It's Friday! Time To Hop And Follow!!

I have found another follow that I'll be participating in along with the hop!  That makes 2 for me.  I just love these, you meet so many wonderful book friends :)



This Hop is hosted by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books, and it runs through the weekend, so if you can't today, hop on tomorrow!  Just remember, visit some of the blogs and get to know em, if you start to follow tell em you met them through the hop!

This weeks ? -

Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they're your favorites!

One of my favorite authors is Stephen King.  I know sounds so cliche, right?  Well I started reading him when I was in my late teens and I just loved how he could scare the pants offa me!!  I guess you could say he was my first author love, I would chomp through his books like a demon.

Who else do I love, Charlaine Harris, without a doubt.  For a long period of time, I'd say about 5 years,  I couldn't sit still enough to read.  It would take me 1-2 months to get through a book because I'd read during my dd's tennis lessons on Saturday and that's it.  When we discovered True Blood on HBO during season 1 my dd said these are books Mama and I want them for Christmas.  Well the 2 of us zooked through them books like a house on fire!!!  I thank Miss Charlaine for bringing my love back full swing.  Oh my, J.R.Ward and dem Brothers, holy moly!!  I just love Vishous, and I read Covet, not to shabby so far.  That gals style is just different, she brands left and right, the Escalades, and the Rolex watches, Kanye blasting on the player.  Her slang is also a bit much, I just don't see Wells saying here's the sitch ; ) but, the woman's got b@lls in her writing and I love it.  Jeanienne Frost, hands down her character Bones is just amazing.  She has crafted a character so real I can hear that vamp's Brit accent whispering in my ear!  For me when an author accomplishes that they are supreme in their talent.  Love Patricia Cornwell, the Scarpetta series never disappoints me.

I could probably go on and on, hhhmmm, are there any authors that any just can't stand?  I can't think of one of the top of my head....

  1. Hi Paula, I've ended up at your place via parajunkee's bloghop and I've bcome a brand new follower *smiles* I love the look and feel of your blog and your reading Gabaldon right now...I read OUTLANDER not so long ago and LURVED it. What an epic historical romance, the only fact that's keeping me from devouring them all at once is the fact the books are 500+ thick *eek*

    As for my favorite authors? I have so many who rock my bookworld; Anne Bishop, she has awesome characters and world building but Daemon, Lucivar & Saetan really do it for me *thud* Shannon Mckenna with her McCloud series; great suspense, great romance great smut, she's just flat-out...great :) Nalini SIngh with her Guild Hunter & Psy/Changeling series; shapeshifters and angels..NS has got an addictive voice and characters who rock. Joey W Hill with her complete backlist; She writes intricate and layered characters with sultry sexing. kresley Cole with her IAD series; Out of this world characters, fabulous humor and an overall story arc that has you pining for more each single release. C.L. Wilson with her Tairen Soul series; Romance-Fantasy doesn't get any better then that!

    I can go on and on about more fantastic authors on my shelves but thought to give you just a few ;) Have a good friday!!
