Hello everybody! It is time for my very first Listify Tuesday. Today’s topic is my Favorite Female Authors. I’d like to remind you that after I get this series started, if you’d like to send in your lift of top 5 anything, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll try to get you in. So without any further hesitation, let’s get into it.
1. Jenny Han
American author of the teen books To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, Summer trilogy, co-author of the Burn for Burn series and children books. Born in Richmond, Virginia, Jenny graduated from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and now resides in Brooklyn, New York.
I love Jenny Han because her writing is perfect for her target audience. She really involves the audience in her characters and what is going on with them. Her books are also very diverse. So many of her books have an Asian-American character which is a nationality you don’t often see in Young Adult fiction. She also focuses a lot on family aspects as well as romance. This can be seen in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Summer I Turned Pretty.
2. Raye Wagner
Living in middle Tennessee, Raye lives with her husband and three children. She is the author of her debut novel and series, The Curse of the Sphinx.
I like Raye Wagner first of all because she’s so down to earth. First meeting her through Instagram, she instantly offered me the free e-book of her first book, The Curse of the Sphinx, and I fell in love with it. Her writing is so informative about the Greek myth culture that you learn so much while enjoying the fiction. You can tell how much she has learned. Like Jenny, Raye writes for her characters and audience.
3. Maggie Stiefvater
Living in Shenandoah Valley, Virginia with her husband, two children, and lots of animals, Maggie has had a lot of jobs and is still doing things other than just an artist, like being an artist. Maggie is the author of The Raven Cycle series, The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, The Scorpio Races, and other books.
I love Maggie Stiefvater because she’s creative. The two serious of hers that I’ve read have both taken me to a new world that I want to delve so deep into. The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy and The Raven Cycle are so vivid that I feel like I’ve watched a movie in my mind; I really want them to be adapted.
4. Veronica Roth
Born in New York City, Veronica Roth now lives in a Chicago suburb with her husband. After attending Carelton College and them moving to Northwestern University she graduated from their Creative Writing program. Winning many awards, Veronica Roth has her debut series adapted into movies.
Although I have only ready the Divergent trilogy of hers, I still loved that trilogy and her writing in it. Some people don’t like the last two books, I was captivated in the first and was so excited to see what the last two were about. Tugging at every string in my heart, Veronica took a form of dystopia that was very familiar and took it to a different level. Being creative really paid off.
5. Rainbow Rowell
Author of Eleanor & Park, Landline, Fangirl, and many other well loved books. In both Adult and Young Adult, Rainbow Rowell rights books for seemingly everyone who likes romance. She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two kids at 43 years old.
Rainbow Rowell’s writing is simply cute and complicated. Although I have only read one of her books, she seems to give background to every one of her characters. You love them or you hate them or become annoyed with them because of their complexity. She gives a story so perplex that I just had to love the the thought that was put into it.
That’s all I have for you for this first edition! This order is now specific order, I just want to put light onto female authors that I adore. If there’s any bookish topics you want me to see on here, just leave them in the comments (: – Kambria, see ya next time!
