Welcome to another Tuesday, Dear Readers!
Today’s TOP TEN TUESDAY topic is “new to me” authors. In 2020, of the 118 books I read, I was surprised to discover that only 33 (28%) were by authors I was already familiar with! Part of it has to do with being able to bingeread several books in a series and playing catch-up whereas I’m already mostly caught up with the latest from my favorite authors.
My list below includes ten “new” authors who really impressed me. I can’t wait to see what they do next.

It sounds like you found lots of great new authors last year. 🙂
I’m hoping to read Rachel Caine this year!
My Top Ten
It makes me both sad and happy to see Caine on your list. Such a great author and series. So sad she’s gone.
Laura Lippman is local to Baltimore. I’ve met her a few times.
Robert Galbraith is another pen name for J.K. Rowling. 🙂
So fun to discover new authors!
