Authors from A to Z: A

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!

Not only did R.J. Anderson write an amazing novel called Ultraviolet (my review here), but she is also super sweet. After reading Ultraviolet, which in a nutshell is a beautiful and thought-provoking story with a twist, I was so infused with awe that I wrote her an email.
It was the first time I'd ever done that. And she emailed me back.
It was amazing and made my day.

I am now eagerly awaiting the sequel to Ultraviolet, called Quicksilver, which isn't due out until 2013. If you haven't read anything by Anderson yet, I highly recommend Ultraviolet. If you are into things more faery, she also has a series called Faery Rebels (that begins with the novel Knife) and another series that begins with Swift.

  1. Ultraviolet sounds good! I'll have to see if our library has that one! I have read her Faery Rebels books thus far, although I read Spell Hunter (the first one) and Wayfarer (the second). Both were fantastic. I asked her about the titles, and apparently Knife and Swift are the UK titles, and the titles I read (while the same books) are the U.S. titles. I wonder if that's changed, though, as I noticed the final book is just called Arrow! Anyway, excellent choice for A! :-)


Thank you for reading!
