You know when you’re talking with another bookworm and they bring up their opinion about the latest book released by a famous author? And you have never read any of their works?
This is me most of the time.
When it regards the publishing and writing world, almost everyone knows about those authors people keep raving about, it’s almost impossible you’ve never heard of them. Authors like Sarah J. Maas or V.E. Schwab whom I’ve read just because bloggers and bookstagrammers kept recommending them. And while I admit I didn’t end up enjoying their books as much as I thought I would, I recognise why many people loved them.
However, I have some famous authors I still haven’t read because I don’t think I will like their works or because I’m not interested in them. I’m listing only five of these authors and it’s up to your recommendations in the comments if I’ll read them or not.
- Stephen King
I know, I know. How come I’ve never read any of his books? You should know that I’m not a huge fan of thrillers and horror books, and while I liked one or two of the movies inspired by his books, I’m hesitant about starting one of them.
- Colleen Hoover
Her books seem interesting and I think I would be able to enjoy them. However, I’m afraid it won’t match my expectations like many other books have done.
- Marissa Mayer
Her retellings are wonderful to everyone. I once started Queen of Hearts, and after reading some pages of the book, I found myself bored and stopped continuing my reading. Her writing style was a little off to me and I don’t think I will ever read her The Lunar Chronicles, though many say I should start reading her books from said series.
- Jay Kristoff
I have never read any of his books, not because I know I won’t like them, but because I wasn’t particularly interested in them. I don’t know, maybe I will read Nevernight once I finish my TBR (it will never happen, but one can hope).
- Kiersten White
Same story of Merissa Meyer here. I started reading And I Darken but lost soon my interest. I admit I read only some pages and I should have kept reading because some pages don’t match the entire book. I think I will pick it up again at a later time. Who knows? Maybe I will get addicted to it like many did.
And you? Who are some authors everyone has read, except you? Tell me in the comments!
