Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature run by The Broke and Bookish, combining books and lists. This week’s topic is our favourite new authors from 2017. My best books of 2017 post is coming later this week.
I read My Name is Lucy Barton in one evening, and was so intrigued by the characters and relationships. I have since read more of Strout’s work, and attended an event in Dublin in which she was interviewed by Sinead Gleeson.
Rooney’s debut Conversations With Friends is as brilliant as all the reviews and buzz would indicate. One of my favourite reads of the year, I’m very excited to read her future work.
Meg Grehan’s debut The Space Between is a tender and beautiful love story, told in verse. She is definitely one to watch you!
This year I finally read Where’d You Go, Bernadette and it lived up to my expectations. I loved the memorable characters and sharp wit. Today Will Be Different is on my TBR list.
The Other Mrs Walker was one of my co-worker’s staff picks, and I am delighted she introduced me to it. This was such an intriguing and gripping read, I was enthralled by it.
The Red Ribbon was a very moving historical read that gave me a different perspective on WW2. Addington is a fashion historian, and I am looking forward to checking out her book Stitches in Time.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of the Ink trilogy. This was a book I judged by his cover, and I’m glad I picked it up!
My friend lent me Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy and I flew through it. I loved reading about Lara Jean and her sisters, and look forward to the movie coming out.
Karen M McManus
McManus’ One Of Us is Lying was a real page turner, I couldn’t put it down!
I loved the voice in Sofia Khan is Not Obliged, it was so strong and it was a really enjoyable read.
