Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about?
An under-noticed author that definitely deserves more attention is Laura Whitcomb. She wrote one of my favorite YA novels: A Certain Slant of Light. It's a truly wonderful, moving tale full of suspense and romance sure to make you shed a tear or two by the end!
Summary taken from Goodreads:
Helen is a disembodied spirit who "attaches" herself to humans in order to possess their bodies. Unable to remember the circumstances of her death, and with no idea why she's in this precarious state of limbo, she knows this much: she's been haunting the living world for 130 years. But when Helen inhabits the body of a high school teacher, everything changes. For though he remains quite unaware of her presence, a certain boy in his class is clearly able to see Helen. This realization, and Helen's subsequent introduction to him, rocks her world. Uncomfortable with the boundaries of her existence, Helen continues to test them and takes hair-raising risks -- often for love. Moved by her passions, she is stymied by limits placed on her that she doesn't yet understand and is unable to control.
Book Blog Hop Question:
"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
The two things I look forward to reading the most on other people's book blogs are memes and book reviews. Memes are a great way to meet fellow bloggers and get to know them better. Book reviews are a great way to discuss books, get ideas to read new books, and find other bloggers who share similar tastes in books!
