This is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. Links go to Goodreads. This week, the topic is:

Top Ten Authors Who Deserve More Recognition 

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)

1. Robin LaFevers - I've seen her novels around quite a bit, but I still think her work should be more widely known.

Out of the Easy

2. Ruta Sepetys - She writes the best historical fiction, really.

I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1)

3. Barry Lyga - I've only read two of his novels, honestly, this one and its sequel. But both were so amazing I just wanted to talk about them with everyone.

Touch of Power (Healer, #1)

4. Maria V. Snyder - To be fair, I know her books are popular, but not to the degree I think they should be.

 The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)

5. Julie Kagwa - I want all her books to be movie-popular. They'd all be excellent films.

Something Like Normal

6. Trish Doller - I wanted her debut novel to be noticed more, because it's awesome.

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)

7. Katie McGarry - This was one of my favorite contemporaries last year.

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)

8. Veronica Rossi - Such lovely characters she writes.

Pivot Point (Pivot Point, #1)

9. Kasie West - I loved this book! And her upcoming work looks just as awesome.

What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles, #1)

10. Kat Zhang - This was such a beautiful story about two sisters trapped in one body.


  1. I'm reading Grave Mercy soon!! Awesome list! I just finished Under the Never Sky and I was blown away, I wasn't expecting it to be that good!

    1. I didn't expect it, either! Maybe because the cover is a little boring?

  2. Really nice list! I'm hoping to check out Kat Zhang's book - it looks really good!

    Bella @ Ciao Bella

  3. I really need to read a Ruta Sepetys book. I have one at home and I just haven't gotten to it.

    My TTT List

    1. I totally understand that - I have around 30 that are just sitting around unread. :/

  4. Great top ten! Julie Kagawa and Veronica Rossi are amazing writers, love their books:)

    My TTT:

    1. Thanks! I adore them both as well.

  5. I haven't read any of these but many of them are on my TBR pile already. I have Pivot Point sitting on my self mocking me. I heard it is a great book.

    My TTT

    1. Pivot Point was a fabulous debut! I'm excited to read her new book, which just came out a week or so ago.

  6. Great list! I debated putting Ruta Septeys and Veronica Rossi on mine. I think Veronica Rossi is writing the best dystopian trilogy.

    1. It's definitely very interesting. Thank you. :D
