Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish. Don't forget to stop by their blog :)
This week's topic: Authors who deserve more recognition. There are so many wonderful authors and you talk about them to people and they are like "who is that??" Or you read a book and you can't really find very many other reviews on other blogs. There are so many great authors out there and I am excited to read everyone else's choices for this topic, because maybe I will find some real gems.
1. Thomas Trofimuk. His books Waiting for Columbus was incredible. I recommend this book all the time and find myself thinking about it all the time even though I read it at least 3 (??) years ago. I remember how badly I wanted it when it first came out and I loved it and didn't want it to end and then there wasn't much talk of it in the blogosphere. Though I did first hear about it through a few blog posts :)
2. Cornelia Funke. So I mean I know she's probably relatively well known for younger readers, but her books are so much fun for adult readers too! A lot of her books have some darker qualities to them that an older reader appreciates more. I think more adults need to give her stuff a try.
3. Ellen Airgood. South of Superior totally took me by surprise when I read it. I thought it was going to be a fluffy light read, and I was so wrong. It hit some pretty deep chords and I can't believe more people aren't in love with it like I am.
4. Alison Croggon. She wrote one of my favorite series ever, the Books of Pellinor. I don't usually like fantasyish books about other worlds and magic and whatnot, but I loved these, and I connected instantly with the characters and the story and everything. Yet so many people haven't read the books! I think Croggon is super talented. She made up this whole world and it is so believable.
So what authors are on your list??
