Top 7 New To Me Authors of 2014

Well considering I didn't read anything this year until November there aren't many to choose from. :) #triptoitaly problems. These were the ones who stood out. Mostly, I read authors I've already read before.


1. Sophie Jordan in Uninvited-such a great read. My review

2. Tessa Afshar in In the Field of Grace. My review


3. Huntley Fitzpatrick in What I Thought Was True. I love her writing style.
I even went on to read My Life Next Door.  What I thought was True review
My Life next Door review



4. Jody Hedlund in Out of the Storm.Oh how I adore her writing. So cute.
My review of Out of the Storm
My review of Love Unexpected


5. Lisa Harris in Dangerous Passage. I love romantic suspense. 

6. Robin LaFevers in Grave Mercy. It was beautifully written. 
My review is here
My review for Dark Triumph

7. Kim Culbertson in Catch a Falling Star. It was just such a cute read. 


And that's all for me. What was your top ten? Did you have as hard of a time picking as I did? Please feel free to leave your link in the comments. 
I love reading them. :)

Love,

~Teaser Tuesday~

This meme is hosted by Miz B of Should be Reading.

The rules are really simple. Just grab the book you're reading and turn to a random page. Pick two sentences and post them along with the page number, book, and author.

Without further ado here is my Teaser Tuesday for this week. 

This week my teaser comes from Finding Paris by Joy Preble. 

You can add it to your Goodreads shelf here. 


"Why are you helping me, anyway?"
Max looks startled, brows rising over those gray eyes. But his answer comes quickly."You're the first girl who's ever offered me coconut cream pie," he says."It's not the kind of thing a guy takes lightly." ~page 36



That's all for me. Which book did you pick this week. Please comment and leave your link. I check out every single link and respond" to every comment. :)

Love,
Danica Page

    1. Isn't that always the problem? I finished a lot of series this year that I started reading back in 2012 and 2013. It's hard to keep up.
