Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014

Oops! When I drafted this post, for some reason I forget to hit the schedule button and left it in draft… so a Wednesday post it is 🙂

I tried quite a few authors in 2014, both debut and authors that I hadn’t just read any of their books yet! Needless to say, I do have a few new favorites to add to my list…

1. Sarah J. Maas

The Assassin's Blade  Throne of Glass
I devoured the first two books in this series, and am going to pick up Crown of Midnight VERY soon, with Heir of Fire immediately following. I LOVEEEED the first two books, and Sarah J. Maas’s writing so I will definitely be reading everything she comes out with in the future 🙂

2. Leigh Bardugo

The Witch of Duva  Shadow and Bone
I was so scared to start this series, which turned out to be for no good reason! I loved Shadow and Bone and it was one of my favorite books of 2014, so I can’t wait to read all that’s too come from Leigh Bardugo… and finish The Grisha Trilogy!

3. Julie Cross

Whatever Life Throws at You
I fell in love with Julie Cross’s writing style when I read Whatever Life Throws at You AND her amazing characters. This will definitely not be the last book I read by her!

4. Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door
This was, again, another of my favorites of the year. I could barely put into words how much I loved these characteres, their story and the writing. I CANNOT wait to read all that Huntley Fitzpatrick has to offer 🙂

5. Melissa Marr

Made For You
After reading Made For You, I’m super eager to check out Melissa Marr’s other books. Made For You kept me on the very edge of seat and I really, really enjoyed it!

6. Paula Stokes

The Art of Lainey
I’ve raved and raved over The Art of Lainey so much this year, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Paula Stokes is on this list. I will definitely be reading her other books, written as Fiona Paul, and she is hands down an auto buy author for me in the future!

7. Kimberly Derting

The Taking
I really enjoyed The Taking, which shocked me because it’s about aliens! If Kimberly Derting can make me love a book that much, being about something I detest … I need to read her backlist! (And I can’t wait to read the sequel to The Taking!!).

8. J.R. Ward

Dark Lover  Lover Eternal
I LOVEEEE this series, the men are sexy…. the stories are awesome. I cannot wait to continue and read J.R. Ward’s other series 🙂

And there we have it… my favorite new to me authors of the year! I can’t wait to read more from them in 2015! What was on your list?

    So many great books! I love, love, love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I have not read that book by Melissa Marr but I did read her Wicked Lovely series and really liked it.
