- Sarah Fine - as I'm sure you ALL know by now...her debut novel, Sanctum: Guards of the Shadowlands, blew me away. It's my favorite 2012 book...and she's my favorite new author :)
- John Green - I can't believe I've only been reading his books for less than a year. They are such classics in my mind, it seems like I've been reading him forever!
- Veronica Roth - yep...I'm a fan...
- Juli Alexander - I loved Stirring Up Trouble and can't wait to see what comes next from this author!
- Kieran Scott - her He's So/She's So trilogy is fantastic...write more...fast, please :)
- Miranda Kenneally - SO funny...love her...
- Sarah Dessen - I had to look at Goodreads to confirm I never read her books prior to 2012. I'm so lame!
- Jay Asher - I really liked Thirteen Reasons Why...need to read more from this author
- & 10. Kristin Hannah & Emily Giffin - enjoyed discovering their work, and look forward to reading more once I'm caught up (yeah...I know I'm dreaming!) on my TBR YA list :)
Who are YOU happy to know?! Honestly, I can't imagine my life without these 10 fantastically talented authors in it :) THANK YOU for your writing :):):)
