This week, share with us authors you had the pleasure of reading for the first time this year (and all the books you read by them). It doesn't matter when the books were released or how long the authors have been around.

Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments 1) John Boyne - The Heart's Invisible Furies and A Ladder to the Sky, two of the best books that I have read this year.

2) Robert Jackson Bennett - Divine Cities trilogy was one of the best fantasy series that I read this year.

3) Robert Jordan - WoT is great even though I have my complaints but no doubt he has created a fascinating magical world and a huge cast to compliment it.

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1785 comments From all 47 new authors I read this year, all these authors have five star books.
John Crowley with Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruin of Ymr

Barry (boprawira) | 1182 comments 1. Steven Erikson
I randomly joined the Malazan BR on January, and it took me until probably MOI to fully appreciate the greatness that is Malazan.

2. Adrian Tchaikovsky
Children of Time was superb!

3. Ursula le Guin
I’d never read any of her works, but after reading the Dispossessed I can understand why she’s very highly thought of.


message 7: by Jenna, I'd be free if not for Temper & Edgewalker (new)

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4615 comments Mod
Nicholas Eames

message 8: by Virginie (last edited Dec 12, 2018 09:22AM) (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Mmmh, I have discovered quite a number a new (to me) interesting authors by reading lots of short stories but haven't found the time to get to their novels yet, apart from Rich Larson (Annex - not part of my top 3 but worth being mentioned if only for the very positive portrayal of a transgender girl).
In no particular order: (I'll include 4 'cause I can't choose)

- Pierce Brown
Red Rising (Red Rising, #1) by Pierce Brown Golden Son (Red Rising, #2) by Pierce Brown Morning Star (Red Rising, #3) by Pierce Brown

- Richelle Mead
Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, #1) by Richelle Mead Succubus on Top (Georgina Kincaid, #2) by Richelle Mead Succubus Dreams (Georgina Kincaid, #3) by Richelle Mead Succubus Heat (Georgina Kincaid, #4) by Richelle Mead Succubus Shadows (Georgina Kincaid, #5) by Richelle Mead Succubus Revealed (Georgina Kincaid, #6) by Richelle Mead
I read the entire Georgina Kincaid with Diana, and this series finally reconciled me with the UF (borderline PNR) genre.

- Rachel Aaron
Nice Dragons Finish Last (Heartstrikers, #1) by Rachel Aaron One Good Dragon Deserves Another (Heartstrikers, #2) by Rachel Aaron No Good Dragon Goes Unpunished (Heartstrikers, #3) by Rachel Aaron A Dragon of a Different Color (Heartstrikers, #4) by Rachel Aaron Last Dragon Standing (Heartstrikers, #5) by Rachel Aaron Minimum Wage Magic (DFZ #1) by Rachel Aaron
I've read the entire Heartstrickers series and the newly released first book of the DFZ series, and loved every second of it; all books I've read written by Rachel Aaron are TONS of fun, and I can't wait to start my binging of Eli Monpress in 2019

- Ilona Andrews
Yup. I didn't read any books by the super-writing-duo before 2018; Richelle Mead brought be back to reading UF, but Ilona Andrews cemented my love for the genre. I got fed up with UF degenerating into no-plot-only-orgies books (Anita Blake, I'm staring at you) but I'm really happy I let Diana & Iain drag me into binge-BR :D

Honorable mentions: Andrzej Sapkowski, R.F. Kuang, Nicholas Eames, Aliette de Bodart, Jo Walton and Ellen Kushner


message 9: by Timelord Iain (last edited Dec 12, 2018 09:28AM) (new)

Continuing Malazan in 2019...

2) Adrian Tchaikovsky: Children of Time (Children of Time #1) by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Such a great sci-fi / national geographic novel... trying Shadows of the Apt in 2019, and awaiting Children of Ruin

3) Michael J. Sullivan: Theft of Swords (The Riyria Revelations, #1-2) by Michael J. Sullivan Rise of Empire (The Riyria Revelations, #3-4) by Michael J.

Sullivan The Crown Tower (The Riyria Chronicles, #1) by Michael J. Sullivan The Rose and the Thorn (The Riyria Chronicles, #2) by Michael J. Sullivan The Death of Dulgath (The Riyria Chronicles, #3) by Michael J. Sullivan The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter (The Riyria Chronicles, #4) by Michael J. Sullivan

Let's just pretend Hollow World doesn't exist... I read that with CP in February, and it almost soured me to MJS, before I read all things Riyria from May to December...


message 10: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments @Iain: I think I was part of that Hollow World BR (although I didn't comment a lot - was really busy with work). I liked the concept, not so much the execution; the book still got me curious about Sullivan writing some SF. I know he's deep into his Riyria world (with the new series coming after Legends of the First Empire) but I hope he'll try again at some point.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments Michael Sullivan -

message 14: by Hailee (last edited Dec 12, 2018 10:15AM) (new)

Hailee | 2600 comments I've read a lot of new to me author's this year so it's hard to pick just three but I'll give it a go:

1. John Gwynne

Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen, #1) by John Gwynne Valour (The Faithful and the Fallen #2) by John Gwynne

Finishing this series is a top priority for 2019.


