TTT: New To Me Authors in 2020

 



 TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl .  If you want to quadruple the size of your TBR AND find a bunch of great book blogs to follow head on over and check it out!

The topic this week is: authors that were new to me in 2020.

Sounds pretty clear, but there were sixty authors I read for the first time this year, so I couldn't keep it to ten. Some of these are authors who have been around for awhile; others released their debut. All are authors I hope to read more from!





























Most of the list is in alphabetical order, because not only are they all amazing, it's also hard to compare YA fantasy to adult nonfiction to middle grade graphic novels. But there is one author who stood out to me this year in an even more significant way.

  1. Dreyer's English sounds like a very handy book to keep around!

  2. The Dreyer looks fin - but I am saying that as an English teacher. Have you read the Mark Forsyth books Etymologicon, Elements of Style...? These are the fifteen authors who were new to me last year - quite a few outside my usual reading genre.

  6. I love illustrated memoirs -- both of those caught my attention but I haven't gotten around to them yet; I'm glad to hear you loved them.

  7. Guess I need to read N. K. Jemison now. What significant way did she stand out?

  8. A few of those authors were new to me too. I'm reading Irby right now, just finished Cemetery Boys and Rayberaer was one of my favorite books of 2020.

  9. We have missed seeing you around the blogosphere, Wendy. I hope life creates a small space of calm for you to pop back in again soon.
