Top Ten Tuesday | Authors New to Me in 2018

top ten tuesday (2)

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. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

These are not in any particular order. I just went through my Read list and found the new authors I loved the most.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

I love the others, but Clare’s writing has grown and with it, her characters. I am going to have to do a love hate breakdown on this and I can’t write it without spoilers so if you haven’t read any of The Dark Artifices STOP NOW.
