Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-me authors I read in 2019

Top Ten Tuesday banner

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, wherein each week bloggers list out their Top Ten.

The topic this week was ‘Bookish Discoveries I Made In 2019’ and which could be anything – book, authors, websites, apps, etc, so I thought to go with authors I read for the first time last year. (I haven’t included debuts because I already did a favorite debuts thing somewhere in my wrap-ups soooo) Some of them have been on my TBR for quite a while, and some I found out about last year. And I usually add another book by an author when I just finish their book, so I thought to add the books by them that I am excited to read next!

  1. I’ve only read Discovery of Witches from your list, but I have quite a few of these books on my TBR for this year (especially). I’m especially keen to finally read Jade City and The Poppy War! Great list 🙂
