Top Ten New-To-Me Favorite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015.
These are in no particular order. I just posted as I came across them on my Goodreads list. Here we go!
1.) Sarah Dessen. I’ve known about her for YEARS! My sister read her books all the time, but stupidly, I barely picked up one of her books this year…AND I LOVED IT!! The First book by Sarah that I read was Saint Anything. It is AMAZING! Now I’m on a Sarah Dessen kick, and I’ve loved all that I have read so far!
2.) Sarah Ockler. It seemed that Twenty Boy Summer was sitting on a shelf, everywhere I went, and when I picked it up and read the synopsis, I put it back down. It didn’t seem like it was for me, but in all honesty, I didn’t read the whole synopsis because when It got to the whole meeting twenty boys in twenty days part, I was turned off. I should have kept reading because this actually turned out to be a great book. I wasn’t just about the boys. I’m glad I got this book from one of my swap partners, because I would have missed out BIG time!
3.) Morgan Matson. I know I’ve only read one of her books so far, but if any of her other books are as good as Second Chance Summer, then I am on the right track. I do own her other two books, hopefully I will read them by the end of December. We’ll see how that goes. I’m excited for her 2016 release! 😀
4.) Mindy Kaling. I know I am cheating with this one. I have known about Mindy for a few years now, but this year is the first time I have read one of her books. Let me just say that I LOVED Why Not Me? I can’t wait to read her first book! Her TV Show is my favorite show at the moment. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
5.) Jenny Han. I love Jenny Han! Her books are so cute! I think my favorite one that I have read so far is P.S. I Still Love You. Even though I didn’t end how I wanted it to, but I still loved it! I can’t wait to read her Summer Trilogy.
6.) Sara Zarr. I really enjoyed Sweethearts. Even though I feel like it was missing something, I still think it was a top read of this year!
7.) Deirdre Riordan Hall. Sugar was an amazing book! I know at first I was having a hard time with Sugar’s attitude towards herself, but soon I got over that hump, and was able to really enjoy the story. I’m still sad over what happens in the end, but like I said, I’ll get over it. 😦
8.) Kody Keplinger. I know I’ve said this about A MILLION TIMES!!! but I really really REALLY LOVED THE DUFF!!! I think it’s the funniest YA book I have read all year! Can’t wait to get my hands on her other books!
9.) Jandy Nelson. Can we just have a moment of silence for Jandy Nelson and her AMAZING books…Thank you. I don’t know what to say. I think I’m in love…I know I know I said that about 10 other times in this post, but Jandy Nelson is now one of my top faves! I just LOVE her and her books! Just Amazing…I don’t even know what book to post, because I love them both SO MUCH!…I’ll just post both covers then!
10.) Jenny Downham. I actually watched a movie based on Before I Die, before I even knew it was a book. I loved the movie, so of course I HAD to pick up the book. I’m so glad I did. The book is even better than the movie. It was SO touching. I know I cried at least four times…Too much 😥
I must say, this has been one of my favorite Top Ten Tuesdays! 😀
