Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's prompt is "New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020."
For many of us, 2020 was not a typical reading year. My goals, challenges, and projects were upended as I turned to books for comfort. That meant more rereads, backlists titles from favorite authors, memoirs, and quite a few lighter books. Here are my favorite author discoveries, listed in the order that I read them.
Kevin Wilson, Nothing To See Here
Rachel Lyon, Self-Portrait with Boy
Claire Lombardo, The Most Fun We Ever Had
T Kira Madden, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls: A Memoir
Nella Larsen, Passing
Connie Schultz, The Daughters of Erietown
Lucy Foley, The Guest List
Bess Kalb, Nobody Will Tell You This But Me: A True (as Told to Me) Story
Austin Channing Brown, I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness
Fredrik Backman, Anxious People
Have you read any of these authors? Who was your favorite author discovery last year?
