Book Kaleidoscope 2013: Top Five New Favorite Authors

image source: here. edited by me.
So today is Day 4 of Book Kaleidoscope 2013 hosted by Fanda @ Fanda Classiclit, and this time we are free to choose our own criteria. I was actually quite confused, and so I blog-walked through some of the bloggers who have joined in this event. I decided to list the Top 5 New Favorite Authors this month. They don't have to be a completely new author who just debuted, but it's the first time for me to read these authors' books. If they released a new book, I'll be sure to quickly grab it :)) So here's my list of new favorite authors from 2013 :))
David Levithan
David Levithan (born 1972) is an American children's book editor and award-winning author. He published his first YA book, Boy Meets Boy, in 2003. Levithan is also the founding editor of PUSH, a Young Adult imprint of Scholastic Press. Amanda Inez

John Green

In January 2012, his most recent novel, The Fault in Our Stars, was met with wide critical acclaim, unprecedented in Green's career. The praise included rave reviews in Time Magazine and The New York Times, on NPR, and from award-winning author Markus Zusak. The book also topped the New York Times Children's Paperback Bestseller list for several weeks. Green has also coauthored a book with David Levithan called Will Grayson, Will Grayson, published in 2010.
