Top Ten Tuesday: New to Me Authors I Discovered in 2023

 




I read 38 new to me authors last year. Now, I could do a Top Ten Tuesday post with 38 different books, but I decided to narrow it down a bit by only including the new to me authors who I graded as either 4.5 or 5 out of 5 reads.


Here we go:






Erin Littekin - The Lost Daughters of Ukraine was so good. I am definitely intending to go back and read her debut novel! (my review)



Pip Williams - The Book Binder of Jericho - I haven't read Dictionary of Lost Words yet but I need to get onto it as we are going to go and see the play at the end of February.






Anthea Hodgson
- My first book by this author was The War Nurses. I also listened to The Drifter which was great too. 



Jane Lovering - I read The Recipe for Happiness. Lucky for me there is quite a backlist available from this author (my review)




Durian Sukegawa
- Sweet Bean Paste was so good! (my review)


Lauren Westwood - I loved The Little Paris Toyshop so much. (my review)






Bonnie Garmus - I was a bit late to the party when it comes to reading Lessons in Chemistry. I am supposed to be going to hear her talk soon too. Must check when that is. (review)



Rebecca Yarros - I really enjoyed Fourth Wing, and have since read Iron Flame. I am curious to read more but all of the other books she has written look completely different from these two books.






Kim Fay
- Really enjoyed Love and Saffron by this author (my review)



Juliet Greenwood - The Last Train from Paris was really good and I will be trying to read more from this author's backlist as well. (my review)



Have you read any of these authors?

  10. I haven't read any of these authors/books, but almost all of them are on my TBR list. *Sigh* So many books, so little time...

    Happy TTT!
