Everyone has their favourite authors, but there are also those who you just don’t gel with for some reason.
I’ve spoken at length about the authors whose books I cannot miss, but I’ve not really mentioned the ones I don’t think I’ll ever pick up. Some on this list I’ve read some from but not really loved them, others I just know aren’t for me.
There’s a chance one of your favourite authors will appear on this list, and if they do I’m really sorry. However, there’s also a high chance my favourites list is peppered with authors who you would put on a list like this one.
This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Desert Island Discs is a pretty popular segment on BBC Radio 4. Some of the world’s most famous faces come along and list out the eight CDs they’d like to have with them if marooned on a desert island.
I’ve decided to put my own spin on it to create a list of the books I’d bring to stave off the boredom of a desert island.
You can also choose one luxury item that doesn’t help you to escape the island, so there goes my request for a copy of How to Build a Boat.
In November, I wanted most, if not all, of my reading to come from my Netgalley shelf. I felt it was necessary to take a couple of books off it, as my score lay around 65 per cent for such a long time.
I also discovered the 1,000 Doors Readathon run by Emma, Meg, and Tamsin during the month. Thankfully it was a Choose Your Own Adventure readathon, so I could fit books in as much as possible from my TBR.
