Top Ten Tuesday: October 16th, 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week I get to choose my favorite authors in a specific genre...which for me is YA!

Mrs. Beamer's Top Ten YA authors (in no particular order):

  • Sarah Dessen (YA writing like I remember reading when I was a teen)
  • John Green (very interested to see how he evolves as a YA author)
  • Stephenie Meyer (the Twilight series brought me back to my first love...YA books!)
  • Suzanne Collins (Hunger Games cemented my love for all things dystopian)
  • James Patterson (yes, he writes YA books too!)
  • Gary Paulsen (my son's favorite...therefore one of mine!)
  • Scott Westerfeld
  • P.C. Cast ( now you know I'm a "series" nut!)
  • Melissa Marr
  • Judy Blume (a throw-back to my youth)


  1. Just thought you'd like to know: your link is broken over at The Broke and the Bookish, missing the dot between blogspot and com. :S I was able to figure it out.

    It's always nice to find another Meyer fan. And I love Sarah Dessen's writing, and thought Green's Looking for Alaska was a beautiful story. Good list! :)

  2. Hi Jenna! Thanks for helping with the link...I appreciate that :) Happy Reading!
