I'm so excited to participate in Kimberly Faye Reads' Top 16 of 2016 event! Today's topic is new to me authors, and since I did a decent job on my TBR pile this year (of course, for every one I knocked off the TBR a good 10 more went on ;)), this was a fun one! Some are from the last week of December 2015, but I put them in here anyway.
Once again, no order except for 5 to 1!
16. Patricia Briggs
Technically I read her for the first time in 2015, but it was the very end of December. Basically 2016. ;)
15. Lauren Blakely
Hot, sexy, and a bangin' male POV!
14. Chloe Neill
I've been very impressed with both her series! They're quite addictive, especially in audio form.
13. J.M. Darhower
Dark, sexy, and wild.
12. S.E. Reign
*fans self* This is some good smut right here, and it actually has plot.
11. Megan Tayte
It takes a lot for me to read YA, but this series was really good!
10. Molly O'Keefe
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, and the way the author handled the difficult and controversial topic!
9. Robin LaFevers
Another pleasant surprised, especially considering I usually don't like fantasy.
8. M.E. Carter
I found this author and story through Colleen Hoover's Facebook group, and devoured it in one night.
7. Sydney Logan
Almost nauseatingly adorable.
6. Katja Millay
Such a powerful novel, and I can't believe I put off reading it for so long!
5. Helena Hunting
My guilty pleasure auto-buy author. She cracks me up so hard!
4. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward
I've really enjoyed this duo this year!
3. Kristin Callihan
I've loved both her rockstar and historical/semi fantasy romance!
2. Jay Crownover
Each book I read from her I enjoy more than the last! Honor made my best of 2016 list, and I can't recommend it enough!
1. Emma Chase
She's now one of my favorite authors!
