Week Four of OUR Favorites, Day One:Favorite Authors- Emlyn Chand+ Ellen Oh's Prophecy/Warrior & Sarwat Chadda's The Savage Fortress/The City of Death giveaway!

 Wow!!! I can't believe we're already on our FINAL week of favorites. This event was super fun and quite honestly, while it was just an experiment, we may just find ourselves doing this every year! Events are soooo fun and such a great way to incorporate your love for books without it feeling like work!Gotta say, Events are such a fun way to promote posts!

Anyways, where were we? Oh yes! Week four of our FAVORITES! This week is super special because it features none other than our favorite authors of this year!

Now our first favorite is an author, by the name of Emlyn Chand .
 Her books give me astounding faith in the world of Independent Publishing. When we reviewers say that we're looking for those "gems" when it comes to Independently Published works, this my dear is one of them! 

You couldn't tell any of her books we're self published just by looking at them and that's the point! 
Emlyn Chand has managed to do what a lot of traditionally published series have failed to do, and that's make a series that centers on MAIN characters of marginalized groups.

 Now there are plenty of series in the traditionally published series that I love and brag about, but none like this!

Emlyn Chand has managed to make a disabled main character desirable in a way i haven't yet seen before in YA books, but shes also expanded on that by centering on a South Asian lead character for her second book in the series AND GET THIS...her next titles release "Pitch" will be from the voice of my favorite character in the series, Shapri!Check out that sick cover up above for it!
  Isn't that sick?

If you have completely lost faith in Independently published books, don't fret!This series will completely restore your faith!Do yourself a favor, Check out this series and not only that,
Check out this author!
