The Xarrokian people are happy to present the talented author and creative spirit of Mr. Joseph Eastwood

Favorite Author? Not Possible, this is why:

I don’t believe that anyone can have a favourite book or a favourite author, nobody can be so dedicated to a book or an author, it’s just impossible, or well, it’s like those girls (typically) who are constantly talking about some band and getting into bitchy arguments because of a comment that someone made about another band member. And people are judgey, that’s why I don’t have favourite books or authors, in fact, usually my favourite author is the one that I’m reading at the time, similarly with favourite book.


The above paragraph might not have made much sense, but I’m sure that you got the gist. So at the moment guys, my favourite author is Suzanne Collins, and my favourite book is Catching Fire, because that’s what I’m reading at the moment, and I love her writing, but what I love more is her description of food… that woman can make my belly grumble even when it’s been fed.


To pad this guest post out I’ll tell you about some of the authors on my bookshelf. So, we have Trudi Canavan and The Magician’s Guild, probably one of the first proper books that I read and I remember staying up late at night, sitting on the landing so that I could read it under the light. She’s a really good writer and I love the world that she’s created, if you ever get the chance to pick up a Trudi Canavan book, go for it. I have a small collection of Stephen King books, not the biggest fan of his writing, but a huge fan of his success. I also have quite a few of Charlaine Harris’ books. I regrettably have quite a few PC & Kristen Cast books, and I hate THEM (but I’ll have to leave that for blog post) because they are messed up, and they have created some of the WORST characters in fiction that I’ve read. I’ll just list them now, this is getting quite long: Christopher Poalini, L. J. Smith, J.K. Rowling, William Shakespeare, Sara Shepard, Heather Brewer… okay, I have a lot more than that, it’s just I’m in the middle of packing them all away and it’s pretty dark right now.


I feel like I’ve definitely done my fair share of book/author ranting, and this was supposed to be a happy post! Ha! Have a great day!


Who populates your book shelves?

Is there a book you could read over and over?
