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

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!

Hey, friends! This is officially my first Top Ten Tuesday of 2019! Booktube (and learning how to film and edit) has really taken up a lot of my time! But I missed this weekly post so much that I feel so blessed to be able to start back up! Especially with this fun topic of all the first time authors I read from last year! Also, don’t forget that I did write up a post all about my favorite debuts of 2018, but hopefully I only have a few repeats!

Jessica Townsend

This lovely author made me re-fall in love with all things magical and middle grade in 2018! Nevermoor was honestly everything. Everything.

Claire Legrand

I read two things by Claire for the very first time last year, and I couldn’t believe what I had been missing all my life! I love her and I love her words so much!

Jasmine Guillory

I fell so hard in love with this Romance author last year! Both of her books are ownvoices and set in the same world! And I cannot wait to see what she does next!

Talia Hibbert

I can’t believe I didn’t read anything by this beautiful soul before 2018! But holy moly did she win me over hard last year! So hard, that The Dragons & Tea Book Club picked one of her books for our February 2019 pick! The actual blessings.

Katie O’Neill

I read two of my all time favorite graphic works from Katie in 2018, and I can’t wait to buy and read everything else she has and will create!

Tessa Gratton 

Tessa wrote my second favorite book of 2018, and I continued to read more from her all last year, and I just continue to be more wowed by her craft. She is so talented, and the way she strings words together is truly a gift from above.

Alyssa Cole

Alyssa is another Romance author that I couldn’t get enough from in 2018! A Princess in Theory was everything I’ve been looking for in the genre and she just keeps getting better. I cannot wait for her just released story set in this world, too!

Alice Oseman

Radio Silence was maybe my favorite book of 2018, and I knew I couldn’t compile this list without listing Alice, because I ended up reading all but one of her complete works last year, and I absolutely loved them all so much!

Emily X.R. Pan

I couldn’t not mention Emily, because The Astonishing Color of After was my favorite debut of 2018 and will always be a story I carry in my heart.

Cassandra Clare

You all really thought I wasn’t going to mention my actual 2018 queen in this post? Lord, help me! 2018 was truly the year of me reading 20+ things by this woman, and loving almost all of them! Truly, the greatest blessing of last year!

Okay, friends! That’s it! I hope you enjoyed, and I hope that I was able to surprise you with a few of these! I hope you are having a wonderful month filled with so many five star reads! I love you all!

  1. Nevermoor is the best<3 I also adore Katie O'Neill (but I still have to read The Tea Dragon Society!) And Tessa Gratton / Alice Oseman are two authors I am making a point to start reading this year! I'm also really interested in Emily X.R. Pan's debut- I went to an event she was at and she kept saying her brand is sad and weird and that just really appeals to me LOL. And I'm so so happy you made your way into the Shadowhunter world last year!
