Mo Willems is my favorite modern writer of kid's books. His stories and characters are charming and funny and kids love them.
Check out the pigeon books! This one, Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late is quite charming.
For Middle Grade Readers:
My niece has been reading the Fairyland series and loves it. It looks fantastic (I mean I'm tempted to get copies for myself.) Start with The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.
I'm going to throw in a classic here too: The Phantom Tollbooth. I love wordplay!
Of course most of my recommendations will be romance.
For Upper YA/NA:
I've only read the first two books in Keira Cass's Selection Series so far, but I'll be reading the rest soon.
Got a teen who like's a supernatural twist? I love Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers Trilogy.
For Lovers of Sweet Paranormal Romance:
I think this series is categorized as NA, but it is absolutely appropriate for teens and adults alike. The Elsker Saga by S.T. Bende
For Someone Who Loves Holiday-Themed Romantic Comedies:
Gina Henning's Home for the Holidays series.
For The Paranormal Fan Looking for Something Different:
The Darkness Saga by Kat Daemon--you'll be charmed by the devil himself.
The Phasms series by Barbara Garren--like nothing else you've read.
For The Romance Reader Looking for The Next Nora Roberts:
Anything by Sophie Moss. She's a wonderful storyteller.
For Someone Who Likes Their Romance Hot:
Hot vampires: Cherry Stem by Sotia Lazu
Contemporary Sexy: Firsts by Rosalie Stanton
For Someone Looking For Something Other Than Romance:
Yes Please by Amy Poehler- I especially recommend the audio version.
For Someone Who Wants to Read One Of My Books:
Okay-this is not a real category, but if you're looking for a romance with comedy and just a splash of steam, my stuff might fit the bill.
Here is my Amazon Page, but my books (and most if not all of the others here) are also available from Barnes & Noble and other book retailers.
The Books on my Christmas Wish List:
Prince Lestat: The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice
Not Quite Darcy by Terri Meeker
Night Broken by Patricia Briggs
Deep Dark Secret by Sierra Dean
Time Out Valentine by Melinda Dozier
Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Happy reading and happy shopping!
