5. Sarah J Maas
I read "A Court of Thorns and Roses" from her and absolutely loved it. Now I have zero intentions of reading her "Throne of Glass" series because of all the hype, but my book blogger friend here on campus really likes it, so I just might cave in...
4. George Orwell
I read "1984" for my AP Literature class and absolutely loved it. The man is a dystopian genius.

I have really enjoyed her Shadow Falls:After Dark series despite having problems with the main love interests and that whole bonding bullshit. Her writing is nothing special, but I don't know, something about teen paranormal romance gets to me.
2. Aldous Huxley
Similar to Orwell, I read "Brave New World" in AP Literature and loved it. I loved his book more than "1984" because it had a very different view on society and the future and I just really enjoyed his writing.

I read her debut novel "Naked" and absolutely loved it. It is by far one of my favorite books of the year. It was so special and the message behind it was incredibly powerful.
