TTT is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and every Tuesday there’s a new topic to list ten books. Today is all about new authors I discovered in 2020. Of the 39 books I read in 2020, 24 authors were new to me. So I’ll limit my today’s top ten to authors I want to read another book from.
- Caroline Lea
One of my favourite reads of 2020. I enjoyed Lea’s writing a lot! Her next book is called ‘the metal heart’ and has a totally different setting (WOII) so I’m really curious if I’ll like it as much as ‘the glass woman’.
2. Pat Barker
Pat Barker wasn’t the kind of author I was drawn to until she started writing Greek retellings. I love Greek retellings! The silence of the girls is a raw and feminist retelling of The Trojan War. And I’ll certainly read the sequel ‘The woman of a Troy’ which is to be released in 2021.
3. Patricia Bracewell
Another solid 5-star-read of 2020. This is only the first book in a trilogy about Emma Of Normandy. I hope to read the next book(s) in 2021.
4. Carol McGrath
Another first part in a trilogy. And next to this Rose trilogy, she has another one about woman that played a vital role during and after the battle of Hastings in 1066. So I’ll certainly look to McGrath for another excellent historical read.
5. Andrew Taylor
I’m always looking for a good historical mysterie and Taylor offers just that. I’m curious if I’ll like the second book in the Marwood and Lovett series even more than the first, which was a bit slow at times.
6. Gail Honeyman
I believe the whole book lovers community is waiting for her next novel, isn’t it?
7. Susan Vreeland
Authors who write about art and painters always tend to grab my attention. Her book about Vermeer is on my TBR.
8. Winston Graham
I have eleven more books to go in The Poldark saga. Luckily, I enjoyed Graham’s writing :).
9. Marcus Zusak
Yes, I know. It took me ages to read The book thief. And of course, I loved it. But I’ve heard his other books aren’t that great. So I’m not quite sure if I’ll read another one of him.
10. Matt Haig
Although ‘How to stop time’ didn’t make it to my top list of 2020, I still enjoyed his writing. And I know so many people who love all of his books. So I’ll definitely try another one.
What was your favorite new to you author from 2020? And have you read any of these?
