Author Appreciation #8

What's it about?
Author Appreciation is going to be a monthly blog posting on my blog to give a shout out to some of my favorite authors out there.
I think it's important to show just how awesome these authors are for writing all these amazing books out there for our enjoyment. For without them there would be no amazing books, and I would be writing a blog about noodle straining or something of that nature.

Author of the month: Cinda Williams Chima

Cinda Williams Chima is honestly one of my favorite authors as of last year when I met her at the RT Booklovers Convention last year. I was given a free copy of her book The Gray Wolf Throne (Seven Realms #3). I hadn't ever even heard of her and when I realized the book I had was book three I was like, well I need to go get one and two. I honestly fell in love with her writing, story telling, and just everything. Her writing is like nothing I have ever read before. I recently just finished The Crimson Crown, the fourth and final book in the Seven Realms series and knew I this month I had to dedicate to her since I loved that book and series so much.
