Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite New-To-Me Authors of 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  I'm excited to participate; after all, I am pretty much obsessed with making lists.  This week's topic focuses on my favorite new-to-me authors of 2012.  Here are some that come to mind so far:

Jessica Shirvington Via Goodreads
1.  Jessica Shirvington- She is a new-to-me author of the Embrace series and it easily became one of my favorites. 

2.  Erika Robuck- I loved Hemingway's Girl and can't wait to check out her other historical reads. Her next book, Call Me Zelda, focuses on Zelda Fitzgerald...how cool is that?

3.  Katie McGarry- I was totally consumed by Pushing the Limits (despite some cheesy dialogue) and I have got this new author on my radar.

4.  Huntley Fitzpatrick- I adored My Life Next Door- it was one of my favorite summertime reads.  Her next book, What I Thought Was True , sounds just as good!

Michelle Hodkin via Goodreads
5.  Michelle Hodkin- I love the Mara Dyer series even though it scares the crap out of me. She is definitely a brilliant writer and I can't wait for book three!

6.  Tammara Webber- I really enjoyed Easy and am all about the "new adult" genre, which is new to me as well.

7.  Wendy Higgins- Sweet Evil was such awesome mind-candy and a great start to a promising new paranormal series.

8.  Molly McAdams- Taking Chances was one of my favorite "new adult" reads and am looking forward to her other books.

9.  Sophie Jordan- She got me to read a series about Dragons, (Firelight), so she must be a good author!

10.  Kirsten Hubbard- Wanderlove made me want to pack my bags and leave it all behind. I had a serious travel bug after reading this book.

So what do you guys think? Which authors that are new-to-you this year are your favorite? Let me know!


  1. Michelle Hodkin would be on my list as well, I *love* her writing. I need book three in my life NOW! :D

  2. Great list! I'm a fan of so many of these authors too and I really need to check out Jessica Shirvington's series!

  3. Great list. I can't believe I haven't tried any of these. Bad Juju!

  4. Oh yes, Wendy Higgins, Katie McGarry, Jessica Shirvington, and Tammara Webber would top my list of new to me authors this year too! Oh, and Huntley Fitzpatrick too:) I adore Michelle Hodkin, she's absolutely amazing and I fell madly in love with her when I devoured Unbecoming last year! I just got both Taking Chances and From Ashes for review, SO EXCITED for those. I have a feeling Molly will quickly be added to my list of favorite authors:)

  5. There's an author who's writing about Zelda Fitzgerald? I'm going to have to look her up!

  6. I LOVED Pushing the Limits. I can't wait to read Dare You To by McGarry. Glad to see you loved PtL too!

  7. Katie McGarry made my list too. She's actually the only one I've read off your list, the rest are either ones on my tbr or ones I'm planning on checking out soon!

    My TTT

  8. LOVE Katie McGarry and Wendy Higgins, both of them wrote amazing books that I just couldn't put down...and I'm eagerly awaiting the next release from both. :]
