Top Ten Tuesday – 26th January 2021

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks topic is New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020. I read so many new authors in 2020, so here are my top 10 favourites.

  1. Chris Carter – An author many people have been badgering me to read for years! Surprise Surprise, I loved the Crucifix Killer and have already bought a few of his other books.
  2. Cara Hunter – Cara was recommended to me by my book bestie. I loved the first book in the series and the second is on my book trolley waiting to be read soon.
  3. Mike Gayle – Only read and own one book but I LOVED IT! So need to go and buy more by him and hopefully enjoy them as much as I did ‘Half a World Away’.
  4. M W Craven – Another recommendation from my book bestie. I am annoyed I didn’t find him sooner, I read the first book in the series and again absolutely loved it and quickly moved on to the second. The third is waiting for me on my kindle.
  5. Beth O’Leary – I loved The Flatshare so so much and have Th Switch on my TBR for this month, hoping to still squeeze it in for January.
  6. Hanya Yanagihara – A brand new author and book to me in 2020. I saw ‘A Little Life’ on Instagram and immediately thought, this is a book I need to read and I LOVED it.
  7. Malorie Blackman – An author which I was INCREDIBLY late to the party to read. I remember my friends reading and enjoying the Noughts and Crosses series in school but I never read it. Well in 2020 I finally did and really enjoyed the first two books, yet to read the rest of the series.
  8. Suzanne Collins – Another author which I was very late to enjoy. I had never read the hunger games before 2020, hard to believe I know. I’m disappointed I’d left it so late as I really enjoyed the series (have the fourth one waiting to be read).
  9. Rosamund Lupton – I read Three Hours following reading a review which I just couldn’t ignore. I loved the booked and have another one by her on my books I’ve promised to read in 2021. Hopefully I love all her writing.
  10. Terry Hayes – Terry came recommended to me by a work colleague. I had heard of I Am Pilgrim but it’s size was a little daunting. I’m glad I overcame that worry as I really enjoyed it.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday, drop me a comment and let me know some of your newly read authors in 2020.
