This week’s Top Ten Tuesday focusses on authors we read for the first time in 2016; to be quite honest, there are not that many, but we should come up with 10 nonetheless. Let’s see, shall we?
1. Jeff Lindsay
I really enjoyed the first two Dexter novels, but number 3 and 4 were not nearly as good, and I’m not sure I’ll read the other ones.
2. Robin Hobb
I enjoyed his books, although I had a little difficulty with his super positive writing style, because it made the more dramatic scenes feel a lot less dramatic than I would have liked. But that’s just my weird opinion.
3. Jana Oliver
Her Demon Trapper’s series is definitely worth a read! At least the first two books are. I don’t know about the rest, cause I haven’t gotten around to reading those.
4. Anthony Ryan
He knows how to write fantasy. I still haven’t had the time to read Queen of Fire, but I most definitely will, because I liked the first two books a lot.
5. Rainbow Rowell
I was late to read Fangirl, but I read it eventually, and I loved it, so yay! I finally understand the hype.
6. Derek Landy
I know I’m a little late to jump on that wagon, but better late than never, right? I enjoyed reading Skulduggery Pleasant, it’s a fun and easy read for all ages, even though the protagonist is very young.
7. Brent Weeks
I didn’t enjoy his books as much as I would have liked to…
8. Marissa Meyer
I started reading The Lunar Chronicles when all the books were published, so there was no waiting for the sequel for me, and I read them all in, like, a week, and still somehow managed to get my work done.
9. Leigh Bardugo
Frodo read the “Grisha” Trilogy in a very short amount of time. Especially the first book (just in two days, while being on vacation with a lot of sightseeing). So I guess it is a clear sign that her books are worth reading.
10. Valentina Fast
Her book series is very similar to “The Selection” Trilogy. Not sure if they are better or worse (depends on the book). I would recommend them to the people who enjoyed “The Selection”, but for the rest… I guess it is too cheesy.
