Believe it or not, there are actually "best-selling" authors that I do like. The first to come to mind are Patricia Cornwell and Gregory Maguire. I also enjoy Edgar Allan Poe and Jack London. Oh, and Robin Cook and Tess Gerritsen. And on and on and on...
2. Have you read everything he or she has written?
Patricia Cornwell, I had to stop.
Gregory Maguire, only his adult works.
Edgar Allan Poe, I've skipped some.
Jack London, only White Fang and Call of the Wild (White Fang is better), but would read more.
Robin Cook, working on it.
Tess Gerritsen, working on it.
Everyone else, I need some time for TV before I loose access in February.
3. Did you LIKE everything?
Cornwell, Scarpetta got too big for her britches.
Maguire, in order of best to worst: Wicked, Mirror Mirror, Son of a Witch, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and you can just skip Lost altogether...pooh wee! Haven't hit his latest yet.
As for the rest...I've liked everything so far! Fingers crossed!
4. How about a least favorite author?
It's got to be that guy who wrote Dali & I. Yeah, I know his name...oh, man...why'd ya havta bring that up! I'm mad all over again now!!!
Oh, yeah! I'm about over this whole Stephanie Meyer thing too! In all fairness, however, I haven't read her books.
And before you hit that comment button, I've also never seen an episode of "Seinfeld", "The Simpsons" or "Buffy" and I'm over them too...Go ahead, begin the flogging NOW!!!
5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?
I want to like every author whose work I read. I guess the most disappointing was Robert Rankin. He was recommended to me due to my enjoyment of The Eyre Affair series. Ooh! CrapORama! I forgot Jasper Fforde! I didn't care for the last the last book in that series or the first book in his Nursery Crimes series, but the rest are GREAT! (Way to stay on topic) Anyway Rankin didn't work for me. sad.
So did you notice my marketing genius in linking to my other blog. Not once. But twice! I swear, I wasn't even planning to, but then, since those were the first books that came to mind, I thought, "Why not, dag-nab-it? Let the people see what I'm talking about!"
That's right. It's for you, I do what I do!
Alrighty, then...I really shouldn't be allowed on the computer in the middle of the night...
