Top Ten Tuesday #4

Click to see Broke and Bookish's TTT list
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week you have to make your own Top Ten list. This week the "question" is: 
Top Ten New to Me Authors of 2013
Top Ten Seven New to Me Authors of 2013

I've only read 49 books so far this year (which is the lowest number of books I've read in a year, since I started reading for real), and not that many of the authors of those books were new. I bought a lot of the books I read this year in 2012 or the year before that, so I knew about the author, but I hadn't read anything by that author before this year, and I am going to include those books on this list, I don't know if this counts, but I'm going to do it anyway, because otherwise it would only be a list of two books or something. 

1. Kasie West (Pivot Point): Is that a surprise? Because it really shouldn't be. I LOVE her.
2. Gayle Forman (If I stay, Where She Went & Just One Day): I've read three of her books in the past four months, which is a lot considering the fact that I've only read nine books in the past four months. -  I had exams in May and June, and I haven't had much time to do anything (besides school and sports) since I came to the States, which makes it okay.
3. Julie Cross (Tempest, Vortex & Tomorrow is Today): Beautiful. Loved her characters! 
4. Veronica Rossi (Under the Never Sky): I really don't need to explain this one ...
5. Katie McGarry (Pushing the Limits, Dare You To, Crash Into You & Crossing the Line): Her first book was released in July 2012, and now she has three books and a short story released. She writes fast, which to me is always a good thing, especially if you write well at the same time.
6. Jandy Nelson (The Sky is Everywhere): She needs to just write more books. This one was incredible. 
7. Lauren DeStefano (Wither & Fever): I can't believe I still haven't read the last book in the trilogy. The two first books are almost always on my mind.

Ebook Deals

I prefer reading books rather than ebooks, but every month Amazon has a new monthly deal: $3.99 or less, and sometimes the books are really great too. This month two of my favorite books are part of this deal, and if you haven't already read them you should get them now that they are on sale. 

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Title: Just One Day (Just One Day #1)
Author: Gayle Forman

368 pages, January 8th 2013, Dutton Juvenile
Contemporary Romance
Goodreads' synopsis: "When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines."
