Blog Hop Day!

This is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-For-Books.  Check out today's hop and find some new blogger friends!

Today's question from our host: Who is your favorite new to you author so far this year?
Obviously, after my last few days of reading I have to say Emma Donaghue, author of Room.   Some others that I've enjoyed reading for the first time this year are:
Tana French
Sarah Addison Allen
Maggie Stiefvater
Carrie Ryan


  1. Hi, I am new to your lovely blog via the Hop! I have a book by Tana French which I really should read sooner rather than later! Happy hopping!

  2. (P.S. I am already a follower--so I am not brand new to your blog!)

  3. I have heard of Carrie Ryan and Maggie Stiefvater, but not of the others. I'll look them up.

    Happy Book Blog Hop.


    PS. The Cat-Child is cute. I have a Dog-Brother, and I think my mom likes him better.

  4. Some great authors there! Thanks so much for the advice to read ROOM! I'm glad to hear how much you loved it. I haven't seen it mentioned around the blogs much.

  5. I haven't read any of those but have heard of them, I am considering trying Carrie Ryan.

    I'm a new follower.

    My post for the Hop here.

  6. Hi, hopping by to see what's new... I've read a couple of Tana French's books and reviewed them on my blog. I like her books, but they seem a bit long.

    My blog:
    Happy Friday!

  7. I am a regular here! Stopping by on the hop--I am enjoying hearing about everyone's new favorites. Have a great weekend!

  8. Hi Julie,

    I must be the only person who hasn't heard of any of these authors!

    Have a great weekend! I know I will cos we've got a long weekend here in Outback Australia.
