David Eddings….The Belgariad and Malorean series
Donald E. Westlake – Dortmunder series
Lawrence Sanders & Vincent Lardo…Absolutely miss The McNally series. I think I will just reread all of them if I can get them from the library. <3
Olivia Goldsmith, Maeve Binchy and so many others I can’t think of now.
Anne George “Southern sisters series”, Bruce Alexander “Blind Justice” is the first book in his series.
Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott and of course, the one and only Sidney Sheldon.
Sue Grafton passed recently & with it the alphabet ends with “Y.”
@Joan , yes, she had cancer. ?
@Michele I just read it on Bing. I’m devastated. She was one of my most favorite authors.
I know! I’m still early on in the alphabet, but I just love Kinsey. I’m so sorry there won’t be a “Z.”
Ivan Doig and Stieg Larsson
So many to add to my reading list!
Good idea since we won’t be reading their books anymore unfortunately. 🙁
Just thought of Colleen McCullough (The Thorn Birds which is my all time favorite book of all times) and Andrew Greeley.
The Bronte sisters
Original author of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (the estate hired someone to write sequels).
Edgar Allan Poe!
Anne George. I cannot get the “Southern Sisters” out of my head.
Margaret Mitchell (Gone With the Wind).
Leo Frankowski… who died way to young.
Desmond Bagley…James Herbert,,Tom Clancey
Anton Chekhov — dude had serious talent and died way too young. ?
I love everything he wrote!
Agatha christie, Charles Dickens and Enid Blyton are my first picks and they’ve already been mentioned so I’m gonna say JRR Tolkein, C.S.Lewis, Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker.
Have you read C S Lewis’s master, George MacDonald?
And I definitely agree about Lewis, Tolkien and Dickens!
My wife says Graham Masterton
Ursala K.Le Guin
Robert E Howard
Edgar Rice Burroughs
sylvia plath among others
@Sharon Read all he wrote!
@Mike . The Last Plainsman is my favorite. Have read it numerous times.
I love how he talked?
My mom had his whole collection and I read it! Couldn’t put it down!❤️??
@Mike . I inherited most of mine from my Dad. He was born in 1925 and the books were gifts. They are very old! I need to check the newer versions to see if the publishers used a more modern vernacular. The older ones are harder, but well worth it
@Sharon I don’t believe his style has been changed!
This is part of his trade mark and what drew so many into his stories!
And the set my mom had is same era too??
I saw these the other day and picked them up more out of respect for Mr.Grey❤️???
@Sharon My moms collection all are hard back and have dust covers and she always kept them separate from other books?❤️
I run across some people who donot care for the way he talked,said it was hard to understand!
My parents were born at the beginning of the century and saw many changes! My mom and I came here from Ireland and my dad came ahead of us to procure a place for us to live!
My dad was born in 1901 and my mom in 1924
Sharon Koonce I post my collections of my books a lot and occasionally I get folks who are genuinely interested and sometimes I have got those who’s intentions are less than honest????❤️But I love books and when I find others who have read and shared my stories I am happy!????❤️???Merry Christmas!
@Mike . Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Ursala K.Le Guin
Stieg Larsson , Maeve Binchy
