The Hate U Give
Hope Nation: YA Authors Share Personal Moments of Inspiration

New book coming out:

On the Come Up

If you haven't read The Hate U Give please drop whatever it is that you are doing and read it.  Not only is it an important story and a perfectly zeitgiest but it is also a great read with wonderful characters that stay with you and full of so much heart and humor. Pay attention to her.

Erin Morganstern

Author of: 

The Night Circus
Flax-Golden Tales

New book coming out: ?

The Night Circus was one of the most unique books that I have ever.  Erin Morganstern's writing is a thing of beauty. I hope she writes more.


Jay Kristoff

Anna-Marie McLemore

Anna-Marie McLemore

Author of: 

When the Moon Was Ours

New book coming out:

Blanca & Roja
All Out: The No-Longer-Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the Ages
The Radical Element (A Tyranny of Petticoats, #2) 
Toil & Trouble: 16 Tales of Women & Witchcraft

Magical realism can be very hit or miss for me. Either I love it or I hate it so much that I spend weeks being mad.  There is no middle group.  Anna-Marie McLemore is firmly in the love category. I am still working on her backlog and look at what her 2018 is going to be like.  She is going to be the reigning queen of this genre for me for a long time to come.


Tiffany D. Jackson

Tiffany D. Jackson

Author of: 

Allegedly

New book coming out:

Monday's Not Coming
Let Me Hear a Rhyme

I am putting her on this list but I want it known that I am still mad at her for what she did to my feels with Allegedly. I may never trust again.


Kelly Barnhill

Kelly Barnhill

Author of: 

The Girl Who Drank the Moon
The Witch's Boy
Iron Hearted Violet
The Mostly True Story of Jack
Mrs. Sorensen and the Sasquatch
The Unlicensed Magician
Probably Still the Chosen One
Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories
 

New book coming out: ?

Any woman who comes up with a tiny dragon who thinks that he is perfectly enormous os alright by me.  The best part is that I have a huge backlog to get through.  This is good because she doesn't seem to have anything coming out in 2018.


Katheryn Ormsbee
