Book Blogger HopThe Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books.  She has a great question today so I thought I would play along. 

Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?

I've read some great books recently and have authors to share.

1.   Aimee Bender.  I recently finished her book The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, which was delicious and I plan to read more of her books.  She has such an interesting voice!

2.  Heidi W. Durrow.  Reading her book The Girl Who Fell From the Sky was sad and hopeful at the same time.  Check out this insightful interview with the author about how Rachel's story emerged.

3. Lisa Genova.  This author is impressively smart and her knowledge comes through in her book, Still Alice, about Alzheimer's disease.  Alice is a champion who will make you cry and laugh. 

Give any one of these fantastic female author's a try. 
Now I'm going to hop around and take note of other blogger suggestions!  I can feel my list growing already!
