Friday Fun Facts~ Mixing it Up & You Tell Me!

I have been posting information on random authors; old, new, famous, local, and everything in between. I am curious as to who your favorite author is? I have been reading for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, it was The Boxcar Children, Alfred Hitchcock and the 3 Investigators, and Encyclopedia Brown. Then it was random scary horror paperbacks, and whatever my English College Prep teachers told me I had to read.

Can you believe I was almost 40 years old before I ever read “Of Mice and Men”? My school must have took it off the list, because my older siblings read it.

Then it was history books; mainly the Civil War and anything about Abraham Lincoln. I am obsessed, please do not ask me why because I do not know! (I have a piece of Mary Todd Lincoln’s dress, just so you know).

Then Harry Potter changed my life. Finally, a book that I wanted to read over-and-over again; and I did. Yes, I read Twilight more times than I can count. I have 3 bookshelves of nothing but James Patterson books 🙂 I do not know how he manages to put out a book a month, but it sure seems like he does!

So who is it that you read and cannot put down? I am looking for new books to read, even if they are old books! So let me know what I should pick up next: I would love to read it and see how I felt about it!

    If you haven’t yet read the Chronicles of Narnia, I highly recommend them, it’s not all magic and wonderland, there are stories beyond the Pevensies that are worth reading. In that same vein, I’m addicted to all things Rick Riordan. He has colorful characters and the blending of myth and reality is perfect.
    For classics, the original Dracula is amazing, so is anything by Austen, I cannot put her down.
    And if you like Patterson, try Koontz if you haven’t already 🙂

      I don’t know how I forgot to mention Narnia! Definitely books that I have read several times and will read several more. I have the Riordan Percy Jackson series and I have 2 autographed Koontz books that I have not opened yet. I have read a couple of his stories and definitely enjoy his writing.
