Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Authors I Read for the First Time in 2022

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is New to Me Author in 2022.  Most of the authors and books have been around for quite some time but 2022 was the year I finally read something by them!

1.  Simone St. James - I've been wanting to read this author forever but this year I finally picked up The Book of Cold Cases and really enjoyed it.

2.  Joy Ellis - I read the first book in her DI Nikki Galena series and can't wait to continue with the series.

3.  Mercedes Lackey - I read The Fairy Godmother this year and really enjoyed it.  I'm not much of a fantasy reader so I probably won't be reading her books regularly but I do want to read more from her.

4.  Richard Osman - I couldn't resist picking up The Thursday Murder Club and really enjoyed it.

5.  Fiona Davis - I read and absolutely loved The Magnolia Palace this year and can't wait to read more by her.  

6.  Alice Feeney - I read Daisy Darker earlier this year and it kept me completely captivated.  

7.  Maddie Day - I have been wanting to read this prolific cozy author for ages and I finally did this year.  Now I just need to get caught on on her multiple series!

8.  Anne Bogel - I read and really enjoyed I'd Rather Be Reading and now I need to read the rest of her books.

9.  Genevieve Cogman - I finally read The Invisible Library and now I really need to continue the series.

10. Lucy Foley - I read The Paris Apartment earlier this year and loved the atmosphere that Foley created and can't wait to read more from her.

What authors did you read for the first time in 2022?


  1. I feel certain that if you liked one of Fiona Davis' books you will like them all. She is a consistently good writer, I think.

  2. You have quite a few authors I enjoy. Most of Feeney's work is intriguing.

  3. Alice Feeney is an author I've been meaning to try. Her books always look so good.

  4. Alice Feeney was new to me also. I've read Genevieve Cogman, Simone St. James, Lucy Foley, and Richard Osman for awhile now.

    Anne - Books of My Heart

  5. I haven't read Richard Osman's books yet, but I do have his Thursday Murder club book on hold at the library. I hope I get it soon!

  6. Oh, I've read several of these authors. Let see, Joy Ellis, Lucy Foley, Anne Bogel, Alice Feeney, Richard Osman, and Simone St. James. I'm enjoying looking at the lists people have made.

  7. Simone St. James is one of my favorite authors! And Lucy Foley was a new author to me last year, too. :D

  8. I do love Genevieve Cogman! I really need to read more of Simone St. James's work.

  9. One author who stands out in this list is Fiona Davis as I want to give her a go. Maybe she will be on my 2023 list!

  10. My husband introduced me to Mercedes Lackey when we were in college and she'll always have a special place in my heart for that reason. I am glad you enjoyed The Fairy Godmother! Yay for Genevieve Cogman and her Invisible Library series! I hope you discover many new-to-you great authors in 2023!
