Valentine's day is just around the corner, and everyone is thinking of what to do for the ones they love. I, for one, LOVE authors. And, what do you know, February also happens to be Love an Author Month! (Check out this post at Go Teen Writers if you don't believe me).
To show my love and appreciation for authors, I've decided to highlight some of my favorites in a series of posts.
In no particular order, here some authors you should love on:
I've been a Dekker fan for years. Having started with his young adult series, The Lost Books, I was immediately hooked. Since then I've read both his Thrillers and Fantasies, and I keep coming back to his books for their mind blowing plot twists.
Ms. Hale writes for adults, teens, and children, but I've come to love her for her YA Fantasy series, The Books of Bayern. I've read it several times for its lovable characters and creative world.
I recommend: The Goose Girl
She's written over 85 books for both adults and teens. My favorites of hers are her young adult books that explore the lives of your average Christian teenage girls.
I recommend: The Christy Miller Collection, Volume 1.
I'll admit to only reading one series by Ms. Croggon, but I was absolutely blown away by it. That would be her YA High Fantasy series, The Books of Pellinor.
I recommend: The Naming
Check out these authors and their writing! And show some love for YOUR favorite authors by purchasing one of their books, writing a positive review, telling your friends about them, etc. Authors work extremely hard to create stories for us to enjoy. Let's show them how much we appreciate them this month!
