Top Ten Tuesday:  New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2022

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2022 (If you didn’t read books by 10 new authors, share new-to-you authors whose books you added to your TBR in 2022. Get creative, if needed!)

1.) T.J Klune

58506799    58562619. sy475     61427937. sy475

I’ve read my first TJ Klune book in July and hosted a Readalong named #Klunealong to finally dig my claws into one of his books. Well, in the end I read 2 more books from him and there is no end in sight! I just love his books so much and they are funny, heart-breaking, amazing, suspenseful, wholesome, sad, bitter-sweet, and all the other adjectives you can think of. Just amazing! And thankfully he wrote a ton of books so it will take me a long time to catch up to all of them. YAY! *lol*

2.) Margaret Rogerson

„Sorcery of Thorns“ was my first Margaret Rogerson book but I really like her writing style and I absolutely adored the characters in this book. So I’m looking forward to read her other works and to find out if she might even have a series I can get lost in. This was a standalone and recently she released a sequel novella which I’m definitely going to read too.

3.) L. Philips

32855079. sy475

I’ve never heard of this author but one day „Sometime After Midnight“ ended up on my goodreads feed and I got curious about the book. Honestly for such an unknown book this story was amazing and I was a sucker for the music element in here. I’m convinced L. Philips is making music herself because the way she described the two MCs making music together?! It was perfect! Such a surprising and awesome book! I loved every second of it! ❤

4.) Victoria Lee


And here comes another author that totally surprised me! „The Fever King“ and Victoria Lee as an author have been on my radar for ages and I wanted to read this book for a very long time. Well, and then one day in spring I found it at one of my libraries and finally picked it up. And wow!! This story, the world and the two MCs got me good! I really can’t wait to read book two because I need to know what’s going to happen to Dara and Noam!!!!

5.) Naomi Novik

42941939. sy475

Naomi Novik is one of those authors that was always recommended to me but I never read a single one of her books before last year. In 2022 I decided I’d finally try out one of her books and chose „Spinning Silver“, which apparently was a good choice because I enjoyed it a lot. Not gonna lie I loved the fairy-tale aspect of this and the strong female MCs but I was kinda thrown off by the ending. It felt like the book was over but then it wasn’t so I’m kinda careful with the next Novik book I’m going to pick up. *lol*

6.) Tracy Deonn

55507414. sy475

This book was amazing!!! I never tought I’d enjoy „Legendborn“ as much as I did but wow!! I was such a sucker for this arthurian retelling you have no idea! The entire world, all the diverse characters, the strong female lead character, the grief rep and especially SELWYN KANE!!!! soo persuaded me to pick up the second book. I need more of Sel. Really! And I can’t wait to dig my fingers into „Bloodmarked“!

7.) Karla Nikole

55232639. sy475

This book was exactly what I needed! An m/m vampire romance with a slow-burn and with one of my new favourite tropes „consent“ on both sides! *lol* I still dunno if you can call „consent“ a trope but for me it is because I love this in my books and I’ll never get enough of it. XD So Karla Nikole totally hit that spot for me and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series. Haru and Nino are two really awesome MCs and they fit together perfectly. I definitely want to see more of them and their world soon!

8.) Mira Grant

34913896. sy475

Deadly mermaids that will rip your throat out as soon as they see you?! YES! I gobbled this book up like nobody’s business and had a lot of fun while paging through it! *lol* Mira Grant is a master at creating a creepy atmosphere and even though this was also gory af all the science we got in here definitely made up for it. It was just the right mixture of gore, horror, suspense and science and I loved it! ❤ Can’t wait to dive (pun totally intended) into the next of Mira Grant’s books. 😉

9.) Brandon Sanderson


I finally read my first Brandon Sanderson book and I really enjoyed it. Admittedly it took me ages to get into the right mood to read „The Final Empire“ but that’s mostly a „it’s not the book, but me thing“ because I’m such a mood reader and I wasn’t in the right for epic fantasy for a while. *lol* But hey, once I got into the right mood I really loved this. It left me with so many questions though and I really hope that some of them will be answered in „The Well of Ascension“. *fingers crossed*

10.) Libba Bray

16050751. sy475

I heard a lot about Libba Bray and her Diviners series but I never picked it up until one of my fellow BookTubers asked if someone wanted to read it with her. Well, of course I said yes and I had one of the best buddy reads ever! This was creepy, eerie and gruesome to read but also very entertaining and atmospheric?! I really enjoyed that it played in the 20ies and the characters were super interesting. Very curious where this series is going and I already agreed on a buddy read of book two with Victoria! (who is the aforementioned BookTuber that read the first book with me.)


