message 1: by Tasha (last edited Feb 21, 2013 03:15PM) (new)

Tasha Turner Some of authors on the list don't make much sense as "new" J.R.R. Tolkien and J.K. Rowling and Dan Brown were the most obvious misfits.


message 2: by Elizabetta (new)

Elizabetta I'm confused, do we vote if we've read them or vote if we want to read them?


message 3: by Charlinda (new)

Charlinda Jenkins I chose authors I already read.


message 4: by Briana (new)

Briana Read Sarah Ann Walker's 'I am HER...' It's AMAZING!! (And new lol)

message 6: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Most of these authors are hardly new. Think before you add people.


message 7: by Elizabetta (new)

Elizabetta What is new? It's true that this list could outdate itself pretty quickly...


message 8: by Shirley (last edited Sep 10, 2013 11:53AM) (new)

Shirley First Night of Summer
Landon Parham
A gritty, fast-paced, must read psychological thriller/ mystery. Disturbing yet relevant---and full of emotion. Not for the faint of heart. I found it to be a touching story where good triumphs over evil. Great ending!

Aarohan Atwal

Zero Defect by Aarohan Atwal

Venkatasai Pachunoori nice


message 12: by Harry (new)

Harry Martin Escape World Peace

This is a new mystery/suspense Biblical Fiction book about the end of the world. It will keep you guessing.


message 13: by John (new)

John Alexander A recent new author with a strong voice is Rosemary A Johns writer of Blood Dragons and Blood Shackles Both books written strongly and unique, where most authors sound quite similar. Older example but not new would br Tolkien or Mikhail Bulgakov both very unique. Good voice has to challenge you and make you feel your really there experiencing it.


message 14: by Booklovinglady (last edited May 11, 2017 01:05AM) (new)

Booklovinglady It seems there is an English translation coming of Lize Spit's debut novel Het smelt, written in Dutch/Flemish, and as it is a truly marvellous first novel, I've added it.

message 16: by Agnieszka (last edited Mar 08, 2020 06:02AM) (new)

Agnieszka It's so frustrating there're so many really old books/classics. It's not a list you can depend on - even if you keep it mind it was created 10 years ago.
