on my TBR list, and I'm excited to dive into her fiction.
11. Jack Kerouac
Kerouac's writing is beautiful and the people he writes about eccentric. I'm definitely going to make my way through his other novels in the very near future.
I've Read: On The Road
