TTT # 75 – New to Me Authors I First Read in 2016

D34D2584-75D5-45F1-92E0-64852CEEF92C_zpssqbnidhkIn the last few years I’ve read a nice amount of books each year.And despite the amount of books, I still readΒ  a lot of authors each year that are new to me. Now new to me is of course a relative term. I might have read them for the first time during 2016 but that doesn’t mean I hadn’t heard of them before.

So for this week’s The Broke and the Bookish this list of authors I have read for the first time in 2016 (up to November 1st) are also authors I hadn’t heard of before 2016. In order of having read them.

I am also making a point of not linking them to goodreads or mentioning which books are by them just to see if you do all recognize them just from their name. Because I like to be mean like that.


  • Lisa Tuttle
  • Liz Kessler
  • Alwyn Hamilton
  • Maialen Alonso
  • Mark Gelinaeu and Joe King
  • L.S. Johnson
  • Simon de Waal
  • Danielle Ackley-McPhail
  • Steven Kelliher
  • Intisar Khanani
  • Laure Eve


Do you read a lot of by unknown authors? Have you heard of the authors from the above list?

  1. I read a short story by Lisa Tuttle once but don’t know any of the other authors. I love to go back to authors I already know and like – I am a very loyal reader xD But I like trying new authors as well. Even those I haven’t heard of before if the story sounds good. It’s a good mix every year πŸ˜‰

    1. I guess I’m not very loyal to authors. I just read whatever appeals to me regardless of who wrote it when I hear about it. I do have my favorites but I don’t think I always go back to the same ones.


  2. YES! To Mark Gelineau and Joe King! Which did you get to read? I love them all but the Rend the Dark series are my favourite.

    Happy Reading

  3. Ik herken enkel Laure Eve en Alwyn Hamilton al heb ik van hen nog geen boeken gelezen. Wel grappig om dit hier te lezen nadat ik zelf mijn terugblik-lijstjes voor januari aan het voorbereiden was. Zo staat Het Zwarte Hart van Gabrer mee op mijn ontdekkingslijstje.

    1. Toevallig. πŸ˜€ Ik heb op dit lijstje echt wat meer onbekendere namen gezet. Caraval is momenteel wel zo gehyped dat mensen haar naam wel zouden herkennen.
