It’s time for Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more or join as well, just go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. The topic for today is fairly straight forward about auhors you want to read more from, but with a specific condition. Here the official prompt:
Authors You Are Waiting on Another Book From
— These are your favorite authors who you want to write another book but haven’t yet. Or they are writing something, but no title or synopsis has been released and it isn’t coming out until 2018. Try to keep this to authors who haven’t announced anything concrete about a new book, not authors that have a highly anticipated release coming out before the end of 2016.
None of the authors on this list should come as a surprise to you and least of all Erin Morgenstern. I was/am obsessed with the Night Circus and will forever want more books from her … but here I am, years later, still waiting. Whatever she will publish will probably be another masterpiece because she took the time to perfect it, but I am not the most patient when it comes to books …
I know that Stephanie Perkins is working on some sort of crime novel, so technically she is having something in the workings, but I am talking about another YA Romance/Contemporary! I want that, because I am definitely not that much into mystery, crime and thrillers. I already have to endure them on TV all the time because that’s basically all my dad watches.
Remember that genius piece of writing that was The Book Thief? Well, I read his other books … liked some, didn’t like others, but I am still waiting for him to come up with another modern classic and eternal heartbreaker. I would be sad to think that this was all he had in him.
Maybe that woman has something in the works I don’t know about, but one thing is for sure, I will never get enough of her work. Good thing I still have one book by her ahead of me to tie me over until a new release comes along.
Once upon a time aka last summer, I went on a Lockhart-book-buying-spree and got all the books she wrote that I could possibly attain in a short amount of time. They accompanied me through Cardiff and I just want more of her books in the future. I need them!
So, who are some authors (who don’t have anything coming up in the next two years) you want to have on your shelf again? Tell me all about it in the comments!
