Top 5 Tuesday – Top Authors A – E

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

Favorite Books: The Anatomical Shape of a Heart  & Serious Moonlight 

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.

For example: 

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 

Favorite Books: Along for the Ride and Lock & Key 

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?
