Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite New-To-Me Authors from 2020


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blog meme now hosted by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl!

This week's topic is:  Favorite New-To-Me Authors from 2020

Last year I read a lot of truly amazing new-to-me authors, which made this list hard to narrow down. In case you aren't familiar, the concept of "new-to-me" just means authors that have been around for a while that I only just discovered last year! There are actually a few on this list that published debuts last year so they're probably new to most people, haha, but regardess, these are all of the great new authors I finally read last year! (Also, if you see "???" next to "What I want to read next," it's because they don't currently have any other books out/upcoming that I could find!)

1. Stephen Graham Jones
What I read: The Only Good Indians (also Mapping the Interior last week!)
What I want to read next: Mongrels, Night of the Mannequins
