Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl
New authors I read
She is my #1 because I read 3 of her books in 2022! The Hollow Places was one of my fave books of the year and is now in my top 5 standalones. She has a very distinct writing style with extremely unique worlds!
Xiran Jay Zhao
Iron Widow was my favorite book of the whole year! Awesome writing, awesome world building, awesome characters. EPIC twist!
Beautiful, whimsical writing, paired with beautiful world building!
Amélie Wen Zhao
Song of Silver, Flame Like Night was in my top 10. Cinematic world building and bomb magic system!
Superb humor and engaging prose. Crownchasers was the funniest book I’ve read in a while!
The Ninth Rain was one of the most unique books I’ve read in a very long time. Outstanding world building!
