For letter T, I’ve collated some of my favourite quotes from one of the most beloved fantasy writers of all time, Terry Pratchett. I am currently making my way through the Discworld series.
For letter S, I’ve chosen actor, comedian and writer Stephen Fry, who I think is one of the wittiest people alive. I read Making History several years ago and found it utterly brilliant, which led me to read Fry’s autobiography of his first two decades, Moab is my Washpot. Mythos and Heroes are on my TBR list.
For letter R, I’ve chosen one of my favourite children’s authors, Roald Dahl. I loved Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and Danny, Champion of the World when I was younger and now I have the pleasure of reading them to my daughter.
For letter Q, I’ve gathered together some of my favourite quotes from quick reads such as short stories, comics and novellas.
For letter P, I’ve compiled some quotes from some of my favourite poets, including Philip Larkin, T. S Eliot, Maya Angelou, Edgar Allen Poe and Spike Milligan.
For letter O, I’ve chosen dystopian author George Orwell. I borrowed my grandad’s copy of Animal Farm when I was about 14, and though I didn’t fully understand the political allegory, I found it very interesting.
For letter N, I’ve chosen fantasy author Neil Gaiman. It’s unusual for me to watch a film before reading the book, but that’s what happened with both Stardust and Coraline.
For letter M, I’m focusing on Maggie Stiefvater, another of my auto-buy fantasy authors. I enjoyed the Wolves of Mercy Falls series as a teen, then the Raven Cycle series as a young adult, and more recently I discovered The Scorpio Races.
