Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2017

Hello beautiful people!

Well, I’ve made a decision to discontinue “Top Ten Tuesday” posts (…I may have already mentioned this in my monthly wrap up but that’s okay). I love them but they’re pretty long and take a while to finish; this is probably the reason as to why I started “Top 5 Wednesdays”. So…this is my LAST and FINAL “Top Ten Tuesday”.

If you ever have an inking to read them, please look under the “Bookish Posts” subheading or use the search bar.

Remember that you can find the weekly topics at The Broke and the Bookish page!

  1. Becky Albertalli, Mackenzi Lee and Nicola Yoon are also authors that were new to me in 2017! While I didn’t really like Everything Everything all that much, I really enjoyed Nicola’s writing style so I definitely want to read more of her work! I absolutely loved TGGTVAV and I can’t wait for its sequel to come out!!! My favourite new-to-me author of the year has to be Becky Albertalli though! I already knew her before I read her books and I thought she was super sweet and kind, but now that I’ve read her books I love her even more! She’s just awesome ❤ Great post, Jenna!
