New to me authors! I love discovering (and rediscovering) new writers. I wish I could add more to the list, but I only got around to so many books on my TBR shelf. There’s just more to discover in 2016!
1.) Robert W. Chambers – I loved reading some of the stories that inspired writers I enjoy reading today, like Lovecraft and Stephen King.
2.) Madeleine L’Engle – A Wrinkle in Time was an adorable story that I can’t believe I hadn’t read when I was a child.
3.) Neil Gaiman – Not really new to me, but reevaluated and slid right into the favorite author space.
4.) A. J. Jacobs – Although I didn’t enjoy the content of the book of his I did read, I liked his writing style and wouldn’t mind reading his other books.
5.) Shawn Cowling – An independent writer I found right here on WordPress. I am anticipating reading more indie authors in 2016 since I didn’t get around to it in 2015. I have a lot of their books waiting for me on my Kindle.
6.) Philip K. Dick – Why haven’t I read his entire collection yet?
7.) Neil Shubin – I have read one of his two books. Can’t wait to read the other one, and see him speak in February!
8.) Luther Siler – another awesome independent author. Just started his book, Searching for Malumba.
9.) Lev Grossman – Like Harry Potter, but with cursing and gritty adult themes? I’m sure I’ll finish the trilogy before the end of this year!
10.) Carl Sagan – What can I say? I’m still too busy finishing up old series and reading networking textbooks to start something fresh.
