Reading Gold

You know what’s the best thing? When you get to the end of a book and you think, “Oh my God, that was awesome. I need to write this author’s name down and see what else they’ve written.”

Guess what’s even better? When you do that twice in a week!

I am going to review both books so I won’t give any spoilers here. What I will say though is that I Crawl Through by A.S. King and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver were both surprising and that’s what kept me reading. And I don’t mean there was a twist at the end, I mean that they had a unique take on things and while the themes might not have been anything new, they way they were presented was.

Finding an author, not just a book, who’s work you enjoy is reading gold. Honestly. And I can’t wait to read more of their work.

When’s the last time you had a moment like that? Do you have favourite authors or do you ‘read around’?

Questions for My Favourite Author

Who’s your favourite author? Mine is Terry Pratchett. I’ve read (and reread) all his books and they never fail to delight and inspire me. Sadly, Terry passed away in 2015 but if I had had a chance to spend some time with him I would have asked him these questions:

Who’s your favourite author?

What do you think the hardest part of writing is?

How do you keep track of so many characters across so many different books?

What story haven’t you written yet, that you would love to write?

Will you be my BFF? (OK, not that one)

Me and Mr. Pratchett.

 

What about you? Who’s your favourite author and what would you like to ask them?
