Authors I Love (and Why I Love Them)

Since school has started, my life has been hectic. So I thought I would make a list of some of my favorite authors and some of the reasons why they're my favorite authors. In no particular order, here they are-

1) David Levithan
I don't think I need to list a reason why he is amazing, he just is. *shout out to Khy here. David fans UNITE* In all seriousness, I love him because his books are incredibly poetic. He was one of the first authors who's writing inspired me to want to write.

2) Daisy Whitney
Daisy's book The Mockingbirds (Coming out November 2010) is brilliant and truthful and I love it. She is also one of the sweetest people I've ever met. I mean, you guys, she signed my BACKPACK. If that doesn't shout "awesome!" to you, I don't know what will.

3) Heidi R. Kling
#sealove is the best twitter hashtag in the universe. Heidi is fun to talk to and super nice. Her book SEA is amazing. It had traveling and DENI. *If you don't know who Deni is, you should read the book. Well, actually. You should just read the book period. It's lovely*

4)Hannah Moskowitz
Hannah is a role-model. I don't care if she drops the f-bomb like it's nobody's business. Her book Break is fantabulous and incredibly intense. She also has amazing hair. Oh, and I admit to stalking her blog. *hehe. It's because I love the way she writes.* I also like how she isn't afraid to be edgy.

5) Sarah Ockler
She is my hair twin! Sarah is so, so, so nice. When I was sick, she emailed and tweeted to me and asked if I was doing OK. Her first book Twenty Boy Summer came out last year, and it was one of my favorite books of the year.

6) Andrea Cremer
Andrea is my Soul Sistah! Her book Nightshade is made of amazing, just like her! I've re-read Nightshade more times than I can count. It comes out in October.

7) John Green
His books were the ones that convinced me to read Young Adult books. So he will always have a special place in my heart.

There are tons more authors I love. I just didn't have enough time to write them all down. I know I forgot a ton of authors and I'm sure that two hours after posting this I will be hitting myself in the head for forgetting people.
