Top Ten Tuesday: 2018 Author Discoveries


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It's been months since my last TTT post, but this week's topic, New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018, caught my eye. Since half the books I read last year were by "new" authors, I though it would be fun to take a look at my favorites. Interestingly, they were all women.


2018 Author Discoveries: Fiction

Min Jin Lee - Pachinko  and  Free Food for Millionaires

Joan Silber - Improvement

Sarah Winman - Tin Man

Claire Fuller  - Swimming Lessons

Rebecca Kauffman - The Gunners



2018 Author Discoveries: Nonfiction


Nina Willner

  1. We have a couple in common on our lists for this year, Kelly Corrigan and Rebecca Kauffman. Two others I read for the first time last year, Claire Fuller and Nina Willner. It's always a plus adding new favorite authors to look forward to.

    1. Kathy - Hope you can work Free Food for Millionaires in this year. The audio was really good, too. It was a read/listen combo for me.

  4. All mine were women too! You've got some great selections on here and I'd say most of these are already on my wishlist. Now to make it happen!

  5. I really neglected nonfiction in 2018 and really find myself missing it. It's one of my favorite genres and I'm going to check out the authors you mention.

  7. Kelly Corrigan is an all-time favorite of mine. The rest on your list are on my recommendation list for my book club. If we don't choose all my recs, I still plan on reading them!

    1. Monika - I have Our Endless Numbered Days ready to go on my kindle... looking forward to it. It seems like Bitter Orange is getting mixed reviews, but I plan to read that one, too.

  9. I bought Panchinko for a bookish friend. I couldn't even come up with 10 I wanted to read again, so sad!

    1. Patty - Me, too! The only problem is that there's never enough time to read all of their previous books and keep up with their new one, too...

      Delete
  11. Wow love your list. All women too! I've only listened to Tin Man of these, but I hope to get to many more of them. Thanks!

    1. Susan - The audio version added to my enjoyment of Tin Man... the author's narration was absolutely perfect! It was a read/listen combo for me, but I almost hated to just read!

      Delete
  12. Thanks for the heads up about these books by female authors. I have some of them on my tbr list but not all. Will look them all up.

    1. Thanks, Paula. I can't believe I read nearly 80% female authors last year... many new to me and, I have a feeling, will become favorites.

      Delete
  13. Great list -- I have some of them on that ever-growing "I really want to read it" list.

    1. Beth F - Ever-growing is right. My list is out of control!

  14. I read Free Food for Millionaires and loved it. Pachinko is on my tbr list. I'm going to check out the rest of these writers. Thanks!

    1. Vasilly - Pachinko is very different from Free Food for Millionaires and, in many ways, even better!

      Delete
  15. I liked Tin Man, too! The author should have made my TTT list, but I had to limit myself to 10.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  16. Great to see you enjoyed Claire Fuller's writing last year - I too enjoy her books... I have yet to read her newest release though, despite having it on my Kindle!