So what about you? Which authors were new to you in 2022 and which books of them did you read? Do we have any books in common or did you actually read some of them already? And if yes, did you enjoy them?Did you discover different authors than me? And can you recommend books by them?? =)

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

  1. Hello! I didn’t have any books in common with you on my post, but I have read SORCERY OF THORNS (Loved! Just got the sequel novella, which I can’t wait to read.) and THE FEVER KING, which I also really enjoyed and can’t wait to read the sequel of. I’ve heard great things about The Diviners series, too. I will have to check it out for real. 🙂 Here’s my TTT post.

    1. I’m glad to hear you loved „Sorcery of Thorns“ and „The Fever King“ too! I don’t know many people that read „The Fever King“ so that makes me really happy! XD It’s definitely underrated. „The Diviners“ was definitely something different and had me very entertained. I hope you’ll love it too when you get to it. 😀


    1. Ohh! I’m so curious what you’ll say about „The Fever King“! It was such a surprising read for me and I hope you’ll enjoy it too. XD „Spinning Silver“ was great, I just was so confused by the almost-ending-that-was-no-ending-until-it-was. *lol* If you know what I mean. Haha!

  2. I definitely need to read some of Margaret Rogerson’s books. That one by Naomi Novik sounds like it might be good too. I am also very excited for Bloodmarked! Sel was a favorite of mine, but I haven’t gotten my hands on the sequel yet.

    Gefällt 1 Person

    1. I only heard great things about „Bloodmarked“ yet so I’m sure we’ll both enjoy it! More of Sel is exactly what I want. *lol* Margaret Rogerson and Naomi Novik are both great authors so I hope you’ll enjoy them once you get to them. =)

  3. I read The Diviners series a few years back and absolutely loved it, so I’m glad you enjoyed the first book and hope you continue to enjoy the series. I picked up Sorcery of Thorns a couple of years ago and made it a far way through but I was in a bit of a reading slump at the time and ended up putting it aside and haven’t come back to it-I need to actually finish it at some point. I’m not a big fan of Naomi Novik, I didn’t much love the first book I read of hers, Uprooted and I tried but ended up DNF’ing Spinning Silver so I don’t think she’s one for me. Glad you enjoyed it though!

    1. Thank you! =) I’m already very curious of the second book and where Libba Bray will go with this series. Aww I feel you on being in a reading slump. When I picked up „Sorcery of Thorns“ I was in one too but thankfully the book got me out of it. I hope you’ll enjoy it more when you decide to pick it up again. I think Naomi Novik is one of those authors you either like or don’t. Lots of my friends said they didn’t like „Uprooted“ but enjoyed „Spinning Silver“ so that was the one I went for. *lol*


      1. The annoying thing was, is that I was actually enjoying it, I was just in a place where I really wasn’t finishing anything I picked up. I think I’m out of that now, so hopefully this year I will be able to finish more of my physical books. I think I just don’t particularly vibe with Naomi Novik’s writing style, which happens, sometimes authors write in a way that you don’t particularly like. I’m glad you enjoyed one of her books though!

      2. On the positive side: You can read both „Sorcery of Thorns“ and „Mysteries of Thorn Manor“ now. 😉 Fingers crossed you’ll be able to read all the books you want to and that your reading slump is over. I get what you mean. I’d never recommend Schwab’s books or Stiefvater’s books to everyone for that very same reason. Not everyone vibes with their writing style.


      3. Ha ha this is true! I’ve been listening to audiobooks a lot more in recent years which means a lot of my physical books have been slightly neglected but I do want to try and get back to them a bit this year (whilst still reading a lot of audiobooks because I just love them). Yeah exactly! I mean I also love both of them, but other people might not. To be fair, that’s probably true of all authors, different people like different things!

    1. I haven’t heard of „Going Bovine“ yet but I’ll take a closer look at it now. =) „The Diviners“ was a really interesting read and if you’re into creepy and mysterious things I can totally recommend it. Fingers crossed you’ll enjoy your next Libba Bray book.
