Happy Friday! We have been in the middle of a heat wave here but it's raining now so maybe we'll finally be able to cool off before it starts to get unbearably hot again. In even bigger news my team, the Netherlands, are in the World Cup Finals. I shall be downtown, dressed in orange, partying with all the other Dutch people on Sunday!
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted each week by Crazy For Books. And in a new twist to it, each week we'll be asked a question so we can get to know each other better.
This weeks question is: Who are your favourite authors and why?
I could name a bunch!
When it comes to chick lit I love Sophie Kinsella, everything she writes is funny. I also love Marian Keyes, there is such a warmth to her writing. There are so many other great authors whose books I grab every time they write a new one - Jennifer Weiner, Lauren Weisberger, Emily Giffin and Gemma Townley.
A couple of years ago I started reading Urban Christian fiction and have found great authors in this genre - ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Victoria Christopher Murray, Jacquelin Thomas. I will pick up anything these ladies write.
I'm also such a fan of Alexander McCall Smith's "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" series so I'm starting to read some of his other books, hoping that I'll enjoy them as well.
