Authors from A to Z: B

Authors from A to ZAuthors from A to Z is a posting challenge hosted by
Heather at Proud Book Nerd. The challenge is simple: each day for the month of June (except Sundays) share your favorite authors whose last name corresponds to the letter for that day.

How I'm participating in the challenge:
This year I am going to try to highlight just one author each day that I am really taken with. If I can't come up with one, it may be a book, a song, or a surprise!

Many YA readers probably know Barnes from her popular Raised by Wolves series. Seeing that it took me a while to consider reading books involving werewolves, the book that put me on the Barnes bandwagon was Every Other Day (my review here). I absolutely loved the intense story and all the crazy goings-on and the insane cast of creatures that make life for the protagonist so dangerous.

Because of Every Other Day, I now have Raised by Wolves in my TBR pile. And while I admire Barnes for her books (and she has several published) I also admire her because she just finished getting her PhD and is officially Dr. Barnes. How cool is that?!

  1. I had no idea about her PhD! That is so cool! I have not read Every Other Day yet, but fully intend to. I loved Raised by Wolves and need to finish the series already! (Where is the time? LOL)

    Excellent choice for B! :-)


Thank you for reading!
