Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s all about my favorite authors I discovered in 2017. I’m kind of a creature of habit and don’t often pick up books by authors I don’t really know but I’ve been working on that. Even so, I didn’t think I’d get to ten, but I did easily so yay me!

Also, 100 points for you if you can already guess my MOST FAVORITE OF FAVORITES, my most dear author discovery of the year before scrolling to the bottom of this post 😉

Kerri Maniscalco

Stalking Jack The Ripper was the perfect blend of mystery, creepiness, romance and humor for me. I can’t wait to get my hands on Hunting Prince Dracula.

Kathryn Ormsbee

Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

I ca’t rave about this book enough. I mean, it has great romantic ace representation. I’m in love.

Cindy Pon

Want by Cindy Pon

A sci-fi heist set in futuristic Taipei sounds exactly like something I’d love and guess what? I did!

Mackenzi Lee

Monty is hilarious. Percy is a sweet angel. And Felicity is one kickass genius. I need more of these three.

Riley Redgate

Noteworthy by Riley Redgate

A girl cross-dressing as a boy to join a boys-only acapella group? Yes, it is as awesome as it sounds.

Jen Wilde

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

The cutest little ode to fandom geeks and filled with so many positive messages.

Madeline Miller

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Any mythology fan needs to have read this book. Even if you already know how it all ends and think you are ready, let me tell you… you are not.

Jandy Nelson

ill-give-you-the-sun-by-jandy-nelson

Beautiful, gorgeous art and complex family dynamics make this one of my top reads of 2017.

Julie Buxbaum

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

I mean, it has a penpal romance. Add waffles and a love for words and I AM SOLD. Already want to re-read this.

AND…

SAVING MY FAVORITE FOR LAST..

Annette Marie

And… you knew this was coming right? If there’s one TOP OF THE TOP author I discovered in 2017 it’s Annette Marie. I raved about her books in pretty much EVERY SINGLE POST in 2017. The Red Winter series is one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITES and her Steel & Stone series CURED THE LONGEST READING SLUMP I ever had. I adore her and her books and I’m starting 2018 with her Spell Weaver series so I can start the year in the best possible way I can imagine.

WHAT ARE SOME AUTHORS YOU DISCOVERED IN 2017?

    Oh, I love Kerri Maniscalco and her series. I cannot wait for the third book. A lot on here that I WANT to to read like Gentlemen’s Guide (though I own it, so soon), Tash Hearts Tolstoy, Queens of Geek, and The Song of Achilles.

    And I read I’ll Give You the Sun a couple years ago and really loved it too!

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      I’ll Give You The Sun and Tell Me Three Things were so amazing indeed! Annette Marie is not a contemporary but a fantasy writer, so it’s totally different, but I do love them a lot 🙂

    I loved the Song of Achilles. That was the first book I’ve read from her as well. And I have several of these on my to-read list. Which is awesome! Great list!

      Haha, glad I helped your TBR grow 🙂
      Oh, I think it depends on what you most love to read. My personal favorite was the Red Winter trilogy, which felt more like a (new) adult high fantasy with Japanese mythology. The Steel and Stone series has more of a YA urban fantasy vibe. It also has more books (five + a companion novella collection + a prequel trilogy focusing on a certain character from the series that is currently being published + a sequel coming sometime in the future), so it’s more of a commitment if you want to start 🙂 But I loved both, so I hope you will enjoy them as well!
