Top Ten Underrated Authors in Young Adult
JOHN GREEN!!!... lol j/k
AUTHOR OF: Hold Still, The Disenchantments, and Everything Leads to You were all written by a genius IMO. I could read her writing all day, every day. I don't feel like a lot of people talk about her books in the YA world... and I hope that changes!!
AUTHOR OF: Cracked Up to Be, Some Girls Are, This is Not a Test, Fall for Anything
Oh how I love this author. One of my very, very favorites. I want everyone to know about her.
AUTHOR OF: A lot of books! Including: Loud Awake and Lost, All You Never Wanted, The Julian Game, The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone
I hunted her down at BEA because I just had to meet the person behind all these super unique characters! She's written quite a number of books, but I had never heard of her until I stumbled upon All You Never Wanted. She's definitely underrated.
AUTHOR OF: Hate List, Bitter End, Thousand Words, Perfect Escape, Torn Away
She writes about things that hurt my heart... and I love that. Her books are mildly popular, but they should be huge!
AUTHOR OF: A lot of books!! Including: Ten Things We Did and Probably Shouldn't Have, Gimme a Call, Don't Even Think About It
She's SO funny!!! Seriously underrated for her ability to write humor and also make the book feel meaningful.
AUTHOR OF: Nothing Like You, Then You Were Gone, Her and Me and You
She has such a distinct writing style and I personally love it. I want more people to read these books!
AUTHOR OF: Party, Zero, Sick, Random, Manicpixiedreamgirl
Love his characters! So underrated.
AUTHOR OF: Confessions of an Angry Girl, Confessions of an Almost Girlfriend (and a Confessions #3 book coming soon!!!)
I thought these 2 books were so fun to read. Rose is such a strong character that I really wanted this series to catch on w/ more people.
AUTHOR OF: You Don't Know Me, Stuck on Earth, Grandmaster
I love books that feature teenage boy main characters. This author captures them PERFECTLY.
Lisa McMann... sort of
OKAY... not so much Lisa McMann because she is a popular, well-known author. I am talking about the Visions series (Crash, Bang, and Gasp). Those books were really addicting and feature a main girl who is simply adorable. I want THAT particular series to be more visible.
Those are authors I think deserve more praise and more readers!! Can't wait to see which authors you all picked. I think I'll find some new favorites this week :)
