5 of Favorites: Booking Through Thursday

Today's Booking Through Thursday Questions Are:

1. Do you have a favorite author?

I don't think that I have a favorite author. But if I had to make a choice I would say Paulo Coelho. I read "The Alchemist" and feel in love with his work.

2. Have you read everything he or she has written?

I have not read all his books. I have read two of them ("The Alchemist" and "By The River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept) and have a third one that I have hope to finish this month ("The Witch of Portobello")

3. Did you LIKE everything?

No, I didn't like both of the books that I read. "By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept" was a little odd of me. I really didn't like it that much.

4. How about a least favorite author?

I am going to have to say Stephenie Meyer. I really don't care for her. I don't know if it is because she is over hyped or what. I tried to read her adult book "The Host" and couldn't finish it. She goes on and on.

5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?

Tananarive Due. I really want to like her work but I just can't. I have tried two of her works, "Joplin's Ghost" (which I blogged about) and "My Soul To Keep"(which I didn't finish and plan to re-read")


  1. I reading Twilight, and I'm on page 291. (Yes, I know I'm behind. sigh.) I would agree with you that Meyer is dragging it out. Please visit to see my answers.

  2. I love Coelho's The Alchemist too and I agree with you that By the River Piedra... was odd, I only read it halfway and never picked it up again after that. I have all his other books (gifts from friends who think that I need his collection of books for some reason)

  3. I have enjoyed The Alchemist and I read lots of mixed reviews about the book and Coelho. But still, I enjoy his books. :)
