This week's Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Anglers Rest and we are asked the following:
Question - Apart from being readers, many of us collect books on a specific subject or by a particular author. What books or which author do you collect?
I have several authors of whom I collect books, but usually because they are part of a series. I have all the David Eddings Belgariad and Mallorean books, the first 8 Sookie Stackhouse books, a lot by Pier Anthony, etc. Romances, however, I will by because of the author. I have a plethora of Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood, Victoria Alexander, Nora Roberts and Jude Deveraux.
As far as subject goes, I tend to like historical mysteries set at the turn of the last century or during the Napoleonic Wars (not that I prefer those time periods, but it seems that many authors do and I like their books). They are by C. S. Harris (Sebastian St. Cyr), Tasha Alexander (Lady Emily), Deanna Raybourn (Lady Julia), Rhys Bowen (Molly Murphy and Her Royal Spyness) and Shirley Tallman (Sarah Woolson).
