Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works: Each Tuesday will be assigned a topic and then you post your top ten list that fits it. Feel free to add your own spin on the topic to make it work for you! For me, I’m not sure the type of spin I want to put on it, so for now I’ll post fairly straight-forward responses.
I put next month’s topics at the bottom of the post, but you can find the whole list on the host blog. If you don’t have a blog, you’re welcome to participate using other social media or even by putting your list in the comments.
This Week’s Topic: New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020 (If you didn’t read 10 new authors, that’s fine! Just do what you can.)
**You can select the cover of each novel to access their entry on Goodreads. Also, the links to my review for each book is underneath.**
February 2: Books Written Before I Was Born (These can be books you’ve read or want to read!) (submitted by Davida Chazan @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog)

February 23: Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud (Claire @ Book Lovers Pizza)
As I did not get fully into reading aside from maybe one or two books a year until April 2020, this list was both easy and difficult for me to complete. Almost every author I read was a new-to-me author as I read a very limited number of authors previously. Now I am expanding more and more and I hope that this list continues to grow as I love discovering new authors to follow. Some of the authors on this list have been around for a long time and others are debut ones. The novels I selected are the first novel that I read from that author.
