Top Ten Tuesday - New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020


The top 10 weekly meme used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish they  handed over the reins to That Artsy Reader Girl who can be found HERE.  Each week she will focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading.

This week I am sharing with you authors I read for the first time last year.  I'm not really sure how this one will work out so let's hop over to Goodreads and see!

Thanks to my buddy reads with Stormi, I read 5 books by Gail Carriger last year when I had previously read none.

I was excited to read my first Alyssa Cole last year.  Too bad the excitement didn't last.

I feel in love with Steve N. Lee's dog book last year.

This is the first book I read by Jason Parent but it won't be the last!

I enjoyed this book so much more than I anticipated and can't wait to read Henry's next book.

I loved The Bone Jar and need the sequel NOW!

I LOVED this book and will definitely be picking up more from Holly Jackson.

Really glad I decided to give Kimberly Belle a try.  I highly recommend this book.

It took a buddy read with Anne from Books of My Heart for me to finally read a Harlan Coben book.

I can't believe I waited so long to try Samantha Downing.  That reminds me, I still need to grab her first one.

So there you have it.  And actually, I could have kept going.  I'm actually quite surprised at how many authors I read last year were new to me.  

Did any of these make your list??


  1. Beach Read was so good! I'm excited for her next one! Great list.

    My Top Ten

  2. I read exactly 10 new authors in 2020! I hope you can stop by:



  3. Love Carriger and Emily Henry! The rest of these books are going on my TBR list. :D

  4. I loved THE GOOD GIRL'S GUIDE TO MURDER and can't wait to read the sequel. Such a fun murder mystery!

    Happy TTT!

  5. I also read the Alyssa Cole, Samantha Downing and Kimberly Belle books, actually all as audiobooks. And I want to read The Good Girl's Guide to Murder yet also.

    Anne - Books of My Heart

  6. Both of Samantha Downing's book have been fantastic!

  7. That's a bummer about the Cole one? And I definitely want to read Good Girl's Guide!!!!

  8. I still need to read Harlan Coben - one day! Maybe this year!

  9. Ahhh, Samantha Downing! she was on my list last year!

  10. I read Jason Parent for the first time too, and Samantha Downing is on my list to read soon. Maybe this year😁

  11. I read Emily Henry for the first time in 2020 as well! And I hope to try some Gail Carriger and Alyssa Cole in 2021 :)

  12. I can always trust you when you endorse a dog book. I've not heard of As The Stars Fall or its author, but it sounds really good; I appreciate the rec.

  13. I was interested in The Bone Jar, but I can't remember if I added it to Goodreads, or not. I'll have to check. 📚

  14. I really do need to get to a LOT of new authors that are lurking on ereaders and bookshelves! I am struggling with any reads that aren't non fiction at the moment!
