Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Artsy Reader where each week they post a new top ten list and ask fellow bookish folk to share their lists on that topic. This week:
New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2022:
I really enjoyed her debut, A Flicker in the Dark last year and her second book All the Dangerous Things was even better! Looking forward to whatever she comes up with next!
Kimi Cunningham Grant
Her writing was beautiful and the story riveting!
I adored Kit McBride Gets a Wife so much! It was a slow burn, sweetly passionate, and made me laugh several times! I'm so excited for the next one: Marrying Off Morgan McBride!
I added Hidden Pictures after seeing that it won Goodreads Best Horror for 2022. I understood why after finishing. My husband and I listened to the audio in one go. Long car ride home. I hope he writes more adult horror/mysteries.
R. J. Jacobs
Always the First to Die had a slasher film vibe to it. Scary but a little bit of fun too. Maybe a little reminiscent of Grady Hendrix? Looking forward to his next book: This is How We End Things.
One Night on the Island was oh-so-lovely romance! Gorgeous writing with clever banter. I adored the quirky and lovable people of this small island.
Kate Forster's writing is beautiful, full of emotion and funny! I enjoyed both but The Upside Down Christmas was my favorite. Must read more from her!
When I figured out where it was headed, wow! What a twist. This was good! I have the audio of her newest, The Girls Who Disappeared from the library. I just need to make time to listen to it!
I've been a fan of Whelan's audiobook narration for a while now so I was pleasantly surprised that she's actually a talented writer as well! Thank You For Listening (which is also narrated by her) was amazing!
Summer on the Island was the first Brenda Novak book I've read even though she's been a popular writer for many years. It was part women’s fiction, part romance with a little bit of danger mixed in and I really enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to her next: The Seaside Library.
