Top Ten Tuesday: KidLit Authors I Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To

This week’s prompt is Top Ten Authors I Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To! In no particular order, I’m sharing the Kidlit authors on the top of my TBR list:

  1. Alex Gino
  2. Chris Grabenstein
  3. Erin Hunter: Although animal fantasy is not my personal jam, I feel like I should read at least one Erin Hunter title so I understand better what kids love about these books.
  4. Jeff Kinney: And speaking of popular authors I’ve never read…
  5. Jarett Lerner
  6. Kate Messner: I recommend the Ranger in Time and History Smashers series to kids ALL THE TIME, how have I never read them myself?
  7. Lincoln Peirce
  8. Madeline L’Engle: …can I still call myself a children’s librarian if I’ve never read A Wrinkle in Time?
  9. Renée Watson
  10. Varian Johnson: I’m really looking forward to reading Twins for Bricks and Books Club!
