Hello Hub readers!
Last month we explored some Nonfiction authors with works targeted at both Adult and YA readers, and Karen Blumenthal and her prolific backlist took a full 52% of the vote. Next up was Representative John Lewis with 27%, Sy Montgomery with 11%, Kenneth C. Davis with 6%, Jim Ottaviani with 5%, and Neal Bascomb.
With the never-ending deluge of awesome-sounding publications hitting the shelves, it can be overwhelming just to keep track of all the bookish excellence available (and, um, stressful to carve out reading time for even a fraction of the TBR pile), so this month, to help us all stay on top of our New Releases game and help boost some name recognition with new YA (series) authors-to-watch, we’re asking which YA series from a debut author is getting the Reader’s Advisory love from you so far in 2017. As always, please shout out titles and authors I’ve left out in the comments.
