I’m constantly trying new authors. As much as I like to binge favorite authors, I also like finding new authors whose books I can binge! Or just new authors in general. Here are my ten favorite new-to-me authors that I read last year and hope to read more from this year!

Proceed With Caution: This book contains mentions of war injuries and PTSD. The Basics: Falling For Her Soldier is the third book of the series, but it does stand alone.
