Top 10 Tuesday: New Favorite Authors of 2015

Welcome back to another fun installment of Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is Top Ten New-To-Me Favorite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015. I love that we are doing so many top 10 lists looking back or looking forward. It was great to look back at some of my favorite authors from this year. Not quite 10, but close ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!

Marissa Meyer // One of my absolute favorite authors from this year! I have become a groupie of the Lunar Chronicles–still need to get my hands on Winter!! I asked for the entire series for Christmas so I am hoping ๐Ÿ™‚ Reviews of first three novels here, here, and here. Review of Fairest coming soon!

Anthony Doerr // I loved All the Light We Cannot See because it is beautiful and moving. Hoping that Doerr publishes more in the future. Check out my review here.

Erin Morgenstern // Another favorite that I hope to readย more of! The Night Circus is enchanting and intriguing. A must read forย basically everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ Fun fact, this was my first review here on Greenish Bookshelf!

Kiera Cass // How I adore The Selection series! It’s just a feel good romance for me. Books I love to reread to experience it over and over. Review here.

Brodi Ashton // I read Ashton’s Everneath series before I started my blog earlier this year. A clever series on the Persephone myth.

Jonathan Safran Foer //ย I found Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close compelling and unique. I’m glad to have read it. See my review here.

Nina George // I think she only has one novel out, as far as I know. And it truly is a life changing, beautiful story for anyone who loves books. My thoughts here.

Corrie ten Boom // One from my classics club list. I am glad to finally have experienced herย beautiful story of faith and hope in times of darkness. Review here.

Who are your favorites from this year?
Who do I need to read next year?

  1. The Hiding Place is one of my all time favorite books – I’m glad you liked it ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am a diehard Lunar Chronicles fan – and I was able to meet Marissa Meyer this year, which was awesome! She is funny, sweet, and humble. I hope you like the rest of the series ๐Ÿ™‚
    One of my favorite books I’ve read this year was “Wolf by Wolf” by Ryan Graudin – it was one of my only 5 star books ๐Ÿ˜‰ My favorite author I discovered this year is Intisar Khanani (my other 5 star) – I am basically a fangirl now – she writes truly diverse and unique fantasy novels, and they’re beautiful too.

    I tagged you for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award (don’t feel like you have to do it, but it was pretty fun. Also feel free to bend the rules!) If you want to do it, the link is here:
