Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

TJ Klune: Most everyone has heard about Klune’s The House in the Cerulean Sea. I didn’t realize until after I finished that a lot of his books are on my TBR pile. Hopefully, I get to read his other books soon.

Daisy Johnson: Read Johnson’s Everything Under for a class I audited last fall. I was entranced with the language and world she created, while not perfect by any means, it was still a wonderful read and I’m excited to see what else she writes in the future.

Pamela N. Harris: Her debut novel, When You Look Like Us, was beautiful and poignant and everyone needs to read it!!

Taylor Jenkins Reid: I’ve probably said this before, but I don’t care. I’m not a fan of TJR. There I said it, come at me! I did finally read 3 of her books last year and had such high expectations that I think that’s why the books themselves fell flat for me.

Lee Mandelo: Another debut author I read last year. Mandelo’s Summer Sons was a gritty, American Gothic novel, and their another author that I’m excited to see what they come up with next.

Lisa Jenn Bigelow: Hazel’s Theory of Evolution was such a fun middle-school read that approached difficult topics in a great way for kids, so this author is definitely on my radar now.

Heather Walter: I think we all fell in love with Malice and Heather Walter in 2021….no, just me, well okay than.

Becky Chambers: I absolutely fell in love with the world and characters Becky Chambers created in The Wayfarer Series and she’s become one of those automatic buy authors.

Kekla Magoon: I had never heard of Kekla Magoon until reading How It Went Down, a tragic story told with beautiful prose. I definitely want to pick up her other books.

Happy Reading Darlings!

  1. TJ Klune made my list this week too and I think he’s my favorite new author from last year. The House in the Cerulean Sea and Under the Whispering Door are just such special reads.
