TTT: Top Ten New-to-Me Authors I Read for the First Time in 2016

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is about the authors each blogger discovered this year, and these are mine!

Top Ten Tuesday – YA Characters You’d Like to Revisit in 10 Years

I'll start off by admitting that I really only have 5. That being said, I've also added a bonus 5 characters whose authors made me very happy by having the series encompass their entire lives or at least a large enough portion, beginning as young adults and some even covering their deaths and future generations....

It combines all my favorite elements and then puts them in the past instead of the future for some unexpected fun. While the story takes place in the past, there is care to neither overlook...
