Author Appreciation Week, Co-authors Heather Hepler and Brad Barkley
Ok so it's my turn with author appreciation, and I am terrible at picking favorites. But this time it was easier since my mom has already done J.K. Rowling and Amy already mentioned Suzanne Collins (I can't decide if I like The Hunger Games, Scrambled Eggs at Midnight, or Dream Factory better).
Technically Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler are two authors, but my favorite books by them are the ones they wrote together (Scrambled Eggs at Midnight and Dream Factory (see Andye's review), I haven't gotten to Jars of Glass yet.) And although they have given me completely unrealistic expectations for guys, they are amazing. Their writing is very unique (which is not meant to be a complinsult) and they alternate each chapter between Eliot and Cal (in Scrambled Eggs at Midnight) and Ella and Luke ( in Dream Factory) and I actually laughed (out loud) while reading them. I got a lot of weird looks from the people at the coffee shop (which was unfortunately not named Cool Beans.)
Thank you Heather and Brad for your cute, funny, quirky, adorable, charming, delightful, captivating, unique, laugh out loud, hilarious books!
