This week’s topic is Top Ten Underrated Authors or Books in the YA genre! Since I was able to choose between authors and books, I decided to do 5 books and 5 authors.
Here are…the 5 authors!
1. Tamora Pierce
To my knowledge I have read every book that she has written. Not only have I read all of her books, but I have loved all of her books! If you have never read her books and like fantasy, you NEED to read them!
2. Robin LaFevers
I loved Grave Mercy and am really surprised that not many people have heard about this book! She is an amazing author and her descriptions are perfect!
3. Ridley Pearson
His books might be better classified as MG (middle grade), but I still think that he deserves a mention!
4. Alex Flinn
If you like modern day fairytales and haven’t read any of her books, you’re crazy!
5. Rachel Hawkins
Again, some people might classify the Hex Hall series as MG, but I think that the series borders on YA.
Here are…the 5 books!
1. Playing With The Boys
You might recognize this book from the previous week’s TTT. There is a reason for that! This book isn’t popular, but it really should be.
2. Carpe Diem by Autumn Cornwell
Ditto goes for this book!
3. Illuminate by Aimee Agresti
I loved this book and was very surprised that it didn’t become popular and instead became underrated.
4. A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty
When I was younger, I loved this book called The Spell Book of Listen Taylor. Later on, I picked up this book without realizing that it was the same author!
5. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
Again, this is another book that I thought was going to become extremely popular but didn’t.
So there you have it everyone! Listed above are 5 authors + 5 books that I feel are definitely underrated.
Do you agree with me? Who would you pick? Let me know in the comments below!
