Authors Are Rockstars: Hannah Moskowitz Interview & Giveaway

Today, we are happy to join Fiktshun, Two Chicks on Books and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads in the 2nd Annual Authors Are Rockstars Tour! You can find all of the details and blogs participating HERE.

Why is Hannah a rockstar?

Hannah is one-of-a-kind in her storytelling. She writes amazing novels that broach subjects that aren't often written into young adult fiction, and she does so with grace and originality. Her books are engaging, with characters that you can't help but love--even with how messed up they are (and if you've read her work, you know exactly what I'm talking about). She's an insta-buy author for me (Emily), and she should be for you as well! Her books are beautiful, both inside and out. Hannah is undeniably a rockstar!

When did you know that you would be a writer?

I always knew I wanted to be a writer or a singer. Then I heard some people who could actually sing and welllll there you go.

How long did it take for you to first get published?

I started writing seriously when I was 14. I sold my first novel (which was actually the seventh I ever wrote) BREAK when I was 17. It came out in 2009, when I was 18.

Are you working on any new projects?

Yes! I have a lot of great things in the works. The one I'm most excited about is a cowriting project I just finished the first draft of. My cowriter is incredibly talented and it's a story that's very personal to both of us and was very rewarding to write.

You’ve written a mix of different genres, which genre is easier for you to write and why?

I always say my spirit animal is a fifteen-year-old emo boy, so any books that have one or two of them are the easiest.

Do you relate personally to any of your stories?

To some extent to all of them, but none as much as I do GONE, GONE, GONE, which is about the D.C. metro sniper shootings in 2002., I was living in the area at the time and I've never been able to get them out of my head.

What authors inspires you?

Jaclyn Moriarty, Melina Marchetta, E. Lockhart, E. E. Cummings, J. M. Barrie, Chris Lynch, Steve Breznoff, Francesca Lia Block, a bajillion others.

If you weren’t a writer, what would be your ideal job?

I want to American's Next Top Model.

What’s your favorite food?


Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Supernatural, obviously.

What is your ideal past time?

Eating cereal.

Thank you to Hannah for joining us today, and to the love ladies in charge of this tour, for allowing us to partake!
Interested in Emily's thoughts on Hannah's books:


  1. I consider Meg Cabot to be a rockstar. She has written so many genres, and all of them so brilliantly - I love all her protagonists.

  2. Tammara Webber and Rachel Vincent! I love these author's books!

  3. Great post! Thanks so much for being a tour host!


  4. I think Scott Westerfeld is a Rockstar. Seriously. He's the man!! Very versatile.

  5. Quite a lot but Sarah J. Maas comes to mind since she has a new release in August. Her heroine kicks ass!

  6. Omg, I LOVE Hannah Moskowitz!! She's my rock star. Seriously. I'll read anything she writes. AHHHH, she's so amazing. <3

  7. Cassie Clare is my rockstar because I am a reader because of her!

  8. Hannah Moskowitz is the brightest star in the sky. She inspires me.

  9. So many, probably Sarah Dessen more than any others. However I've read a couple of Hannah Moskowitz's books, and they are really good too.

  10. Well, I have Dan Krokos as my rockstar on my blog but really, I have so many I consider rockstars. He lists Sarah J. Maas and Susan Dennard as rockstars and I truly have to agree with him. Those two are so awesome!

    Every author truly is a rockstar.

  11. John Green and Cora Carmack are rockstars! They have their own unique style that makes their books different from the rest. <3

  12. I consider Enid Blyton and Meg Cabot as my rockstars because there books introduced me to this fascinating world of reading :)

  13. Sooo many...Ilona Andrews, Michelle Sagara, Stacia Kane, Adrian Phoenix, Anne Bishop, Patricia Briggs, Jeaniene Frost....

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  14. Hanna Moskowitz,because the way her books are written and attract people is amazing!

  15. Hmmm. I can't think of anyone in particular right now.. but I'd agree that all of the authors in this tour are rockstars :D

  16. I consider J.K Rowling as my rockstar!

  17. I haven't actually ever read a Hanna Moskowitz book, but I have Invincible Summer on one of my readers. Huh, probably a good time to read that. And I remember your review of Teeth made me think I should pick that one up, too. :)

  18. My rockstar has to be David Levithan! I fell in love with Every Day, and it's my favourite book, ever.