2. Mark Lawrence

Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire, #1) by Mark Lawrence King of Thorns (The Broken Empire, #2) by Mark Lawrence Emperor of Thorns (The Broken Empire, #3) by Mark Lawrence

Looking forward to moving onto the his other works at some point soon.


3. Sebastien de Castell

Traitor's Blade (Greatcoats, #1) by Sebastien de Castell Knight's Shadow (Greatcoats, #2) by Sebastien de Castell

This is the series that has made me really excited to read The Three Musketeers in 2019.


Honourable mention:

Steven Erikson

Gardens of the Moon (The Malazan Book of the Fallen, #1) by Steven Erikson

Not quite a favourite yet but I have a feeling that once I get further into the series he will be.

He's one of my new favorites. I love the way he writes. And the audiobook narrator, Tim Gerard Reynolds, is now my favorite narrator, too.


message 16: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments David Gemmell- I can still feel the adrenaline from that book in my veins

George Orwell- Ho boy I loved 1984 and Animal Farm

Jk Rowling - Loved the first 2 need to get back on track soon

Runner up

Brian Stavely- Fantastic but just missed out

He came very close to making my list as well. I'm definitely going to get to at least the last two books in The Riyria Revelations in 2019

I really liked the narrator too! I only used a bit of audio for the shorts though.

Tim Gerard Reynolds is definitely my favorite narrator! Beyond the Riyria books, I loved the way he narrated the Red Queen's War series (by Mark Lawrence).

He also narrated the Red Rising series and did a great job there as well.

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2) by Amie Kaufman Obsidio (The Illuminae Files, #3) by Amie Kaufman

Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1) by Jay Kristoff

message 24: by Kathrine (new)

Kathrine | 1246 comments Ohh, I'll have to think about this one... I think my top three new author discoveries this year have been (not in any particular order):


Becky Chambers

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1) by Becky Chambers A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers, #2) by Becky Chambers

I really loved this series, and the way it's written. Makes me feel all cozy and warm inside – it's like a hug in the form of a book.


Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse, #1) by Leigh Bardugo Siege and Storm (Grisha Verse, #2) by Leigh Bardugo Ruin and Rising (Grisha Verse, #3) by Leigh Bardugo

I read the Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom duology first and loved it. The original Grisha trilogy wasn't as good, but I loved the premise of the story and the world and its magic – can't wait for King of Scars next year!


Ursula K. Le Guin

A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #1) by Ursula K. Le Guin The Tombs of Atuan (Earthsea Cycle, #2) by Ursula K. Le Guin The Farthest Shore (Earthsea Cycle, #3) by Ursula K. Le Guin Tehanu (Earthsea Cycle, #4) by Ursula K. Le Guin

I'd heard a lot about her and am happy to say that I absolutely loved her fantasy classic, Earthsea. Le Guin is a fantastic writer, and I can't wait to explore more of her worlds.


message 25: by Tammie (new)

Tammie | 4107 comments The top three authors I discovered this year would be:

1. Stuart Turton The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton . I was very impressed with this book. I liked the combination of the time loop and the mystery.

2. Carol Berg Song of the Beast by Carol Berg . I really enjoyed this book and it made me want to read more of Berg's works in the future.

3. Rebecca Muddiman No Place Like Home by Rebecca Muddiman . Even though I wasn't surprised by everything in this book, this mystery really threw me. All I can say is wow.

Main reason I didn't include Becky Chambers was because of the disappointing 3rd book in the series... me and Niki read it in October/November... Niki may still be reading it, to this day ;)

Oh no, I haven't read it yet D: I'll be so sad if it's disappointing but then again, I didn't enjoy the second as much as the first...

I just finished this last week and really liked it as well. Murder mustrry thrillers aren't normally my thing but I loved the sound of this one and I wasn't disappointed.


message 29: by Bill (last edited Dec 12, 2018 04:16PM) (new)

Bill | 2150 comments I just counted it up the other day and read 41 new to me authors this year.

1. Jacqueline Carey - I'm out and haven't looked through my list yet but know she is number 1. I read her entire Kushiel series this year and her standalone starless. Her Phedre and Imriel trilogies were definitely the highlights but all her books were good at the very worst.

