Top Ten Tuesday: Nice to Meet you in 2016!

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
The Broke and the Bookish that features a great bookish top ten every week.

These were my favorite new authors in 2016. I love discovering new authors and this was a good year for me.

1. Kerri Mannsicalo- Jack the Ripper was so awesome. I love historical fiction but I am picky over it and this book hit all the dos and missed all the donts. Can't wait for more!
Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1)

2. Eileen Cook- With Malice was one of my top reads of 2016. Loved it. I almost passed this book up until a blogger friend said it was awesome!

3. Lindsay Ribar- Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies was not even on my radar, didn't know about it until a blogger friend again mentioned books with great names. I picked it up and loved every moment of it.

4. Sarah Jude- May Queen Murders had me from hello I see you on Goodreads. I loved the sound of this read from the beginning. I read it I mean I devoured it and yup it was awesome.

5. Erin L. Schneider- I am not all about contemporary read but this cover and title stood out to me. I read Summer of Sloane and just loved every moment of the read.

6. April Genevieve Tucholke - loved Winky Poppy Midnight so so much. Its hard for me to find great magical realism and this one was a great one.

7. Goldy Moldavsky - Kill the Boy Band just wowed me. It was a very dark humor read but I just ate it up. It had me so into the read and I just didn't want it to end.

8. Eric Lindstrom- I really didn't know if I would enjoy Not if I See You First, but I did  I loved it and I recommend it to everyone for a great contemporary feel good read.

9. E.K. Johnston - Another book with a difficult subject but the subject and the story was well handled and well told. great book 

Exit, Pursued by a Bear

10. Kurt Dinan - I love a great funny laughing book with some depth. Don't get Caught was this book for me. It was so fun.

What about you? What were those great and new authors for you this year?



  1. I really want to read "Stalking Jack the Ripper" but otherwise your list was unfamiliar to me. Sadly I don't think I've discovered that many authors this year... Maybe a couple of debuts. But I'm terrible and tend to stick with my favourites. Going to make that one of my goals for next year, to branch out a bit more!

    1. I am the total opposite. I go for new authors and new books most of the time and tend to leave the already loved authors alone. I just forget to see what is out there by them.

  2. Ooh nice! April and Kerri were new to me ones too that I enjoyed! I still need to read Eileen and Sarah Jude! Great picks!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I think you would like the may queen flowers and with malice both really good reads.

  3. I definitely want to read Exit Pursued by a Bear and Kill the Boy Band. I'm SOOO happy you loved With Malice-- it was one of my faves of the year. I also really liked Stalking Jack the Ripper.

    1. I only read With Malice because you sang its praises. I am so glad I did. It was so wonderful. I need to find some more from this author and get read up on them.

  4. Two of my favorite authors are here (April T. and Lindsay Ribar), I'm glad to see you found them and loved them!! I've been wanting to dive into Stalking Jack the Ripper---agh, too many books, so little time!!
