Firstly, Happy Sunday I’m sorry I didn’t get a Six for Sunday last week but today I’m back. This weeks question is authors you’ll always pick up.
Now this is a great question but how do I choose just six gorgeous authors. Of late I haven’t felt very good about my blog and my blogging life and a number of awesome authors have made me realise why I choose books.
Books will always be a massive part of my life and Catriona was asking on her Instagram just the other day what book got you into reading. My answer was Enid Blyton I loved the Famous Five and the Secret Seven – I even remember there being a TV show that was also fab. I love that there are now adult parody’s based on these characters. I haven’t read all of them yet but I have had so much fun having the gang back in a modern sort of era.
So without further ado…
Paige Toon – Everyone thinks as a reader and blogger I have read all of her novels – wrong. I got into her work seriously late thanks to the lovely team at Simon & Schuster and now I would pretty much ditch anything for Paige’s work.
Cecelia Ahern – I’m a huge fan of her work and I’m saddened that I’ve got a number of her books outstanding to read. What I will say is she has never let me down and I hope to get organised soon.
Miranda Dickinson – Another author I discovered late. I have been lucky enough to be part of Miranda’s cheer squad for a few of her novels. I got When I Fall in Love the Christmas it was released and it’s the only one of her books I haven’t read as yet. Miranda always takes me on a gorgeous rollercoaster and I will forever be recommending her books.
Ian McEwan – I haven’t read a lot of his work but I have some on that ever growing TBR pile. When at school studying English Literature we read Enduring Love this was the book that got me back reading for pleasure I was mesmerised and sped read ahead of my classmates as I needed to know what happened.
Rosie Blake – I still remember discovering How to get a Love Life. I don’t know if it was Netgalley or just a publisher sending a pdf. I remember it being one of my first electronic reads and I couldn’t get enough of it. When How to stuff up Christmas came out I was invited to a blogger evening and I believe that was in the crossover from blogging with a friend to blogging on my own. I had a fabulous evening and she was nothing but lovely to me. I have read all of her novels under Rosie Blake and none have disappointed.
Ruth Ware – In a Dark Dark Wood will always hold special memories for me. I read it after first coming across the Poppy Loves Book Club – although I never made it to the meeting thanks to work but I was instantly a fan of this ladies work. I have since read and loved The Woman in Cabin 10 and I have her other two. Her latest is likened to Daphne Du Maurier and I met Ruth on publication day but headaches and crazy times means I haven’t read it yet.
I would love to know your choices there are so many I could add…
