I love to read, but I’m terrible when it comes to trying new authors. I read the books that I have over and over, apart from the ones that I look at and wonder why I still have them. The authors I have the most books by are:
- Dick Francis
- Terry Pratchett
- Sue Grafton
- Stephen King
- Ellis Peters
I tend to cycle through these, with a sidestep to read Lord of the Rings every now and again, and maybe the Colin Dexter ones I have; until Morse’s pedantic ways annoy me, plus the Patricia Cornwell ones, until I find reading those in bed gives me unpleasant dreams! I have Thomas Harris ones, those are good. I have a few Dean Koontz still, but each time I read the remaining ones I tend to roll my eyes at them, lol. Got about 4 Iain Banks kicking around.
I suppose mystery/thrillers are more my thing than other genres, for non-fantasy stuff anyway (so glad the man in the secondhand bookstore here in town recommended Terry Pratchett to me all those years ago!) Can anyone recommend any authors that they think I might like?
Oh, I don’t have an e-reader, I’m a paper girl all the way
