Booking Through Thursday: 5 For Favorites

1. Do you have a favorite author?
No- I like lots of authors! I really don't have one favorite, if I list one I have to list another and if I list another, then another and another and another etc!

2. Have you read everything he or she has written?
Since I don't have a favorite author I'm going to answer this question with an author I've read a lot of. One author I've read almost all of their work is the comic artist/illustrator Adrian Tomine. I think I need to still read his first book 32 stories, I also haven't read the few books he's edited.

3. Did you LIKE everything?
I like all of Adrian Tomine's books and comics I've read.

4. How about a least favorite author?
Not really. One book I rather hated was the Lovely Bones so I probably will never read another book by Alice Sebold.

5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?
Sarah Vowell- I haven't given up yet though! I've read part of The Wordy Shipmates and will try it again at a later date and I also have Assassination Vacation to give a try!


  1. My answers would be so similar to yours :-)!

  2. I have Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell to try...

  3. I'm finishing Wordy Shipmates sometime soon. It's ok, but not Vowell's best. I personally thought Assassination Vacation was better, and that The Partly Cloudy Patriot was even better than either of the other two. I haven't read her other two books Take the Cannoli or Radio On yet.

  4. Someone else who didn't name a favorite! I'm so glad I'm not alone. Haha!

  5. I have lots of favorite authors, too. I just started listening to Assassination Vacation on audiobook. I think Sarah Vowell is one of those authors (like David Sedaris or Neil Gaiman) who really adds to the story by reading it herself.

  6. How could anyone pick just one author?

  7. It is hard to pick just one favorite author.
    I have the Lovely Bones in my TBR.

  8. Veens- :D

    S. Krishna- I hope you like it more than me. I got about 80 pages in and realized I hadn't remembered anything i read!

    BookChic- Oh good i'm glad! I guess maybe the concept of Assassination Vacation sounds a bit more interesting to me!

    Literary Feline- It's too hard, no way could I answer... now movies I definitely would have an answer there!

    Jessi- You know I think you are right. I've heard her talk somewhere and it was rather enjoyable!

    bermudaonion- I know, maybe one author per genre, but that still might be pushing it!

    naida- Hopefully you like the Lovely Bones more than me, I pretty much hated it!
