Authors I have avoided

I like to think that I am adventurous reader. I don't read best-sellers just because they are best-sellers. More often than not, if a book is the new "hot" read, I will avoid it like the plague. This means that there are quite a few "prolific" authors that I have not read.  For example, until last week, I had not read ANY James Patterson books.  Yes, the man who releases 2 to 3 books a month, has been, up until last week, snubbed by me.  I have decided that one of my goals this year is to each month, read at least one book written by an author I have avoided.  So, I will be reading:

January - James Patterson
February - Danielle Steele
March - Robert Galbraith
April - Diana Gabaldon
May - Louis L'Amour
June - Nora Roberts
July - Nicholas Sparks
August - Sandra Brown
September - Bernard Cornwell
October - J.A. Jance
November - Nevada Barr
December - Heather Graham

Each month I will post what book I've read by the author, my thoughts, and decide if I will read more books by the author.

Thanks for reading.



Paying it forward
