Hey Bookwyrms! I’m so excited to participate in Shanah’s Top 5 Tuesday! If you’d like to check out the different prompts for March and participate, click here .
This month is extra special because we’re highlighting authors! I’ve decided to go by last names since that’s usually the first thing I see on the spines of books. But you can choose first names or last names, no pressure in these parts.
A : Elizabeth Acevedo
Favorite Book: With the Fire on High
Looking Forward to: Clap When You Land
Release Date: May 5, 2020
Acevedo literally snuck up on me. I had no idea just how much I’d love her writing style. And now, I can’t get enough. Her characters are relatable and her story-telling is effortless. One minute you’re in your reading chair, the next, you’re in a high school culinary class learning a new recipe. My only wish is that I could’ve read her books back when I was in high school. I can’t wait to dive into what will be a heartbreakingly great read, Clap When You Land!
B: Jenn Bennett
Looking Forward to: Chasing Lucky
Release Date: May 5, 2020
Bennett writes young coming-of-age books that have the essence of an old soul. And that is why I absolutely love her books. She also manages to write well-researched stories that are equal parts informative as well as entertaining.
The Anatomical Shape of a Heart: Art & Physiology
Alex, Approximately: Movies
Starry Eyes: Astronomy
Serious Moonlight: Criminology & Mystery
After reading each book, I felt more knowledgable about subjects that I didn’t think I’d be interested in or knew little about. Jenn Bennett’s books are always an adventure and journey.
C: Katherine Center
Favorite Book: Things You Save in a Fire
Looking Forward to: What You Wish For
Release Date: July 14, 2020
Centers’ books are gut-wrenching and brilliant! Simply put. If you’re looking for stories filled with authentic storylines and development, please pick her books up!
D: Sarah Dessen
Dessen has a very special place in my heart because I found her books the summer before my first year of college and fell so deeply in love with them. I certainly wish I read her books while I was in high school—I have no excuse since a majority of them were out while I was in high school—and I recommend them for lovers of contemporary romance.
E: Unfortunately, I have no top/favorite authors whose last name begins with an E.
If you do, please leave some suggestions in the comments down below!
And there you have it, some of my top authors! Are there any we have in common? Are there any books you’re also looking forward to?
