Top Nine New-To-Me Authors of 2017 | A Very Late TTT

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, we’re talking new-to-you authors. To be clear, these are not debut authors! I just happened to pick up their works for the first time this year.


Cinda Williams Chima //  Seven Realms series // I finally read this series last year! I’d been hearing people rave about it for years… I actually managed to read the entire series last year. I know what you’re thinking. Jolien, a entire year for books is not really much of an accomplishment! But it is for me. I’m really terrible at following up on my series.

Alice Oseman // Radio Silence // This was one of my favorite reads last year, so obviously I had to include her on this list. I’m hoping to read Solitaire this year, as well as her 3rd book which will be released soon. 

Charlotte Brontë // Jane Eyre // Another one that ended up on my favorites list! I’m definitely going to check out more works by the Brontë sisters soon.

Holly Bourne // Am I Normal Yet? // LOVE this book, and love Holly Bourne. Not only is she an incredible writer but she’s incredibly nice as well.

Pierce Brown // Red Rising // Another author I’m definitely keeping an eye on. I’m going to continue this series this year!


Courtney Summers // All the Rage // I haven’t read her other backlist works, but this one really blew me away.

Mackenzi Lee // The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue // Mackenzi Lee shot her way into my favorites of the year list with this book. It was so adorable, interesting and funny! In fact, I loved pretty much every single thing about it -and I’ll definitely be picking up her other works.

Sandhya Menon // When Dimple Met Rishi // Another author I’m going to read more of this year! I can’t wait for From Twinkle, With Love. 

Ayisha Malik // Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged // I hadn’t heard much about this book before picking it up, but Ayisha Malik’s work was a pleasant surprise. 

Obviously, I need to expand my author-horizons in 2018 because I could only come up with 9 new authors whose works I truly liked/loved.
Have you read any of these books?
Which authors’ works should I pick up this year?
