PopSugar featured 11 BookSparks authors in their best books of 2017 list, including The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot, It Happens All The Time by Amy Hatvany, and more!
USA Today’s Happy Ever After did a Q&A with Kes Trester, author of A Dangerous Year. Kes also shared a personal story about her life on Barnes and Nobles Teen Blog, “YA Open Mic” feature. A Dangerous Year also received a rave review from Fangirlish: “From the moment that I started this book, I couldn’t put it down and found myself finishing 3 hours later….The characters are memorable, fun, and fierce. But what drew me in was the dialogue. It was funny, sharp, and Lord, Kes is really witty.”
What an incredible week for BookSparks authors!
