Top Ten New To Me Authors I Read In 2012

 -- Originally created by The Broke and Bookish


Cassandra Clare
Compelling. Gripping. Love love love the characters in her books (especially the infernal devices series) 

Marissa Meyer
One of the most imaginative authors I have read all year, am so excited (if you hadn't gathered) for more books by her.

Michael Grant
His work with characters was amazing. Such a full cast of characters and you knew so much about them all - not everyone can do that. The gone series is ridiculously gripping so far, brilliant concepts.

Stieg Larsson
I'm not normally into crime fiction but his work is to die for and is everything you would want in a novel of that description.


George R. R. Martin
Epic. Do I need to say any more?

I would put Veronica Roth and Suzanne Collins on the list for Divergent and The Hunger Games respectively but I thought their sequels lacked so much of the first books that I didn't think they deserved a top mention for me. 

A lot of other authors have really impressed me but they haven't blown me away like the ones I have listed above!
