Top Ten Tuesday #36

This Week’s Theme: Top Ten ALL TIME Favourite Authors – not gunna lie. Don’t think I’ve even got ten! =/ I mean, I have to find authors that aren’t only autobuys but like find the ones that I personally think are awesome too!

1. J.R.R.Tolkien – the man, the master! What he wrote was so beautiful and so epic at the same time. He’s the reason I’m into fantasy! [pretty sure I read The Hobbit before Harry Potter!] and omg he was just a genius. Granted the reasons and reality behind his stories is heartbreaking but that also is what makes them that much more amazing!

2. Brandon Sanderson – he is a god! His writing is amazing, his stories epic- yes, yes, I’ve only read one of his books (shh!) but I knew even not 200 pages into the books, that this man was gunna do great things in the fantasy genre. And I’ve been proven right so far!

3. William Shakespeare – This is probably an odd one but I have to admit: I am a huge Shakespeare fan! I love the way he writes and because of the way he writes, the meaning sometimes seem completely different to what is written. He can do humour well, sarcasm well, existentialism.. I just really enjoy his work and need to read more of it!

—-

Not gunna lie, that is my list. C.S.Lewis isn’t on there because I was only interested in Narnia not him and his works. Same with JK Rowling; never gunna read anything she brings out that isn’t HP related. Lemoney Snicket: loved his books to death growing up but it’s been years and not read anything of his outside ASOUE. Terry Pratchett isn’t on here because I feel I need to read at least 10 of his books before I can be solid on him; I do love his writing and everything he stood up for etc. but I personally don’t feel I qualify to have him as a fav author just yet.

Same Time, Next Week!

  1. It was hard for me too because I don’t think there are many authors where I noticed style behind a story until university. I chose some of my authors for back story as well because I can relate or like what they do. Their personality can draw me in more.

  2. I still don’t care much for The Casual Vacancy, but I feel like you could be missing out on the Robert Galbraith books, if you’re into the genre. The Silkworm especially is a pretty decent book.
