Top Ten New-To-Me Authors in 2020

Note: This is a queued post and will be linked to the main one when I get a chance. Original prompt/linkup post can be found over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

(Bonus Note: I raged for 20 minutes and almost started rewriting this post when I couldn't find it anywhere, until I realized I'd accidentally 'scheduled' it for this date in 2020. The perils and pitfalls of being able to backdate...)
-----------------
Anyway, this is always a fun prompt! In 2020, I read books from at least 55 different authors who are new to me (give or take a few for co-authors I didn't spot when I counted by sorting Goodreads), but after some intense scrutiny I have narrowed it down to a top 10, chosen via secret algorithm that weighs the quality of their book(s) against how interesting their other books look to me. Listed in alphabetical order for simplicity's sake/so I don't have to actually choose my favorite.
