Why I Love Wednesdays... Underrated Authors

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns Underrated Authors

Why I Love...Pam Jenoff and Jenna Blum

So I picked this topic and I'm not even sure what it means.  Do I pick an upcoming author?  Or an author that I love and just want to talk about?  Who can't I choose?  Can an author be underrated if they are published and sell books?  Oh the confusion.  I should think a little more before choosing these topics (I don't pick them be fair).  I don't exactly have a favorite author and I'm not sure I am in the know to pick an underrated author because I don't know who is highly rated.

Jenna Blum
So I pick Pam Jenoff and Jenna Blum.  These are two authors that I think everyone should be talking about because they are awesome at World War II novels.  I loved Pam Jenoff's Kommandant's Girl and The Diplomat's Wife.  I loved Jenna Blum's Those Who Saved Us.  I would read any World War II novel written by these two authors (I would read their others as well).

Pam Jenoff

I'm in awe of their ability to write about raw emotion, history, and love without making the book depressing.  These are the books that started me reading novels set during World War II and I'm so grateful for it.  Historical fiction wasn't even on my radar till then.  I love their writing style and appreciate the amazing stories they put out.

I'm not sure if they are underrated, but everyone should read them : )
