Top Ten Tuesday – New-To-Me Authors of 2015


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten New-To-Me Favorite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015

  1. It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year, but the wonderful S. Usher Evans was one of the first “new to me” authors of 2015. I think I read Double Life on New Year’s! [Review]
  2. Kelsey Macke quickly became a favorite [local!] author when I read Damsel Distressed. [Review]
  3. Julie Kagawa for the Blood Eden series, even though I still need to read the third one. [Review]
  4. Christina McMullen. I read Kind of Like Life this year, and I look forward to seeing her other works (some of which are already on my kindle). She is also local. [Review]
  5. Rainbow Rowell. I listened to Eleanor & Park over the summer, and instantly fell in love. [Review]

I’ve read more authors than listed above, but they were some I’ve read before. Here are four authors that I hope to read and expect to love before the end of 2015

  1. Heather Letto
  2. Jenna Nelson
  3. Emmie Mears
  4. GS Jennsen

Top Ten Tuesday – Paranormal Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Paranormal Reads Header

I had to do some digging in my “read” shelf on Goodreads to remember some of these, because paranormal books aren’t my typical haunt, and I tried not to add those that I consider more fantasy than paranormal, but they often intermingle–at least to me. Not necessarily listed in “Top” order. Covers link to Goodreads.

44 by Jools Sinclair – I loved the twist in this one, so much so that I actually remember it!
The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine – My mother-in-law got me started on these, I think I still have a couple to read. Fun reads, though!
Blood Eden series by Julie Kagawa – I loved seeing Julie at NTTBF this year, and when I found The Immortal Rules on Overdrive, I had to read it. This is my most recent paranormal read, and I loved it! Although I still have to read the last in the series.
The Dark Saga (Dark Carpathian) by Christine Feehan – The first few of these were my introduction into adult romance while in high school, and actually they may have been among some of the first paranormal books I ever read.
The House of Grey by Collin Earl – Honestly I don’t remember much about this, but I liked it enough when I read it to give it five stars on Amazon…
Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz – I was a huge Dean Koontz fan during my high school years, and Odd Thomas was among my favorites!
Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn – Not having the ability to read minds is a danger in this world. I remember reading and liking this book quite well. Maybe I should check out the rest of the trilogy.
The Emerald Talisman by Brenda Pandos – It’s been a while, but I remember this being an entertaining read…
Anathema by Megg Jensen – One of the books I read when I first got my first kindle, and another series I need to finish. There are more to Reychel’s dreams than she realizes…(I honestly hope I’m thinking of the right story.)
Hollowland by Amanda Hocking – Another of the first books I read on my first kindle. Honestly when I read the Blood Eden series by Julie Kagawa, I was reminded a lot of the journey the MC goes on in this book. It’s the zombie apocalypse, and Remy is trying to get to the rumored safe place that might have a cure.

Top Ten Tuesday – Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me

This is part of the Top Ten Tuesday series hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.wishes

  1. I wish for the ability to stop time so I can read an entire book without interruptions missing other things.
  2. I wish I had the (unwritten) rest of The Madness Method series by J. Leigh Bralick.
  3. I wish I had the rest of The Razia Series by S. Usher Evans
  4. I wish I could project the movie from my head as I read, so I could share what I see with those around me.
  5. I wish I had an unlimited amount of money to spend on books. Like, just connect the “buy with one click” button to some billionaire’s account, I only use it to buy books anyway.
  6. I wish I had a perfect memory for the books I’ve read. Once a bit of time has passed, a few main concepts or characters or lines might stick with me, but the rest fades out. I’d like to be able to remember them without reading the entire thing again. (This would have also come in useful during college….hmm….)
  7. I wish I could attend all the bookish conventions!
  8. I wish I could give every child a book they would absolutely love, and the ability to read it.
  9. I wish I could visit *all* the libraries and *all* the bookstores and learn all their little histories and secrets.
  10. I wish I could hang out with characters from a book once I’ve finished it.

Wow, this one is going to be hard, because I find myself not wanting to quit anything bookish. So let’s go with the opposite instead.

  1. Sharing my joy of reading with my son
  2. The smell of books
  3. The countless other worlds I’ve visited
  4. The amazing community of readers and authors, especially now with social media
  5. The joy of walking through a bookstore
  6. Bookish events! To be honest, I didn’t even know these existed even a year ago, but I’m loving them!
  7. Imagining how fictional characters would react to certain situations or conversations
  8. StalkingFollowing authors online
  9. All the amazing book covers
  10. Knowing more about books than movies

Books I Can’t Believe I’ve Never Read

This is part of the Top Ten Tuesday series started at The Broke and the Bookish.

I haven’t read enough mainstream publications recently to really make “if you like this, read this” type recommendations. Instead I’ve chosen to use a past topic.

Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I’ve Never Read

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – Link to Goodreads
  1. Books 5, 6, and 7 of Harry Potter
  2. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
  3. Pride and Prejudice
  4. The Scarlet Letter
  5. Gone with the Wind
  6. The Chronicles of Narnia
  7. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
  8. The Fault in Our Stars
  9. Alice in Wonderland
  10. Moby Dick

Some of these are especially surprising, being that I got through a degree in English literature without reading them!
