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

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

2013 was definitely one my best ever years for reading. I read so many great books and discovered so many fantastic stories. If 2014 is going to be just half as good,  I say roll on the New Year!

1. Katie McGarry

I finally read Pushing the Limits and loved it!

2. Huntley Fitzpatrick

I'd wanted to read My Life Next Door ever since I'd first heard about it, but I didn't get around to it until late this year - and now it's one of my all-time favourites.

3. Marie Lu

I absolutely ADORE the Legend trilogy. I read all three this year - in fact, I finished Champion just this week, and it was amazing!

4. Sarah Dessen

I don't know how I managed not to read Sarah Dessen for so long. She's the queen of contemporary romantic YA!

5. Elizabeth Wein

Elizabeth Wein sets out to rip out her readers' hearts with her fabulous and brutal books, so naturally I read both Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire in the same year!

6. Robyn Schneider

The Beginning of Everything (or Severed Heads, Broken Hearts as it's titled in Europe) is Robyn's debut novel, but she's been a Youtube personality and vlogger for years - I don't know how I missed her!

7. Ruta Sepetys

Another author out to break my heart. Ruta writes incredible moving books, and her second novel, Out of the Easy, became one of my favourite reads of the year.

8. Sarra Manning

Sarra Manning's Adorkable made me laugh out the entire time I was reading it. I had no idea I'd love it so much!

9. Luisa Plaja
Luisa is a fabulous UK author who writes fun, girly books for teens, and after some very insistent recommendations, I finally gave in to reading her in 2013.

10. David Levithan

And representing the male authors I should have read way sooner, it's David Levithan! I can't wait to read his recently announced follow-up, Rhiannon - assuming he's started writing it!

What new authors did you discover this year?


  1. Katie McGarry made my list too. Sarra Manning is great.

  2. Really great list. There are so many of these authors that I need to read :)

    My TTT :)

  3. Great picks! A lot of these are favourite authors of mine. I cannot wait to FINALLY start reading My Life Next Door, I have been desperate to grab a copy of it for ages.

    My Top Ten

  4. Great list! I just started reading My Life Next Door today and I am absolutely head-over-heels in love with it already! I also loved Severed Heads, Broken Hearts; thought that was such a great read. I adore the Legend series too, Champion was a great end to the series :) New Bloglovin follower. My TTT.
