TTT - New to Me Authors in 2014

It's time to link up with the Broke and the Bookish again!

I discovered a TON of authors this year. And I've read multiple books by all of these, except two. One of those I have another book waiting on my Kindle. And I really need to track down more books by the other one, because I adored the one book of his I did read. 

1. Sarah J. Maas
I know, I know. I've taken the Kool-Aid and I'm never ever ever getting over my love for Sarah J. Maas' books. I've read all four of her currently published books this year, and I'm dying to get my hands on more. MORE, GIVE ME MORE. 

2. Katie McGarry
I'm not quite sure how I went so long without knowing about Katie McGarry's books, but I've loved every single one of them that I've read this year. Which is seven. (Although two were novellas)

3. Ellie Marney
There are literally no words for how much I loved Every Breath. And as I said a few weeks ago, I'm physically retraining myself over Every Word because I know I won't survive until the final book in the trilogy is released in March otherwise... 

4. Alex Scarrow
I've merrily ploughed my way through the TimeRiders series this year, and for some reason we don't have the last two books in the series at work. So I need to track them down at my local library so I can finish it off and find out what happens because OMG I NEED TO KNOW. 

5. Morgan Matson
Honestly, I don't know how I went so long without reading a Morgan Matson book because I've LOVED both the ones I read. I really need to find a copy of Second Chance Summer. Like, now. 

6. Alyxandra Harvey
I've absolutely adored both of the Lovegrove Legacy books this year, and I suspect I'll be tracking down The Drake Chronicles pretty damned soon to tide me over until book 3 comes out.

7. Abigail Haas
OH MY GOD, DANGEROUS GIRLS. There are no words for how mindblowing that book was. Dangerous Boys I was less fond of, but I think it was partly because I'd read Dangerous Girls not long before, and so was comparing the two of them throughout. 

8. Laurie Halse Anderson
Excuse me, I'm not sure I requested this dagger to the feels, but I got it anyway. LHA's characters are amazing and dealing with all manner of real world stuff that gave me approximately a million feels. 

9. Huntley Fitzpatrick
Oh, the squees I squeed while reading My Life Next Door. So. Many. Squees. I didn't enjoy What I Thought Was True quiiiiiiiiite as much, because the pacing felt a little off, but it was still pretty adorable. 

10. Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe was basically instant five star territory for me. Seriously. Such an amazingly beautiful book. And I really want to read more of his work, although I'm a little bit afraid that my expectations will be too high now....... 

Which authors are on your list this year?

  1. Out of those, I only discovered the TimeRider series and OMG I need more time to read more of the series because it's pretty great. But I guess the other series that I'm about to embark on LOVING is Wilfair. I'll probbaly have to make my way through those books first.

  2. I also read Dante and Aristotle this year because one of my son's best friends recced it to me. OMG, the feels. The last sentence is utter perfection and it's one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. It's just gorgeous.

    Also started reading Maas, but I'm only on the 2nd book. LHA is amazing. I think I've read Winter Girls about 5 times and ugly cry every time but it's such a great book. I'll have to check some of the others on this list out!

  3. Abigail Haas is A MASTERMIND. I loved her books so much. While Dangerous Boys didn't live up completely to my expectations I still enjoyed it and found it intriguing. I've only read Since You've Been GOne by Morgan Matson and wasn't that crazy about it but I'm really interested in Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. Boht Laurie Halse Anderson and Huntley Fitzpatrick are authors I really want to read books from just haven't been able to.

    Wonderful list!

  6. I LOVED Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. It was so stupidly cute. Plus, roadtrips make everything better.

  7. I loved Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight, but Heir of Fire was in a category unto itself. And YES to Aristotle and Dante. So much yes.

  8. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Seriously, I'm so glad you're loving Wilfair. It's so important to me that EVERYBODY loves that series.

  9. What's not to love? This series is one of the weirdest things I have ever encountered in the book world. I absolutely adore the characters and even though almost nothing has happened with Gomery and Fair yet, I ship them like WHOA!

    I also like how wonderfully Ash, you and me worked out who ends up with which charcater. Perfection!
