Go-To Authors

I love to read. It's right up there at the top of my list of favorite things to do. I was a reader long before I ever wrote the first word for my own books.

Along the way, I've discovered some wonderful authors, and some not-so-wonderful authors. We all have different reading tastes. You might hate an author I love, and vice versa. That's okay. There are plenty of wonderful books out there for all of us to enjoy.

I'm so lucky to be involved with the Sizzling Scribes. I truly love all their books. I know if I read a book by Arianna or Cait or Diana or Ruby or Tara or Tielle, it will be wonderful. I'll get lost in their worlds and characters and forget everything around me for a few hours of absolute bliss. When I'm ready to start a new book, I'll search for one of theirs first.

So now I'm in a quandary. I only have a few Scribes books left that I haven't read. Then what? Eek! Who do I read next?

I doubt if I'm different from most readers who have favorite authors, ones they go to when they want a really good book to read. Other than my Scribes sisters (who all need to write faster so I don't run out of their books to read), I'll turn to Nora Roberts, the Queen of Romance. I haven't read a book by her yet that I didn't enjoy.

Next on my go-to list is Jill Shalvis. I love Jill's humor, her hunky heroes, and her down-to-earth (and sometimes klutzy) heroines.

I also enjoy:
P.J. Alderman
Toni Blake/Lacey Alexander
Sandra Brown
Jaci Burton
Flo Fitzpatrick
Cindy Gerard
Angela Knight
Titania Ladley
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Jayne Rylon
Nikki Soarde
J.R. Ward
Caitlyn Willows
And so many others, I can't list all of them.

The feeling's mutual, Lynn! Your books are always must-buys for me. And not just 'cause I'm supporting a fellow Scribe, but because I enjoy the worlds you create and the people who inhabit them.

Btw, to piggyback on your sale, I also have books on sale for 25% off this week (shameless plug!)

Will have to check out some of the authors on your list. I haven't read some of them.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Linda Howard, Julie Garwood, Rachel Gibson, Tom Clancy and John Grisham are my go-to authors.

Great post.

What a great honor to be on that list of wonderful authors. Thanks for including me, Lynn. You and the Scribes are also on my auto-buy list, as well as many of your faves you noted. Ah, so many books, so little time... :0)

Hope everyone had a fab holiday weekend!
