Top Ten Tuesday #16


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Each week features a different topic, and you make a top ten list about it.
 
 
 
This weeks topic is the top ten new to me authors of 2012.
 
 
1. Amanda Hocking - I read the first two books of the Watersong series and still need to read her more popular Trylle Trilogy.
 
 
2. Maggie Stiefvater - I read The Raven Boys but still need to read her Shiver Trilogy.
 
 
3. Julie Kagawa - I read The Immortal Rules but still need to read her Iron Fey Series.
 
 
4. Myra McEntire - I read Hourglass and Timepiece and really loved them.
 
 
5. Kody Keplinger - I read the DUFF and can't wait to read her other books.
 
 
6. Stephanie Perkins - I read Anna and the French Kiss and can't wait to read Lola and the Boy Next Door.
 
 
7. Rick Riordan - I can't believe it has taken me this long to start the Percy Jackson series.
 
 
8. David Levithan - I read quite a few of his books this year and loved every single one of them.
 
 
9. Laurie Halse Anderson - I read Speak and I hear that her other books are just as good.
 
 
10. Simone Elkeles - I read four of her books this year and will probably read the rest next year.

  1. Second list I've seen with Rick Riordan! The kids at my school love the series. Maybe I'll get a chance to read them over Christmas.
    Here's my TTT.

  2. Nice list! I love David Levithan's books (Every Day was amazing), and I'm looking forward to the Stephanie Perkins books I just picked up at the library. Happy reading!

  4. Laurie Halse Anderson and Stephanie Perkins are on my list, too. I loved Speak by Anderson, and I have no idea why it took my so long to finally read it. Actually, I do know why. I think I was nervous because I knew what it was about. I wasn't sure if Speak would be too sad for me, but it wasn't. I mean, of course there were parts where I teared up, but I could handle it.
