Top Ten Tuesday: Awesome Authors

September 9, 2014

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week features a book related topic that offers you the opportunity to spotlight your Top Ten.

Top Ten Nine Underrated Authors or Books in X genre
Hmm, this topic took some thinking on, on how I wanted to approach it.
I don't think an author is underrated when I find that they are awesome...and the same goes with books. So, I'm looking at this topic as authors who aren't spoken of as much in book circles, not underrated.
1. Stephanie Landsem
2. Melanie Dobson
3. Tracy Groot
4. Cliff Graham
5. Sigmund Brouwer
6. Carla Capshaw
7. Glenn Meade
8. Stephen Bly
9. Carla Stewart
I have found each of these authors has such an amazing gift for story telling. Each one can build a world and then some with their words make these characters real. I don't see them mentioned as much as others in book circles, but they are marvelous!

What is on your list today?


  1. This list has a lot of intriguing titles and I believe that I'll be picking up The Hatmaker's Heart and Chateau of Secrets before the year ends. Great list and thanks for the recommendations!

  2. I haven't read any of these, but some look really good, so I'll definitely check them out!
