I am a creature of habit and I normally don’t venture into the unknown. Yeah, I know. I’m boring. But last year was a revelation to me. I actually started reading outside my comfort zone and discovered a few new-to-me authors along the way!

Jennifer L. Armentrout

I first picked up her book, Wait for You on a whim and I was SOLD. This is perhaps the best book I read last year and I can’t stop recommending this book like crazy! I am currently in an NA kick because of this book!

Christina Lauren

I first discovered this writing duo when I found out that they will be signing books at The Ripped Bodice in early December. So, I decided to pick up Beautiful Bastard and was I surprised. AND HOOKED! AND OMG!!!! I practically binged read some of their backlist books! Eeep! Sweet Filthy Boy is perhaps one of the best ones I read from their backlist.

Tessa Bailey

I first read her book Disorderly Conduct and I loved it! I also read books from her backlist and was really surprised how hot it was!

Kristen Callihan

I first read Evernight and then Firelight I was hooked! I actually looked up Kristen Callihan and discovered that she also wrote New Adult! Well, to my surprise, I enjoyed The Hook Up!

Sarina Bowen

I love Elle Kennedy and when I discovered that she wrote a series with Sarina Bowen, I was intrigued. I went ahead and borrowed Rookie Move and Hard Hitter and enjoyed both of them!

Elizabeth May

I have only read one book by Elizabeth May and boy was I AMAZED! The Falconer is one of my favorite reads this year?! I still need to read the next two books in the series, though!


Jay Crownover

Jay Crownover is another amazing find in 2017! I loved Welcome to the Point series and also found out that she has a new adult series! OMG!

Sophie Barnes

Sophie Barnes is another amazing find in the historical romance genre and I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series A Most Unlikely Duke. I need to read some of her backlist books, too!


Have you read any of these authors before?

Who are your new-to-me authors last year?

  1. You have so many GREAT authors you discovered last year. I loved so many of these too. I will admit that Beautiful Bastard wasn’t my favorite book but I did like it. I want to read more of the series. And yeah Jennifer Armentrout is fantastic when it comes to NA. You should try out Linda Kage. She does superb NA as well.

    I really did love Jay Crownover too, the writing so splendid and easy to read.

    Hope 2018 is a year of great discovery of new authors as well.

    • Thanks for the rec! I will check out Linda Cage! I read Beautiful Bastard after the whole Hollywood abuse blew up and the plot in Beautiful Bastard kind of is bordering on abuse of power… however, I did enjoy it since we got the heroine’s POV so it felt okay… And JLA OMG! I can’t get enough of her books! SERIOUSLY!

  2. I *think* I’ve read something by Sarina Bowen before. I’d have to look that up, though. I could have just seen her name enough with books I told myself to read. I love when authors pair up! Every year I love blowing the minds of my kids who love the Warrior Cats books. They don’t know it’s FIVE authors writing the different series. I bet I would love all of these authors, too!

    • Yes! I mean, I used to read Sweet Valley, Nancy Drew, and the Hardy Boys and there are multiple authors who write those series! ? I do love reading books where authors pair up!

    • I’m actually rereading The Hookup again because for the life of me, I can’t remember the plot of the book! LOL and I rated it 5 HEARTS! ? ?
