Top ten new-to-me favorite authors I read for the first time in 2015!

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

This meme is hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish :)

1. Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles has become one of my ALL TIME favorite series, I cannot wait to read more of her work! 

2. Colleen Hoover
My goal next year is to finish the rest of her books because she is a PHENOMENAL writer. I don't understand how she's able to capture emotions so perfectly. She's amazing.

3. Tahereh Mafi
Warnette. WarNETTE. WARNETTE! *banshee screams*

4. Erika Johansen
Another all time favorite trilogy, I can't get enough of this woman's work *bows down to her picture*

5. Morgan Matson
The queen of YA contemporary! *heart eyes* 

6. Amie Kaufman, Megan Spooner, and Jay Kristoff
These Broken Stars and Illuminae are some of my faves of 2015, these guys are crazy amazing.

7. Sara Raasch
Snow Like Ashes is based in one of my favorite worlds, can you imagine how cool it would be to be to live in a kingdom with only one season? And to look like it? Agh, my little winterians are so cute.

8. Jenn Marie Thorne
The Wrong Side of Right is one of my favorite contemporaries that deal with being involved in the political life (her father is running for president) and it was so intriguing and refreshing. 

9. Dan Brown
The Da Vinci Code blew my mind. Simple as that. 

10. Maria Dahvana Headley
Talk about a book that is unlike anything I've ever read before. If you haven't read Magonia and are looking for something new, I highly recommend this!

  5. Yay for Tahereh Mafi. I loooved her Shatter Me series, and I cannot wait until she releases something new! Also, I have seen Morgan Matson on a lot of lists today. I've really been digging YA contemporary lately, so I'll definitely have to check out some of her books. Fantastic list!
