Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top Ten New-To-Me Fiction Authors I Read In 2017



Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Below (in no particular order of preference) are my favorite new-to-me fiction authors of 2017. 

1. Ebony Olson ~ I loved her novel, Black Mark's Resistance.
2. Susan Rivers ~ I loved her novel, The Second Mrs. Hockaday.
3. Mary Frame ~ I loved her novel, Imperfect Chemistry.
4. Amy Engel ~ I loved her novel, The Roanoke Girls.

  4. I don't recognize most of these names, although I have met the mother/daughter team that is Jo Noelle. I was in a critique group with them at a writing conference a few years ago. I have THE ROANOKE GIRLS on my TBR list. Just haven't gotten to it yet.

    Happy TTT!

  5. I've heard The Roanoke Girls is disturbing. It is also the only one I've heard of on your list. There are just too many books and so little time.

    1. The Roanoke Girls is well written and yes, very disturbing as it deals with incest.

    1. Yes, The Vegetarian was a very unusual read for sure, which made it appealing as it was so different from what I've read before.

  24. I've seen The Roanoke Girls on blogs/booktube, but haven't taken a close look at it. The title is certainly interesting, and if I'm thinking of the right book, the cover is the same! Glad to know you discovered some good new books and authors. :)

    Appreciate you visiting Finding Wonderland.

  26. Juliet Takes a Breath! How did I forget that book this year?! I will certainly have to read that ASAP. My favorite new author for this year... Daphne du Maurier, if I had to pick one. She's not new in 2017, but she's new to me!
