New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016
I have been very lucky to have enjoyed a great mixture of well-loved authors and some great new authors too. Here are my top ten new-to-me authors I have read so far this year (listed in the order I read them):

Laurie R King
In February, I finally got round to reading The Beekeeper’s Apprentice the first in King’s Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes mysteries. I am looking forward to reading more.

Also in February, I read Cowles’ The Romanovs a fascinating history of the ups, downs, dreams, disasters and extreme personalities of the Romanov dynasty in Russia.
~ 3 ~
In March, I finally got round to reading Edmondson’s sweeping, romantic mystery The Villa in Italy and I was very pleasantly surprised!

Joanne M Harris
In June, I read Harris’ first adult fantasy novel The Gospel of Loki, an interesting and refreshing twist on Norse mythology.
~ 8 ~
In August, I read Faye’s Jane Steele; a cool and refreshing twist on Jane Eyre which fortunately didn’t disappoint my high expectations and excitement about it.
~ 9 ~
Also in August, I read Batterson’s inspiring Christian non-fiction The Circle Maker for my church’s book club, which made for a great discussion piece too.
~ 10 ~
D. J. Donaldson
Then finally at the end of October, I read Donaldson’s gripping mystery Blood on the Bayou. I would like to read more of Donaldson’s mysteries starring the detective duo of Andy Broussard and Kit Franklyn
