My Big Fat Recommendation List: A Authors

So here's the first part of what I'm calling my big fat recommendation list. This is everything I've at least liked (so around three and a half stars or so and above) all in one place. I'll be doing it alphabetically to make things easier on everyone. So this part will be books by authors with names beginning in A, and then there'll be one for the letter b, and so on. I'll be putting a link list to everything over in one of the sidebars, so people can just click that in the future and find books. I'm providing a link to the books in question to Goodreads for anyone who wants more info on said books.
On categories: I'm basically dividing this up the way you would find it in your local bookstore/library. So there'll be a children's/middle-grade section, YA section, general adult section (that may be further divided up by genre), and a non-fiction section. All of these lists will be updated around every six months or so as I find new favorites.
Note: if there is not a book on here that you think should be on here it's probably because a) I have not read it yet so can't say for sure I recommend it or b) I have read it and did not like it and do not recommend it. Also, if there's a book on here that you've read and don't like, I'm sorry...I don't care.  These are MY personal recommendations. If you feel so strongly about it, feel free to make your own list.
