Author websites that I love:
One of my amazing Critique Partners...be sure to check out her blog! She does lots of giveaways!
One of my favorite YA authors. If you're a fan of historical fantasy, you must read her Gemma Doyle Trilogy.
A great YA author - I haven't read all of her books, but I'm a big fan of her Mediator series.
The Luxe Series
Anna Godbersen's The Luxe series is straight historical YA that are great reads.
Not YA, but I'm just a huge fan of this author; I think she writes some of the best historical fiction out there.
