Book Blogger Hop: 7/30-8/2

July 30, 2010

It’s time for another hop and this week’s question is:

Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?

Oh, dear. I don’t like questions like this because I have found so many amazing authors who have written books that have haunted me (in a good way) for days/weeks after reading them. I don’t want to pick just one, so here’s a few authors:

-Jennifer Murgia (Angel Star)
-Kiersten White (Paranormalcy)
-Cynthia Roberts (Wind Warrior)
-Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss)
-Anastasia Hopcus (Shadow Hills)

There are a ton more authors I could name, but I don’t want to bore you all. What I love most about these authors, besides the fact that they’re amazing writers and extremely nice people, is that their characters are so real and loveable that I still am thinking about them! If you haven’t heard of them, please Google them and learn more about their writing!

To new hoppers, welcome to DJ’s Life in Fiction! I hope you enjoy looking around my site and don’t hesitate to leave a comment and become a follower! Happy hopping!

    I agree it’s hard to narrow down to one. I haven’t read Paranormalcy yet, but I am looking forward to it. Anastasia Hopcus is wonderful – I loved Shadow Hills.

    Hopping by, my post is here.

    Most of the books I review are new to me so it is hard to narrow it down – until the end of the year! Stopping by from the blog hop.
