Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – New to Me Authors

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. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is authors that I read for the first time in 2020. (We did this for blogmas here.)

Pierce Brown

Seanan McGuire

Alisha Rai

Talia Hibbert

Katy Rose Pool

Tehlor Kay Mejia

Somaiya Daud

N.K. Jemisin

Bethany C. Morrow

These are all authors that I read for the first time in 2020. What authors were new to you last year?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Just do what you can.)
