Welcome back to the penultimate post in this special T5T series! This month we list our favorite authors in alphabetical order. Today, it’s time to talk about writers starting with P, Q, R, S, and T. Well, I don’t have anybody for P, Q, or T so you’ll get a lot of R and S from my front!

#1 Ransom Riggs

Would you please look at the cover of this book. How could the writing be anything less than stunning? Ransom Riggs really did impress me with how inventive this story is!

#2 Rick Riordan

Who would have guessed that I’d list Rick Riordan? Well, probably anybody who ever read a post on my blog. I read sooooo many of his books (and of course reviewed them) and loved every single one.

#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.

#1 Douglas Adams

How could I not have included him? He was a genius, his famous Hitchhiker’s Guide books have reached cult-status and he made me laugh out loud more time than I can count.

#2 Leigh Bardugo

I know I was late to the party for her books. However, after reading her entire bibliography back to back last year, she’s definitely among my most beloved writers.

My DVD Rack from A to Z (Part 4)

The fourth and final part of my series!

 

R – Requiem for a Dream:
This one is extremely intense and not for the faint-hearted. It depicts the story of several people struggling with their drug addiction.
Darren Aronosfky gives a very realistic picture that will crawl under your skin. It’s a very dark movie but nonetheless beautifully made.

My DVD Rack from A to Z (Part 3)

Here we go – this is part 3 of my series. The last part will be only in the next few days!

M – Mary and Max:mary and max
This one might be the cutest film I ever saw. It’s about a rather strange relationship that develops when the 8-year-old Daisy writes a letter to a 44-year-old man in America ’cause she is curious about life in the States.
There are so many lovely moments in this movie, you’re just drifting from one “oooh”-sigh to the other. It may be a strange movie but it’s nonetheless heart-warming.

My DVD Rack from A to Z (Part 2)

This is the second part of my A to Z DVD rack posts 🙂 Stay tuned for the next posts!

G – Gremlins: gremlins
This one is really good. It’s a rather dark Christmas movie about a cute little Mogwai name Gizmo who brings up some dangerous fellas.
Gizmo is one of my all-time favourite movie creatures. I even got me a plush toy. By now Gremlins is a firm part of my annual Christmas routine.
