Top Ten Tuesday: Authors Who Deserve More Recognition


Top Ten Authors Who Deserve More Recognition


1. Josephine Angelini - I looooooove reading Josephine Angelini's books. Her Starcrossed series is amazing, one of my most favorite series ever. I love the world and characters that she creates in her stories. I can't get enough of her writing. I need her to write more books, and soon! Hint, hint!

2. Michelle Hodkin - Seriously? Have you read her books? The Mara Dyer series is SO good. I am constantly recommending this series to people, and it constantly amazes me when people haven't read her books yet! Love her!

3. Tara Hudson - I love Tara Hudson's Herafter series. It is series that I always recommend to people that like ghost stories. So good!

4. Lauren Oliver - Ok, Lauren Oliver is pretty darn popular. But she is another one of my go-to authors when I'm recommending a book to people. I loooooove it when people read one of her books and report back to me that they love her as much as I do. I'm really glad to see people falling in love with her books. I love her Delirium series!

5. Lisa McMann - I adore Lisa McMann's writing style. She always manages to pull me into whatever book I am reading of hers. I always end one of her books wanting more. Check out her Dream Catcher's and Vision's series!

6. Stephanie Perkins - Ok, so most people in the book blogging world know of Stephanie Perkins. But it amazes me the people that still haven't read her books! I love Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door! Such sweet reads.

7. Aimee Carter - I LOVE Aimee Carter's Goddess Test series! I love reading about greek mythology, and her books always grab my attention. More people definitely need to read her books!

8. Katie McGarry - I adore Katie McGarry's Pushing the Limits series. Katie has a way with bad-ass characters, and I just love reading her stories. I am currently waiting to get my hands on Isaiah's story, and I can't wait!

9. Jamie McGuire - Ok, I'm actually starting to see Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster around more and more. It always makes me smile when I see someone reading this series! Great books.

10. Anna Carey - This is definitely an author that I would like to see more people reading. I really enjoyed the Eve series, and how Carey keeps me guessing at every turn.


So, that's my list! If you haven't checked out some of these authors, I definitely think you should! I can't wait to see your list as well. :)

  1. I've been meaning to start both Mara Dyer and Pushing the Limits. I hear so many good things about them all the time. I'm honestly surprised I haven't read them yet. Hah.

  2. Great list!! Lauren Oliver is my favorite author, she writes so beautifully! I enjoyed the Mara Dyer books as well. I'm reading Eve now. Aimee Carter is on my list, too! I loved Goddess Test and I haven't met too many people who know about it!

  5. Excuse me while I kick myself for forgetting to put Josephine Angelini on my own list! *Facepalm* I absolutely adored both Starcrossed and Dreamless. Now I just need to get around to reading Goddess! I don't know why I'm stalling given how much I loved the first two novels in the series.

    Great choices this week! From the looks of things, many people wish that Katie McGarry would grow in popularity. With some help from the blogging community, it seems like that just might happen ;)

  6. I adore Stephanie Perkins - but I'd not heard of her before I started coming across Anna and then Lola on blogs. They're great books! I agree that more people need to know about her and her books!
    Great list!

  7. It's been a while since I finished Lisa Mcman's Dreamcatcher series, but I remember enjoying it. The third one not so much, but the first two were awesome. I still need to read Eve! I should get on that, since I own it, lol.

  10. A big fat YES to Stephanie Perkins and Michelle Hodkin! And Lauren Oliver, of course. I loved Before I Fall and Pandemonium, although Requiem was a bit of a let down.

  11. Katie McGarry is fantastic! I hope more people will read her books. I also like Lisa McMann though it has been awhile since I read her stuff. Wake was one of my favorites a few years ago. I think Michelle Hodkin's The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is pretty similar. I still need to read the sequel.

  12. Stephanie Perkins is on my list too! It's so hard to get someone outside of the YA book blogging community or YA lovers to read one of her books. I really think everyone needs to read Anna and the French Kiss!

    Great List!

  18. Yay! A list with authors I recognize! I've been feeling very lost on these lists haha. I am SO excited for the third Mara Dyer book coming out!! And I just read my first Lauren Oliver book a couple months ago, and it was fantastic! I am one of the few people left who haven't read the Stephanie Perkins books, but it's absolutely at the top of my to do list now!

  21. Haha, I said the same thing about Stephanie Perkins. And I am just kicking myself for not thinking to include Katie McGarry. I love, love, love her and her books sooooo much.

  22. Oh, look at your cute redesign!! I love that you've kept the same elements, just redid it a bit. Most excellent list -- I do love all those authors and hope they do eventually get the recognition they so richly deserve!

  23. I love Stephanie Perkins and Katie McGarry! I think you are right that, while they are pretty well-known in the blogging community, they deserve mainstream recognition. I'll have to check out all the other authors on your list.
