This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is New Authors of 2022. I’m usually quite terrible at keeping up with new releases and debut authors, so this week I’m talking about authors that I read for the first time in 2022 that I definitely want to read more of.
Ali Hazelwood – The Love Hypothesis was my first romance of 2022 and I really enjoyed it. It was a fun book and I liked the characters and the tropes. I also read Love on the Brain this year which officially made Ali Hazelwood an autobuy author for me. Even though Love on the Brain felt similar to The Love Hypothesis, I enjoyed it and I like that her characters are involved in STEM. If you’re interested, here’s my review of The Love Hypothesis and here’s my review of Love on the Brain.
Connie Glynn – Earlier this year I read Undercover Princess for a blog tour hosted by The Write Reads and I fell in love with it. The book reminded me of The Princess Diaries and it brought me a lot of joy. I picked up the rest of the books in the series and I’m hoping to read them in 2023. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Undercover Princess.
Elena Armas – This year I read The Spanish Love Deception and The American Roommate Experiment and I loved both of them. I adored Lina and Aaron in The Spanish Love Deception and seeing them in The American Roommate Experiment made that book even better. I also loved the romance between Rosie and Lucas in The American Roommate Experiment. I cannot wait to hear more about Elena Armas’ next book and to get my hands on it when it comes out.
Jamie Littler – This year, I read Frostheart and I fell in love with the world building and a grumpy yeti. Frostheart was such a fun book and it was full of adventure and amazing characters. I picked up the other books in this trilogy and I’m hoping to read them in 2023. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Frostheart.
Richard Osman – The Thursday Murder Club was a book club pick for me this year. I’m a fan of cozy mysteries and I thought The Thursday Murder Club was excellent. I loved the characters and all of the shenanigans they got up to while trying to solve the case. I’m looking forward to reading more about their adventures and crazy antics.
