Wonderful Wednesdays is a meme about spotlighting and recommending some of our most loved books, even if we haven't read them recently. Each week will have a different genre or theme.
This weeks theme is favourite authors.
Usually I choose books based on their individual themes and reviews, rather than based on who wrote them. Even if I love a book written by a certain author, I don't usually seek out that author's other books. But there are particular authors I make exceptions for, particular authors I will read anything by and get ridiculously excited if anything new comes out.
And then earlier this year, I finally got my hands on The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, which I found to be a thoughtful examination on the difference between Jesus and the Christian church. These books are from different genres and age ranges, which is the main reason why I love Pullman - he is so versatile.
And sitting on my shelf upstairs is a copy of her short story collection That Thing Around Your Neck, which I've been saving for my week off work next week. I love Adichie for the simple but powerful writing, the way she writes about Nigeria and her characters.
How about you?
I want to hear all about your favourite authors, whatever genre they come from. Grab the image above, make a blog post and then sign up to the linky below so we can all hop between blogs. Thanks to those that do take part.
