Sunday Salon: Authors from A to Z

It’s been forever and a year since I’ve done a Weekly Geeks, but this one, on this Easter Sunday (Happy Easter! I hope you’re enjoying the day.), sounded right up my alley. It’s a list of authors — whatever category you choose — in ABC order.

I’m picking my favorites (with the book I really liked) from the past few years:

A – Kathi Appelt (Keeper)
B – Sarah Rees Brennan (The Demon’s Lexicon/The Demon’s Covenant)
C – Susan Cooper (The Dark is Rising series)
D – Frances O’Roark Dowell (Falling Up, among others)
E – Stephen Edmond (Happyface)
F – Catherine Fisher (Incarceron/Sapphique)
G – Neil Gaiman (Neverwhere)
H – Shannon Hale (Forest Born)
I – Eva Ibbotson (A Song for Summer)
J – Diana Wynne Jones (Howl’s Moving Castle)
K – Steve Kluger (My Most Excellent Year)
L – Grace Lin (Where the Mountain Meets the Moon)
M – Hilary McKay (Wishing for Tomorrow)
N – An Na (A Step from Heaven)
O – Anne Osterlund (Exile)
P – Terry Pratchett (I Shall Wear Midnight)
Q –
R – Rick Riordan (The Lost Hero)
S – Francisco X. Stork (Marcelo in the Real World)
T – Megan Whalen Turner (A Conspiracy of Kings)
U –
V – Claire Vanderpool (Moon Over Manifest)
W – Scott Westerfeld (Leviathan)
X –
Y – Lisa Yee (Bobby the Brave)
Z –

I’m only missing four letters in the past two years; not bad. What are some of your favorites?

  1. Awesome post. That reads like a true TBR list for me. I have read only one of the books but many of the authors. I see a great Sunday afternoon activity ahead when I can come up with my own list….thanks for sharing!

    Enjoy Easter peace and blessings


  2. Just stumbled across your blog, and as a long-time middle grade/YA fiction fan & school librarian-in-training, I'm thrilled to find a kindred spirit!

    Loved several on your A-Z list. I think you meant Incarceron and Sapphique, by Catherine Fisher, though. I bet it was spellcheck (my arch-nemesis!) that changed them to Inception and Sapphire.

    I look forward to reading more great posts in future!
