Eight New to Me Authors in 2017

Posted January 2, 2018 by Mallory in Bookish Things, Top 10 Tuesday / 10 Comments

Love bookish lists?  Check out the Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish!

Moment of truth time:  anyone else out there TERRIFIED to try new authors?  Really, I have my tried and true favorites and it’s PAINFUL for me to deviate.  What if I’ve WASTED MY TIME AND HATE THE BOOK?!?  Really, the whole situation turns me into a stressed-out wreck.

Have no fear though!  Here are eight new authors that I tried in 2017 and absolutely liked, if not downright loved.  Oh, and the real title of this post should be “Mallory Finally Got Out From Under Her Rock and Found the Authors We’ve Been Talking About for Years,” but I thought it might be a tad too wordy.  This is what happens when I finally catch-up on my TBR pile!

Louise Bay – Duke of Manhattan  and The Brittish Knight

Lexi Blake Theives Series


Amanda Bouchet – The Kingmaker Chronicles trilogy

Melanie Harlow – If You Were Mine  and After We Fall

Sylvain Reynard – The Man in the Black Suit

Kylie ScottStage Dive

Sally ThorneThe Hating Game

C.L. Wilson – The Weather Mages of Mystral series

How do you feel about trying new-to-you authors? What were your some of the favorites you found in 2017?

      I do like Amanda Bouchet’s trilogy, but the second book got a little heavy on the Romance Fantasy vibes and I’m honestly a little nervous to try the last book in the series 🙁 Just got the download on my kindle last night and really hope I like it – wish me luck!

  1. I like new to me authors, but I understand wanting to stick with tried and true favorites as well. Great job on reading some from your TBR too. I’m hoping to focus more on those books I already own, or just need to finally read this year.

      I very much need to focus more on author’s whose books I already own in 2018! My kindle pile was embarrassing this year – I only ready 70% of the books I bought. Gotta try to do better in 2018 🙁

      Thanks, Renee! I realized I forgot how much I liked Kylee Scott’s books before I started this post – gotta get more books by the author on my list for 2018!

  2. I must have been hiding under the same rock because I haven’t even heard of any of these authors. And I love trying out new writers! I’m glad you got brave and tried some new authors this year and that you enjoyed their books. That’s always nice 🙂

    Happy TTT!

      I never feel like I notice new authors either, and I never read them when I do! I’m beginning to think I’m an overly picky reader…

      I’m the opposite! I never try new to me authors, but I’m realizing that I now feel like I’m reading the same books over and over again… gotta try more new authors in 2018!
