Top 5 Wednesday: Authors You Want to Read More From

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey and is hosted by Samantha.

All information can be found here.

This week we talk a little about the authors we want to read more from. I don’t really have favorite authors and I always look at their work one book at a time but there are some that I’d be more inclined to read more from.

Let’s go!

Naomi Novik

author naomi novik

I’ve read Uprooted and really liked it. I’m considering picking up the Temeraire series but I’m a bit reluctant because it’s already a big series. This is a good thing because it means once I start and love it, I can just keep reading and reading and reading but it’s also a bad thing because I’m reading at a slow pace right now so I just don’t have the time to take on a series like that.. I’d get no other reading done whatsoever…

Ernest Hemingway

Author Ernest Hemingway

I’ve only read The Old Man and The Sea (and loved it) but I had For Whom The Bell Tolls on my shelf, so I should read that one soon.

Jane Austen

Author Jane Austen

I read Pride and Prejudice a while ago and I want to something else by her but I’m not sure what exactly. Any recommendations?

Neil Gaiman

Author Neil Gaiman

American Gods is now a TV series but when I tried to read it, I could not get into it. It’s also a massive book so I need some real reading time if I ever want to get through it. I’ve loved Neverwhere and The Ocean at the end of the Lane and I have Trigger Warning sitting on my shelf, so it’s only a matter of time before I pick something else up by him.

Ian McEwan

Author Ian McEwan

If you’ve read my review for Nutshell yesterday, you’ll know that I have a soft spot for Ian McEwan. Although I don’t enjoy all of his work, I’m always in awe of his writing style. I’ll just have to find the stories that really appeal to me.

  1. I felt the same way as you about Gaiman’s works so far. Neverwhere is one of my favourites, and I really liked The Ocean at the End of the Lane, but American Gods never clicked for me. I’d still like to read more of his books though, especially Stardust and Norse Mythology.

  2. Pride and Prejudice is my favourite Austen novel!! Out of her others I’d more highly recommend Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. I personally find them more enjoyable than Emma, and Sense and Sensibility, and they are better written as well. xx

  3. I loved Ian McEwan’s Children Act–I even posted on who I’d like in cast in the movie! Jane Austen I find I prefer to watch the movies/tv series–or listen to the books. To me they are like Shakespeare–I need to see it to enjoy it, even if I only “see” it by listening to the audio.I only learned to like Hemmingway as an adult–I hated For Whom the Bell Tolls in American Lit in high school, but today I’ve enjoyed several. Farewell to Arms was really good. Old Man and the Sea is the best though–a 6th Grade teacher read it aloud, which is why I was so upset when I could NOT get into For Whom at age 16. The Paris Wife helped me get into him for the 3rd time.
    Excellent List!

    1. I have The Paris Wife sitting on my shelf 😉 Thanks for the tip! And I’ll look into Children Act, I have no idea what that one is about.

    1. no I haven’t seen any adaptations yet, but I’ll read the book first 😉 I want to discover it in reading. I like it better that way. I’m always bad at reading a story after I’ve seen it on screen.

      1. haha I did the opposite with Emma, and maybe that even helped! But well, if you end up reading it, I will consider watching the BBC mini series! After of course 😉 !

    1. I know, American Gods is a though one. I think I’ll give it one more try and if it doesn’t work than I’ll move on to some of his other books, I still have plenty to choose from 😉
