Top Ten Tuesday

Posted December 8, 2015 by Nicky in General / 18 Comments

This week’s theme is the top ten new to me authors I’ve read this year. So, with the help of Goodreads, here goes!

  1. Kerry Greenwood. Actually technically not new to me, because I’d read Cocaine Blues before. But I hated it, for some reason, and didn’t read the whole thing the first time. This time, I devoured it and went on to eat up the rest of the series too (something I’m still in progress with). So I’m going to pretend the first time didn’t happen. I was clearly cranky at the time.
  2. Leigh Bardugo. I know I’m late to the party, but I finally read Shadow and Bone, and found myself unexpectedly riveted.
  3. Ann Leckie. Again, rather late to the party, but at least it meant that I got to read the whole trilogy more or less at once, with just a couple of months waiting for the last one!
  4. K.J. Parker. I’m not just late to the party, I crashed in after several hours. But I read the novella and now I know I need to get round to more of Parker’s work.
  5. Freda Warrington. Her vampire novels are just ridiculously addictive. Hurrah for Titan rereleasing them so they came to my attention.
  6. Patricia Briggs. I have some problems with her books, but they’re also dead fun.
  7. Elizabeth Bear. Rather late to the party again, but Karen Memory made me want to read more of her work.
  8. Seth Dickinson. The Traitor Baru Cormorant was awesome.
  9. Zen Cho. I enjoyed Sorcerer to the Crown.
  10. Greg van Eekhout. I really need to get round to the third book in his trilogy, Dragon Coast.

I’ll be interested to see what other people have discovered this year! A couple of mine were actually debut authors, but as you can see from where I’ve been late to the party, a lot of them were discoveries of authors who’ve been going a while.

  1. I love Patricia Briggs… Haven’t read any of the others, but for a couple, that’s a timing thing: I decided to hold off on Ann Leckie until the whole trilogy was available. Now I have all three books and just need to get started! Same w/Elizabeth Bear — I want to read Karen Memory and preordered the paperback, coming in January. 🙂

  2. Great list! I really wanted to read a Patricia Briggs book this year as well as the Grisha trilogy. I’m still hopeful that I will have the time to read the Grisha trilogy this year, or at least start it!
