Thursday Thirteen #1

Thursday 13 is another phenomenon that I’ve been observing (as in watching) around these parts–simply put, it’s a list of thirteen things, with the idea being that lists are a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Without any further ado, here’s my first list of 13…

Thirteen Authors I Love to Read (really, in no particular order)

1. Kurt Vonnegut
2. Anne Tyler
3. Janet Evanovich
4. Jodi Picoult
5. John Grisham
6. Stephen King
7. Jennifer Weiner
8. Barbara Kingsolver
9. Adriana Trigiani
10. Sue Monk Kidd
11. Judy Blume
12. James Patterson
13. Amy Tan

What are some of your favorite authors?? I’d love to get a book list together to focus on for 2008!

  1. James P I agree with! I’m reading Anne Tyler now – I think you told me about her. I’m starting with Digging to America. And I tried Jodi Picoult after reading another blogger’s suggestion…. LIked her fine.

    Next on my list is more MIchael Ondaatje (author of The English Patient), then The Namesake by Hjumpa Lahiri then re-reading an old favorite movie – Far Pavilions.

  2. Oh, and I really really do love reading Anita Shreve…..

    My favorite way of picking books lately has been to go to our library’s new book/new arrivals section. They have separate shelves for the newest books they’ve received in their collection. I just browse through there and pick things out…

  3. All of yours, plus Elizabeth Berg, Kaye Gibbons, Alexander McCall Smith, Jane Heller, Olivia Goldsmith, Susan Isaacs, Carl Hiassen, Edna Buchanan (last 2 are funny FL writers).
