Booking Through Thursday

It's Thursday and therefore it is time for BTT, hosted by Booking Through Thursday. This weeks question is:


What book or author are you most thankful to have discovered? Have you read everything they’ve written? Reread them? Why do you appreciate them so much?


Blog-wise, I am really thankful for "discovering" Christopher Bunn and Daniel Arenson. I already mentioned them last Friday so this makes me seem kind of stalkerish, but their prose is simply great. I have reread all the books they sent me to review. In a way I guess, they discovered me, oh the irony. 


Other authors I am happy for knowing are J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Emily Bronte, Shakespeare, etc, etc.


How about you?


If you have the time: stop by my review of 'Hamlet' at the Young Vic, with Michael Sheen as the lead!

  4. Thank you for the kind compliment! It's certainly a two-way street, Juli. There's a staggering number of books being written and published these days. So many voices, and such limited time. Finding a reviewer who is willing to spend their time on the book of a stranger is a gift for a writer like myself.

    Anyway, besides Tolkien and Lewis, my tip-top favorite writers that I regularly re-read are GK Chesterton, George MacDonald (his fantasies, not his romances), Richard Powell, Wodehouse, Kingsley Amis, and Robert Taylor (Journey to Matecumbe).
