Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted a review yet this week-- I've been painting my room and working all week! There was also some family drama mixed in there, but that's beside the point. Today, I just wanted to have a post thanking all of the awesome authors out there.

I want to thank every author out there, published or unpublished. Most of all, I want to thank YA authors. Thank you for everything you write. Thank you for everything you've done for me, personally. You've all been so nice every time I send you an e-mail or a comment on your blog. You have no idea how much this means to me. This blog was inspired because of you. Without you, there would be no books to review, no words to say.

Books have become my life and I'm not ashamed to admit it. A lot of people don't understand the power of reading. I didn't even understand it until I was in 7th grade. I used to hate reading. Yeah, I said it. I HATED to read when I was younger. But that all changed once I found A Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin. I realized reading could be fun and meaningful. I have to blame Sarah Dessen for my obession, though. Her book, Just Listen, was the first book that made me need more. I needed to read more of her books and I loved every single one of them.

So, the bottom line is, thank you. If any of you authors are out there reading this, just know that I will always appreciate you. I also want to give a special shout out to some authors that have gone above and beyond the kindness that I ever expected. These are some of the authors that have inspired me to become an author myself. Susane Colasanti, Elizabeth Scott, Elizabeth Eulberg, Eileen Cook, and Deb Caletti have all shown me how caring they are about their readers. Thank you guys for being such amazing people! I wish all the best for you in your careers!

Hey all you readers! Here's a chance for you to say whatever you like about your favorite authors! Go ahead and post a comment shouting out to YOUR favorite author(s). You never know when they'll see it! :)


  1. This post is the sweetest! :D

  2. Great post! And to the authors reading...
    YOU GUYS ROCK. Without we'd have nothing to read... and that would be a sad, sad world. So thank you!

  3. Awesome! I love this post!

    To Sarah Dessen and Elizabeth Scott, your books have changed my life! I love you!!!!!


  4. Ann M. Martin's book, A Corner of the Universe shaped my life, also.

  5. authors i luvvvv ur books keep riting k

  6. oh! I loved a corner of the universe! There are so many great authors out there, they all deserve the thanks.

  7. Great post! I see we pretty much like the same authors which is awesome of course. ;)

    When I found YA it's like a light was switched in my head. I went from being an occasional reader to completely immersing myself in books. It's so true that many people don't know the power of the written word.

    The three novels that changed things for me were The Scribbler Of Dreams by Mary E. Pearson, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, and of course The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I couldn't believe how much I'd been missing out once I discovered these authors and their work.


Comments anyone?
