Top Ten Authors Who Deserve More Recognition
(Click on the title links to go to my reviews)
 
A lot of these authors are already pretty big time, but I love them so much and they can always use more people knowing about them and their books!
 
1. Heather Lyons. (Heather is the author of the Fate series and I cannot even tell you guys how much I love her books. It's borderline obsessive. If you like Urban Fantasy, this is the series to check out! The first book, A Matter of Fate, is considered YA, where the second A Matter of Heart, is more Mature YA/New Adult. Did I mention there are two super hot twins?)
 
                                                      

2. C.J. Redwine. (C.J. is the author of Defiance, which is the first book in her trilogy. Her second book Deception releases late August. I would probably classify this as YA Fantasy, but it definitely has a Dystopia feel to it also.)
 
3. Myra McEntire. (Myra is the author of Hourglass, Timepiece, and soon to be released Infinityglass. This is another one of my favorite series. I love books about time travel, and I felt like these were just well-done!)
 
 
4. Trisha Wolfe. (Trisha is the author of Destiny's Fire, Astarte's Wrath, Of Silver and Beasts, and the upcoming novels Of Darkness and Crowns, The Darkest Part, and Fireblood. Trish is so multi-talented. She is able to rock out different genres and is such a talented writer. I am so proud to be a part of her #TuffGirlL!)
 
 

5. Rachel Harris. (Rachel is the author of My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, Taste the Heat, and the soon to be released A Tale of Two Centuries. Rachel writes both YA and Adult novels, so she has something for both age groups. She is another fantastic writer and I am proud to be apart of her #FlirtSquad!)


6. Denise Grover Swank. (Denise is author to several different books, but the ones that have really caught my eye are her most recent New Adult ones: The Off The Subject series. After Math and Redesigned are two of my favorite NA novels and they are such great reads!)

 
7. Keary Taylor. (Keary has also written quite a few books, but I first became familiar with her through her YA Sci-Fi/Dystopian Eden series: The Bane, The Human, and the upcoming conclusion The Eve. I am such a big fan of these books! Keary has also explored the Paranormal, as well as the Contemporary genres.)

 
8. Emma Hart. (Emma is so awesome. She has written The Memories series (Never Forget, Holding On, & Always Remember) as well as the in-progress Game series (The Love Game, Playing For Keeps) I have fallen in love with her writing and she creates such strong secondary characters and I really like that.)
 
 
9. Courtney Allison Moulton (I am a big fan of Courtney's Paranormal Angelfire series :(Angelfire, Wings of the Wicked, and Shadows in the Silence). I know there are quite a few angel books out there, but I really loved these. And Will? SWOOOON!) (EDIT: Teresa loves Will too. Woooo! I don't know why I thought she was for Cadan! )
 
 
10. C.J. Duggan. (I just finished reading C.J's Boys of Summer and An Endless Summer and they were SO good. They were great summer reads and definitely worth checking out!)


 
11. Rachel Brookes (Rachel's debut Just Breathe came out a couple of weeks ago and let me tell you. She is one to watch you guys. I loved every minute of it and I can't wait for more!)


12. Caisey Quinn (Have you read Girl with Guitar yet? Really? Why not?! Country music, bad boy, sassy girl- what's not to love?! Get it.)
