|Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish|
I think I've sung Sangu Mandanna's praise like a trillion times on my blog. I loved Lost Girl. It's a totally different, amazing, unique dystopian that's light on the dystopian but heavy on everything else in the most perfect way possible.
Another book I can't shut up about. Just read it, okay? And then marvel at the brain behind it. Although, I do have to admit her Twitter skills are lacking. So, really, just admire the brain.
Holly Smale write this quirky, cute books AND happens to be adorable in person and hilarious on Twitter. If ever you feel like you're having THE WORST DAY EVER, just stop by Holly Smale's Twitter. She'll either A) cheer you up with her spontaneous wit or B) prove to you that she's having a worse day than you'll ever have - all without making you feel bad for her.
Talk about an author who embodies her genre - if you want to live the Steampunk life, or even just observe someone who already does, Gail Carriger's the lady to watch. Oh, also, her books are DELIGHTFUL.
I love Chloe. So much. As such, I think we all need to throw a little love at Shelley Coriell. Immediately. Was that not enough evidence for love-throwing? I don't actually care. I'm just making demands here.
Do you love The Vampire Diaries? Gilmore Girls? What's that? You're not following Rebecca Serle? That's a mistake. She talks about these shows the way I talk about Veronica Mars. Which is a lot, considering I have a whole feature on my blog dedicated to that particular show. Oh, also, I like her book and am SUPER EXCITED to read her new one.
Guys, Publisher's Weekly agrees with me on this one. So do a lot of my blogger friends. I just finished Nantucket Blue and I've got so many personal feels, I can't even. Besides, Leila's the cutest person in the world. So, like, get on that.
Allen Zadoff is the only author on this list whose book I have not yet read. So how can he be on a list of authors who I think deserve more recognition? Well, Alan Zadoff happens to be one of the friendliest authors I've ever met. I mean, no author I've met was mean or anything, but Alan was just fantastic. So, that said, go put this book on your TBR list and start paying attention to this man.
The cuteness in Meant to Be is almost too much for me. But it's not because I love cuteness. You guys know that, right? Quirk and Cute. Those should be genres and all books fitting those words should immediately be placed in my hands. I also really like the authors of quirky/cute books. Which makes my push of MORE RECOGNITION FOR LAUREN MORRILL fairly logical.
I love, love, LOVE this series. I haven't even finished it and I'm talking it up to everyone. These four short books are crazy, insane, awesome. So I have to imagine the author is as well. I also really enjoy her tweets on an informational level. Like, she's not trying to entertain me or drive me crazy. She's just talking. And I like talking. OH AND ALSO. Some of the proceeds from her books go to charity. So really, I'm not sure what you're doing still reading this post.
Wait, are you still reading this post? If so, stop by the comments and let me know what authors you think I need to be paying more attention to - whether because their books are phenomenal or their Twitter feeds are hilarious, I don't care. I just wannna know!
