The answer to this question will always be J.K. Rowling. That being said, I do enjoy a variety of books. Right now my favorite author(s) are Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I downloaded a copy of the audio book Illuminae and fell in love. I’m about halfway through Gemina now and I can’t seem to stop listening to it. The format of the novels are a bit different from any that I’ve read before but I am absolutely loving it!

My favorite YA author is Sarah J Maas. I love her Throne of Glass series. I also like Cassandra Clare and her series The Mortal Instruments.

I guess J.K. Rowling given how much I love Harry Potter. But I dunno if thats necessarily YA - books 1-3 definitely feel more like Children's books. But I guess her. I'm not a fan of most other books for YA like Hunger Games, etc.
Hi all. I like board games, card games, video games, books (especially children's books and mysteries), stories, cartoons, anime, manga, light novels, animation, and other light-hearted, fun things. Feel free to message if you want to chat!

My favourite is Jenny Han. I loved all her books and I can relate to her characters very well. And also Amy Zhang because we literally are book twins!

I have 2 favorites... Ernest Cline of Ready Player One fame is my favorite. I also really like Jay Asher's 13 Reasons Why. I've been a fan of the book long before Netflix made a series of it. Both are incredible ]with lots of emotional depth and great storytelling.

That's hard, there are a lot of good YA authors out there. But I think Josephine Angelini is my favorite. Her Starcrossed Trilogy was really REALLY amazing, I need to get my hands on the Worldwalker series next.
Josephine is also really cool herself, she interacts with her readers quite frequently on twitter and her blog. :techie-studyingbrown:

Suzanne Collins. The hunger games trilogy was dark, intense and captivating. I couldn't put the books down and I read and reread them over and over again.

There are so many great young-adult authors in the recent years that I find it hard to choose. I really love Cassandra Clare. The Shadowhunters books and spin offs are one of my favorite series of books.

However, after readind The Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, I may have changed my mind. I think that she genuinely captures the interests of my imagination through her characters in ways that I find extremely relatable to every day life.

So I am a fan of both!

My favorite Young Adult author has to be Kiera Cass. I absolutely love the Selection Series and I think it was interesting how she changed the setting of the book when America has a child. The rules change and it is interesting to see both the contestant and picker side of the Selection. She is an amazing and talented writer.

I love Rainbow Rowell. Eleanor and Park slayed me and Fangirl was so much fun. I resisted reading Carry on Simon but it may have been my favorite of all.

My daughter and I love to read Jacqueline Wilson. "The Story of Tracy Beaker" and "Hetty Feather" are some of her best known works.

I must say J.K Rownling since I am a Harry Potter fan. As for other authors I also like Gayle Forman, Kiera Cass, Ransom Riggs and Madeleine Roux.
