Top Ten Tuesday: New to Me Authors in 2018

So, if you’re new to my blog,  welcome to Top Ten Tuesday. It’s held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week the topic is about those fabulous authors you’ve read for the first time in 2018. It’s a short list this week, and one that hopefully doesn’t contain too many familiar names to readers.

Here are my picks:

The Good Son by You-jeong Jeong

Months later, I still count this as one of the most uncomfortable books I’ve ever read. Excellent read. But yes, uncomfortable.

Murder in the Marais by Cara Black

Murder and mystery in Paris, with a female detective? Yes please! Already a long-running series in 2018, this first one was published in 1999, and it is a bit dated, but still also relevant for what it explores in this first book.

Trace by Rachael Brown

Trace is a story that came out of a podcast Brown, a journalist, did. The book drew me in, right into the re-investigation of Maria James’ death. And recently, her case was re-opened thanks to the podcast.

Killing it By Asia Mckay

This is just FUNNY. And action-packed and thoughtful and did I mention laugh-out-loud funny? Mackay is an author to follow for me.

Perfect 10 by Jacqueline Ward 

Revenge baby. Dark and delicious, this read was all about a woman getting her revenge — quite methodically — on an asshole ex.

Widows by Lynda La Plante

This book couldn’t be further from the movie in terms of setting and time period, but the essence of these women remains the same. Badass.

That’s it for me this week I think.
