Top 10 Authors who need more love
Rainbow Rowell. J/K! (Well not really, but she’s kicking butt now that everyone is seeing how awesome she is so I won’t count her towards my top ten even though I love her so much!)
1. Gretchen McNeil – I love her books soooo much! If you read my review of Possess please note how many times I use the would creepy. I love that horror in YA is starting to be recognized and becoming a bit more popular. It’s about the only horror I can handle. LOL (P.S. come back on 08/26 when Gretchen stops by GP for the Authors are Rock Stars tour!)
2. Kerstin Gier – I reviewed the first two books in her time travel series Ruby Red & Sapphire Blue and I’m very anxiously awaiting the third and final book Emerald Green. This book was translated from the German original but it reads perfectly.
3. Lauren Morrill – Her debut Meant to Be was so cute! We featured it as part of the SC and thank God Brittany @ The Book Addict’s Guide marked her new one down TBR or I might have missed it! (Well I’m sure I would have stalked her author page eventually. :P) Expect to see her new book, Being Sloane Jacobs featured on the SC in January!!
4. Daisy Whitney – Daph told me about her book Mockingbirds and though I haven’t read it I have read her latest title When You Were Here and it was BEYOND great. I cannot wait to get her older books and I have her next book Starry Nights as well.
5. Kody Keplinger – Have you read The Duff? If not go now, I’ll wait. Worth it right?
6. Catherine McKenzie – A Canadian chick-lit author who writes phenomenal books with unique plots. I want to gobble up all her books.
7. Lisa Lutz – Author of the Spellman Files series, I had never heard of her until last year, but she’s funny (so funny) and her character, a PI Izzy Spellman, who is part of a family of PIs, reminds me a lot of a more controlled & less clutzy Stephanie Plum.
8. Liza Palmer – I have to include her because I just read two of her books nearly back to back and LOVED them. She has the amazing ability to get into a character’s head and understand the psychology behind their actions.
9. Toni Blake – She’s a romance author right up there with Lori Foster and I don’t think she gets enough credit for her fantastic books. Her Destiny series had me obsessed for a little while.
10. Ashley Elston – The Rules for Disappearing is one of my favorite YA books this summer. She’s a Louisiana native & I love the voice of her characters. I can’t wait for more from her.
