Each Friday, here at Prism we will be tackling a very important topic… of sorts. Five Thing Friday… The topic will change each week, so be sure to check back. We encourage you to comment with your own Five Things!
Topic: Authors We Want to Read, but Haven’t
I asked each of our reviewers to tell me 5 authors they want to read, but haven’t. I left it deliberately vague and open ended 😉
- Eden Winters
- Michael Murphy
- James Erich (okay that is cheating a wee bit)
- Freddy McKay
- Brandon Shire
- A book I want to finish ~ Finnegan’s Wake by James Joyce (I read Ulysses and loved that but FW stumped me)
- Truman Capote
- William Faulkner (well known authors with books on the accepted American literary canon so I have been remiss in not having read them)
- Luis Borges ~ because I’ve only really read Gabriel Garcia Marquez from Latin American Lit.
- Ray Bradbury ~ Especially Fahrenheit 451 ~ studied it without reading it lol
- Oscar Wilde. I’ve read enough about him for wanting to read something of his, but somehow i never get around to
- Terry Pratchett. As people rave about his books. But I’m not as into fantasy as I used to be.
- Dr.Seuss. When I was little,there was a show on German Tv about a cat in a hat that I loved. I only learned recently that this was based on an actual children’s book.
- Hemingway. I watched many of the movies, but never read a book of his.
- Z.Allora. I met her last year, she’s such a wonderful person, but alas…so many books, so little time….
- Aj Lewellyn
- DJ Manly
- KJ Charles
- Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin
- Beloved by Toni Morrison
- A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking
- The Shining by Stephen King
Optimist ♰King’s Wench♰
- John Lanyon
- K.J. Charles
- Anne Tenino
- Amy Lane
- George R.R. Martin
- Theo Fenraven……Have heard great things but have yet to read his works
- S.J. Frost…..I have two of her works on my TBR read list that have been rated highly
- Nora Roberts…..just to say I have
- TJ Klune…..I have heard such wonderful things about his writing that I am almost afraid to give it a go for fear of being let down(not that I think this will happen)
- George R.R. Martin – Love the show, but I want to read the novels that started it all
- Suzanne Collins – Love YA and seen the movies, haven’t found the time to read
- Veronica Roth – Love YA and seen the movies, haven’t found the time to read
- Virginia Bennett – Local to me and first time author
- J.R.R. Tolkien – Always meant to read, but never got around to it
- Sue Brown – Lots on my TBR but haven’t yet read
So what are your Five Things???
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
