Six For Sunday – Amazing Finds!

I loved looking back over the books I read last year for this topic, but keeping it to six was so difficult! I discovered a lot of new crime writers that I really enjoyed and thanks primarily to #SundayYA and the wonderful blogging community I rediscovered my love of YA fiction which I hadn’t really read since I was a teenager.

Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Steph at ALITTLEBUTALOT. You can find a list of the 2018 prompts here

New Authors I Discovered In 2017

Marissa Meyer – I discovered Heartless all the way back in February 2017 and after that I was determined to read the Lunar Chronicles – I’ve still not got around to it, but I am very excited to have the Renegades ARC on my iPad to read next month

Carol Wyer – Carol has been writing for a little while, she began with a blog and moved onto contemporary novels. Last year she published her debut crime novel which was when I discovered her, I’m certainly a fan of her lead character DI Robyn Carter!

Patricia Gibney – Patricia released her first crime novel with Bookouture in 2017, and there are now 3 in the DI Lottie Parker series. I’m looking forward to the fourth.

Maggie Harcourt – I read Unconventional as part of the SundayYAthon at Easter last year. I adored it and cannot wait for Theatrical!

Daniel Cole – Daniel released his debut novel Ragdoll last year. It was an incredible piece of crime fiction, the visuals are perhaps not for the faint-hearted! The follow up Hangman is out next month and the ARC is sitting on my iPad ready to read next week!

Vic James – Vic really needs no introduction from me. Despite Gilded Cage being released right at the beginning of the year I didn’t discover her until September. I flew through both Gilded Cage and Tarnished City, I cannot wait for Bright Ruin but I know I will be devastated to know that I’ve reached the trilogy, and having watched an interview with Vic I’m a little bit concerned about what she has planned!

These certainly aren’t the only authors I discovered last year, and there are a lot of amazing authors I’ve not listed above such as Brigid Kemmerer, Karen Gregory, Helen Phifer, Jeff Giles and J.D. Barker. Even that doesn’t exhaust my list!

      Oh you must! Tarnished City gets even better so I have high hopes for Bright Ruin although I’ll be devastated to reach the end of the trilogy!

      I have Renegades on my February TBR so after that I think I’ll try and pick up Cinder!
