December 9: Top ten new-to-me authors I read in 2014

Same as last year (and every year, basically)… I have some tried-and-true favorites, but almost everything I read is by a new author to me! The best new author discoveries I made in 2014, in alphabetical by last name:

Alan Brennert (Moloka’i)
Rene Denfeld (The Enchanted)
Louise Erdrich (The Round House)
Roxane Gay (Bad Feminist)
Hannah Kent (Burial Rites)
Josh Malerman (Bird Box)
David Maraniss (When Pride Still Mattered)
George Packer (The Unwinding)
Jeff VanderMeer (Annihilation)
Sarah Vowell (Assassination Vacation)

What great authors did you discover for the first time in 2014?
