Alice Audrey

I keep hearing good things about Mercedes Lackey. I'll have to give her a try sometime.


We have several authors in common (Harris, Collins, Blume, Roberts...). I tried LKH but just couldn't get into her writing.

Americanising Desi

do try Khaled Hosseini if you havent... He writes really touching pieces!

Not So Normal


no. 4 I remember reading on yahoonews that by 2052 (or some year before or after that) caucasians will no longer be a majority. no. 6 made me smile.

Sassy Brit (

Sorry to hear you in a sad mood - and about the root canal surgery - now wonder! Ouchie.

Hope you feel better soon. Great author list by the way! :)

Here is my Thursday 13

Hope you can drop by and say hello!



We have a lot of Fantasy/Urban Fantasy favorites in common and I think I may have heard of JK Rowling :)

My T13

Hootin' Anni

Romance and fantasy....they'd be on my daughter's list, but for me it's historical novels.

Great idea for a 13!!!

Here is my T-13 Notable Irish
[scroll down below my Thursday Thunks]


Rowling? Who's that!? LOL.

Janet Lindskold, Tamara Pierce, Juliet Marillier are three fantasy writers I love. Pierce is a Y.A. writer so she'd fit two categories!

Adelle Laudan

These are all great authors. I suggest you check out Maeve Binchy, she has remained one of my favorites for many, many years.
Sorry to hear you're sad. Sending warm cyber (((hugs))) your way.
Happy T13!


Louisa May Alcott and Laura Ingalls Wilder are still 1 and 2 for me. As far as book to take in a fire, that would be one of my old chemistry / science books from late 1800's / early 1900's (not sure which I would pick, but probably Nanny's old school book.)

Julia Smith

'Outlander. My house catches fire and I can only take one book - this comes with me when I run.'

LOL! - me, too!

I haven't read the Sookie Stackhouse series but I'm a True Blood devotee. And I've read one Mercedes Lackey, which I adored - Firebird. I'll check out your recommendation.

Hope you're feeling better, Journeywoman.


Natalie Goldberg and Daniel Quinn came to mind. I read all of Vonneguet and Ursula LeGuin at one time.


I forgot about a few of those. thanks


Sorry you are having a rough day. Thanks for so many great ideas here. And I used to love Janet Evanovitch, but the last 2-3 Stephanie Plum books have been nothing but going-through-the-motions rehash. Really, something new needs to happen with her characters!

Susan Helene Gottfried

Ooh, you've got some GREAT reads here. I have to agree: I wasn't keen on the first Sookie book -- Bill left me cold (no pun intended) but the middle of the series was awesome.

I blog about books all the time. Feel free to drop in (or visit my Rocks 'n Reads blog, which is all about books and writer news) if you'd ever like to chat books.


I felt the same about the first Sookie book. I thought the books got better as they went along, though.

Some of my favorites are Alice Hoffman, Nora Roberts, and Rowling.

I hope you feel better soon.


*sends happy silly vibes your way*

Yeah. Same with you on the first Sookie book. I need to catch the series, though. Looks fun.

Fave authors? Uh...Alexander Key, for one. Nancy Atherton, Charlotte MacLeod, Susan Cooper, Laurie R. King, Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Mertz, Debbie Viguie...I'd better stop here. YOu get the idea.
