Your Favourite Writer

William Shakespeare

 

William Shakespeare

 

Reasons: I don't really have a favourite writer. There are a few authors where I will buy more than one of their books, but I can't necessarily say that I've read all of the books from those few authors that I bought. I just picked Shakespeare because I love the majority of his plays, I find his poetry stunning and he's actually quite clever. I also focus a lot on Early Modern/Renaissance literature in university, even though I like to read from different periods (but, dear God, not the Restoration!).

 

Other writers (including manga-ka) whose work I enjoy and that I have read more than one of their books are (in no particular order):

- John Green

- Bret Easton Ellis

- J. K. Rowling

- George R. R. Martin

- E. M. Forster

- Watase Yuu

- Watsuki Nobuhiro

- Takahashi Rumiko

- Alan Bradley

 

(I think that's a long enough list for now).
