Meme: A-Z of favorites

I saw this meme over at Bookgirl's Nightstand and here I am - as you know I cannot resist making another list, even if it's of books I already read! Th original idea comes from Simon at Stuck in a Book and it looks like it's been picked up by many blogs - thanks Simon! The point is to make an alphabetical list of favorite books, by author. I didn't think of books for each letter, but since they're meant to be favorite books I'd rather leave them blank than fill in just anything. Anyone else want to play? I'm sure you all need more book ideas as much as I do! :-)

Good list. I haven't heard of some of these, so some interesting titles to check. I read The Magus some years ago - thanks for reminding me it's such a good book.

Hi there - I'd like to re-read The Magus soon, actually, I also read it a long time ago and I remember liking it but being very confused... Maybe I'd understand more of it the second time around!

I almost put The Magus on my list. That's such a fantastic book isn't it? I see we both chose Time Traveller's Wife :)
It's so much fun reading everyone's lists.

Glad you enjoyed it!
I've only read Haddon, from your list, so lots more to look out for...

joanna said...

Iliana - I know, I LOVE reading everyone else's lists!

Simon - if you liked the Haddon then I'm pretty sure you'll like some of the other ones!

ya know Art, the fact that this is the third identical post about Paolo Coelho that you've left on my blog is really encouraging me to never mention his name again - well done!
