Finally time for another Top 5 Wednesday! I missed the last week’s topic due to essays I needed to work on, but this week is pretty calm so I have more time blog 😀
This week’s topic is sponsored by Sam and Lainey over on this Goodreads group, and is about authors I want to read more from, authors from which I’ve only read one or few books from and need to read more. Because of that I won’t pick authors I want to read from but haven’t yet, but instead those I’ve already read from and want more.
Honestly, this was kind of tough. When I discover a new other that I love *cough* Brandon Sanderson *cough* I will devour all their books. But, luckily, I came up with some :D!
(victoria schwab, terry pratchett, robin hobb, william shakespeare, C.S. Lewis)
5. William Shakespeare
I’ve only read his play Hamlet, and fell in love. I really hadn’t expected that, but hey that’s wonderful! I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on another copy of one of his plays :D!
4. C.S. Lewis
I’ve read/listened to two of his Narnia books (The Magician’s Nephew and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) and both were magical reads. I love his writing style, his world-building, his characters… Plan on listening to the audio book of the third Narnia book sometime soon!
3. Victoria/V.E. Schwab
I loved Vicious and I seriously have no idea why I haven’t read more from her. A Darker Shade of Magic sounds like something I’d love, but I just haven’t got my hands on a copy and that’s the only reason, I guess. Definitely need to read more from her.
2. Terry Pratchett
Well, I’ve only read the novel he did with Neil Gaiman, Good Omens, and that is honestly the book with Gaiman that I love the most. Ever since I found out about the Discworld series I have been quite intimidated, but after finishing Good Omens, I think I’ll love Pratchett’s writing. I have the first book to start soon, though I know that most people say that you should skip the first two, I plan on reading the first and then skip to another. Just to get some background facts and such 😀
1. Robin Hobb
Aaaand no. 1 place goes to Robin Hobb! I’ve read The Liveship Traders and gave each book 5 stars on Goodreads, I just LOVED everything about them. Why did it take me so much time to read them? I have no doubt that Hobb will be my new Sanderson (jk, no one will replace his books but they will stand on equal footing). I plan on going to town and just buy all her Elderling books in one go, or at least a whole trilogy. If you haven’t read any Hobb books, what are you waiting for?? Go annd read them!
So! These were my picks for this week’s topic, do you agree with any or already read them? Which authors would you like to read more? Comment below! If you’ve done this meme, I’d love to see your picks 😀 ❤
