Top authors you discovered this year

Per this week’s topic, the following are authors who I discovered this year whose stories I enjoyed reading so much that I still think of them.

Caroline Kepnes


You is a thriller about a guy stalking a girl. The story is told from the stalker’s perspective and though it’s creepy, it’s hard to break from the story for long. You will get hooked to the voice and your curiosity will overcome you as you wonder how it will all end.

I highly recommend this story and I look forward to the next book in the series — Hidden Bodies.

Billy Coffey

The Curse of Crow Hollow

Here’s another creepy one that’s perfect for this time of year. Weird things are occurring in the small town of Crow Hollow. Is it supernatural or is it psychological? Read to find out.

The story is gripping and I love the way Coffey writes, which is why I had to purchase another of his novels.

Leah Raeder


Unteachable is a new-adult book about a high-school girl who falls in love with her teacher and the relationship that develops between them. The basis of the story is a taboo. It’s very descriptive and can get a touch sexually graphic at times.

It’s written well and is very descriptive, which is why I like and recommend it.

Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys

I read this as part of the Random Readalongs September event and I’m glad I did. It’s a young-adult novel about a group of teenagers interested in the supernatural…and that’s all I’ll say because I don’t know how to summarize the story without giving away too much. Also perfect reading for October.

The story starts out slow but once it gets going, you will be hooked. This and The Curse of Crow Hollow are both set in Virginia, which makes me wonder if Virginia has a lot of spooky towns.

M.P. Kozlowsky

Juniper Berry

Juniper Berry is a middle-grade novel about a girl who’s worried about her parents’ weird behavior so she follows them into the woods behind her house to find out what they’re up to.

I enjoyed this story. It’s a little creepy so it’s perfect for October as well. And it has illustrations. I recommend it to both kids and adults.

Honorable mentions

I discovered graphic novels this year. I’ve never read so many in my life but I’m glad I did. I love them! Of the graphic novels I read, I love the stories in these two the most. Both of these comics contain graphic content.

Saga is written by Brian K. Vaughan and is about a couple who’s on the run. Their planets are rivals at war and they are wanted because they bonded and had a baby.

Rat Queens is written by Kurtis J. Wiebe and is about a group of kick-ass female mercenaries.

Check them both out.

Let me know who are your top authors for the year below.

    1. The Scorpio Races is on my TBR as well. It seems like a hit or miss read though since reviews are varied. The Raven Boys takes patience though because it takes a while to build up. I just like the whole psychic thing about it.
