TTT: New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl come January 2018. It was made through the love of lists, books and to bring readers together.

At first I thought I hadn’t read that many books from new authors in 2018, but a look on my Goodreads says otherwise!

The authors I have included in this list are authors that I will be reading more from in the coming years, I might have mixed feelings about the first books I read from them or I might love them, but either way these are authors I’ll be looking out for in the future and have further plans to read from. This year has so far proven very slow in reading progress even though I seem to have gotten over my time change adjustment now…. Either way I will include the covers of the books I read and my list is as follows 🙂
