7 Authors I Haven’t Read Yet

1. Neil Gaiman

4407 2213661

He is one of the kings of fantasy and everybody loves him. I’ve heard him speak many times and read one short story by him. There is no way that I won’t adore his work. It’s just a matter of getting them in my hands!

2. Patrick Ness

6043848   8621462

I own the first book in the Chaos Walking series and can’t wait to get stuck in. I was spoiled over something a while ago which is probably why I haven’t started it sooner.

3. L.M Montgommery of Anne of Green Gables fame

8127   77390

I’d never heard of this series until I was a late teenager but I know it was a lot of people’s childhood staple. I love novels like A Little Princess and I,Capture the Castle so this will be right up my street.

4. Catherynne M, Vilante

9591398                                                                                 8694389

The Fairyland series sounds amazing as does her other works. I adore Russian fairy tales and folk lore of which she incorporates beautifully in her books.

5. David Levithan

6567017 23228

I’m already a massive fan of John Green so I want to start with Will Grayson Will Grayson and then maybe Boy Meets Boy. 

6. Markus Zusak

893136 19057

I finally, finally own The Book Thief which I’ve coveted for several years now. I knew I’d love it but I think I was scared that I wouldn’t love it as much as I want to but with the movie coming out soon I figured that now would be the best time to read it.

7. Margaret Atwood 

820689 46756

I own The Handmaid’s Tale but just haven’t got around to it yet. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to love it. Atwood is a literature staple and I feel like it would be wrong not to give at least one of her books a go anyway.

Top 10 Movie Tie-in Covers That I Actually Like

1. A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood.

Image

Because Colin Firth. Duh.

2. Big Fish by Daniel Wallace

Image

I really like that the “G” looks like fish tails.

3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Image

I love the colour, the composition… plus having Emma Watson on the cover doesn’t hurt either. The movie was pretty great but the book was utterly heartbreaking. I had to put the book down at one point because it physically hurt to see Charlie in so much pain. I’d definitely recommend both but I’m pretty sure everyone has seen and read it already!

4. Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian

Image

I adore the made-for-t.v-movie so much so I really like this cover. It just evokes great memories for me. This isn’t actually the one I own though.

5. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien 

15923724

I’ve seen all three Hobbit movies which I liked but nowhere near as much as I enjoyed The Lord of the Rings trilogy. This book is tiny but the movies stretched it out as much as possible which is why a lot of the plot in the second and third movies was quite weak.  It will be really interesting to compare them once I’ve read the book.

6. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

ImageImage

I received the one on the right for my birthday last year from my Uncle. While I was really happy that I now owned a copy I’d rather have the one on the left if I had to have a movie cover. I actually prefer this cover over any of the others. I think it’s beautiful and really captures that one happy day they had together.

7. Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote

Image

Audrey Hepburn. Enough Said. I will warn you that the movie is quite different from the book. The book is quite a bit darker and a lot less glitzy. I still enjoy both but for different reasons.

8. Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Image

It’s dark but innocent and the button moon really completes it.

9. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safron Foer

Image

There’s just something powerful about that boy’s piercing eyes and the fact that he’s covering his mouth. I’ve yet to read this or see the movie but I have read Everything is Illuminated so I look forward to it.

10. An Education by Nick Hornby

Image

The film was beautiful so I don’t mind being reminded of it by the cover. Also Carey Mulligan.

What are your favourite movie covers? Or are you just plain against them? Let me know if you make a post like this, I’d love to read it!
