I am a reader. I enjoy reading (I’m sure you couldn’t tell from my book reviews). My absolute favorite books to read are those written by Jane Austen. I love the manners, the dancing, the struggles and the end result. “Pride and Prejudice” is the one book I read at least once a year and “Persuasion” is my second favorite writing of Austen’s. I love that it takes almost eight years before the hero and heroine of this book get their happy ending because not everything in life goes as we plan.
Now, I am definitely a bigger fan of fiction than I am on non-fiction. I love the escape from the real world and the ability to live in someone else’s life for a little while. Some of my favorite authors are Jude Devearaux, Nora Roberts, James Patterson, John Grisham, Ted Dekker and Robert Ludlum. And I am always looking for other authors I enjoy reading. I have a tendency to find an author I like and then read through all of their books.
Quidditch was mentioned in my “Q” title but I have not yet read the “Harry Potter” series. I plan to get to it at some point but right now, with the popularity and the movies, I feel like I know too much about it. I would like to be surprised when I read it.
Who are your favorite authors? Any recommendations?
