Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @thatartsyreadergirl. This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt, and we readers will write out a list as a response. We also have the option of doing our own thing. This week, our topic is New to Me Authors of 2021. Note: I didn’t count debuts I read as a part of this prompt. 

1- Katie Henry

This Will Be Funny Someday was one of my favorite reads of the year. I was surprised by how much I loved it. 

2- V.E. Schwab 

I read two books by V.E. Schwab last year, I really enjoyed Addie LaRue. 

3- Eric Smith

Don’t Read the Comments was a book I picked out on a whim to clear out some of my kindle TBR. I just loved this book so much. 

4- Sophie Gonzales 

Perfect On Paper was one of my favorite books of 2021. The story had so much heart and I loved all the characters. 

5- Crystal Maldonado 

Fat Chance, Charlie Vega was another novel that took me by surprise last year. This is another story with a lot of heart and amazing characters. 

6- Angie Thomas 

I read two books by Angie Thomas last year, and I believe she’s one of the best authors in the YA genre. I loved both The Hate U Give and On The Come Up. 

7- Chanel Cleeton

I’ve talked about this many times, but I really loved the Historical Fiction this author writes. The stories are interesting, and I love all the characters.  

8- Aiden Thomas 

Last year was the year I read Cemetery Boys. That book filled me with all the feels, and I had all the emotions while reading that book. 

9-  Elizabeth Acevedo 

I read two books by Elizabeth Acevedo last year as well. With The Fire On High was my favorite, however; I also really enjoyed Clap When You Land. 

10-  Rachel Lynn Solomon 

Today Tonight Tomorrow was almost on my list of top reads last year. I loved this YA Romance, and it was so well done.

  1. I haven’t read any of these authors, sadly, but the last one you mentioned sounds very familiar, I think I’ve heard good things about a boo of hers. 🙂
