William Shakespeare

The Tempest (No Fear Shakespeare)  Julius Caesar (No Fear Shakespeare)  A Midsummer Night's Dream

I have only read Romeo & Juliet and Macbeth but i have seen a bunch of unabridged plays and loved them. The above are three plays that I’ve been dying to read, especially Julius Caeser.

Becky Albertalli

The Upside of Unrequited

Last year Becky Albertalli released her debut novel Simon Vs The Homo Sapien’s Agenda, it was amazing and I totally recommend you guys pick it up. Her new book The Upside of Unrequited came out April 11th, I haven’t read it yet but rest assured I will get to it soon.

She also has a book coming out next year, it’s supposed to be a spinoff of Simon, so I am very excited!

Brandon Sanderson

Warbreaker (Warbreaker, #1) The Way of Kings, Part 1 (The Stormlight Archive #1.1) Elantris

Brandon Sanderson is my favourite author, yet I’ve only read seven of his books (Mistborn & Steelheart). The above are three books by him that I own, and really want to get to. Warbreaker and Elantris are both the first books in different series but were released so long ago that I question whether or not a book 2 will ever be a thing. However, The Way of Kings already has 2 books out, with the third coming out this year. I really want to read this series but it’s meant to be a ten book series and each book only comes out every two or three years so I’m not too sure when I’m actually going to start it.

Rick Riordan

The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1) The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #2) The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo, #2)

I have read quite a few of Riordan’s books over the years. However, there is one trilogy that I’ve been meaning to read ever since the first book came out. Although, for whatever reason I haven’t even started the trilogy yet.

Laini Taylor

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1)

I read Laini Taylor’s previous trilogy a few years ago and really enjoyed it. However, I read Strange the Dreamer, her 2017 novel earlier this month andwhile I didn’t LOVE it, I did enjoy it more than I thought I would. I feel like this new series has some geat potential so I can’t wait to continue it.

  1. Same with Becky Albertalli and Rick Riordan! I still need to finish off the Heroes of Olympus series! 🙈 And I’ve yet to read Strange the Dreamer, even though I really want to! 😄

    • Ahhh you haven’t finished HOO yet?? Don’t worry about it, there are pretty mixed reviews for the last book so I understand the hesitation. I did enjoy Strange The Dreamer overall so I hope you enjoy it when you get to it.

  2. Ah I also picked Shakespeare for my T5W 😀 I’ve read Hamlet, and I really recommend you to read it! And gosh you MUST read The Stormlight Archive, everyone who’s read it loved it and couldn’t read fantasy for a while because you just can’t let go of it. I’m updating like every day on Sanderson’s webpage to see how far he’s come on the third book :’) But yeah I understand your hesitation. I also hope you’ll enjoy more of Riordan’s books 😀 I love the Magnus Chase series, but I connect a lot with norse mythology (swedish, so grew up with it) so that may have a bit with it to do :’) x

    • I’ve been meaning to pick up Hamlet for soo long, I’m hoping to get to it soon! I know I have to read The Stormlight Archive, I’ll probably give in and start it anyway. I’m really excited for Magnus Chase, I’m hoping to be able to marathon the trilogy when the last book comes out later this year!

  3. I should definitely read more Shakespeare but I never get to it… I’m not used to reading plays and it makes me feel awkward. Maybe if I try to read it and then watch an adaptation and sort of combine the two it’ll work better… who knows..

    • I definitely recommend reading Much Ado About Nothing if you’re not sure about where to start. It’s really easy to understand. I would alsl recommend watching the David Tennant and Catherine Tate version kf the play (it’s hilarious), I think a few scenes are on YouTube.

  4. I really need to try Brandon Sanderson and Laini Taylor.
    Not to copy your question but… do you have a favourite Shakespeare piece – poem or play?
