Top Ten Tuesday: Top 13 New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2017

It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by  The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Tuesday at The Green Mockingbird

This week’s official Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2017I’m listing 13 instead, *just* because I can. And, because each of these authors deserve a spot on my list.

Some of these authors have been around a while and I just discovered/read them in 2017. And, some are delightfully new to the world of “official” inspirational fiction. After each author, you can visit my review for their book(s) and see what I have next to read from them on my actual shelves!

  1. SO many amazing new authors on your list. Someday I’ll need to read Mikal’s (loved your fun review for that one) and of course, I’m forever a fan of Becky Wade’s. Bethany too is a fantastic pick – and I cannot wait to read more of Nicole’s books. LOVED her ‘Summer’ novel. 🙂

    Here’s to a great 2018!!

    • Mikal’s is such a fun read!!! It’s on the shorter side, if I remember, so maybe it’s one you can squeeze in some time. I’m glad to know you loved ‘Summer’! The Cliche Christmas one started that series. Happy 2018 to you!

  2. Sara Ella is on my TBR list, but I’m waiting to read her series until the final book is released. I want to read them all at once. Kate Breslin wrote one of my all time favorites, For Such a Time, so make sure to add that to her back list. And Jocelyn Green, Becky Wade and Nicole Deese are fabulous!

    • I understand wanting to wait for the last of the Unblemished books to release —- binge reading them will be perfect! I need to pick up that book by Kate, too!!!

    • I KNOW! I hadn’t. A tragedy. But, I have a few of her older books I need to read ASAP, after the crazy amount of review books I have to read in the next 2 months because I CAN’T SAY NO to good literature. If only I could read as fast as you…..
