Known for spinning tales of ancient mythology coexisting in the modern world, and young heroes navigating the space between two worlds, Rick Riordan is considered to be one of the best fantasy authors of this day.
Alice Oseman is one of my current all-time Young-Adult authors. Her books Solitare and Radio Silence explore the real, existential struggles of millennial characters with wit and respect, never downplaying their truths or heartaches.
In honor of Pride Month, no LGBTQ+ reader should go without at least having heard of Adam Silvera. Best-selling author of More Happy Than Not and History is All You Left Me, Adam Silvera writes heartbreakingly beautiful queer books for teens and adults.
Sarah Rees Brennan, New York Times Bestselling author of the Lynburn Legacy series and other popular young-adult series, is one fantasy author you have to read.
