I actually read A LOT of new-to-me authors last year – even more than the number of authors whose books I’d already read!
But here are my top 5
Her debut Severance was SO GOOD (my thoughts) and it won the Kirkus Prize for fiction last year.
Sadly, her book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark was only published after her death (my thoughts)
Loved his book Swing, a YA story with a lovelorn young man as its main character.
A cozy mystery series set around a Chinese restaurant? Yes please (my thoughts). There are three books in this series – can’t wait to read the rest.
What a story! Orange is a manga series I’d recommend, especially if you’re new to manga (my thoughts).
