Top Ten Tuesday || New To Me 2018 Authors Who Reveal I Was Under A Huge Rock

Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s prompt is New To Me Authors I Read In 2018. 2018 was the year I started blogging (!!!!), and I was really introduced to a lot of popular hyped authors I’d never heard of, as well as just reading fabulous books by new authors, so I just had to share my list!!

1. Jenny Han: Amazing author of TATBILB, aka my favorite contemporary ever!!

2. Sarah J Maas: Everyone knows her, you love her or you hate her, and I’m definitely in the former!

Well. As you can see, I was certainly living under a HUMONGOUS rock to have never heard of those authors before 2018!! This just goes to show how wonderful it is to blog, because I can’t imagine never having heard of them now!!


Let’s Chat

Who are some of your favorite new 2018 authors? Were any of these authors new to you too? I’d love to chat in the comments below 🙂

  1. I agree about Jenna Evans Welch- I loved Love & Gelato! Rainbow Rowell as well, although all of thee authors really are pretty awesome, judging from all the blogger love I see for them!

  2. Oh wow! I can see SO many authors on your list that I adore. Becky Albertalli, Kasie West and Morgan Matson are 3 of my auto-buy authors. What a reading year you had!

  3. Hey! I was hanging out under the rock with you! It was large enough for both of us, apparently. Laini Taylor, Rainbow Rowell, and SJM were all hiding somewhere that wasn’t under the rock for me. LOL this week’s TTT was more like an embarrassing confession than anything else. I was going to say I still haven’t read Leigh Bardugo, but that’s not true. I read one or two of her short stories last year.

  4. I read Leigh Bardugo for the first time this year as well! Apparently I also live under a rock. I’m horrible at keeping up with new releases. I’d like to read some of Jenny Han’s work as well as Sarah J Maas. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  5. Welcome to the blogging community where you can’t go 3 hours without hearing about Sarah J Maas 😂😂 haha I hadn’t heard of her before blogging either but EVERYONE seems to love her 🙂 (tho I still haven’t read any of her stuff it is on my “eventual TBR”)

  6. Great post!

    I literally a few days ago just finished reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. So good and the Netflix film was perfectly adapted. I’m actually planning on reading Love, Simon next.

    One of my favorite authors I discovered in 2018 was Caroline Kepnes. YOU was best thriller I’ve ever read. The TV Series was perfectly adapted for the 1st Season too.

  7. Yay to so many of these authors! Please, please, please tell me that ACOTAR was your first read by her? Throne of Glass is good, buuuut the first book is deceiving. I love Becky Albertali’s writing style and the way she writes her characters is just…💋 I need to finally read Smoke & Bone and Strange the Dreamer (since I kinda sorta own both). This list made me very happy, is that weird? lol

  8. Fangirl is such a good book! I love it so much, but it’s been a while since I’ve read it. Guess that means it’s time for a reread! Levi is like the definition of a sweet boy, he’s so precious.

  10. After reading Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (honestly, I like the title Love, Simon better), I have been wanting to read other books from her but haven’t had the time too. I am hoping to get to them this year.

    1. Omg yess it takes too much effort to type Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda and I am a lazy sloth lol. I only read Simon and Leah, and I loved Simon and hated Leah, but I hope to read more from her this year!


  11. Oh my gosh, I adore EVERY SINGLE AUTHOR on your list and I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed them this past year/discovered them. I’m especially excited to see Jenny Han getting so much love! Great picks. Hope 2019 brings you many more good reads and new-to-you authors!

  12. Kasie’s books are all sunshine and happiness, and I love ’em! Also, three cheers for Jenny Han. Loved her book. Now I’m reminded I need to read more from Morgan (I read her ‘Amy & Roger’ novel a looong time ago) and someday I still must read a book by Leigh Bardugo! Happy Tuesday – and thanks so much for the visit to Finding Wonderland. 🙂

  13. I loved Jenny Han this year, she was new to me aswell as Kasie West.
    Owns Leigh’s, Morgan’s, Becky’s, Jenna’s, Jenn’s and Laini’s books, yet they sit on my shelves, unread.
    I started reading SJM’s books last year and caught all up on the rest of her series this year.
    Read Fangirl like 2-3 years ago so at least I like two of the popular authors

    But can i join you under said rock please, i’m ashamed of myself?
