It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This month we have a special topic: we’ll be sharing our favorite authors in alphabetical order. After A, B, C, D, and E last week, today we’ll cover F, G, H, I, and J. Be sure to come back every Tuesday this month to catch up with the rest of the alphabet!
#1 Cornelia Funke
I only ever read her Inkworld books, but those most definitely hold a special place in my heart. She really captures what it means to love books and managed to press it between pages.
#2 Neil Gaiman
With Neil Gaiman, things are not that simple. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with his works. Usually, I really love his ideas but I am not that a fan of the execution. More often than not, I end up liking the adaptations of his works better than the actual books (which almost never happens!)
Anyways, he has some brilliant ideas that I love, so he deserves to be on this list.
#3 Joe Hill
#4 Alice Hoffman
Okay, again a bit of a problematic pick for me. I absolutely loved The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman but had some giant issues with Practical Magic. However, I am short of authors for this week’s letters, so here she is.
#5 Wolf Haas
Again, I’m a little short on picks for this weeks, so you’re now treated to an Austrian writer you’ve probably never heard of. Wolf Haas writes some pretty good crime stories and I binge read a couple of his books years ago!
