Top Ten New to Me Authors I Read in 2013



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.  It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists!  Check out what others have posted by going over there!

1.  Stephen King

The Shining & Doctor Sleep

I finally gave in and read The Shining and I loved it.  Doctor Sleep was just as good.  Now I have to get myself another but this amazing author.

2.  Rita Leganski

The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow

The first book I read for the She Reads book club and it was amazing!

3.  Christina Baker Kline

Orphan Train

Another She Reads selection.

4.  Matthew Quick

Silver Linings Playbook

I want to reread this- the mark of a very good book!

5.  Liane Moriarty

The Husband’s Secret

I can’t wait to read her new one.

6.  Samantha Shannon

The Bone Season

I just finished this a few days ago and I am already itching for the next in the series- hurry it up Ms. Shannon!

7.  Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina

One of the first books I read in 2013- beautiful.

8.  Kathleen Tesaro

 The Perfume Collector

I loved the dual narrative.

9. Charlie Lovette

The Bookman’s Tale

I love books about people who love books.

10.  Alyson Richman

The Lost Wife

I thought the author did a wonderful job with this story.

  1. I also read The Shining and Doctor sleep this year! So glad you discovered great authors this year. The books in your list that are in my TBR list are The Husband’s Secret, The Bookman’s Tale, Orphan Train 🙂

  2. STEPHEN KING!! Awesome. I love a lot of his work, but among my favorites are his more recent books, Under the Dome (don’t be turned off by the poor-to-mediocre TV version) and 11/22/63. I still need to read The Husband’s Secret and The Bone Season — both are sitting my Kindle, just need time to get to them. 🙂 One of my online book groups has The Bookman’s Tale coming up soon. I wasn’t sure if I was going to join in for that one, but seeing it on your list is making me think twice. Great list!!
