Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.
This week is Top Ten Tuesday Freebie.
This is probably the hardest list EVER. I mean, how am I supposed to pick not only a top ten, but the subject for that? Eek. So I have decided upon...
TOP TEN UKYA AUTHORS
Now, I love UKYA. It is my longest book-lover, my one true bookish love, my novel-soul-mate. UKYA is what properly got me into reading, it's what's kept me reading, it's my addiction. The majority of the books I read each year are UKYA.
And now I think I should explain a little.
Simply put, UKYA is United Kingdom Young Adult. Looking a bit deeper is does have a few different definitions. Some are that it has to be a UK-born author, writing stories set in the UK while living themselves in the UK. For me, as long as the book was written by an author who currently resides in the UK then it counts. I'm not fussy. It's all awesome.
UKYA has it's very own feel, a certain tone to it that when you pick up the book for the first time and start reading, you just know. You know it's UKYA. And yet the books themselves are all so very different. So, here are my Top Ten UKYA Authors, the ones I read again and again
