Woman reading by Mary Cassatt.
I've been memed by Brian Lindenmuth and here's the challenge. List the writers you've read that were new to you this year. Bold the ones that were debut authors in 2008. Tag some people.
I'm interpreting "new to you" to mean the first book by that author I've read, not someone I'd never heard of. I hope that's right. There were lots of other good books this year but all from authors I've read before.
No Time for Goodbye, Linwood Barclay
The Paperboy, Pete Dexter
Brick Lane, Monica Ali
The Bottoms, Joe Lansdale
Robbie's Wife, Russell Hill
Shattered, Richard Neely
Dust Devils, James Reasoner
Four Corners of the Night, Craig Holden
I Am Legend, Richard Matheson
Out Stealing Horses, Ped Pedderson
Dawn Patrol, Don Winslow
Loving Frank, Nancy Horan
Small Crimes, Dave Zeltserman
House of Happy Endings, Leslie Garis
Go With Me, Castle Freeman
Please forgive me for tagging but it's part of the game. So I tag: Sandra Ruttan, David Cranmer and Patrick Shaun Bagley. If they want to play, that is.
And anyone who wants to list a few of their 2008 discoveries on here, I'd be glad to hear some names because I'm Christmas shopping at Educators at Borders this week.
