As usual, this meme is hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish, and this week it is focussing on those authors who you have only read one or two books by, but are desperate to read more of their works! Here is my list:-
1. Catherynne M Valente
Read: The Girl who Circumnavigated a Ship in her own making.
Want to read: Deathless
I have read and enjoyed the first two books in her “Fairyland” series, but Deathless looks like something so different, definitely need to try it!
2. Gillian Flynn
Read: Gone Girl
To read: Sharp Objects/Hidden Places
Gillian Flynn has uncovered a love of thrillers I had no idea I had. I’m so excited for the movie of Gone Girl (three people in work are reading it before they see the movie and I’m just like I CAN’T SAY A WORD BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS A SPOILER BUT IT’S GOOD.) I NEED to read her other books.
3. Gabrielle Zevin
To read: Memoirs of Teenage Amnesiac and The Story of A.J Fikry
The Story of AJ Fikry has been popping up on booktube a little bit and getting good reviews, and I really enjoyed Elsewhere, so I definitely want to try more of Zevin’s works. I did also see the japanese movie of “amnesiac” a few years ago (with Maki and Toma), it wasn’t great but it was enjoyable.
4. Virginia Woolf:
Read: A Room of One’s Own
To Read: To the Lighthouse and The Waves
5. Alice Hoffman
Read: Practical Magic
to read: Seventh Heaven
The book is a little different to the movie (When are they not) but I was thinking I’d like to read more of Hoffman’s works and I spotted Seventh Heaven on netgalley the other day! So it is now sitting on my kindle waiting for me. Nice when that works out, isn’t it?
6. Agatha Christie
Read: And Then There were None
to read: 4.30 to Paddington
Oh boy- need to read more of Christie, for sure. I’ve only read And Then there were None and I was so engrossed in it- my dad has a collection of her books so I need to get on it.
7. Jodi Lynn Anderson
Read: the moment collector
to read: Tiger Lily
I really enjoyed the moment collector, and I have spotted she has written a re-telling of Peter Pan- you know me and my fairy tale re-tellings.
8. Sarah Addison Allen
Read: the girl who chased the moon/The sugar queen
to read: Garden Spells
Sarah Addison Allen is a newish author to me. I’ve read two of her books and enjoyed both of them, so I want to read more of her work.
9. Charlotte Bronte
Read: Jane Eyre
To read: Shirley and Vilette
Jane Eyre is one of my favourites- must read more!
10. Ernest Hemingway
Read: A Farewell to Arms
To read: The Sun Also Rises
I enjoyed A Farewell to Arms, although it was a bit slow in places, I think I like the sounds of the Sun Also Rises….
have you read any of these books or authors? What do you think of them?
