Author Recognition


TGIF is a bookish meme hosted by the fantastic Ginger at GReads! in which she asks a bookish question for us to discuss. Not only do I think Ginger is totally rad, but I happen to be a pretty big fan of this meme as well. That, my friends, is what we call a win-win. 

This week, Ginger asks:
Promote An Author: Is there a particular author you wish got more recognition? Pick one author & tell us why we should read their work. 

If you don't know my answer, you don't know me at all. 

PATRICK NESS, Y'ALL.

He wrote my favorite dystopian series and arguably my favorite series (behind Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter) and is kind of a genius. You should read his work because his characters are realistic and complex and emotional and the stories are crazy original and make you think.

You can see my reviews of his books at the following links:

Find out more about the man, the myth, the legend Patrick Ness at his blog. 

Who is an author that you unabashedly fangirl over? 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. I swear to you that I was thinking Patrick Ness as your page loaded for me, hahaha. I have the entire Chaos Walking trilogy, and plan to read it soon. :)

    Seriously, I've been forcing The Knife of Never Letting Go into the hands of every reader I know!

  3. I loved A Monster Calls, and I know I'll love the Chaos Walking trilogy. Why is it taking me so long to get to The Knife of Never Letting Go? I'm not sure, but I could kick myself.

  5. I think I may be the only person who picked a non-fiction author. Who is nerding now? ;-)
