Top Ten New-To-Me Authors Allison Read In 2012
1. J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter. Harry Potter. Harry Potter. Need I say more? I’m so glad I finally gave in and decided to read the Harry Potter series before BEA. I can honestly say my life is ten times better because of it. J.K. Rowling is AMAZING!
2. John Green
The Fault in our Stars was the first John Green book I read but it definitely won’t be the last.
3. Juliet Marillier
Sevenwaters is a world that I just want to visit time and time again. It is so epic, and Juliet Marillier really is a queen of fantasy writing.
4. Susan Vaught
I’m really interested in reading more from Susan Vaught especially with how much I loved Freaks Like Us this year.
5. Kristin Cashore
Kristin Cashore is a master storyteller. She’s also extremely fascinating in person, and I can’t wait to read more from her.
6. Elizabeth Wein
Elizabeth Wein is another master storyteller. Code Name Verity left me breathless!
7. Markus Zusak
I read The Book Thief for the first time this year and was absolutely blown away. The power of that book is almost indescribable. It made me an emotional basketcase, and I loved every second of it.
8. Laini Taylor
Lush writing. Fierce characters. Magical things of beauty. I adored Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and I can’t wait to get my hands on Days of Blood and Starlight.
9. Ruta Sepetrys
If you have not read Between Shades of Grey you need to get your hands on a copy right now. It is truly captivating, and definitely one of my favorite books I read this year.
10. Tammara Webber
Her Between The Lines series has captured my heart with its web of entangled characters, and drama, and refused to let it go. I can’t complain though. I’m really glad I found it … and her!
