As hardcore bookworms we always come across great books. But how often is it that we come across many books by the same author that are equally amazing? And the authors also tend to be super cool people? The answer (for us at least) is “rarely” but that doesn’t mean there aren’t enough to be put into a top 5 category.
So here’s our list of authors we look up to. Because if we can write stories like them, our life would be set!*
*Completely ignores the fact that just writing really good books doesn’t mean fame because the publishing industry is a fire maze.
#1 Maggie Stiefvater
Tell me the truth! Did you really think she wouldn’t be on our list?? Honestly, this is such a recurring theme and we don’t regret it one bit. The way she writes her characters and her writing style is just so mesmerizing. You should totally study her books.
#2 Rick Riordan
He’s been our all time favourite. An author who does diversity right because he knows just HOW important it is for young kids to see themselves in books. We love you Uncle Rick!
We love her! Who doesn’t? Harry Potter is the kind of book that has stuck with an entire generation of kids and it will continue to do so. Being able to learn the way she puts together her characters and plots would be of so much help!
#4 Brandon Sanderson
Again, no surprise here. But still, he deserves a special mention for all the amazing author tips and videos he has out there on the wide web. He’s always happy to give budding writers useful advice when it comes to writing.
Here’s a link to where you can find some for yourself!
#5 Elif Batuman
This Turkish-American author is a special Beez request. She is absolutely in LOVE with The Idiot by Elif Batuman and keeps ranting about how she aspires to write books like her. Needless to say, I’m super pumped to read and review them for you guys soon.
That’s our list! Let us know if you agree and if you’ve written your own T5W then don’t forget to drop us a link down in the comments~
This is Raven and Beez,

You know how sometimes you read a book and you just know that this book will forever hold a special place in your heart? It’s such a strong feeling that being the loners that we are we also vow to make everyone read it including our unborn children. And so this Tuesday we would like to share with you, a list of 10 books that we would definitely be making our kids read.
Today’s topic is one that we hardly ever discuss because we are not quick to make a fictional character our boyfriend/girlfriend. Instead, we adopt them… But nevertheless, here’s a list of 5 of our book boyfriends and 5 book girlfriends.
Today’s topic is also a super interesting one because we never really realize just HOW much we are influenced by the people around us, especially with the internet. There are numerous ways that news of some book or so gets to us and before we know it, we’ve read it and joined a cult.
So today we will be sharing with you guys 5 of our favourite books that we read because we saw someone else raving about it.

It’s been so long since we’ve done a Top 5 Wednesday. We’ve had a super busy year so far but this topic is just so good that we couldn’t pass it up.
So today we’ll be telling you about 5 books that you should be going in blindly because they are just THAT good.
We decided to do this book tag after the fabtastic @Paperfury did it over at her blog. Go check out her blog if you haven’t already!
1. WHAT BOOK HAS BEEN ON YOUR SHELVES THE LONGEST?
Raven: I had to look at my goodreads shelf for this and apparently Son of Sobek by Rick Riordan has been on my shelf since January 4, 2014…
Let’s be honest… we weren’t tagged to do this but we were desperate to talk about ourselves. Also, Holly said “YOU” at the end of her tags so excuse me but who are we to pass over an opportunity?
We were inspired to do this tag after we saw Holly, over @Nutfreenerd do it. Check her fabulous blog if you haven’t already!
And we really tried to find out who made this tag first but we couldn’t, so whoever made this tag… hey there.
Here come the questions:
Thank you all so much! We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for your undying support for all the crap we put up on this blog. Even when we disappeared for a month (Well we were in a place away from the internet…) you people still stuck with us. So thank you!
This is Beez and I after we got the notification
Joint review!!! We haven’t done one in such a long time, we almost don’t remember how to do it. Haha! Kidding, we don’t remember at all…
Beez: This is my first Sanderson book. My other half (read: Raven), adores Sanderson to a large (understatement) extent and has so many of his books! In fact she gave me one because she had two copies?
Raven: To be clear, there was a HUGE sale on his books and I got so excited that I accidentally bought two copies of the same book (Book Two part one of the Way of Kings I think). It’s a mistake I don’t fully regret.
Hello my book fellas! It’s our one year anniversary today!
*screams with joy and flips around like a dolphin*
I can’t believe it’s been a year since we started talking about books and stuff. A year since we met all of you guys here on this beautiful bloggy world, life in plastic, it’s fantastic… what…*
