Authors I Really Should’ve Read By Now

Hi all! Today I wanted to share with you some authors I have yet to read. Much like my T5W Series I Want to Start in 2016, this post will hopefully shame me into picking up these authors works sooner rather than later.

 

 

#10 Bram Stoker

I adore gothic fiction and like most girls my age was obsessed with Twilight. To the point where for most of my High School years I wouldn’t read anything that didn’t have a fanged blood-sucker as the love interest. So I think it’s about time I read the original vampire story.

 

#9 Neil Gaiman

This past year I’ve been slowly collection a bunch of Gaiman’s work because they all sound like things I’ll be interested in. Mythology, fantasy worlds, a misplaced Antichrist, falling stars, alternate cities, gothic lyrical writing. I hope to get to one of his books this year.

 

#8 Stephen King

Not only is this man a prolific writer, he’s my mum favourite author. Which means I have access to a large portion of his works… yet I still have read to one. Also my friend, Bree, gifted me with my own, beautiful copy of The Green Mile which – you guessed it – is also unread.

 

#7 Rick Riordan

I love mythology. I love the world Riordan had created.  I love the movie adaptations of his Percy Jackson and the Olympian series so why haven’t I picked up these up?

 

#6 J.R.R Tolkein

Yep you read correctly, I have yet to read the King of Fantasy. Tolkein’s world building is crazy – I mean he created his own language. This is a well loved world and one that I really want to experience for myself. I didn’t particularly enjoy the movies but I hear the books or 1000x better so I’m excited.

 

#5 Thomas Harris

The man who created the world’s most interesting character, Hannibal Lector, the polite serial killer. I just want to read these books just to get to know this twisted character better – that sounds weird I know.

 

#4 Elizabeth Chadwick

Chadwick writes historical fiction, which I love, and focuses purely on the Plantagenet monarch, who I’m fascinated with. Again why haven’t I gotten to any on her books? I own one and

 

#3 Kate Forsyth

I need to read her! Not only is she an Australian author but she is a pretty prolific writer. Also she spins historical fiction with fairy tale retellings. Do I need to say more?

 

#2 Alexander Dumas

The man behind one of my favourite group of characters, The Three Musketeers. I have watched and adored just about every adaption. I am naming my puppy d’Artangan. So I think it’s about time I read the source material

 

#1 Susan Hill

I had no idea that the scariest movie ever, The Women in Black, is a novel. She’s is a gothic horror writer which is a genre I adore. I need to read anything by the lady!

 

 

That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me which author’s you have still yet to get to.

Until next time, happy reading!

November Book Haul – Part 3

Hi all! I’m here with the final part of my November book haul. As mentioned in my previous November Haul posts (part 1 & part 2) these are all used/ex-library books.

This post will be mostly picture as I don’t much about these apart from what the blurb say. I will link their Goodread pages down below as it will describe the books better than I can! I will include who recommended books and interesting facts randomly.

Some of these books are 2nd, 3rd or even 4th in their series but I’m wanting to read the series so am collecting books where I can. Others I’m just trying to collect an author’s published works.

Now onto the books!
