TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by the ultra-fab Ginger over at G-Reads! Seriously check her out if you haven't already, she pretty much rocks!
This weeks question: Author love: In 2011 which new/old authors have you discovered & loved?
EASY! I've had the opportunity to meet and read from a whole ton of amazing authors so far this year but one stands out far above the crowd.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present: Elizabeth Scott.
The Unwritten Rule. I liked the cover. It's a YA Contemporary and I was like...Hmm....this book is going to be seriously limited on werewolves... but still, I tried it. And loved it. She really seemed to write to my life so I thought, what the heck. I'll get another of her books. I picked up Bloom. I loved it like Whoa. Seriously. So then I thought, third times a charm right? I went out and got Grace. AHHHH. Whether is swoon or oppression Elizabeth Scott can captivate me in the strongest way. Now I'm reading Something, Maybe and hey - here's a shocker - I freaking love it.
She has a unique writing style that makes it so easy to read I have to wonder sometimes if I'm actually reading someone elses words or if there's just a really good conversation going on in my head. You will lose yourself to her story. I can relate to characters/situations/feelings in her books even if it's not something I've personally gone through...but a lot of times there's a lot of that real life stuff in her books that are WAY relatable.
It's not just me either, tooooons of people love her. Heck there was just a whole Elizabeth Scott week!! I hope that got the word out to people who like me were ignorant to her work. She is truly talented and has so many great stories to tell! I can always count on her for a good read!
