Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.

What new authors did you find in 2022? Did you read any of these books?
The only author I’ve read on this list is Deanna Raybourn and I love her books. I’m currently listening to Killers of a Certain Age and am enjoying it. Most of the other authors you listed are on my TBR!
I am yet to read all these authors though I have been wanting to read Lessons in Chemistry and Nita Prose’s The Maid for some time.. and Eva Heart’s book cover is so very cool
I haven’t read any of those, but I did read a few new-to-me authors in 2022… Sharon Hinck, Chris Fabry, Denise Weimer, etc…
I’ll have to check out those authors!
Yay for Carley Fortune, Sarah Grunder Ruiz, Karen Winn, and Elle Kennedy! They were all new authors for me, as well. I’m excited to read more from them.
I hope we enjoy their future books!
These are all new to me. May you discover many more great authors in 2023 and continue reading the ones you love!
Thank you! And I hope you discover many new authors too
I’ve not read any of these, but Killers of A Certain Age sounds like an interesting read.
It’s so clever! I hope you get a chance to read it someday
Killers of A Certain Age was so good. I’m currently reading her Veronica Speedwell series and LOVING it!!
I have an arc for #8 in the Speedwell series. So, I need to read some of the series first!
I’ve read Elle Kennedy before but it’s been a long time. My favorites are her collaborations with Sarina Bowen. I definitely want to try that Julia Whelan book!
I hope you enjoy the Julia Whelan book, It was one of my favorites from last year.
I’ve not read any of these, but Killers of A Certain Age is one I want to get to this year, so I’m glad to see you enjoyed it.
It’s a good one, Jo. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Most of these I haven’t read. I started listening to the Julia Whelan one, but I’m not sure I’m enjoying it. I like her as a narrator, but the story is kind of eh for me. I do love Elle Kennedy, but have only read some of her novellas I think!
I love Elle Kennedy too. I’ve only read one of her books, but I’m hoping to read more this year
It always feels amazing how many similar books we read and we both enjoy them. Great list! Nan Fischer is also on my new author list.
I can’t wait to see what Nan Fischer comes out with next!
I really enjoyed The Maid and am looking forward to reading Killers of a Certain Age and Lessons in Chemistry. Great list, Wendy🙂
Thank you, Mallika! I hope you enjoy Lessons in Chemistry and Killers of a Certain Age
Yay for Killers of a Certain Age! I need to read Lessons in Chemistry. That book is everywhere!
Lessons in Chemistry is so good!
Lessons in Chemistry was a fave new author for me too. I still haven’t got around to The Maid or Killers of a Certain Age though I’m on the library wait list. I love finding new authors and this week is certainly adding to my TBR with every visit!

I really think you’ll enjoy Killers of a Certain Age. I hope you get them soon.
Loved Killers of a Certain Age and Thank You For Listening. I want to try a few others on your list too.
I’d like to read The Maid.
Which of these books is your favourite?
Lessons in Chemistry is my favorite
Great. I’ll check it out.
I had no idea Julia Whelan was an author herself. Her narration is always great. 🙂
I agree! And she’s a wonderful author
Great list Wendy. I have read 5 of these authors and enjoyed them. That means I have 5 others to check out. I hope my TBR doesn’t grow too much today.
I know what you mean, Carla. These posts have made my TBR grow too
We discovered Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti in 2022!
I’ll have to check them out!
Nita Prose was a new author for me last year, too, and one I really enjoyed reading. 😀
She’s so good!
THE MAID is such a fun read, isn’t it? I loved it and can’t wait to see what Prose does next. I also love Raybourn’s Veronica Speedwell series. I need to read more of hers, including KILLERS. It sounds entertaining 🙂
Killers is a really funny book. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it.
I don’t know how I forgot Nita Prose on my list! I really enjoyed The Maid. I didn’t read anything by Raybourn this year, but I do love her books. I hope you enjoy many new-to-you authors this year too!
Thank you, Wendy!
You picked some good ones! I still have The Maid on my TBR list.
I hope you enjoy The Maid when you get some time to read it.
I’m glad you discovered so many awesome authors!
Thank you, AJ
Killers of a Certain Age is in my queue. Someone in my book club mentioned Lessons in Chemistry at our last meeting. There are so many good authors and books!
I loved both those books, but Lessons in Chemistry was my favorite. My sisters book club just read it and they all loved it too.
I’ve not read any of those authors, but Lessons in Chemistry is on my TBR and I’m excited to read it!
I hope you enjoy Lessons in Chemistry as much as I did!
I have not read anything by any of these authors. It’s amazing how many authors there are!! I had a hard time narrowing my list to just ten!
I know! That’s what’s so cool about this topic today.
I love Deanna Raybourn’s Veronica Speedwell mysteries. I’m looking forward to reading Killers of a Certain Age. The other authors here aren’t familiar to me, but I’m glad you found plenty of new authors to enjoy!
Thank you, Lark!
Great selection! There are quite a few I want to try as well and I hope they will appear on my 2023 new author list. 😉
I haven’t read any of these books yet, but it’s fun to be introduced to new authors. That’s one of the biggest strengths of TTT, I think!
My post: https://lydiaschoch.com/top-ten-tuesday-new-to-me-authors-i-discovered-in-2022/
Yes, I am loving this topic as I’ve discovered more new authors I want to try this year.
Whelan made my list today, too! I’m glad you found her and Kennedy.
Yes! Both are wonderful authors!
I’ve been meaning to try Julia Whelan, and Some of It Was Real is on my TBR list! Glad to see they were winners for you.
I hope you enjoy Some of it was Real and Julia Whelan when you get the chance.
I recently read Elle Kennedy for the first time. I need to pick up Bad Girl Reputation.
I just saw the third book in the series on NetGalley, The Summer Girl, it’s coming out in July. I requested it, but I haven’t been approved yet. We’ll see!
Carley Fortune and Karen Winn for me, thanks to you Wendy! Wonderful new authors!!😂🤗📚💜
Thank you, Susan!
Hooray for discovering new authors! Carley Fortune and Nita Prose were both new to me as well! Thanks for sharing your answers for this tag Wendy!
Thank you, Jodie!
I’d love to find time to read the Garmus book. Friends in my book club sure loved it.
I don’t know anyone who has read it and didn’t like it. My sisters book club read it and they all loved it too
I read The Maid this month and it was great! So happy I gave it a chance. Thank You for Listening is still on my tbr.
The Maid was a good one for sure. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
I read both Julia Wheelan and Bonnie Garmus for the first time in 2022, as well! I read a lot of new-to-me authors and discovered some new favorites last year.
It’s so much fun to find new authors!
I found so many new authors last year thanks to reading people’s blogs. I really enjoyed Killers of a Certain Age and the Maid.
They were both such good books. I have discovered so many wonderful authors thanks to blogs!
I discovered so many new authors last year, great list 😊
Thank you, Jenny. It’s so exciting to find a new author with books you love.
