30 Days About Me - Day 4 - Favorite Book

30 Days About Me

Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni is graciously hosting a 30-day meme to help us all get to know each other better.  She has a theme for each day so that we can post something about ourselves.  There are a good number of us participating so far.  I'm excited to get to know more about my fellow bloggers and also to let others know more about me.

Day 4 - Favorite Book

I'm glad this is not school and I am not being graded, because I am not being able to follow the rules very well.  I picked multiple songs and multiple movies.  I followed the rules for one day with a favorite tv show, but now I am about to break them again because....I don't have a favorite book.  There are too many books out there for me to read the same one twice.  So while I have a few favorite authors, I don't have one favorite book.  Below are a few of my favorite authors, and some of my favorite books by those authors.

1. Danielle Steel - I always love her books.  They are so well written and the stories always instantly draw me in.  One of my favorites by her is Bungalow 2.  The book is about Tanya Harris - a woman who goes from being a suburban mom to being a screenwriter in Hollywood.  A fantastic story about the choices moms have to make!

2. James Patterson - I love how quickly I can read his book.  The 2-4 page chapters are about all I can take since the chapters are so intense.  Cross Country is an awesome book in the Alex Cross series.  It takes Alex all the way to Africa.  This book was one of his most graphic that I have ever it is not for the faint at heart.

3. J.D. Robb (Yes I know this is Nora Roberts) - I love the "In Death" series that Nora Roberts writes as J.D. Robb.  At this point, I almost feel like I know the main character - Lieutenant Eve Dallas.  One of my most recent favorites by her was Fantasy in Death.  I think I love it so much because it is about a virtual reality video game gone wrong...and I love video games!

Who are your favorite authors / do you have any favorite books?

I have yet to read a J.D. Robb but keep thinking I need to. I love mysteries and my sister always tells me how good these are!

Gosh, I used to read so much Danielle Steel, but I haven't in ages. I'll have to check that one out. Thanks for the link to the meme, it sounds like a great idea!

Ooh- I think that Bungalow 2 sounds great!

JD Robb's In Death could go on indefinitely and I would still be reading it. I love Eve and her co-horts and each time a new book comes out, it's like going to a family reunion seeing friends. Fantasy in Death was a great one and one that had me totally in the dark till the end.
