Apparently, I don’t read things by relatively unknown YA authors. Maybe it’s because most of those books tend to be overly romantic. *cringes*
So here is the one lonely YA author
i could think of who I really appreciate…
OKAY ERIN BOW IS TECHNICALLY A YA AUTHOR BUT I ALREADY DID HER
1. Cynthia Hand
I just rediscovered her. I forgot that she’s also a Cynthia. *grins nefariously*
She wrote the Unearthly series, which has angels in. And it makes sense. And angels. And the romance isn’t bad (meaning, there isn’t too much of it). And she’s a Cynthia. *grins even more nefariously*
Random book rec: Pax by Sarah Pennypacker. The cover is beautiful. The book is beautiful. There’s a fox in it. Foxes are good. The fox is ADORABLE. FOXES. THE IRONY. AHHHHHHH
Also, she wrote Clementine. You know, the series about the girl in the orange-striped shirt? Those were good…
(shhh this is how i include non-YA authors in my YA edition of underappreciated authors)
I PREFER CHILDREN’S
FICTION TO YA. RESPECT
CHILDREN’S FICTION TOO.
