This weeks topic is:
So in 2014, I apparently didn't read that many new authors that I hadn't discovered until this year. My Goodreads seems to be full of authors I've already read before this year and debut authors. So getting a list of 10 was pretty hard, but I managed it - just.
1. Colleen Hoover
Yes. 2014 was the year I discovered Colleen Hoover - which has made it a fantastic year. I picked up Hopeless in February of this year and now I've read nearly every single book she's published.
2. Jay Crownover
Jay Crownover has been one of my favourite discoveries of 2014. Her 'Marked Men' series is one of my all time favourite New Adult series.
3. Jenny Han
Burn for Burn was my first Jenny Han book this year, and I absolutely loved it! I then moved onto starting the Summer series and most recently read To All the Boys I've Loved Before - which is my favourite of hers.
4. Diana Gabaldon
While I've only read Outlander, I have every intention of reading the rest of the series when I have the time. Outlander was Brittany's recommendation - she even sent me it! - and I completely fell in love with it.
5. Brigid Kemmerer
Brigid Kemmerer was one I'd seen a lot of bloggers going on and on about how amazing her books are, so this year I finally decided to start reading her books. I've only read the first two books in her Elemental series, and I really enjoyed them!
6. Samantha Young
Samantha Young was recommended to me by quite a few people this year - because I said I hadn't read a lot of books set in Scotland - and I'm so glad I decided to start reading her books this year. I fell in love with her Dublin Street series and I'll probably read anything by her now.
7. Kody Keplinger
I only read The DUFF very recently, but I'm kicking myself for not picking it up sooner! I absolutely loved it, and Keplingers writing. I can't wait to read more of her books.
8. Gayle Forman
I meant to pick up Gayle Forman's books last year, but never got around to it. So this year was the year I finally read If I Stay. I don't think I loved it as much as everyone else, but I still really enjoyed it. I've got a couple of her books sitting on my bookcase, so I'll definitely be reading more for her next year.
9. Cat Clarke
Cat Clarke is another author I've been meaning to get around to for quite some time, and finally did this year. I read A Kiss in the Dark and completely fell in love with Clarke's writing. She's such a fantastic author.
10. Ann Aguirre
I picked up Ann Aguirre's New Adult series this year and I enjoyed it. I really like her writing, and I've been meaning to start her books for a while so I'm definitely looking forward to reading more from her - especially her Razorland series!
