Top Ten Tuesday ~ New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Don’t forget to head over to That Artsy Reader Girl and join the linkup!

(Random note: I’m starting to add in author names as tags when I mention them or their books. I’ll add these in to older posts as I have time and the desire to do it, but I make no promises on how much I will decide to do.)


New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018

I do try to read work by new authors, but it can be hard when I also love reading everything by the authors I like. And when some of those authors (*cough*SeananMcGuire*cough*) are super prolific, it can be hard to stay on top of the “new author” checklist. Still, here are some authors that I read for the first time in 2018. (This is not in any kind of order.)

1. Hiromu Arakawa
Fullmetal Alchemist

2. Trevor Noah
Born a Crime

3. L.M. Montgomery
Anne of Green Gables

4. Ken Liu
“The Paper Menagerie”

5. Marie Lu

6. Ernest Cline
Ready Player One

7. Frederik Pohl
“The Tunnel Under the World”

8. Rupi Kaur
milk and honey

9. Anne Frank
The Diary of a Young Girl

10. Charlotte Brontë
Jane Eyre

Okay… so there were more new authors than I realized, because I could keep going for at least another ten. Still, I have a LOT of Connie Willis and Shakespeare and Seanan McGuire on my list of books read. And also, once I read the first Fullmetal Alchemist graphic novel, there are lots of volumes by Hiromu Arakawa on there too.

    1. I really enjoyed it! I listened to the audio book version of it — I’m not sure if I would have liked the paper book as much, but it was great to listen to Trevor tell his own story.

    1. Thanks! I’ve decided that authors are what I’d prefer to track in this instance… for a while I thought about book titles, but that would be way too crazy.

      1. Authors is definitely a great way to tie all the books by one author together. That’s why I keep thinking of it. But eh, I’ll survive without it.
        best of luck on your blog project with that. Sometimes going backwards and editing posts can be a real hassle.
