Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week I get to choose my top ten favorite new-to-me authors in 2012!  Considering this is the first year I really committed myself to reading more YA...this list will include mostly "well-knows" :)  Happy Reading!
  1. Sarah Fine - as I'm sure you ALL know by now...her debut novel, Sanctum: Guards of the Shadowlands, blew me away.  It's my favorite 2012 book...and she's my favorite new author :)
  2. John Green - I can't believe I've only been reading his books for less than a year.  They are such classics in my mind, it seems like I've been reading him forever!
  3. Veronica Roth - yep...I'm a fan...
  4. Juli Alexander - I loved Stirring Up Trouble and can't wait to see what comes next from this author!
  5. Kieran Scott - her He's So/She's So trilogy is fantastic...write, please :)
  6. Miranda Kenneally - SO her...
  7. Sarah Dessen - I had to look at Goodreads to confirm I never read her books prior to 2012.  I'm so lame!
  8. Jay Asher - I really liked Thirteen Reasons Why...need to read more from this author
  9. & 10.  Kristin Hannah & Emily Giffin - enjoyed discovering their work, and look forward to reading more once I'm caught up (yeah...I know I'm dreaming!) on my TBR YA list :)
Who are YOU happy to know?!  Honestly, I can't imagine my life without these 10 fantastically talented authors in it :)  THANK YOU for your writing :):):)
