Right. This blog series is being resurrected. (For real this time, I know I said this in the last post which was months ago now, oops).
Thank you to those of you who have been participating in this little idea that I created! If anyone else is interested, here are the rules:-
- Credit/link back to me so I can see your posts!
- List your favourite Authors, Books and Characters beginning with a certain letter of the alphabet
- Do as many or as few letters as you want
Authors beginning with ‘E’
Ok, so she only has one book published right now but I absolutely loved it. The Wicked Deep is an atmospheric witchy story that I read last year and that I am itching to reread.
Gavin Extence wrote one of my favourite books, which is grossly underrated – The Universe vs Alex Woods. I have another of his books on my shelf that I’m hoping to get to this year.
Books beginning with ‘E’
First of all, I want to give a shoutout to indie author Julia Blake whose short story collection I read last year and really enjoyed. There’s definitely something for everyone in here.
The third book in the Discworld series and remaining one of my favourites that I’ve read so far. I love the sassy witches and Pratchett’s tongue-in-cheek humour.
Egg and Spoon
I love books set in Russia and this one was super unique. I described it in my review as Studio Ghibli meets The Prince and the Pauper.
Even the Darkest Stars
This is the first book in a duology (I’m still to read the conclusion, of course). I loved that the story centred on a journey, and the Tibetan-inspired world building was amazing.
Characters beginning with ‘E’
I read The Queens of Innis Lear last year and it was one of my favourite books of 2018. I loved all of the characters, particularly the three strong women at the heart of the story. Elia was glorious.
He might be a serious anti-hero (you could even call him the villain) but I have a major soft spot for the Phantom of the Opera.
It just shows how skilled Laini Taylor is at her craft that she can make me feel so many emotions for minor characters. Her exploration of Eril-Fane’s PTSD in Muse of Nightmares was outstanding.
What are your favourite authors/books/characters beginning with E? I’d love to see your posts if you’d like to participate in Alex’s Alphabeticals! x
