1. Amy Silver - 'The Reunion'
This year I read Amy Silver's novel 'The Reunion' and absolutely loved it. I also have copies of Amy Silver's other novels, but never managed to actually read them. I will definitely pick these up in 2015, though, and hope they'll be just as amazing as 'The Reunion'!
2. Alexa Adams - 'Tales of Less Pride and Prejudice' series
Author Alexa Adams wrote her own retelling of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' and I got to read all three parts of the series this year. I immediately fell in love with her style of writing and imagination, and can't wait to check out more of her work in the future!
3. Jane Green - 'Tempting Fate'
I can't believe it took me this long to read one of chick lit queen Jane Green's novels. I read 'Tempting Fate' and 'Saving Grace' this year and they were both amazing novels; definitely one of my new favourite authors!
4. Rachel Hollis - 'Party Girl'
Rachel Hollis released her debut novel 'Party Girl' this year, so she's not only a new-to-me author but new-to-the-whole-world! However, I absolutely loved this book and I can't add it to enough top 10's, so am grabbing my chance to also include her on this one!
5. Danielle Steel - 'First Sight'
Another author who has been around for years and years within the world of women's fiction, and one of my mother's personal favourites. I finally read one of her books this year; can't believe it took me so long!
6. J. Courtney Sullivan - 'The Engagements'
I hadn't even heard of J. Courtney Sullivan when I got the chance to review her novel 'The Engagements' this year. I was blown away by the book and have high hopes for her other works.
7. Hannah Beckerman - 'The Dead Wife's Handbook'
Another debut novel that definitely made an impression on me the past year is Hannah Beckerman's 'The Dead Wife's Handbook.' A new author and I can't wait to read more of her work in the future.
8. Ruth Saberton - 'Escape for the Summer'
I also hadn't heard of Ruth Saberton and her work before I got the chance to review 'Escape for the Summer' last year. It was a thoroughly enjoyable novel and I really hope I will be able to pick up other Ruth Saberton works in the near future.
