Hey loves! Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s prompt is Bookish Discoveries I Made In 2019. I’ve decided to do New Authors I Discovered In 2019 because I found so many new amazing ones! Mostly because I used to live under a rock and and everybody else knew about these authors and I didn’t, but shh I know about them now, and also a few amazing debuts!
1. Stephanie Garber
I finally started reading the Caraval series last January, and finished it over the summer when Finale came out! At least I didn’t have to wait! I love her enchanting storytelling, and also the back of my head was in her insta story at Yallwest so I’m cool now.
Books I read: Caraval, Legendary, Finale
2. Sangu Mandanna
I loved reading A Spark of White Fire and its sequel, A House Of Rage And Sorrow, and I absolutely can’t wait to finish the series when the next book comes out!
Books I read: A Spark of White Fire, A House Of Rage And Sorrow
