Favorite New To Me Authors: 2021

Hi Gemmies! 2022 is almost upon us and I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite authors that I discovered in 2021. Each of these authors wrote books that I absolutly loved. From monster boy toys, murder mysteries, contemporary love, creature features, each one brought me joy. And what makes it even better is that most of these authors are independently published. I don't think Indie authors get enough love so I'm really proud that the majority of the list is dedicated to them. I also have a goal for 2022 to continue to shine a spotlight on Indie published work. Now, these are not all of my favorite authors just authors that I read for the first time in 2021 and fell head over heels over. Check out my list below!
