It is Tuesday once again, and this week, over at That Artsy Reader Girl, the ask is to share new authors we found in 2022. And while none of these are really new authors, they are certainly my top new to me authors.
Many of these books are on my list of favorite books of last year (save two of them – the WWII related ones; and looking back, they should have been there on that list as well but I already had 20 books on that rather than 10, just like I have 13 here rather than 10..). Well, my top ten Tuesday posts regularly have more than ten items anyways…

Top New to Me Authors in 2022
The author: Maggie Stiefvater
The book: Bravely (YA)
My Why: Well, why ever did I not read her books before? I am not sure, but I am glad I have started..
The author: Tara Lazar
The book: Absurd Words (Children’s Nonfiction)
My Why: I simply must. And if you need more, you can read my gushing review for this book here.
The author: Axie Oh
The book: The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea (Teen and YA/Fantasy, Multicultural Fiction)
My Why: Axie’s words conjure worlds effortlessly! And I need to read more now.
The author: Kristina McMorris
The book: The Ways We Hide (Historical Fiction)
My Why: While ‘Sold on a Monday’ has been a book I keep thinking I should read, but somehow keep pushing it to later, I am grateful to have started my McMorrs reading journey with this read. I am yet to review it, but it is definitely one of the most powerful reads of last year for me.
And Now, the End of This Post
Dear reader, which of these authors would make it on your list of favorite authors? And what about any of the books listed? Have you read them? Your thoughts?
