Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey @GingerReadsLainey and she has passed down the torch to Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. For more information and for future topics you can check out the goodreads group.
This week the topic is the authors we want to read more from. And let’s be real, there are definitely more than five authors that I want to read more books from.
In this post I will be mentioning authors that have books out that I haven’t read yet but really want to. Not authors whose upcoming releases I’m looking forward to or authors I wish would write more books.
(That could be a whole other topic.) And I won’t be mentioning Victoria Schwab, I do want to read all her books but I always mention her so I don’t want to be too repetitive.
Let’s get into my list!
5. Haruki Murakami
Haruki Murakami is an author that I first read in high school. During that time period I was very interested in Japanese literature and wanted to read a book set in Japan. And seeing that Haruki Murakami’s name kept popping up I decided to read his books. I wasn’t disappointed. I really enjoy his writing style and way of story telling, I can’t wait to read more of his books.
4. Neil Gaiman
All of Neil Gaiman’s books that I have read so far I have greatly enjoyed. His writing style is simply magical and he creates fantastic worlds that I can’t stop reading about. My two favourites so far would have to be The Graveyard Book and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. I’m very exited to continue reading his works and hopefully I’ll be picking up something by him rather soon.
3. Cassandra Clare
I have already read The Infernal Devices
(and LOVED them) and the first two books of The Mortal Instruments and I really NEED to continue reading that series. Honestly I want to read all the books set in the Shadowhunters universe, they all very much intrigue me. I just like the character that she creates and I find the whole Shadowhunter world to be fascinating, so I obviously want to read more about it.
2. Patrick Ness
Patrick Ness is one of my all time favourite authors. So far I have read The Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls by him and I simply ADORED all of those books. I really want to read all of his books. Hopefully I will be able to get to them some time soon. I do already own More Than This, so I could read it soon.
1. Rick Riordan
I have already read many books by Rick Riordan. I have read Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus and The Kane Chronicles. But I just can’t get enough of his stories and I NEED to read more! I’m very interested in getting my hands on all of these books, but I think I will wait until more books from the series have been published – as I love binge reading his books, I feel as if I get the most out of them that way.
