Five for Favorites

1. Do you have a favorite author? Ann Ripley is one among several.

2. Have you read everything he or she has written? I've read 5 of 10 titles, so I do have time to relish the remaining 5.

3. Did you LIKE everything? Yes, these are formulaic cozy mysteries, so I basically know what the form will be. I do enjoy each one for its light, relaxing reading.

4. How about a least favorite author? While I dislike particular genres, I cannot think of a particular author who is least favorite.

5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t? David Balducci because of the violence and graphic scenes in his stories. I've heard people talk about his enormous talent, however there are aspects of the content that are outside of my comfort and enjoyment level.

6. Question: Having deeply enjoyed a book by a particular author, are you often disappointed in other titles by the same author?
O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.
~ Psalm 62:8

I used to read cozy mysteries all the time. I liked reading Ann George "Southern Sisters" series.

I can read about violence. I can't stand mushy!

I seem to alternate between violence and romance. Right now the romance is winning out. One of my favorite new authors is Patrick Davis. He has just written a really touching romantic mystery called The Silent Note, and it's one of the best I've read so far this year.
