This week the topic is…
All Time Favourite Authors
Ok, this is hard. I’m pretty sure that regular readers will be able to guess a few of these though. I’ve decided to narrow it down by this.. if the author were to release a new book tomorrow I’d snap it up no questions asked. In some cases I may not have read all of their existing work – but I’m working my way through it!
GEORGE R.R. MARTIN – No surprise there! I’ve read A Song of Ice and Fire twice now and I’m feeling the need to read it for a third time… if only The Winds of Winter would be published to satiate my ASoIaF cravings!
KHALED HOSSEINI – His writing – I just love it. A Thousand Splendid Suns was the first book (well, since Bambi) to have me in floods of tears.
SARAH HILARY – Sarah’s second book No Other Darkness is out this week (my review here). She’s a stunning author & I’m already excited for her third book!
LEIGH BARDUGO – I loved The Grisha trilogy. Bardugo’s writing and her concepts are fantastic. I cannot wait for Six For Crows.
STIEG LARSSON – So obviously Larsson isn’t going to be creating any new content, but if he did I’d buy it without question. Intrigued (& a bit nervous) as to what That Which Does Not Kill will be like (completed by David Lagercrantz).
DAN BROWN – I refused to read Brown’s books back in the days when The Da Vinci Code was topping the bestsellers (I’m odd like that). However once all the fuss died down I read it, loved it and devoured the rest of his books.
SCOTT LYNCH – His Gentleman Bastard series is quite simply brilliant. I’m delighted that book 4, The Thorn of Emberlain, will be out this year.
J.R.R. TOLKIEN – I’m still working my way through the work of Tolkien, but if a piece of his work were unearthed & published tomorrow I’d be all over it!
ÅSNE SEIERSTAD – When it comes to non-fiction Seierstad is an author I truly admire. As an international journalist, she offers us a glimpse into different cultures and real everyday life in, often, wartorn countries.
