Top Ten Tuesday #24: Authors Who Deserve More Recognition
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish with a different topic for a top-ten list each week. You can find out more about it here. This week's topic is: Top Ten Authors Who Deserve More Recognition 1. Terra Elan McVoy I love Terra Elan McVoy's writing - there's just something about it that makes it so easy to get lost in her stories, all of which I've loved. 2. Natalie Standiford How to Say Goodbye in Robot is one of my favorite books of all time, and Natalie Standiford is amazing. 3. Anna Jarzab I don't know if Anna Jarzab belongs on this list because she's getting so much attention for her newest novel Tandem, but I wish she would get some more recognition for her earlier contemporaries All Unquiet Things and The Opposite of Hallelujah, because they're so, so good. 4. Margie Gelbwasser Both of Margie Gelbwasser's novels,Inconvenient and Pieces of Us, are amazing, in a dark, messed-up way. I get that they might be a little too dark for some readers, which explains why they haven't gotten too much attention, but still, I would love for more people to have read them. 5. Jo Knowles Oh, Jo Knowles. I've read and loved each of her books, and Jumping Off Swings is one of my all-time favorites. I really don't know why more people haven't read them.
7. Laura Wiess Laura Wiess's writing is amazing - I loved Such a Pretty Girl! Again, her books might be too dark for some people, but I wish more readers would give her a try. I could only think of seven authors for this list, but oh well. What authors do you wish would get some more recognition?
Hi! I'm a 21-year-old college student originally from Germany going to school in the US, studying English Literature, Spanish, and Queer Studies. When I'm not reading for school, I mainly read Young Adult books, especially contemporary, which is mostly what I review here. I also contribute to Feminists Talk Books (http://www.paperbacktreasures.blogspot.com).
