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