It’s Women’s History Month and we’re thinking back to all the female authors that have inspired us!

 

Aurora:

“I probably talk about her too much, but Julie C. Dao really inspires me. She’s the only author I know that doesn’t force her characters to always be morally upstanding. It’s so realistic within the fantasy realm that she has broken out of standard YA trends. I truly applaud her for taking a risk with the darkness of her stories.”

Haley:

“Sarah J. Maas will forever be my author role model and writing inspirtation. She is so kind and down-to-earth. At the first singing of hers I attended she had readers sign a copy of her book. Also her books SLAY!”

Colleen:

“Sarah J. Maas hands down. I love every single one of her books. Her writing and characters are so unique and wonderful. She tackles modern problems in a fantasy setting and represents every person ever in her amazing, strong characters.”

Xander:

“J. K. Rowling and Harper Lee. They are both incredible writers. J.K. caused lots of people to become readers and really influenced so many people’s lives. Harper Lee wrote a stellar book that talked about issues at the time. She wrote for herself and didn’t really care about being famous.”

Gustavo:

“J.K. Rowling!”

Ivy:

“I am most inspired by Noelle Stevenson, creator of Lumberjanes and author of Nimona. She tells the stories that she wants to, and her writing/drawing is creative, witty, and beautiful.”

Maddy:

“Marie Lu inspires me. She writes books that are fresh and exciting. You can’t expect a happy ending but you won’t fail to get an amazing one. Even though LEGEND wasn’t my favorite, THE YOUNG ELITES can bring tears to my eyes, and WARCROSS a spike of electricity to my heart. As an added bonus, her characters are diverse and not walking tropes!”
