Google+ The Introverted Reader: Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

Thursday, July 8, 2010

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

The idea of the Hop is to network and find cool blogs you might not have found otherwise. Hop on over to Crazy-for-Books and join in the fun!

This week's question: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

I love Charles de Lint for his characters. Many of his books are set in the fictional city of Newford and a lot of characters wander in and out of these books, so they start to feel like old friends. I love L. M. Montgomery because she's the brain behind Anne Shirley! I love Lee Smith because she's also a Southern Appalachian woman and she writes about our part of the world perfectly. She gives us a voice in literature.

I read practically anything fiction, but mostly fantasy, historical fiction, YA fantasy, and Southern lit.  I host a meme every Thursday, Character Connection, where we spotlight our favorite characters, and would love to have you join in the fun!  I recently passed 250 followers, so to celebrate that and my upcoming birthday, I'm having a big giveaway! You can win all three of Gail Carriger's books or four of my favorite historical fiction books. If Book Depository ships to you for free, you're eligible to win!

    I like Charles de Lint, too. I haven't read anything by him in a while, though, so I should probably catch up.

    If you have time, stop in and say hi at Manga Maniac Cafe
