Is it really this time of the week again already?! This past week has flown by because I’ve been so busy, and it’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday! Today’s is all about authors I’m waiting on another book from. I’m a fan of a lot of authors so hopefully, this one should be pretty easy – there are a few authors I’m ALWAYS waiting for new books from! Let’s go!
5. Eowyn Ivey
One of my favourite books, The Snow Child, is written by Eowyn Ivey. It’s so well-written with its vivid descriptions and magical as well as harrowing storylines. I read it a couple of years ago and then reread it earlier this year and I can’t get enough of it. I’d love to read more by Eowyn Ivey and I’ve actually just remembered that she actually has a new book out!!! instantly goes to buy it
4. Erin Lawless
On this blog, I’ve posted a cover reveal and a book review for two of Erin Lawless’ Bridesmaids series and I can’t wait to read the next one. It makes a change to read something a bit shorter than a full-length novel; these novellas are so lighthearted that they are ultimate feel-good stories to read on a sunny day. I’m currently waiting for the second novella in the series to be released!
3. Markus Zusak
I absolutely loved reading Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief – it made me laugh, fear for the lives of the characters and cry. A LOT. That, for me, is a massive achievement because nothing makes me cry – films, TV, and especially not books. One thing that I love about The Book Thief is the unique way it’s written; the writing style is like nothing I’ve read before and it made it so fascinating to read. I’d love another book from Markus Zusak (I wonder if he could make me cry again?).
2. John Green
This might get a little controversial: I’m not a huge fan of John Green’s books. I’ve read every one of them and although I enjoyed reading them all at the time, they’re so forgettable. (Apart from The Fault in Our Stars – I mainly remember that because I’ve seen the film a couple of times.) However, I would be very interested to see another book from John Green. I do really like John and Hank Green, otherwise known as Vlogbrothers on YouTube, and I’d still be excited to see him release a new book. I’d like to see what storyline he could come up with next and if he could create some
less bland and boring interesting characters.
1. Louise Rennison
I haven’t actually read all of Louise Rennison’s books yet but I keep meaning to. My sister and I own the complete collection of her Georgia Nicholson series and I’ve read the first few. She’s made this list for quite a sad reason – she died earlier this year and I still can’t believe it’s happened, it doesn’t seem real. I keep expecting to hear news of a new book and it feels so strange.
I’ve loved her books since I was a teenager and the audiobooks were great because she read them herself! They are so funny and she knew just how to read them properly to get the intended effect. When I listen to them now though I can’t help feeling a bit sad because we won’t get any more books or amazingly funny audiobooks. I’m just going to keep reading her books and make sure they live on!
Do you agree with any of my choices? Who are you waiting on a new book from? Let me know in the comments or tell me if you’re taking part on your own blog and I’ll have a look!
