Top Ten New-To-Me Authors
I Read for the First Time in 2015
(Alphabetical order by Author)

Belle Aurora 
Willing Captive
Blooming romance, sweet friendships, and life-threatening suspense and danger that exceeded my expectations. Loved it!

Laura Kaye
Hard as It Gets (Hard Ink, #1) Hard as You Can (Hard Ink, #2) Hard to Hold on To (Hard Ink, #2.5) 
Hard to Come By (Hard Ink, #3) Hard to Let Go (Hard Ink, #4)
I got hooked on this series big time in 2015.

Jay Kristoff
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)
I'd read Amie Kaufman's work before and loved it. But this was my first Jay Kristoff book, and I absolutely loved their collaboration. One of my favorite reads this year.

Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus
I found 'The Night Circus' completely magical and enchanting.

Roxie Rivera
Ivan (Her Russian Protector, #1) Dimitri (Her Russian Protector, #2) 
Yuri (Her Russian Protector, #3) Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, #4)
I got really into the 'Her Russian Protector' series and look forward to reading the rest of these books, as well as the spin-off series.

Marcus Sakey
Brilliance (Brilliance Saga, #1) A Better World (Brilliance Saga, #2)
My husband and I loved the 'Brilliance Saga' on audiobook, and can't wait for the conclusion next year.

Lauren Smith 
The Gilded Cuff (Surrender, #1) The Gilded Cage (Surrender, #2)
The 'Surrender' series was a surprise find for me. I'm hoping to read book three soon, because the first two were fantastic.

K.A. Tucker
Burying Water (Burying Water, #1) Chasing River (Burying Water, #3)
The Burying Water series was my first experience with KA Tucker. I particularly loved 'Chasing River.'

Ryan Winfield
Falling for June
'Falling for June' was one of my absolute favorite reads this year. Blew me away.

Nicola Yoon
Everything, Everything
I fell in love with 'Everything, Everything' and look forward to more from this author.

  3. I really want to read The Night Circus - and I have a copy of it - now I just need to carve out some time :) My TTT

  4. I love Roxie Rivera's Her Russian Protector series!! I need to finish reading the rest of the books in the series. I can't say as I recall reading any of the other authors on your Top Ten Tuesday post this week, so I have some new to me authors to check out for sure.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-new-to-me.html
