Any other year I wouldn’t be able to write this post. This is the most I’ve ever read in my life, and because of that I’ve been more venturous in my reading.
When you are only reading twenty plus books a year, usually you stick with what you know.
And while some of the new authors I read ended up being really disappointing (especially in YA world), I’ve gained some new favorites.
The following is a list of the ‘new-to-me’ authors I read this year and loved. Crossing my fingers that future reads from these authors will also be amazing.
1 Andy Weir
2 Anthony Doerr
3 Blake Crouch
4 Chinua Achebe
5 Colson Whitehead
6 Ernest Cline
7 Jennifer Niven
8 Lev Grossman
9 Patrick Ness
10 Sabaa Tahir
*Hint Hint*: You’ll probably see some of these books on my Top Ten books of 2016. Because of that I’ll go more in depth about my love for these books in my ‘end of the year’ post.
