John Gierach. Everything he has written.
Love anything by Kate Morton. Rebecca by Daphne duMaurier. How many can I list?!
List as many as you like. I’m trying to broaden my reading and I am just wondering what you all like.
I love Kate Morton !!
Sharyn McCrumb and her Ballad series
Favourite author: Jane Austen. Favourite book by her Persuasion but I think Sense and Sensibility and/or Mansfield Park is her best written.
I also like:
To Kill A Mockingbird
Caribbean Slavery in the Atlantic World
A Gentle Feuding…
The book thief
Jack Kerouac and Paulo Coelho
Favorite author – Lisa Genova. She is a neuroscientist who writes novels about characters with brain injuries/disease/conditions. Her first book was Still Alice – Main character has early-onset Alzheimer’s; her latest book is Every Note Played – main character is a concert pianist who suffers from ALS. She writes so well that you care about the characters (& their care givers & families), while also learning a lot about their condition. Highly recommend everything she has written!
I’m enjoying Deborah Crombie’s Kincaid and James series. Very well written.
Peter May is fantastic, and so too is PD James
I love PD James. She writes great mysteries!!!
Jim Butcher, Alistair MacLean, Elizabeth Peters, Laurie R King, Craig Johnson, Ben Aaronovitch, early Burke books by Andrew Vachss and many more.
Allen Bradley, the Flavia de Luce series….what wit, humor, and creativity! I just discovered Liz Nugent, an Irish author who wrote two thrillers that I think are so much better than most I’ve read, like Girl on a Train.
My favorite author is Agatha Christie and I love all her books and short stories!
Haruki Murakami – Norwegian Wood
Anything by James Lee Burke, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, Lee Child, Joseph Knox, Sebastian Faulks, Daphne du Maurier…I could go on and on!
