Top Ten Favorite Authors In General YA Fiction
(in random order)
1. Kiera Cass, of course! She wrote The Selection, one of my favorite books to date.
2. Anna Banks… awesome, awesome author! She wrote Of Poseidon, another favorite of mine.
3. Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares. She totally inspired me to read more dark YA books.
4. Gregg Olsen, author of Envy and Betrayal. Another two of my favorite books ever. He is super talented. His books made me like mystery, I was never fond of the genre before.
5. Maria V. Snyder. This woman has a talent for fiction. She just draws in into the story and makes you feel like you’re really in there. Amazing!
6. Jodi Lynn Anderson, author of Tiger Lily. What a great book! She gave me a whole new perspective on the Peter Pan story and on Tiger Lily. I loved it.
7. Colleen Houck. This is a woman who does her research. Tiger’s Curse was so well written, with such a great amount of detail about Indian culture that I think she must have spent a long, long time just taking notes on the subject. Great job.
8. Aimée Carter, author of The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted. She did a great job in introducing the reader to the sequel. I had completely forgotten everything from the first book, but I was able to get right into the second one. I loved that she was able to include a few clues as to what happened in the first book without being obvious. Loved it.
9. Tabitha Suzuma, author of Forbidden. She has a way with words, she made me cry! Seriously. It was crazy. The book was so powerful.
10. Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten. Her book was so well planned out that I would have never suspected the ending. I loved being kept in suspense. She did a fantastic job.
