Top Ten Books/Authors That Deserve More Attention
This week is a free topic, so here are the top 10 books and authors who I belive deserve more attention in the blogosphere, the media, and in general.

1. The Pace by Shelena Shorts (2009)
Eternal love without the paranormal creature vampire / werewolf / faerie / or fallen angel thing.

2. Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev (2009)
One of the most truly unique books out there in my opinion. A strong heroine with a mind of her own in a magical theatre.

3. The Big Crunch by Pete Hautman (2011)
A sweet and honest contemporary that reads like an indie movie. (My review)

4. Candor by Pam Bachorz (2009)
Pam Bachorz has a knack for creating dystopians that take place in small, isolated places with antagonists who truly believe they are doing the right thing.

5. Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston (2008)
A very different take on faerie stories, with more action :)

6. I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone by Stephanie Kuehnert (2008)
A contemporary that doesn't gloss over the sharp edges in the heroine's life.

7. Need by Carrie Jones (2008)
Evil, sexy pixies and the phobia-collecting girl who is determined to stop them at all costs. ALL of Carrie Jones' books deserve more attention.

8. Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn (2002)
I know 2002 was 10 years ago (actually, I just realized that...), but this book was one of the most different contemporaries I'd ever read and I loved it.

9. Jars of Glass by Brad Barkley & Heather Hepler (2008)
These authors have 3 books out and I have loved every single one of them. This one broke my heart a little.

10. Breathing by Cheryl Renee Herbsman (2009)
One of the sweetest contemporary love stories I've ever read!


  1. Good topic! I'll be adding The Pace and Candor to my list!

  2. Eyes Like Stars = YES! I really enjoyed its unique take on fairies and literature/play characters.

  3. Amanda - Glad you like the topic! I hope you enjoy the books :)

    Natalie - I'm so happy someone else loves that book!


Leave me some love :D
