Promote An Author: Is there a particular author you wish got more recognition? Pick one author & tell us why we should read their work
There are so many good authors out there. Most of the books I read are widely popular, but earlier this year I read Ballads of Suburbia
by Stephanie Kuenhert and it was Amazing! I will admit that I haven’t yet read I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone, but I plan on it.
Stephanie Kuenhert is not a light and fluffy author so her books aren’t for everyone, but Ballads of Suburbia was completely engaging. It amazes me that so few people have read it, and that it’s not at my local library. If you get the chance I encourage you to check out her books.

I didn’t like this cover at all. I can’t tell you how many times I walked by it at Target, with all the signs saying “check out this great book” and refused to even pick it up. Plus, it’s about a circus and I’m not really fond of circuses. I read it for book club and it was really good. And it’s about so much more than the circus. I loved the characters, their journey and especially Rose, the elephant.
