Best new-to-me authors Q2 2012

My reading overall has slowed down considerably over the last few months but I still managed to read 13 books by new-to-me authors from April to June. One of those is Australian author Virginia Duigan’s THE PRECIPICE which I read in April and haven’t stopped thinking about since. I adored its septuagenarian protagonist and its depiction of my country’s beauty, growing old and rubbing along in modern society.

Other books by new to me authors that I’d recommend are

All of these are authors I will happily read more books from.

Of course reading new authors isn’t always a success and some of the authors I tried out won’t be leaping back on to my TBR but I’m philosophical about these experiences. Finding a book like THE PRECIPICE, which I simply love to bits, makes all the not-so-good reads well worth the experimentation.

    I’ve read a few on your list, Bernadette, and would agree that they are good books by authors I’d read again. I have not yet read The Precipice but it is on my list. I tend to find I have a batch of books at any one time, and occasionally make a decision that I’ll read them all before obtaining any more…now is such a time as my “to be read” shelf is full 😉

    Thanks for the list. I have The Precipice sitting on the top of my TBR stack. I put Antonio Hill’s and Annie Hauxwell’s books on my Wish list and perhaps others will join them.
