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.
Here’s an interview the Paris Review did with her.
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).
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.
I’m very keen to read I’ll be Gone in the Dark.
I’ve never read any manga before! I’ll see if I can find a copy of Orange.
This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.
Severance was fantastic, and the longer it’s been since I finished reading it, the more thoughts I have about it!
I love slice of life manga, so I’m putting Orange on my list.
I saw Ling Ma at a book festival. The way she described the book made me decide to read it. 🙂 My TTT
I really want to read I’ll be Gone in the Dark. Great list!

Thank you! It’s such a great read but really creepy.
Death by Dumpling is an awesome title!
