2. Marissa Meyer - I hesitated on picking up a Marissa Meyer book. I don't read much YA and even less dystopia style books but I heard such great things about it so I finally gave in and gave Cinder a chance. I LOVED it! I enjoyed Scarlet as well and now can't wait to read the rest of the series.
3. Rick Riordan - Yep, I just now caved and read Percy Jackson and it was amazing! I don't know what took me so long!
4. Jojo Moyes - Another author that I have no idea what took me so long but after getting obsessed with the trailer for Me Before You I finally took the plunge and read the book. So good!
6. Robyn Carr - So many of my favorite bloggers are crazy about her books and I'd been wanting to read her books for ages. This year I read The Wanderer and The Life She Wants and thoroughly enjoyed them both.
7. J.T. Ellison - This was one of 2 authors I read this year that are prolific and so perfect for me that I feel like Faye should have sent me a book with a note saying "read this". Not only is Ellison a fantastic mystery author but she sets her books in the Nashville area which I'm super familiar with and its always an extra treat to read about a familiar place. I read Field of Graves and it was such a page turner!
8. Laura Griffin - And here's the 2nd author! I love a good romantic suspense book and Deep Dark definitely delivered! I couldn't put it down!
9. Elly Griffiths - I had been wanting to read her books for ages and I love archeology mixed in with my mysteries. I'm glad I made time for this one this year! I read the first book in the series, The Crossing Places, and can't wait to read more.
10. P.G. Wodehouse - I had heard the name Jeeves and vaguely knew it was a series with a butler but that was about it. On a whim I got a Jeeves audiobook and it was pure delight! Can't wait to read/listen to more. I read/listened to Carry on Jeeves and it was lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Bertie Wooster's mishaps and how Jeeves pulls him out of trouble,
Who did you read for the first time this year?
