Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the topic is Top Ten Underrated Authors or Books in any given genre. I found this list really hard to complete so I thought I’d talk about ten underrated authors in a range of genres.

I have read two brilliant books by Alison Rattle. The Quietness and The Madness. Alison’s books fit into the historical/YA category. They’re so well written and evocative.
I read The Wrong Boy earlier this year and I was absolutely blown away. A beautiful book that’s so well written. If you’re interested in the Holocaust then definitely check out this little gem.
Here’s another historical/war story. Prisoner of Night and Fog was something different to anything else I’ve read in the genre. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Paula Daly is another author that I’ve read two brilliant thrillers from. These were Just What Kind Of Mother Are You and Keep Your Friends Close. I loved them both. They’re pieces of adult fiction, but definitely ones that young adults could enjoy as well.
Kate Karyus Quinn
Even though I know quite a few people that have read Another Little Piece and (Don’t You) Forget About Me, I’d love more people to read them. I realise that this author is very unique and her books can be a little confusing, but I LOVE them!
Bird is an absolutely beautiful book which I devoured. The writing is stunning. I don’t want to say too much about it. Just read it!
Another very unique middle grade read that I think should be read more widely.
Helen’s debut The Name On Your Wrist really impressed me and I can’t wait to read more from this talented young author!
I enjoyed Left Drowning but I absolutely adored Flat Out Love and I’m looking forward to reading Flat Out Matt and Flat Out Celeste too. I don’t often read New Adult, but I do like Jessica Park’s writing.
YOUNG ADULT FANTASY
The Bone Dragon is a beautiful book that I think a lot more people should be reading and talking about!
