TTT: 2021 New To Me Authors

So, funny story about this list. A few weeks ago, I was looking for an alternate topic for a Tuesday, and I saw this in the archive. Great! I wrote it, and then…noticed that it was THIS week’s topic. So, this one has been inadvertently done for a couple weeks.

I was surprised by how many new authors I tried in 2021—partly as a result of my new obsession with Contemporary Romance…I had WAY more than ten, but here are my faves:

Who did you read last year that was new to you? I can’t wait for your recommendations in the comments!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

  1. I’ve only read Christina Lauren on your list, but I loved the book I read and I’m excited to read more books by them. I also have books by Laura Dave and Matt Haig on my TBR. 🙂


  2. I discovered some of these authors last year like Christina Lauren, Matt Haig and Casey McQuiston and enjoyed them. I need to check out a few of these. Nice list, Lori.


  3. Nice list! I’m not much of a romance reader, so I haven’t tried any of those authors except Lauren. I enjoyed THE UNHONEYMOONERS since it was just super fun. I also enjoyed THE LAST THING HE TOLD ME. THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY, unfortunately, didn’t work all that well for me. The premise is a good one, though. Glad you found some fun new authors to love in 2021!

    Happy TTT!



  4. Matt Haig and Kalayna Price are two of my favs. And I have several of Christina Lauren’s books on my TBR list. And I love the way you put your post together this week. Very fun!


  5. Taylor Jenkins- Reid is someone I want to read more of. I kinda wish I had done this topic now- my reading was down so much last year I figured ah I wouldn’t have ten (or even clsoe to that) but I’m nodding my head at so many picks ha.

  6. I have a Casey Mcquiston book on my shelf, but haven’t read it yet. I love Christina Lauren and Taylor Jenkins Reid so much! Great list.


  7. I read quite a few authors that were new to me — but a fair number were non-fiction because the book was an interesting subject. I’ve also omitted some where I didn’t find the book(s) all that great.

    * Kim Michele Richardson The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
    Historical fiction about a packhorse librarian in 1930’s Kentucky

    * Maria Grace Jane Austen’s Dragons series
    Initially regency romance, Price & Prejudice crossed with light fantasy about a secret society of keepers of dragons; the series then continues on in the same world.

    * A.J. Hackwith Hell’s Library series

    * AJ Lancaster Stariel series
    Wonderful fantasy series that Lori has recommended before.

    * Lucy Score Riley Thorn series
    Funny mystery series that Lori has recommended before.

    * Kerry Greenwood Phryne Fisher series
    I’d see the TV show ‘Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries’ which was based on them, and finally read and enjoyed the first several books of the series; which I’ll get back to at some point.

    Non Fiction
    * Richard L Dunn Exploding Fuel Tanks – Saga of Technology That Changed the Course of the Pacific Air War

    * Caroline Criado Pérez Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

    * Edward C. Raymer Descent Into Darkness: Pearl Harbor, 1941–A Navy Diver’s Memoir

    * Robert A. Doughty Pyrrhic Victory: French Strategy and Operations in the Great War
