Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each Tuesday features a different topic and you post your top ten list related to the topic.

This weeks topic is:  Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR.

1. John Green
  •  I was first introduced to John Green through Vlogbrothers. For those of you who don't know, it is a YouTube channel that John and his brother Hank run.  It wasn't until after watching many, many videos that I decided to read one of John's books. The first was Looking for Alaska, then The Fault In Our Stars and Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I loved all three.
2. Samantha Young
  • After I finished reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy I was hearing a lot about Samantha Young's  On Dublin Street. I had been told if you like Fifty Shades you'll love this new book. I instantly feel in love with Joss and Braden and ending up liking it much more than Fifty Shades. I went on to read the short story as well as book two Down London Road.
3. Gillian Philip
  • I was introduced to Gillian Philips when I got a review request to read her book Firebrand. I love her Scottish brothers Conal & Seth.
4. Brooklyn Ann
  • I came across Brooklyn Ann's book on Amazon, I'll admit the title attracted me - Bite Me, Your Grace
5. Veronica Roth
  • I listened to the audiobooks of Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant this past year. I love the series, but book 3 was a bit disappointing. Looking forward to seeing the upcoming movie.
6. Shaunta Grimes
  • I got a review request to read Viral Nation. The dystopian genre is not my go to genre, but I really loved this one and the characters.
7. Philippa Gregory
  •  I had heard of Philippa Gregory, and finally got around to reading her.  I reviewed the audiobook of Stormbringers. Enjoyable read, but I was a bit lost, it being the second book in the series.
8. Joe Hill
  • I have yet to read any of Joe Hill's books but I did read his graphic novels Locke & Key that he co-writes with Gabriel Rodriguez. Such an addicting series, can't wait for volume 6 to come out.
9. Christopher Rice
  • Mr. Rice has several books out, but Heaven's Rise was the first one I read. It was unique and creepy. I'm hoping he'll write more in this genre.
10. Diana Gabaldon
  • Outlander was recommended to me years ago and I finally got around to to reading it and loved it. 


  1. I read Will Grayson, Will Grayson last year and liked it, though I haven't read anything else by John Green.
    And I love Divergent, though I agree with you: the last books was disappointing.

  2. John Green and Veronica Roth are among my faves. I don't know many others but I plan on starting Gabaldon soon.
    Happy reading!

  3. I really like Veronica Roth. I'm glad you found Philippa Gregory. She's a fabulous author.

  4. I've only read one John Green book and that was The Fault in Our Stars. I'm really look forward to that movie and Divergent on the big screen!

  5. Glad to see you enjoyed Veronica Roth, John Green, Diana Gabaldon, and Philippa Gregory. I still need to read On Dublin Street though I love Samantha Young's YA novels.
