Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's topic:  Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2012
I don't have 10 authors that I fell in love with this year but I do have a couple.

1.) Kate Quinn-Mistress of Rome was an excellent read.  I haven't read any of her other books but I definitely plan to.
2.) Kate Morton-I read two of Kate Morton's books this year and I absolutely loved them.  I went out and bought her other two books though I haven't picked them up yet.
3.) George R.R. Martin-There really isn't an explanation needed here.  Martin is an amazing author.
4.) John Steinbeck-I was always intimidated by the idea of reading Steinbeck.  After reading East of Eden, I am just in awe of his writing.
5.) Elizabeth Loupas-Loupas is a writer of historical fiction.  I read two of her books this year and I definitely can't wait to read any new books she may write.

That's all I have.  I didn't read that many 'new-to-me' authors that really stood out this year.  What authors are on your list?


  1. GRRM and Steinbeck - yes! Great list!


  2. Steinbeck is amazing, no question. I'm glad that you read some of his work!

  3. Yayy Kate Morton! If you loved two of her books I'm sure you will like the other two - her books are fantastic(and I am fairly consistent with NOT liking historical fiction, lol)! Which two did you read?

    I haven't read any books by the others yet but I hope to read the "Game of Thrones" books soon! It's just such a large commitment!

    1. I have read "The Forgotten Garden" and "The Secret Keeper". They were both soooo good!
