Top Ten Authors Who Deserve More Recognition

Top Ten Authors Who Deserve More Recognition


1)      Melissa West author of Gravity.
               She is a debut author back in 2012 and I can`t wait to read more of her books. Gravity was a new one for me because of the alien inclusion.

2)      Noami Novik author of the Tameraire Series.
           The only reason I love fantasy is because of this woman. My dad was shopping while I was home sick and he picked me up the first book. I devoured it and the other books in the series. Right now I have a bookmark in Tongues of Serpents back home.

3)      Angie Sage author of Septimus Heape
                   I have not read the last two books in this series only because I cannot do MG right now. Angie is who got me and my friends to start book swapping and book talking.

4)      Melinda Morgan author of Etude
             I must have Melinda on this list because she was the first author to send me an ARC, To ever post a comment on my blog and to email me privately about her Birthright Legacy.


5)      Rachel Harris author or My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century
            I am a Flirt Squad member. Although I am only 3 chapters into MSSSC I have read her adult book Taste of Heat. the review should have been up last week but Blogger decides if and when it wants to work. I love the connection Rachel has with us bloggers.



1)      Jackson Pearce author of Where the Light Is.

I was asked by Ashley to pick a story to read to her too help her fall asleep and I enjoyed it so much I didn’t realize she fell asleep and finished it in one sitting. It was a nice coming of age story about a young miner and his special cave friend.

2)      Leah Rae Miller author of Summer I Became a Nerd.

This was a recommended read based on the fact that I love role playing and this novel doesn’t disappoint. Every nerd at heart will connect and love this book.

3)      Jon Flanagan author of Ranger`s Apprentice

The rangers apprentice series is a quick middle grade series I picked up as an inbetween read and it had a decent story line and held my attention pretty well. I hope John Flanagan tries his hand at writing a more adult fantasy novel.

4)      Cornelia Funke author of Thief Lord

The thief lord was the first novel I picked up by Cornelia Funke and I loved her writing so much that I had to read her Inkheart series as well. Amazing character and plot development. Can never go wrong with one of her books.

5)      Khaled Hosseini author of The Kite Runner

This novel was one of the choices I had to choose for my AP English class in high school and this is a gripping drama about a boy and his family in modern day Afghanistan.

Read Long and Prosper,
Ashley & Sean

  1. Thanks so much for including me!! This post REALLY made me smile ;)

    It's an honor to be included with so many fabulous authors!


  2. Jackson Pearce writes some pretty awesome books! :) I admit to still needing to read Thief Lord and the Angie Sage books. I really want to though. Following you guys on GFC now.

    My TTT:

    1. I have only read Sweetly by her but I plan to read Fathom soon.

      Angie Sage is MG for that series but I loved them when I was younger. The last book came out a few years ago so I went a read it and realized how MG the series really was. (Still finished it though)

      Thanks for following (sorry I took forever to respond)

  3. Omg. Did you grow up in my generation?

    I need to re-read Thief Lord and catch up on the Septimus Heap series... I didn't know that Fyre was out!

    Great list! Summer I Became a Nerd sounds like something I'd enjoy too.

    1. Depends... I was born in 1995, been reading since Pre-K. (Benefits of a grandmother who was also a teacher)

      Thief Lord is the only reason I want to go to Venice.

      Fyre is not out yet, they had the cover reveal of it. My best friend got me hooked on that series and now even at 18 I just need to know how it all ends.

      Summer I Became a Nerd really opened my eyes to how I act. I never really liked talking about my nerdiness in real life and after reading that book i made a promise to not hide my bookworm self from the my local world.



Thank you for commenting. I reply to comments the end of every week. You are amazing readers :)
