    My favorite book is The Light of Asteria by Isaacs!
    Favorite author JKR

  1. I have to many authors that I love but right now I would have to choose Cassandra Clare. I like the way she writes because to tell each characters point of view. Some situation are better told by other characters other then the main character.

    There are tonnes, but I've narrowed it down to Maggie Stiefvater. As the characters in her books are just amazing and theres just something about the way she writes that makes you not want to put the book down!

    My favorite YA author is Simone Elkeles. I fell in love with her Perfect Chemistry series. I don't know how she does it, but Simone has a knack for writing stories that just makes your heart melt while reading them.

    "Friends don't menace friends with giant terrifying swords, okay?"

    Sarah Rees Brennan (Demon's Covenant)

    "You see, cuckoos are parasites. They lay their eggs in other birds' nests. When the egg hatches, the baby cuckoo pushes the other baby birds out of the nest. The poor parent birds work themselves to death trying to find enough food to feed the enormous cuckoo child who has murdered their babies and taken their places."
    "Enormous?" said Jace. "Did you just call me fat?"
    "It was an analogy."
    "I am not fat."

    Cassandra Clare (City of Ashes)

  1. I'd have to say Stephenie Meyer is my favorite. Her books got me reading again.

  1. My favourite YA author is JK Rowling I just love her books. She did such an amazing job with her world building and bringing her characters to life. I was so sad when I heard that it would end with book seven.

  1. (I posted in the other topic too.)

    Thank you SO much for doing this giveaway. The list of the books you are giving away are PRETTY AWESOME!

    My favorite YA author (I have two) are Richelle Mead and Maggie Stiefvater. They are both amazing, and unique with their stories.

    There is Richelle who just makes you feel like a real teenager (even if you're an adult). She pulls you into her exciting vampire world that is Vampire Academy.

    Then we have Maggie. Oh dearest, she makes you breathless with every word poetry word she writes. Her Wolves of Mercy Falls series is fantastic. She makes you ache and long for what her characters go through. I love it.

    my favorite author? oh god, they are so many D: But this year, my favorite is Meg Cabot, because her books are sexy, but the romance, the sexy time and the funny time are all together, and when you read her books, you laugh, you cry and you pray for the couple! It's really exciting!
