[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat can I say about authors? Hmm *thinks* They’re my type of celebrity. People follow the big movie stars, and find out what they wear, and watch all their videos, and probably even stand in line to buy TIFF tickets. But not for this book blogger. I follow the authors. I read their books. If I enjoyed one of their books, it’s safe to say, I’ll pick up every single one in the series and buy every single standalone they have.

I have been such a fan of Meg Cabot, and Sophie Kinsella. Their books are fun, and light, and downright hilarious. I would love to meet these two and just completely fan-girl over them.

Oh and you can’t forget about the ever popular, ever amazeballs Mrs. J.K. Rowling who has unleashed the book industry into a frenzy. Her books are perfect, flawless, and I will forever be a Harry Potter fan for life. Then there’s new authors such as Jeyn Roberts who have blind sided me by the clever action and
characters from her Dark Inside trilogy. Oh and did I mention she’s Canadian too?!

I also have to mention dear sweet Tahereh Mafi, who also debuted with her Shatter Me trilogy last year. Her writing is lyrical, almost journal-like, and creates one of the best love triangles to date. (I’m on Team Warner now..muahah)

Last, but not least, are the authors I think are just fabulous but are so completely underrated. D.J. MacHale has written the Pendragon series, and if I can compare any series to the Harry Potter series in terms of plot, and character development, then it’s his series. (Oh and Rick Riordan’s books too lol but he’s not underrated).

I won’t stop there because there are indie authors that I have to mention. These self-published authors need to be talked about to. There’s the Protector series by none other than fellow Canadian  M. R. Merrick. His books are so action packed that you are always dying for the next book. Secondly, there’s Michelle A. Hansenwho writes about a retelling between Eros and Psyche. What a beautiful love story to begin with, and I just hope she writes more.

Authors in short, are my celebrities.

I’m in awe of how they weave clever plot lines, include so many characters with such realistic portrayals of teenagers and adults, that I just want to hug them and quite possibly pick apart their brain.

It’s hard to write a book, it’s even harder to write a well-written book, so I can absolutely say, THANK you to all the authors who have slaved away at writing all these beautiful stories, so people like me can picture a world so much more different than our own reality.

    I am just like you. If I had the chance to go meet some of the hottest actors out there or the chance to meet just a handful of some of my favorite authors, I would absolutely with no hesitation pick the authors. They are the most amazing and talented people to me. I actually had the chance to go to Y’allfest this past weekend and actually meet some authors for the first time and it was amazing. I live in SC and not a lot of YA authors come around here. Not any really. But being able to meet them, I am now more than willing to make crazy drives for the chance to just say hi to more of my faves. They really are my celebrities. Thanks for this post, and again, congrats on a year!

    I totally agree, authors are amazing! I should check out the Pendragon and Protector series, I’ve never heard of either but based on how you described them they sound awesome.
    And I’m a huge Meg Cabot fan too! She’s one of the authors whose books made me love reading 🙂
