Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.
This is a pretty exciting topic for this week! I love, love, LOVE discovering new authors! Sadly, I have not read very many new authors this year, but here are the new ones I love! And I am not counting debut authors, because they were new to everyone this year!

I read both of these books this year, and I really like Gayle’s storytelling and her characters. I adored Just One Day, and was majorly hungover after it. Just One Year was quite disappointing, though. I have not read any of her other books because I’m terrified of them. I hate crying!
Starry Nights was one of my favorite books of the year, which puts me in the minority. I think I connected with this book so well because I love art history and art so much. Daisy was able to turn art into magic with this book, and I loved that so much!
J.A.’s writing style is gorgeous, and this new trilogy is SO unique and exciting. I love the world she created, and I love the characters. My favorite thing about these books, though, is the vivid imagery J.A. created for us. SO pretty! The descriptions of the scenery had me swooning.
I know, right?! My first Jessi Kirby book EVER! And I loved it! I love romance novels, and this one had very little romance in it. I still really enjoyed it, though, which means Jessi is awesome. I am so excited to get to more of her books.
I am a big fan of the Heist Society series, even though I’ve only read the first one. Ally’s writing is so perfect that I barely notice it. I know that sounds weird, but it just works for the story. I can’t wait to read more of this series, as well as The Gallagher Girls.
Shadow and Bone & Siege and Storm
Leigh can go from writing deep feelings to crazy battle scenes to detailed descriptions of Grisha powers. If her writing was not so amazing these books would be just another fantasy trilogy.
While I LOVED Unremembered, I also had so much fun getting to know Jessica through the guest post she did for me as part of her blog tour! She is such a nice person.
This book was just so much fun!
I read very little adult romance this year, but I really loved this one!
The Winner’s Curse
This book is amazing! I love Marie’s writing style, and her creative mind.
And there you have it! Which awesome authors did you discover this year?
