Truthful Tuesday Books

Books butterflies

PCGuyIV continues his Truthful Tuesday prompt with some questions about books.

Do you have a favorite author? If so, who and why? If not, why not?

I have several! For romance novels, I love Jennifer Crusie. She creates very multi-dimensional characters. When I’m in the mood for a detective story, I like the late Lawrence Sanders, especially his Delaney and McNally series. When I want to read a short story, Ray Carver is my guy. He packs so much meaning into so few words. I also enjoy novels and short stories by Haruki Murakami… they’re a bit weird in a good way. And Robert Frost is my favorite poet. Hard to explain “why” with poetry!

What was the first book you remember enjoying reading?

Arty the Smarty! It was about a fish. Let me see if I can find it… Yes! Amazon has it for $149. Yipes, wish I’d kept my little books. 💰

What three books best sum up your taste in literature?

Jennifer Crusie’s Faking It (romance). Ray Carver’s Where I’m Calling From (literary fiction/short stories). The Third Deadly Sin by Lawrence Sanders (murder/drama/police work).

  1. The first book I loved was The Velvet Room by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. I owned it, which I dont know how. We were very poor. Book and toys were rare.
    I borrowed all the Hardy Boys & Nancy Drew books from my school library but I dont remember ANY of the stories. I remember The Velvet Room.

    Arty the Smarty, I must’ve missed that one.
