TOP TEN TUESDAY: New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point, ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here. 

Looking back on my 2020 reads, I saw that I added a good number of authors I never read before, and that some of them introduced me to series I either did not know about, or had not started yet.

So, without further ado, here are (in no particular order) the ten new authors who brightened my TBR in the past year:

Becky Chambers, Michael Connelly and Vivian Shaw get the lion’s share in this department, since the covers I listed are simply place-holders for the rest of their respective series, two of which still have several books to explore… But that’s for the (hopefully near) future! 😉

            1. Probably more… Since I do practically all or my reading through ebooks, there is no problem with storage space, and I tend to accumulate books like squirrels do with acorns 😀
              Then I get distracted by NetGalley ARCs, and the books in my TBR have to wait…

  1. I would love to read Ring Shout. It’s one of those books that I really regret not getting on board with and have now added it to my list to pick up a copy. I’m sure I read somewhere that it had been optioned for adaptation – but I might have made that up!

  2. I completely agree about Robert Bennet Jackson and Becky Chambers – and I’m very intrigued about Lina Rather! I think I’ve got P. Djeli Clark on my TBR… Cracking list here, Maddalena:))

      1. I know that she was working on some other things (she used to be very local to me before she moved to Arizona with her wife so I went to a reading of hers at our local con before stuff was shut down) so I’m hopeful we’ll see some interesting things from her in the future!

        1. Before tackling the Wayfarers series with “The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet”, I read the novella “To Be Taught, if Fortunate”, that is a standalone and gave me a good idea of Chambers’ style and themes, so I wonder if that might work for your as well… 🙂

  3. I hadn’t thought about looking for how many reads were by authors new to me. I’ll have to take a look. I did thoroughly enjoy Sisters of the Vast Black, and only recently got into Robert Jackson Bennett, though by way of his Divine Cities books. There are several others here I’d love to read.
