Top Ten Tuesday: Authors That Deserve More Recognition

hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

1. Gabrielle Zevin - She is a brilliant author, but it seems like she is completely underrated.  I've only read Elsewhere and Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac but her other books sound very interesting.

2. Stephanie Perkins - It seems like everyone in the book blog community knows and loves her but outside of our group, not many people 'in the real world' have read her books.

3. Markus Zusak - It still surprises how many people I talk to that haven't read The Book Thief, which is one of my favorite books.  This man is an amazing writer and everyone should read his books.  I think that book is being made into a movie so, he'll be big news soon.

4. Simon Van Booy - His short stories are crafted beautifully. My favorite of his short story collections is The Secret Lives of People in Love.

5. Ellen Raskin - She wrote The Westing Game.  I read this book several times when I was in middle school and I still think it is a great read.  She has some other books that are also really good!

There are probably more on my list but these are the ones I can think of right now.

  1. I love Stephanie Perkins! You are right though, I usually see people reading Sarah Dessen rather than Stephanie Perkins. Thanks for sharing! :)
