Hi All! Wonderful Writers is a weekly segment that comes out every Wednesday! Every week I spotlight and discuss one of my favorite authors, books by them, and talk about their writing styles and such. I hope you’ll enjoy. Feel free to participate as well by writing your own post and as always you are welcome to use the meme/pic if you’d like (just remember to credit me).

Why She’s A Wonderful Writer:

Mead is just awesome, not only is she from my home state (yay Michigan!), but her vibrant stories of the supernatural and paranormal are what make her books so interesting. I had the pleasure of meeting Mead in person when she was still in the process of writing the Vampire Academy series. She was super friendly, laid back, and eager to answer her fans questions. On the outside I played it cool, but on the inside I was completely nerding out since I was meeting one of my favorite authors face-to-face. I even got the opportunity to get a picture with her and she autographed some of my VA novels (which I’ll treasure forever).

Back to her writing, I was first introduced to Mead through the VA series, and I think what makes the series so unique is the whole vampires meets boarding school concept. Each novel in all of her series, literally draws you into these action-packed, romantic entanglement, drama-filled stories. I also enjoy the detail she puts into her writing and the variety of characters that really make the story come to life.

What is your favorite Richelle Mead book or series?
