Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish (click on the picture to visit their blog). A new Top Ten list is posted every week for fellow bloggers to participate in.
I was introduced to many new authors this year, but a few of my favourites below;
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – I bawled my eyes out. Thanks to my good friend ‘M’ for this recommendation
Sex and Violence by Carrie Mesrobian – Great male perspective, really enjoyed this book.
The First Third by Will Kostakis – So our male Aussie authors are just as good as our female ones…
Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers – I found this so disturbing that I had to put it down on several occasions. Brilliant piece of writing.
All I Ever Wanted and Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield – Can you say new favourite author?…(obviously behind MM because reasons)
What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton – My first read of the year, also her debut. Covers the aftermath of sexual assault. I really enjoyed it, am keeping an eye out to see what she comes up with next.
About A Boy by Nick Hornby – Listened to as an audio book. Made me laugh a lot. I liked it so much I bought a copy for myself.
The Sky So Heavy by Claire Zorn – Sorta reminded me of Tomorrow When The War Began. Very well written. I also own The Protected, want to get onto that soon.
The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey – Waaaaay different from anything I read these days. Very suspenseful, and kept me really interested all the way through.
In The Path Of Falling Objects by Andrew Smith – My first Andrew Smith book (I have about 4 others of his on my want-reads). Another one that was refreshingly different. A little disturbing too. But I get the Andrew Smith buzz.
Honourable mention: Freefall by Mindi Scott
