Top Ten Tuesday

New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2021

Hello everybody! I hope things are going well for you in your corner of the world! So far January has been it’s typical cold and dry self, as our area slowly recovers from the snow storm that hit us a few weeks back (yes, still recovering). I’m pleased to say that I’m now completely recovered from the fall I took two weeks back, which is a relief, and I hope to get out for a hike sometime in the near future.

This week I’m showing off my favorite authors that I discovered last year. It’s an all-female extravaganza, with women hailing from many parts of the world, all writing varied and interesting stories. There’s science fiction and fantasy, humor and Wuxia, middle grade novels and manga- and more! All below the cut!

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by That Artsy Reader Girl.

  1. I’m glad to hear that you are feeling better after your fall a couple of weeks ago. The only author on your list that I have read is Nora Roberts, and it has been years since I’ve picked any of her books up, and I may have to change that soon.

  2. Nice list! The only one of these I have read is The Awakening, which I really enjoyed…but several others are on my want-to-read list (Zen Cho’s book, and I still need to read Emily Tesh’s Silver in the Wood.) And I’m putting the Anne Ursu book on my to-read list right now, and possibly a few of the others as well, that I hadn’t come across before.

    1. While it didn’t blow me away, I still enjoyed myself- the world was very immersive and I liked the realistic approach she took to magic. The side characters were likeable, the plot well-paced, and the leads got very excited about pizza, which I find very relatable. All in all, it was a good read, and I plan to finish the trilogy as well as read some of her other fantasy titles.
