A is for … Authors

AAs a child, I devoured the books of Enid Blyton and can still recall the stories from the St Clare’s and Malory Towers’ series.

Even before that I was a devoted reader, but Enid Blyton is the first author that I remember searching for in the local library. From that point on, books became an essential part of life.

I’m sorry to say that I don’t yet have a particular favourite Spanish author, not one that I keep returning to, but I’m sure that day will come soon. I’m still a sucker for a J.K Rowling or Jo Nesbo story (which I have read in Spanish – I know …. shame on me!) I tend to prefer mystery thrillers or fantasy tales, but am open-minded enough to try other genres.

That said, I am more likely to consider  the offerings of Indie authors these days too, as these have  proven to be a veritable treasure trove in recent years. In 2014 alone, I already have two new favourite authors to follow:   Robert Bailey (The Professor) and Gabrielle Arrowsmith (Concealed in the Shadows)

It’s going to be a very good year – positively vintage methinks, and I owe it all to Enid Blyton.

  1. Without authors where would we be? Hi I’m visiting from Smurfin’ The Web during ther A-Z. I have to admit that I am not much of a reader these days as an adult, but as a child I read everything. I remember Blyton and for me she served a purpose until I was old enough to move onto something else. Good luck with the rest of the challenge =)

  2. My most favourite children’s book was and is The Magical Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. My Son bought me the three book set for Christmas the year before last, and I still love it to this day.
    Great post! 🙂
