Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop: July 9 - July 12

The weekend is here and that means it's time for BOOK BLOGGER HOP!

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books. This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!

This week's question: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

  • James Patterson - I love the short chapters and the suspense. Alex Cross is my favorite series.
  • Mary Higgins Clark - started reading her in high school and haven't stopped.
  • Wendy Corsi Staub - reminds me of MHC. Also I love that all her plots are thrilling and I can never figure them out!
  • Emily Giffin - has a way of writing that makes it seem as though you're being told a story instead of reading a story. LOVE THAT!
  • Jodi Picout - tackles difficult subject matters and always leaves me thinking long after I close the book.
  • Harlan Coben - can write a great, suspenseful novel. Not to mention he's very likable (and funny) in person.
New to the list:
  • Allison Winn Scotch - loved all of her books. Excited to read The One That I Want.
  • Katherine Center - Loved Get Lucky, my first read by her. She can really write a good - read real with feeling - story.
  • Sarah Pekkanen - Her debut, The Opposite of Me, was fantastic. While reading, I felt as though I was catching up with an old friend. Anxiously waiting for her follow-up novel.

If you discovered my blog through the Book Blogger Hop, please let me know. I will also stop by your blog.

ENJOY THE WEEKEND!

  6. I agree completely about Piccoult. Her topics never cease to amaze me (although I always feel as if I'm reading the Lifetime Movie books channel, lol).

    You should check out Tana French if you like mysteries. *le wonderful*
