July 20th: What authors have you recently discovered and loved?
So far in 2021, I’ve read eleven new-to-me authors, a few of which are debut authors. Links lead to reviews.
Probably my favorite new-to-me author book I’ve read so far this year is Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron, whose debut title, The Chai Factor, released in 2020 (but I didn’t read it). In addition to these two Chai Factor romances, she’s releasing her first YA book, Tahira in Bloom, on November 1, 2021 by Skyscape Publishing.
I really enjoyed Blind Date with a Book Boyfriend by Lucy Eden. It is a meet-cute romance novella. I am certainly going to look for more the author in the future.
I read a handful of historical romances from new-to-me authors that I enjoyed: check out Heather McCollum, Samara Parish, India Holton, and Janna MacGregor for some solid historicals. India’s book, The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels, is lots of fun, with an alternate timeline/fantasy twist.
Finally, I really enjoyed these two fantasy audiobooks this year: Sorrowfish by Anne C. Miles and Subversive by Colleen Cowley, both new-to-me authors.
Other new-to-me authors I read this year include Barbara J. Hancock, Xio Axelrod, Jenny Hale, and Kate Moseman.
