Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016



Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish". Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

Looking at that list, this was a great reading year. I found so many new and interesting authors. Well, some of heir names were already familiar to me but I had never read anything by them. Others were completely new to me. But all in all, I found some wonderful books and some great new authors.

  1. You always have such eclectic taste in books. I step out of my comfort zone from time to time, but I'm not nearly as widely read as you. You're quite inspiring.

    1. It's so nice of you to say that, Janet. I love the internet for always showing me new books, the friends I made here who share my passion and make me think further all the time.

      Have a merry Christmas,
