Do you ever see tons of people enjoying something super popular, and you just think, “I wish I liked that too?” That’s the case for me with these authors.
Five Authors I Wish I Liked
(Because Everyone Else Does)
5. Tim Ferriss (Author of The 4 Hour Week)
Is it just me, or do all of Tim Ferriss’ books weigh 50 pounds? Hahaha I really wish I liked this do-it-all author. But his way of accumulating (seemingly) random knowledge in each book keeps me from enjoying him.
When I read a Tim Ferriss book, I feel like I’m listening to a child chattering after eating his entire bag of Halloween candy. My husband loves these, so it’s not like he’s a bad author. It’s just… I can’t.
4. Dan Brown (Author of The DaVinci Code)
I did like The DaVinci Code, and read it quickly when it first came out. But every Dan Brown book after that has left me feeling… unsatisfied. The books build to a crescendo that never comes.
It was when I read Inferno that I gave up on Dan Brown. The book builds up, which made me expect an explosive climax (giggidy). However, it ends in the most unethical dud I’ve ever seen in a book. The ending is such a crime against humanity and cruel… and that was with the “good guys” winning!!
3. Harlan Coben (Author of The Stranger)
I’ll be honest– I still read Harlan Coben books, just not as much as I used to. Once I figured out “the formula,” the books became a little predictable. I recently enjoyed The Stranger.
His books are like watching an action movie, or chewing bubble gum. It’s fun for a while, and that’s alright. Stop reading if you don’t want a spoiler: the fake pregnant belly thing in The Stranger was a bit of a reach…
2. Neil Gaiman (Author of everything you know already! Haha)
I do like Neil Gaiman, I just wish I enjoyed him more. People seem to read his books and leave fascinated, with a smile on their face. I’m still reading through Trigger Warning, and I bought that right when it came out.
I know, I know. I suck because I don’t love Neil Gaiman 😆 But #1 on my list will really ruffle some feathers…
1. Stephen King
Yeah, I really do not like Stephen King. I find his books outdated, under-edited, and full of boring descriptions. Sir, I know what clouds look like. Unless there is something special about them, just say “clouds.”
Perhaps I don’t like horror, perhaps I don’t like long drawn-out descriptions. Who knows? I can’t love every book, and I certainly don’t love his books.
Is your favorite author on this list?
