Book Blogger Hop!!

It's that time again! The Book Blogger Hop is hosted every Friday by Jennifer at Crazy For Books; it's a chance for book bloggers to link up and explore blogs they might not have found otherwise.

We are getting to know our Book Blog Hoppers! This week's question:  Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

Here are some of my favorites:
Lois McMaster Bujold - She is my all-time FAVORITE author! I pretty much love everything she's written. I love the way she uses the english language, and the way her characters are sardonic and witty; and I love Love LOVE the way she approaches theology in her characters! Whether there's a clearly defined theistic system set up in her world or not, she lets everyone make their own peace with whatever God or Gods the universe is deemed to hold.
Jane Austen - My favorite thing to say about Jane Austen is that there's just something about her books - you're totally riveted, but when you put them down you realize that NOTHING is happening! She's the total master of the "and then he looked at me twice" angst that I love.
Michelle Jaffe - HiLARious!! Her Kitty books are the funniest things I've ever read -- and that's saying something! I can always count on her to make me laugh. :)
Catherine Gilbert Murdock - She is a recent find, and I'm SO glad I finally picked up her books! I desperately need to own her Dairy Queen trilogy; DJ is one of my favorite characters ever.
E. Lockhart - I'm in love with her approach to relationships (judging from the two books of hers I've read, Dramarama and Frankie). She knows about being a girl, and about being ok with who you are. Her girls do NOT need boyfriends just to be people -- and I LOVE that!

To all newcomers, thanks for visiting! Please leave a comment and let me know you stopped by!


  1. It sounds like Lockhart has "a fish without a bicycle is like a woman without a man" attitude. I love it!

    And you couldn't put the love of Jane Austen any better.

  2. Lovely blog. I'm going to hop around an check out more of it.

  3. Just hopping through. The author on your list that I have read is E. Lockhart, but I love her writing she is so funny and I have to be in a private place when I read her books otherwise people look at me funny cause I laugh so much. Oh yeah! I am a new follower as well.
    Check out my blog if you want, I am just getting started.


  4. I too am a huge fan of Lois Bujold. I have had a number of chances to sit down and talk with her. She is as fascinating in person as in print. Do you like Sharon Lee and Steve Miller's Liaden Universe books. I think they have a lot of the same positives as Bujold books. Happy reading!
