Top Ten Tuesday January 15: New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

It has been a minute and a half since I did a Top Ten Tuesday, which you can learn more about here! Today the topic is New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018. I think almost every author I read in 2018 was new, and I found some new favourites honestly.


Celeste Ng: I read both of Celeste Ng’s books in 2018. Do you know how rare it is for me to actually read every book by an author????

Kazuo Ishiguro: I read Never Let Me Go early 2018, and it was one of the best I read. It was seriously amazing, and I want to read all his other books.

Ta-Nehisi Coates: I buddy read Between the World and Me with Rebecca earlier this year, and I loved it so much. I definitely want to read all his other books.

Laini Taylor: Strange the Dreamer ended up being one of the biggest surprises of 2018, and I can’t wait to read Muse of Nightmares.

Taylor Jenkins Reid: we all know that The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was one of the best books I read last year. I’ve heard a ton of good things about Reid’s other books too.

Haruki Murakami: Murakami is a really talented writer, and I want to read most of his books.

Sylvia Plath: The Bell Jar spoke to me in a way that most books haven’t. It was so good.

Min Jin Lee: Pachinko is maybe one of the best books I’ve read in a while. Seriously just such a beautiful book.

Neal Shusterman: okay guys, I get the hype. Shusterman definitely deserves it.

Lisa See: ditto for Lisa See. Shanghai Girls is one of the most heart-wrenching books I’ve ever read.


So, those were the authors I discovered in 2018! Have you read anything by any of them? If you have, which book by them should I try? Let me know!

  1. Oooh there are some great authors I’ve read books by (Celeste Ng! Min Jin Lee! Lisa See! Taylor Jenkins Reid!) and some that I’ve heard wonderful things about and need to read in the next year. Terrific list!

    1. So glad you agreed about TJR! I would definitely recommend Strange the Dreamer, though I haven’t read anything else by Laini Taylor yet.

      I read Unwind! It had been on my TBR for AGES so I finally got to it and loved it!
