Kiersten White's picture

Kiersten White

USA flag

A stay-at-home mom to two rather adorable young children, Kiersten has a lot of time to daydream between running errands, writing freelance articles, and supervising playground acrobatics. Needing a new hobby, she decided to put her BA in English to use and type out some of the stories constantly playing in her mind. Much to her surprise and delight, writing books was even more entertaining than reading them - and took longer, too.

When not chained to her computer in a fit of creativity, Kiersten maintains a humorous blog, reads anything she can get her hands on, and occasionally cleans her apartment. Emphasis on occasionally.

Kiersten White recommends
Across the Universe (2011)
(Across the Universe, book 1)
Beth Revis
"A horrifying and deliciously claustrophobic masterpiece that's part sci-fi, part dystopian, and entirely brilliant."
I Become Shadow (2014)
Joe Shine
"A fast, funny, sharp debut."
Caraval (2017)
(Caraval, book 1)
Stephanie Garber
"In a book where nothing is at it appears, one thing is certain: CARAVAL is the darkly enchanting adventure you've been looking for!"
Little & Lion (2017)
Brandy Colbert
"Brandy Colbert further establishes herself as one of contemporary YA's biggest talents in this thoughtful and thought-provoking examination of identity, loyalty, and what it means to live with integrity. Little & Lion is a stunningly good novel."
Mask of Shadows (2017)
(Mask of Shadows, book 1)
Linsey Miller
"An intriguing world and a fantastically compelling main character make for a can't-miss debut. Miller's Mask of Shadows will make you glad you're not an assassin - and even gladder Sal is."
A Line in the Dark (2017)
Malinda Lo
"Malinda Lo's A Line in the Dark is soaked in menace. Each page in this brilliant thriller is deliciously unsettling - like Gone Girl meets Pretty Little Liars."

Natasha Ngan
"Girls of Paper and Fire is as lush - and brutal - as the Demon King's own court. Ngan is a stunning new talent."
