Authors from A to Z: K

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!

Julie Kagawa is one of the authors I followed on Twitter before I'd ever read her books. Her first series, The Iron Fey, was on my TBR, of course. Yet even without reading her books, I could tell that Kagawa was a cool lady so I have no regrets in stalking her tweets. And I have it on good authority (from someone named Myra. Anyone know her?) that Julie Kagawa is a BAMF. There was something about helping get a tour bus unstuck from the snow while barefoot? Awe. Some.

As for her books, The Iron King was the first faery book that I have ever loved (see why in my review here). I suggested it to my friends and they became rabid fans of hers as well, reading the entire series before I'd even realized they'd been bitten by the Kagawa bug. I also adored her latest fangtastic novel, The Immortal Rules (review here). And I absolutely CANNOT wait for her next book set in the Iron Fey world, The Lost Prince, which focuses on a minor character from the first series.

So not only is Kagawa an awesome person, but she is an awesome writer who writes awesome books and I just want to soak up all her awesomeness. So if you haven't read her books, I'm gonna wonder about you, and not in a good way. ^_^
