Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish blog. This week’s theme is Top Ten Underrated Books or Authors in X genre. For the genre, I choose fantasy (although some of these books are historical fantasy)! I am organizing by author, then listing all the books I have read by them (note when I say “author of” that they have often written many more books). Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel and Court Duel, along with Maria V. Snyder, author of the Poison Study trilogy and many others, go without saying.

9.) Monica Furlong, author of Juniper and Wise Child
8.) Martine Leavitt, author of Keturah and Lord Death
7.) Patricia C. Wrede, author of Sorcery & Cecilia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot, and the Enchanted Forest Chronicles
