Hall of Fame

Welcome to, the rather grandly titled, Savidge Reads Hall of Fame. This is a page that I will slowly but surely update with all of my favourite authors as I read more of the works of authors I already love and as I discover new books along the way. This will encourage me to read all the books by my favourite authors and may lead you to some new authors if you like most of the ones that I like, if that makes sense. You will find the links to the novels I have already read and reviewed of theirs below too.

  2. Such a great idea for a page!

  3. Have just picked up ‘Cement Garden’ myself and can’t wait to find a moment to delve into it. Any other authors you have planned for your hall of fame? de Maurier, for instance?
