Last year was not a good reading year for me, so I only have seven authors on this list. I wanted to read a lot more than I did, but with moving a couple of times, a new job, and lots of changes I wasn’t really prepared for, I spent a lot of time…not reading. But I did finish my novel (again) so I was productive in other ways.
These authors are ones that I’d been recommended by other readers and authors I’ve meant to read and only got to them last year. I tried to keep my list to books that have been out for awhile that people love. I wanted to keep to what I thought the spirit of the prompt was! So here are my top seven!

Susan Dennard is basically my new favorite author. I read both Truthwitch and Windwitch, and I can’t wait until the third one comes out! It’s one of my most anticipated releases of 2019.
Ursula K. Le Guin is an author who did so much in her lifetime. I really liked what she did in A Wizard of Earthsea. It allowed for a great discussion in our bookclub.
Hannah West wrote a really great fantasy that was a mix of fairytale retellings! I really want to check out her other books as soon as I can.
