Books and Waffles Alphabetical: K

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Favorite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading. I don’t really have any answers for this prompt, so instead, I’m completing another alphabetical post.

Rules:

  • Credit Alex for the idea, and link back
  • Post at your own pace, do as many or as few letters as you want
  • Post your favourite authors, books and characters (ABCs) for a particular letter of the alphabet

K was surprisingly easy to find authors, books, and characters for. I did “cheat” a little and use an author’s first name, but at this point, I’m not strictly sticking to only last names.

Authors

Amie Kaufman: After reading the Illuminae Files, I marked Amie Kaufman as an author to keep my eye on. I did try to read another book she wrote without Jay Kristoff and didn’t finish it, though.

Kimberly Brubaker Bradley: She is the author of The War that Saved My Life and The War I Finally Won, two beautiful books about a young girl during World War II trying to recover from a lifetime of abuse and neglect. These books broke my heart but are so, so important to add to the conversation.

K (1)

Jay Kristoff: Again, like Amie Kaufman, the Illuminae Files solidified my opinion of Jay Kristoff. I really need to read The Nevernight Chronicles.

Books

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo: While this isn’t my favorite Bardugo book, I quite enjoyed it. Nikolai is my favorite Bardugo character and this one has immense lady power and a talking dragon and so much bizarre stuff I can hardly believe it’s actually a book. I love it.

King’s Folly by Jill Williamson: This was the first Jill Williamson book I read, and I loved it. The world-building, the characters, the chaos—all of it was so well down and I was impressed. The rest of the series could fit on this list too since the titles are King’s Blood and King’s War.

K (2)

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness: I knew before I even read this book I’d love it. And I did. It was so intense and interesting I didn’t even realize how long of a book it was until I finished. I need to read the sequels soon.

Characters

Kamala Khan from Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson: Kamala Khan is one of my favorite superheroes ever. She’s so funny and ridiculous, and I love how much she fangirls over the other superheroes. But her story is also important in providing diversity and understanding of other cultures and lifestyles than my own.

08-13-19

Mr. Knightley from Emma by Jane Austen: Mr. Knightley is my favorite Austen hero. I love how gentle he is with Emma but also that he’s willing to be honest with her as well. He’s sweet and dependable and just… the best.

Kyon from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa: I love all the characters from Haruhi, but Kyon’s sass is the best. Plus, he’s the main character—how could I not love him? (Though, it’s interesting to note his name isn’t Kyon. We don’t know his real name!)

What books, characters, and authors do you love that being with the letter K?
