Top 5 Tuesday: Favorite Authors with F, G, H, I, and J

Hey, guys!
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

If you haven’t heard of Joe Hill yet, be prepared to stock up on his books right now. He’s Stephen King’s son and as a horror writer, he is just as skilled as his dad.

#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!

  2. Inkworld and Cornelia Funke is basically my childhood to early teens. I loved that woman’s writing, because it was the first time I felt really connected and cared for the characters. I also ADORED Herr der Diebe/The Thief Lord in both book and movie form. I don’t know why, but there’s a certain smell I associate with that story and sometimes people in a crowd will walk by and it will smell like that book and I will go “huh, I wish I knew that person” because I have such good memories of it.
