Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Authors who Deserve More Recognition

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over there at The Broke and the Bookish. I'd love to share my lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

I love the theme this week, such a great idea! There are some amazing authors out there who write some great novels but don't get the kind of mainstream recognition that they deserve. So here goes my top ten of them...

1. Nicola May. This is a fabulous author (see my previous interview with her) my favourite of get novels is definitely The School Gates-if you haven't read this you need to now!

2. Linda Green. This author has written some really great novels. Her latest novel The Mummyfesto was thoraghlu entertaining and thought provoking in equal measure!

3. Kirsty Greenwood. Her debut novel Yours Truly was awesomely funny and is just about to come out in paperback-let's give it some love!

4. Emma Garcia. I loved Never Google Heartbreak (you can tell from my review) and yet I meet so many people who haven't read it! Definitely one to watch!

5. Sophie Hart. Her debut novel The Naughty Girls Book Club was BRILLIANT-this lady needs some more recognition for such a fab debut!

6. Dana Bate. The Secret Supper Club has to be one of the best books I've read this year, she definitely needs some more recognition as a fabulous author.

7. Holly Smale. Everyone has heard of Geek Girl but no one seems to realise what a fab message it is sending out to young girls (and boys) plus it has no swearing in it which makes it amazing for use in schools!
8. Lucy Robinson. I think this author is truly underrated and yet she has the ability to create truly shaggable male characters and make you guffaw with laughter at the same time! Buy her books now!
9. Alice Peterson. I love love loved Monday To Friday Man-such a fab novel and her new novel By My Side features a disable heroine-this author is brave and funny all rolled together. Definitely a hidden gem!
10. Kitty Charles. I know that this isn't one author, but a group of authors, but really The Arcade is a monthly MUST READ! So many people haven't discovered this monthly serial but it's a soap opera on every page! You should definitely give this one some more recognition!


  1. Great list! This is actually the first that I've heard of most of those authors. I really love your blog's background. :D

  2. I haven't heard of any of these authors, so I'll be looking into them for sure! :) Following you on GFC now.

    My TTT:


    1. Thanks for the follow, and glad you've discovered some new authors now! I'll check out your list just now...

  3. What an awesome list, I have heard of some of these writers but not read them. That's going to change right now :)
