Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back 2010 before moving to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It's born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week's theme is New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020, and the challenge for me wasn't to find 10, it was to narrow it down to a top 10, so I'm going to go with the 10 New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020 and hope to read again in 2021.

In alphabetical order...

  1. Alina Boyden - Stealing Thunder was one of my favorite books of the year (and Razia one of my all-time favorite heroines), and I have an ARC of Gifting Fire waiting for me
  2. Nicola DavidsonScandalous Passions was such a good book, a female-led polyamorous romance, and I have At His Lady's Command & The Devil's Submission cued up next
  3. Sara Gravatt-WimsattPrince(ss): A fair(l)y (odd) tale was another of my favorite reads of the year and I'll be all over whatever she publishes next
  4. Dan HanksCaptain Moxley and the Embers of the Empire was such a fun read, a sort of Stargate meets Indiana Jones mash-up, I'll be really angry if Angry Robot doesn't publish a sequel
  5. Dharma Kelleher - Chaser was my first adventure with her transgender bounty hunter heroine, and I've got Extreme Prejudice & A Broken Woman on the shelf waiting for their chance
  6. Sarah Kozloff - A Queen in Hiding was one of the best fantasy debuts of last year, and I recently picked up the whole series in paperback, so I'll be binging soon
  7. Brian Naslund - Blood of an Exile was a killer debut, and even if the sequel didn't match it for me, I still have my eyes on Fury of a Demon later this year
  8. Wen Spencer - A Brother's Price wasn't just my favorite read of the year, it's one of my favorite books ever. Tinker is up next for me
  9. Olivia WaiteThe Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics & The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows were absolutely wonderful romances, and I'm anxiously awaiting The Hellion's Waltz
  10. Regina Watts - Be My Bully and Dottie For You were my introduction to Regina, but it was with her Sabine stories that we really clicked. Familiarity is likely up next, but I also have my eyes on her massive Dottie For You Season 1 paperback

Who did you discover in 2020, and who are you looking forward to reading again?


  1. Wow, I haven't read any of these authors. I must correct that. Perhaps Captain Moxley..
    Lynn :D

  2. I'm sad I didn't get to Sarah Kozloff's series, but I guess there's always 2021 to check that box😁
