Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2014

- - - Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, where a new topic is given for a top ten list - - -

1. Krista and Becca Ritchie
Authors of the Addicted series and Calloway Sisters series
Creators of my OTP, Lily and Loren
And Connor and Rose. AND Ryke and Daisy.
I can't believe it hasn't even been a full year since I became addicted (heh) to their work!

2. Colleen Hoover
Author of the Slammed series, Hopeless series, Maybe Someday and Ugly Love
I don't know how I haven't read her books until this year (late this year).
Absolutely loved Maybe Someday, there is a CoHo binge in my future.

3. Veronica Rossi
Author of Under the Never Sky series
Creator of my OTP, Perry and Aria
Currently my favorite YA fantasy series! Full of adventure, action, friendship and FEELS.

4. Lex Martin
Author of the Dearest series
Fun and amusing. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and will be diving into the others soon!
Plus, Gavin Murphy <33

5. Katja Millay
Author of The Sea of Tranquility
Why does she only have one book?!??! *cries*
Beautiful writing and a wonderful meaning behind the story. I need more from her.

6. Nina Lane
Author of the Spiral of Bliss series
Creator of my OTP, Dean and Liv
One of my favorite adult contemporaries ever, so sweet and heart-warming.
I love that it's centers around a married couple and that the "happy-ever-after" isn't an end.

7. Rebecca Zanetti
Author of Sins Brother series, Dark Protector series and Maverick Montana series
I've only read the first book in the Sins Brother series but it was spectacular!
Great suspense and action. Looking forward to reading her other books.

10. Michelle Hodkin
Author of the Mara Dyer series
Book one pretty much blew my mind but I have yet to continue with the series!
It's on my to-do list for January because Noahhhhhhh <3

9. Rainbow Rowell
Author of Fangirl, Eleanor & Park, Landlines and Attachments
I read Fangirl a few weeks ago and fell in love with the story and its characters, especially Levi!
Will definitely be checking out her other books as well :D

10. A.C. Bextor
Author of the Lights of Peril series and Devil's Despair series.
I read the first book in the Devil's Despair series and loved it!
I will probably read her earlier work some time next year.


  1. I love Colleen Hoover! Great list!

  2. OOOOOOOBVIOUSLY Krista and Becca. No list about favorite authors and brilliance is complete without them! CoHo and Katja Millay are New Adult goddesses--that is all. AND OMG DON'T EVEN START WITH VERONICA ROSSI I AM HEART EYES ALL AROUND. I loved Fangirl as well, but I wasn't a fan of E&P, so definitely not recommending that, but um, I want to read Attachments? Heh. Michelle Hodkin and The Evolution is all you need in your life in January tbh. GET ON IT, JEN!

    1. WILL DO! I have it on hold at the library :D

  3. I still haven't read a Colleen Hoover book but I have Hopeless sitting on my nightstand just waiting to be picked up.
    I have read all Rainbow Rowell's books and Attachments is my favourite so of course I recommend that one! :)


    1. Colleen Hoover has a very smooth writing style that I very much enjoy so I hope you do as well! Looks like Landline will be my next Rainbow Rowell read :D Thanks for stopping by!

    2. I hope you enjoy Landline...I'll be honest it is my least favourite of her books, BUT I know I'm in the minority on that because MANY people love it! I hope you do too! =)

    3. Whoops, I actually meant Attachments would be first! Hahah. But Landline is on my tbr too :)

  4. Loved the list! Colleen Hoover and Katja Millay are very dear to me! I`ve decided to let Millay have only one book for now, when she is ready she will give us more quality writing! ;)

    1. Hahah that's so true but boy do I want another novel by her bad. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  5. Sweet list! I've been really wanting to read Under the Never Sky series!

    Here's my list if you would like to read it -

    1. YES. I hope you get to start UtNS soon because wowza it's fantastic! :D

  6. Woha you got to meet and read some amazing books there. I loved Maybe Someday, surprisingly. So yeah. There are some authors on this liks that I need to meet, like Rainbow but I hope that I will do it soon. Great post :)

    1. Hahah that is a surprise, but I'm glad you did!! I know your not the biggest fan of NA contemporaries ;)

  7. The Sea of Tranquility!! SIGHHH I love that book. Exactly my thoughts, why has she written only one book.
    And of course, Krista & Becca would top my list to for 2014 new-to-me authors as well.
    I've read Slammed and Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover but I need to read Maybe Someday because that seems to be everyone's fav.
    Great list Jae!

    1. Omg, yes you do please. I don't have much to go by since it was my first CoHo book but it's definitely one of my top favorite NA books. Plus, it had a soundtrack to go with it. Boom, mind-blown. I really hope you enjoy it too! I need to pick up Slammed soon. :)
