Yesterday's Top Ten Tuesday asked about authors we've tried once and want to read more. I'm a day late, but decided to play along anyway. Here's my list:
1. Meg Wolitzer (The Interestings)
This will certainly appear on my year-end favorites list. The Position is just $1.99 for the kindle edition now. Have you read it? Can you recommend any of her other novels?
2. Ken Follett (Fall of Giants)
My first book was both long and the beginning of a trilogy. Winter of the World is on my shelf and the third installment, The Edge of Eternity, was just released.
3. Anne Enright (The Forgotten Waltz)
Beautifully written, maybe a little depressing. Her prize-winning novel, The Gathering, will be next.
4. Graham Greene (The End of the Affair)
Was it the novel or Colin Firth's narration? Either way, I definitely want more.
5. Claire Messud (The Woman Upstairs)
I was so impressed with this novel, I picked up The Emperor's Children at the library book sale.
6. Elinor Lipman (The View from Penthouse B)
I'm sorry it took so long for me to finally read one of her novels. The Inn at Lake Devine will be next.
7. John Williams (Stoner)
This one is actually an all-time favorite, so I really hope his other books are as good.
8. Junot Diaz (This is How You Lose Her)
A complete surprise...I never expected to love this book. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is near the top of my TBR pile.
9. W. Somerset Maugham (The Painted Veil)
It's been over five years, but I still plan to return to this author.
10. Daphne DuMaurier (Rebecca)
Why have I never moved beyond Rebecca? Maybe My Cousin Rachel will be next...
