Top Seven New-To-Me Favourite Authors I Read For The First Time In 2015


Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme created by the girls of The Broke and the Bookish.
 
Alas, I could not come up with a list of ten new-to-me favourite authors. I didn't read that many books this year (only forty two). These seven authors have all written books that are either thought-provoking and deep, or very funny. Enjoy!

 
1. Svetlana Alexievich
 
This year's Nobel Prize Winner in literature, and a very brave woman who isn't afraid to write about the most painful chapters in the history of former Soviet Union. You can read my review of her book, Voices from Chernobyl right here.

2. Helen Brown
 
The author of Cleo, the book about a cat that helped Helen's family heal after the death of her son. I love her language and her honesty. She's a real inspiration.

3. Charlotte Bronte
 
Bronte must have been a genius, because Jane Eyre is a masterpiece. Find out why I love this book right here.

4. Andy Weir
 
The author of The Martian. Need I say more?

5. Michael Chabon
 
The Yiddish Policemen's Union is an exciting and thought-provoking crime story set in an alternate reality where Jewish WWII refugees found sanctuary in Alaska. It's a great book and Chabon is a great author.

6. Jo Walton
 
This woman made me care about dragons in her fantasy drama Tooth and Claw. She deserves to be on this list. Read my review for this page-turner here

7. David Duchovny
 
His debut novel, Holy Cow! is one of the funniest books I have read, and I can't wait to read his second novel,
Bucky F*cking Dent.
