S4S – Authors that surprised you

Hello! Happy Sunday all!

How are we all today? What is going on in your Sunday life? Engaging in a little #SixforSunday I hope!

Today’s prompt for #SixforSunday is:

Authors that surprised you

Now, I’m not entirely sure what I meant with this, so it’s interesting to see what everyone else is saying… I’ll give a little explanation for each on

  1. Deirdre Sullivan – her books are dark and tough going, but so incredibly brilliant! Not what I was expecting at all!
  2. Leigh Bardugo – man, I love her books so much. I wasn’t expecting to love them as much (despite the fact ALL MY FRIENDS said I’d love them!)
  3. Stewart Foster – his books are brilliantly meaningful and not just to kids, but to adults too. I love his books a lot.
  4. Sylvia Bishop – I fell for her writing within the first sentence of The Bookshop Girl and they continue to be wonderful as they go on.
  5. Alex Bell – she can write YA and MG and do both incredibly brilliantly, now there’s a skill to surprise me!
  6. Alice Oseman – a bit like Leigh Bardugo, everyone told me I’d enjoy the books, but I didn’t expect to be quite so blown away by Alice’s books as I always am.

And there we go! 6 authors who surprised me. I can’t wait to see everyone else’s answers to see how they’ve interpreted the prompt!
