Top Ten Tuesday a weekly meme/original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Click the link to go to their site to see the original list for today plus links to a whole slew of other blogs. After you read mine, of course.
Today's Topic is: Authors who I think deserve more recognization
1.Amy Spalding author of The Reece Malcolm List. This debut of a teenager meeting and living with her mother for the first time was so cute and real and lovely. I'm really excited for her next book Ink if Thicker Than Water which is being released in December.
2.Jennifer Close author of Girls in White Dresses. This debut about a group of 20-something women trying to make it in those years out of college was absolutely pitch perfect. I wish this was the type of book we meant when we talk about NA.
4.Alissa Grosso author of Popular. Alissa Grosso's debut, Popular, blew me away. The twist was amazing and changed the whole complexity of the novel. I have her newest book on my Kindle, but haven't gotten to it yet.
Megan McCafferty author of the Jessica Darling series. Jessica Darling is my spirit animal. I wish everyone would read this series.
6.Curtis Sittenfeld author of Prep and American Wife. Prep is seriously one of my all-time favorite novels. I've read it a dozen times and I'm still blown aware by the talent of this author.
7.Tim Sandlin author of Skipped Parts and the rest of the GroVont series. I love this Wyoming author that writes funny satire. I had the pleasure of attending a writing seminar years ago in which he was a guest speaker/workshop leader and even had a piece critiqued by him.
8.Elizabeth Eulberg author of The Lonely Hearts Club and Prom and Prejudice. Sometimes you just need a cute, fun book. I've read four of this author's books and each one is fast and adorable.
9.Jonathan Tropper author of How to Talk to a Widower and This is Where I Leave You. I really enjoy Jonathan Tropper's books. They are always funny and sad and true and witty. Definitely recommend if you've never read anything by him.
Margaret Atwood. Awesome author of awesome books. I know almost everyone has read something by Margaret Atwood, but she is just plain amazing and I wish more people were familiar with her work.
Wow. This was really hard. A lot of the authors that I love, like say E. Lockhart and Stephanie Perkins, get a lot of love from my Goodread and blogger friends, but does that mean they are getting the right amount of love from the rest of the world? I don't know. Oh, well. I'm sticking with what I got. I'm excited to see who you wish was getting more love. So link me up!