2. Nalo Hopkinson - her Caribbean influence woven throughout her stories are unlike anything else I’ve read.

3. Patricia A. McKillip - her books always feel hopeful to me even when bad things happen.


message 30: by Shae (new)

Shae | 372 comments Top 3, new to me:

1. Josiah Bancroft (Senlin Ascends) - really beautiful writing :-)

2. R. F. Kuang (The Poppy War) - completely absorbing!

3. Jonathan French (The Grey Bastards) - unapologetically crude and hilarious!

Yay! I'm so happy you liked Jacqueline Carey. She's one of my favorite authors, even though I couldn't get through her Moira trilogy.


message 32: by Bea (new)

Bea | 2052 comments In terms of how many books by new-to-me authors I read there are two clear winners (and yes, I'm to lazy to type in all the book titles):

- Lynn Flewelling: The Nightrunner series (7 books) and the Tamir Triad

-Agatha Christie: 8 books

Additionally: I can't decide between Michael R. Fletcher (Manifest Delusions), Joe Abercrombie (First Law Trilogy) and David Hair (Moontide Quartett), so I name them all :)


Saul the Heir of Isauldur (krinnok) | 209 comments Helene Wecker: I found The Golem and the Jinni recently and I've been wanting to get to it. It sounds like a good concept.

Brian K. Vaughan: The writer of the graphic novel series Saga. I started reading said series and I love it, it lives up to the hype.

Philip K. Dick: I don't know if he counts, because I've known about him for a long time but never really read any of his work. This year, I read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and loved it.


message 34: by Bill (new)

Bill | 2150 comments Diana - I’m pretty sure I started it because I saw how many points you got for it in the team competition.

Saul - Vaughan’s Paper Girls and Y: The Last Man series are fantastic too.


message 35: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 2875 comments New to me this year:

1. Peter Clines
14 by Peter Clines The Fold by Peter Clines

He's my new scifi thriller go to! Hope he keeps writing in this world.

2. Angus Watson
You Die When You Die (West of West #1) by Angus Watson The Land You Never Leave (West of West) by Angus Watson

Quite enjoyed the first one and absolutely loved the second one. Such a bonkers, over the top story that just worked for me. This series is not for everyone!

3. Leigh Bardugo
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo

I also read the Grisha trilogy but she hooked me with Six of Crows back in March.


message 36: by Soo (new)

Soo (silverlyn) | 5346 comments 14 was my intro to Clines. I loved that book!


message 37: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 2875 comments Soo, any suggestions for other books similar to those? I can always use a good scifi thriller fix now and then.


message 38: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7417 comments Mod
Since most of this year was dedicated towards zeroing out series I'd already started, I didn't read a lot of new authors. But I still managed to find 3 standouts:

Brian Staveley - The Emperor's Blades
Brian McClellan - Promise of Blood
Michael Mammay - Planetside

Hm. That's a toughie if you want a story that's similar to 14 & the Fold.

Recs:
Dark Matter
The World Walker
Virtual Mode
Where the Hell is Tesla?
Daemon
Rosewater
The Three-Body Problem


Other
Paradox Bound - Great but not like 14 & Fold.
Patient Zero
The Silent Corner
The Lives of Tao
The Last Days of Jack Sparks

That was what I did this year too. I hardly started any new series. That's why my 3 were all authors that wrote stand-alones.

Jeffrey (jwhitsitt) | 35 comments E. William Brown
Fimbulwinter (Daniel Black, #1) by E. William Brown Black Coven (Daniel Black, #2) by E. William Brown Extermination (Daniel Black, #3) by E. William Brown Thrall (Daniel Black, #4) by E. William Brown Perilous Waif (Alice Long #1) by E. William Brown

I found these perusing the "rationalist fiction" list here on Goodreads. The first four are fantasy/mythology. The last is more SF.

Martha Wells
All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries, #1) by Martha Wells Artificial Condition (The Murderbot Diaries, #2) by Martha Wells Rogue Protocol (The Murderbot Diaries, #3) by Martha Wells Exit Strategy (The Murderbot Diaries, #4) by Martha Wells
The Murderbot Diaries

Eliezer Yudkowsky
A Girl Corrupted by the Internet is the Summoned Hero?! by Eliezer Yudkowsky

Hilarious spoof of common fantasy trope.

Love Murderbot. Definitely a highlight of my year. I’d already read cloud roads though so I couldn’t count it lol.


message 45: by Kathrine (new)

Kathrine | 1246 comments I read and loved all the books of the Raksura by Martha Wells. How are the Murderbot books?


message 46: by Jeffrey (new)

Jeffrey (jwhitsitt) | 35 comments Without spoiling anything, I enjoyed most the bot's dry, self-reflecting humor. The plot is good, but the character is the best part. In this case the character being a bot.

Quick, entertaining reads. Highly recommended!

DJay (djdjay) | 1 comments If you liked Eliezer Yudkowsky A Girl Corrupted by the Internet is the Summoned Hero?! by Eliezer Yudkowsky then you should give J.J. Pavlov Demon Princess Magical Chaos The Tentacle Awakens by J.J. Pavlov a try.

My 3 are...

M. H. Ryan
Bowsette And Her Super Harem Bros by M. H. Ryan

Elliott Kay
Run Like Hell (Wandering Monsters Book 1) by Elliott Kay

Virlyce
The Blue Mage Raised by Dragons (The Blue Mage Raised by Dragons, #1) by Virlyce
