Chat Between Chapters: Lesser Known Books Everyone Should Read

September 27, 2015 Chat Between Chapters, Featured Posts 11


 Let’s talk about the lesser-known authors/titles that you think everyone should read.

Julie Review Avatar Julie:

I think people should check out  the YA books written by a fellow book club lady, Kimberly Russell. I found all her books to be tasty to gobble up while exploring some serious topics.



I’ve been struggling for ideas for this post all week. Are we just talking about independent authors here? I’m not one of those people who track Twitter followers or Facebook likes. Is there a minimum number before an author is “famous”? Even authors like John Green, Colleen Hoover, or Rainbow Rowell were once unknown to me until someone suggested their books. I think that’s what makes readers special – they are always on the look out for other books, and always willing to suggest new authors or titles to other readers. Book clubs apply here as well. When a group of people get together with varied interests, I am always learning about new authors. So here’s a list of authors you may not have heard about. But should check out.

1) Shannon Hale

2) Gwyn Cready

3) Deborah Coonts

What about everyone else? Any author ideas you can think of to suggest to readers?

    I hadn’t heard of Kimberly Russell so I’ll check her out. I adore Shannon Hale. Even her young reader books are great! Hmm, I’m trying to think of authors that aren’t all over…I like Jim Fergus – he writes historical fiction and I don’t think he’s *that* well known. I’ve been really enjoying Dannika Dark, who is a Texas author and writes PNR. If I think of any others, I’ll check back. 😀

    The first that comes to mind is the Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie. I see these mentioned so rarely. These twin sisters have created an amazing series centered on a group of characters who are so flawed and so real. I am so invested in their stories and will be sad to see the series end.
