Top Ten Tuesday

Posted December 9, 2014 by in General / 26 Comments

This week’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is top ten new-to-me authors I read in 2014. Hmmm…

  1. Katherine Addison (Sarah Monette). If you haven’t noticed how I loved The Goblin Emperorwell, wow.
  2. Brandon Sanderson. Yep, I know, I’m way behind. But I think The Rithmatist was the first thing I’ve read by him.
  3. Rainbow Rowell. She can certainly write an absorbing story!
  4. Francis Pryor. Yes, an odd one out so far, but man, absorbing books about archaeology, how could I not love?
  5. Richard Fortey. Too bad I managed to read most of his books just in this one year.
  6. David Quammen. Purely on the basis of Spillover, without even having to think! I’m not sure about getting his book on ebola; I don’t know how much it overlaps.
  7. Steven Brust. Okay, technically I read a collab of his with Robin Hobb long, long ago, but this year saw my introduction to his solo work.
  8. Ilona Andrews. Really didn’t expect to like the Kate Daniels books so much, but I do.
  9. Ngaio Marsh. I need to get back to gorging on these, I think. At least there’s a lot!
  10. Kameron Hurley. I still haven’t read her non-fiction, but I loved her non-fiction collection.

What about you? Anything you think I’m missing from my life?

  1. I think Rainbow Rowell was a new-to-me author as well! I read Fangirl by her and enjoyed it. Same for Brandon Sanderson. I’m behind too! I read The Final Empire -the first book in the Mistborn series- and it was absolutely incredible. I need to read all of his books now.

    Great list!

    • I think I heard of Rowell at the end of last year, but Attachments was the firts book I read, and that was maybe February-time? Hmmm. I need to read more of Sanderson’s work.

  2. Rainbow Rowell is amazing, she was almost at the top off my list last year. I’ve also just recently read The Rithmatist, and loved it, so I can’t wait to read more from Sanderson as well. The rest of these authors are new to me, so I’m going to check some of them out. Great list, and thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier. 🙂

  3. Great list! I’ve never read any works from those authors besides Rainbow Rowell (I read Fangirl and didn’t like it. I have yet to read Eleanor and Park though..) I guess I will have to be doing some research on some authors here! Wooh!
