Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is all about self-published books (note: the term ‘indie’ is also used interchangeably in the book world), and I confess that I wanted to curl in on myself at the thought of narrowing down my fave indie authors or books. So…. I didn’t haha. Because I love so many indie authors, y’all!! And I want you to see how many great ones there are!! Ergo, today’s post features alllllllllllllllllllllllll of the self-published books I’ve reviewed & loved since my blog began way back in 2015. Yep, that’s right. Every last one of them. (Ok… there’s also a handful in here that I haven’t reviewed but have read & loved & can’t imagine not including them in a post on indie books)
Self-published books get a bad rap because – let’s face it – anyone and everyone can publish a book now. But, just like not all traditionally published books are great (trust me – I’ve suffered through some doozies), you also can’t make a blanket statement on the perceived low quality of indie books. In fact, the majority of the ones I’ve read have been fantastic and I have several go-to authors who are either strictly self-published or hybrid (a mix of traditionally published and self-published books). So don’t judge a self-published book until you’ve read it!! And I highly recommend any and each of these books and their authors. And there are so many more that I’ve featured but haven’t read yet!!!
Oh… and please don’t judge the earliest blog posts either. I’ve learned a lot since then, I hope haha.

Well…. now you can’t say anymore that you don’t know which self-published books are good because I’ve given you a boatload of indies that I’ve reviewed (or read) and loved! What about you? Who are some of your fave indie authors or self-published books?
