Every other Thursday (lies...it's Friday and idk when the last time we did one of these posts but ideally this was the plan) at The Broke & The Bookish is A Cocktail Conversation time. One of the TB&TB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.
This week the question is:
Who is one author who you are just DYING for them to release a new book?
Ania Ahlborn -- I've read every single one of her horror novels, and I will not stop now. She never fails to creep me out by placing a spin on old school horror. No frills, just thrill.
Ernest Cline -- I loved Ready Player One and Armada, but I need more. I have to more. Where are you, Ernest?
Gillian Flynn -- I need some more effed up psychological thrillers to devour. Gone Girl came out, what, five years ago?? You can't tell me that she's out of ideas after only three books. I want more!!
Jandy Nelson -- The two books she has out are on my all time faves list and I just NEED more from her. I'll Give You The Sun was especially brilliant and I know brilliance probably takes time but OMG THE WAAAAAAIT KILLS ME. I thought I might die between The Sky Is Everywhere and I'll Give You The Sun and I don't even want to look to see how far out the next one is. Time to reread probably! In this industry I feel like books are coming out quicker and quicker and I appreciate that some authors can't write at that pace so this isn't a complaint...just an I LOVE HER BOOKS SO DAMN MUCH AND AM DYING FOR MORE.
What about you guys??? What authors are you just like, "OMG PLEASE GIMME MORE BOOKS ALREADY!"
I definitely agree with George RR Martin! It has been far too long!ReplyDelete
Agree with Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl was THE most diabolical plot I have ever read! Also with Deborah Harkness, enjoyed the All Souls Trilogy a lot.ReplyDelete
I'd like to see another book from ...
Marie Bostwick in her series Cobbled Court Quilts.
Katherine Neville - another sequel to The Eight and Fire.
Kate Mosse - next in her Labyrinth series
Sarah Addison Allen - anything she wants to write!
I adore Jasper Fforde and his book Shades of Grey (not the 50 kind). He has said that it's a trilogy but it's been over 2 years and no sign of book 2.ReplyDelete
I'm waiting for Deborah Crombie and Julie Spencer-Fleming!!!!+ReplyDelete
Slowpokes, but worth the wait (1-2 years)
LAINI TAYLOR. At least I know another book is coming out in the fall, but sometimes I just think that the wait will never end! x.xReplyDelete
Kristin Cashore! I wish I could read all her books again for the first time.ReplyDelete
I second Bridget's answer of Gillian Flynn! She released that novella, The Grownup, but it was only ok. I'm dying for another novel from her!ReplyDelete
I need more GRRM too!!!! Dying over here!! I also reeeeeally want another book from Kristin Cashore (Graceling trilogy) and Madeline Miller (The Song of Achilles). They all write so slowly because their words are so gorgeous I guess ;) Also Lindsay Barraclough (Long Lankin and The Mark of Cain)- her books are SO chilling and creepy, I can't wait to see what she'll write next.ReplyDelete
I didn't finish the 3rd All Souls book but I'm tempted to try it again. I loved the first two a lot!
I didn't even realize it was already 5 years since Gone Girl! I don't want more books by authors compared to Gillian Flynn, I want ACTUAL Gillian Flynn!ReplyDelete
