Hey Wishers!

Today I’m talking about some of my favorite authors. From YA contemporary to sci-fi, these are the voices that really stand out and inspire me:

Morgan Matson


Author of: Second Chance Summer, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, Since You’ve Been Gone, The Unexpected Everything.

Marissa Meyer


Author of: The Lunar Chronicles series: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter. Her upcoming book, Heartless, comes out November 8th.

My Favorite Book: Cress

What Makes Their Writing Stand Out: The creativity! Her world in the Lunar Chronicles is so creative and interesting, and the way she binds all the fairytales together is amazing.

Have I Met Them? No, unfortunately not. But she is a part of the Fierce Reads Fall Tour, so I’m hoping to meet her then!

Lauren Oliver


Author of: Delirium trilogy, Before I Fall, Panic, Vanishing Girls, and Rooms

My Favorite Book: Before I Fall and Pandemonium

Danielle Paige

Author of: The Vampire Academy series, Bloodlines series, Soundless, The Glittering Court
