This is my list of Top Favorite authors. I put alot of thought into this list. I do not take this list lightly. If an author is on this list, There's a pretty good reason why. I am going to run you down the top 6 favorite authors. Ready?
Number 6 : John Green
Favorite Book: The Fault in our Stars.
I know, I know. Every teenage/Young adults are riding the John Green Fan Train right now, But this is seriously an amazing book. There is not one part of it that was not well written. John Green sends you on a emotional rollercoaster with this one. John Green is definitely a newbie on my favorite authors list. But I have no doubts that he may rise to the top, or close to it, rather quickly. "Looking for Alaska" is next on my reading agenda. I will let you all know how this turns out.
Number 5: Susane Colasanti
Favorite Book: Something like Fate
Susane Colasanti is one of my first reads. I started my book obsession when I was working nights at a local hospital downtown. I would Work 3 - 12 hour shifts a week. Well all the other nights were stuck on the same schedule. Sleep all day, up all night. At the time, I was living with my parents and wouldn't really be able to leave, and everyone was asleep anyways, so I started to pass the sleepless nights by reading. Susane Colasanti, was one of the first ones that I couldn't put down. She is now one of the authors in my library that I own multiple books by. That's not usually the case. She is very well written, Her Story lines flow nicely, and she is relatable. I have not picked up one book, that I didnt have a hard time putting down.
Number 4: Jennifer Echols
Favorite Book: Going too Far
Jennifer Echols, like all the authors on my list, is an amazing writer. Well written, Story flows nicely, yada yada yada. The think that I love about her, is that he stories seem to have a bit of an edge to it. Kinda badass. She always has very strong women characters, most of her books are romantic, but in a teenage years sorta way. Makes you feel like you are reliving your high school years all over again (without the snotty girls and the dumb jock boys). Any and all of her books are good reads. Cant wait to check out the rest of her catalog.
Number 3: Jenny Han
Favorite Book: The Summer I Turned Pretty.
This is actually a series. "The Summer I Turned Pretty", "Its not summer without you", and "We'll always have Summer". Three amazing books. This is the only books I have ever read from Jenny Han, and I love them! I can not wait to read more of her work, as it becomes available to me. She is a great author. All the books in this series seem to flow. The next one making you impatient for the next. I am still waiting for another book, although Ms. Han has made it clear that this is the end of the road for Belly. I have read many series, and by atleast the second book, I am bored and dont care about what happens in the end. I have a hard time keeping interest in series, if there is more than 3, I just never end up finishing it. Not at all the case with Jenny Han. I could not get enough of the characters. She is very good at making sure her readers know every possible detail.
Number 2: Nicholas Sparks
Favorite Book: The Last Song
To be honest, I had he hardest time trying to decide my favorite book from Mr. Sparks. To be honest, Every hopeless romantic bookworm, loves Nicholas Sparks.
To be honest, The notebook is not his greatest work.
Nicholas Sparks, is a great writer and even better at making sure the whole story is captured in the film adaptations. I can not just chose one book by him. Its impossible for me. My sister and I both love his work and have a tradition of our own. We always read the book first. Right when it starts advertising for the movie, we start ( I am always done first). After we both are done, We set a date and go see the movie together. Then we spend the whole car ride home, discussing the movie, comparing it to the book, as well as comparing to other sparks movies. He is a very excellent, well rounded author. He writes books that pull at the heart strings of the younger adult crowds, but then comes out with a book for the older generation. Never disappointing either group. Not many authors can please daughters and there mothers, quite possibly the grandmothers as well. Usually, authors have that one group they appeal to, not Mr. Sparks. Amazing Author.
Number 1: Sarah Dessen
Favorite Book: Dreamland
This is the author, and the book, that started it all. Dreamland started my bookworm obsession around the age of 12. I had a paper to write for school, a book report actually. My mom drove me to the library, drug me to the "Teen" section and make me stay there until I chose a book. I hated the library, I hated to read. I had just found out that I was dyslexic and dreaded any type of reading. I am so glad that my mama took me there. I read dreamland atleast 3 times that summer. I loved it. When I started back with my obsession a few years back, Dreamland was one of the first books I bought. I have read every Sarah Dessen book since. I am absolutely In love with her work. I have not read one book that slightly disappointed. Sarah Dessen has been my favorite author since that day in the library. Her stories are Real, Addicting, and Satisfying all at the same time. Any time I am asking for recommendations, Sarah and this book, are always at the top of my list. I owe all my bookworm obsession happiness to Mrs. Sarah Dessen
