Happy Tuesday, gals and pals! Today is another Top 5 Tuesday. Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the lovely Shanah at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit here for the upcoming topics!
Today the topic is authors I NEED to read! Which is a great topic, because there are so many authors I really need to read ASAP.
Mitch Albom: this one is kind of shameful. We own so many Mitch Albom books and my parents love them, and I have yet to read any of them. Hopefully
Maya Angelou: I’ve also never read anything by Maya Angelou. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about her writing, so this needs to happen ASAP as possible.
Roxanne Gay: I love everything Roxanne Gay says, but I have never read anything by her except her tweets. I have about four of her books on my TBR, too, so this needs to happen soon.
Alice Hoffman: my mom is a big fan of Alice Hoffman, and her books sound right up my alley. She writes magical realism, I’m pretty sure, which, when done well, is my jam.
N. K. Jemisin: oh look, another author I just follow on Twitter. Mara Wilson AKA Matilda highly recommends Jemisin’s books, which is enough endorsement for me honestly. I’ve also heard that she writes really interesting fantasy worlds, which I need in my life soon.
Toni Morrison: another shameful one. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Morrison, so I really need to read her soon.
So those are some authors I really need to read soon! What about you? Which authors do you need to read ASAP? Have you read any of these? Which of their books should I read first? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! xx
