TTT: Authors I Discovered in 2020

Hey guys! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic: new-to-me authors I read in 2020

What I’m going to do: list all of the new authors I read in 2020, which book(s) I read by them, and how I discovered them. Click on the book titles to see my review!


  1. Richard FalkenThe Flaming Wrath of Árelor; several short stories
    • Review request
  2. Gloria ChaoAmerican Panda; Rent a Boyfriend (review coming soon)
    • Both were free reads on Riveted Lit
  3. Alwyn HamiltonRebel of the Sands
    • Random library pick up
  4. Liz BraswellOnce Upon A Dream; As Old As Time
    • Ordered both online because they were retellings
  5. Leigh BardugoSix of Crows; Crooked Kingdom
    • Random library pick up…I actually was unaware of the hype surrounding these books until after I read them. While I knew the Shadow and Bone series was popular, I didn’t know this one.
  6. Margaret OwensThe Merciful Crow
    • Random library pick up. Though to be fair, I followed her on Twitter way before I read this…
  7. Jenna Evans WelchLove & Luck
    • Free read on Riveted Lit. Yes, I started in the middle of the series. No, that did not change what I thought of this book. I really hope to pick up the first and third one eventually!

    • Thrift store purchase because it sounded interesting.

  10. Lexa HillyerSpindle Fire

  11. Lily Webb – First three Magic & Mystery cozy mystery series (not reviewed)
    • I needed a book for a readathon that featured an occult… This book was free on Kindle, and the cover was pretty… then I ended up finding the audiobook for the first three.
  12. Indrajit GaraiThe Bridge of Little Jeremy
    • Review request by a friend of the author
  13. Matsuri Hino MeruPuri Vol. 1 (manga, not reviewed)
    • Sister gave this to me

So I discovered 13 new authors in 2020! For having only read 38 book, that’s pretty good!

    1. I honestly had no idea I found this many until I looked at my reading list. I was very surprised, since I thought I had been reading a lot of rereads, but apparently not as many a I thought. And yeah, it’s an interesting title! Apparently the book is inspired by a real life practice where Asian women hire dates for the holidays to avoid questions and such, and it was really neat!

    1. I know! I can’t believe so many people discovered Leigh Bardugo this year and are hyping up her books, and here I was thinking I was just so behind when I found the SoC duology! I can’t wait to look at your post!
