Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018

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

Ling Ma

Her debut Severance was SO GOOD (my thoughts) and it won the Kirkus Prize for fiction last year.

Here’s an interview the Paris Review did with her.

Michelle McNamara

Sadly, her book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark was only published after her death (my thoughts)

Kwame Alexander

Loved his book Swing, a YA story with a lovelorn young man as its main character.

Vivian Chien

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.

Ichigo Tanako


What a story! Orange is a manga series I’d recommend, especially if you’re new to manga (my thoughts).

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
