Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Contemporary is my favorite genre, (along with Mystery and Action-Adventure), so I had a lot of fun listing My Top Ten Favorite Contemporary YA Authors.
1. Meg Cabot
Meg Cabot is the queen of fiction from her fabulous novels in the adult category to the Young Adult genre to children’s books!
2. Janette Rallison
Janette Rallison’s books are always so unique and hilarious! I have 6 of them proudly sitting on my shelf. You can see my review of Janette’s My Unfair Godmother here.
3. Ally Carter
I love Ally Carter’s Heist Society and Gallagher Girls series! See my review of I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You (GG #1) here.
4. Jessica Brody
Jessica Brody has such a fun, hilarious, totally amazing writing style! You can see my review of Jessica’s book 52 Reasons to Hate My Father here.
5. Lauren Myracle
The book pictured above Lauren Myracle actually co-authored with Sarah Mlynowski and E. Lockhart, but she also wrote many other great books like the adorable Luv Ya Bunches series!
6. Michele Jaffe
A friend of Meg Cabot, Michele Jaffe has such fun and awesome books!
7. Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Two words: Cheerleader Spies.
