Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today, the topic is Top 10 new-to-me authors I discovered last year.

1, Alix E Harrow

I read her novella Spindle Splintered. It’s a very modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty and I loved it.

2, Adian Tchaikovsky

I’ve been meaning to read Tchaikovsky for quite some time and when I finally did, I wasn’t disappointed. Children of Time was a great read.

3, Blake Crouch

Dark Metter was a great thriller.

4, Lawrence Block

Another writer I’ve been meaning to try. The Burglar in the Closet was very entertaining.

5, Alexis Hall

The Affair of the Mysterious Letter was a very good homage to Sherlock Holmes and has a lot of weird fantasy elements, too.

6, S. K. Dunstall

Stars Uncharted was a fast-paced space opera with mystery. It has very entertaining characters.

7, Jason M. Hugh

Zero World is an SF thriller, set mostly in an alternate Earth.

8, Edward Ashton

Mickey7 is also a fast-paced SF adventure.

9, Matthew Costello, Neil Richards

These authors write a cozy mystery series set in a small English town of Charringham.

10, Tracey Deonn

Legendborn has a new twist in the King Arthur mythos.
