This week's topic:
Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014
This week's topic was HARD! Here are ten authors I never read before 2014 (This doesn't mean they debuted this year, however. They're just new to me!)
Here they come...
My review: OPEN ROAD SUMMER
My interview with Emery Lord!
2) KIMBERLEY GRIFFITHS LITTLE
Stop back on Thursday for my blog tour stop!
3) KASIE WEST
So 2014 was the year I fell for this author...which is why I'm still counting it!
My Review: ON THE FENCE, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US
4) Mary E. Pearson
I never read Mary E. Pearson's Jenna Fox Chronicles, unlike many other people out there. I'd heard about them; the series was supposed to be fantastic. I never read it, though. My first brush with the author was this year when I read THE KISS OF DECEPTION. And let me tell you...IT IS AMAZING. I loved loved loved it. Definitely one of my top fantasy novels of 2014! This is another case where the sequel is sitting here calling my name and I can't pick it up before January... *sigh*

5) Rebecca Serle

6) Maria V. Snyder

7) Amy Finnegan
My review: NOT IN THE SCRIPT
My interview with Amy Finnegan!
8) JENNIFER ELLISION
The pretty cover hooked me. The elemental powers sealed the deal. I already wanted to read the book when I first heard about it, and even more so once I heard that Jennifer and I once ran in a similar fandom social circle back in the day. I wanted to read this even more after meeting her at BEA, and I'm so glad the book lived up to the hype! I can't wait to read more! This is great if you love elemental magic or series such as Avatar: The Last Airbender.
My review: THREATS OF SKY AND SEA

...I haven't reviewed this? Yet another grievance I must rectify soon!
10) STACEY O'NEALE
My review: THE SHADOW PRINCE, MORTAL ENCHANTMENT
