It’s been a while since my last Thursday Thirteen. I think I am going to do this list once a month…just for fun 🙂
It won’t have long explanation like my Top-5 list.
Caroline @ Beauty is a Sleeping Cat told me once that I tend to repeat same author and I have to admit that she spoke the truth 😉 I have tendency to repeat the same author because reading a book is not like watching a movie. We can choose random movies as we pleased and ditch it when it wasn’t our cup of tea, but to choose random book is like high class gambling…and it’s not fun spending lots of hours just to finally ditch the book.
I only chose authors I don’t know when I have strong feeling from the book’s blurb and when I am in the mood for gambling…but when I want to enjoy my self, I avoid gambling and pick the authors I always enjoy.
In no particular order, here are 13 authors I often read or wish to read more by them.
(Click their names to see reviews of their books)
1. Stephen King
He is my favorite authors and I always try to read at least 3 books by him each year. You can see all the books I have read in this post called Counting Down Stephen King Books
2. Eiichiro Oda
I re-read his manga, One Piece, EVERY year for over 5 years now.
I wish to read ALL his books, but all in good time
I have only read 2 books and 1 manga by her, … and …, but I am eager to read more from her.
5. Chie Watari
She can be considered as the Female Stephen King of Manga world. I love his thriller and Horror manga so much.
Just like Murakami, I am trying to read his entire book. One waiting to be read from my shelf is State of Fear
Actually, I have only read The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, but each book has been reread at least three times.
Toriyama-sensei is one of Manga genius. He had inspired many shonen-mangaka (manga artist for boys). His Dragon Ball has spread throughout the world. And his Dr.Slump manga is also fun to read.
9. Kyoko Hikawa
She is the only Shoujo Mangaka (manga artist for girls) I like. I am not really into girls manga or shoujo manga but Hikawa has a nice way to share her story
10. Andrea Hirata
He is my favorite Indonesian author. I really enjoy his writing style and his light but meaningful story.
She is an Indonesian backpacker who had visited a lot of countries. I like the way she tells her backpacking experience
12. Natsuo Kirino
Her book called Out had captured my attention and how I wish to read her other work
13. J.K Rowling
Well, she deserved to be in this list despite the fact that I probably won’t read her books anymore because the way she ended Harry Potter. Book 6 and 7 were too disappointing.
Happy Thursday Thirteen 🙂 I am going to close this post with the poster of my most anticipated movie of 2012
